Not sure what color families you're going for, but here are some that might have potential? :psyduck: They sounded nice at the time lol. I went with marbles since you mentioned Pride Streak, but it's just ideas, idk.

Purple into Uber Diamond sounds like a very nice purple geode, either as a marble or a fade! That would certainly work with 'jewel tones' lol. And I love me a gold base :D

I can't decide if I like Saturn or the purple from the egg plug's Natural color option. Both look kind of similar to me. As of now, whichever I select is going to be marbled with the base color(s) from Permafrost (I can't tell if it's just one metallic grey or actually two metallic greys marbled together). I just really like the thought of a dark purple marbled with a lighter color like grey.

Yeah, it's hard to tell. I've seen people's pics of Saturn and it looks like a good mix of purple and blue, but the promo pic looks very blue to me. The Egg plug's Natural looks more purple, but I haven't seen any pics of it on here.

peridot green faded into halloween black?


Possibly a triple fade of the two shades of peridot to halloween black? Not sure if they still do that, worth a shot though!

Love this idea! If they won't do tripe fades how about a split fade involving Peridot for the green, Halloween Black for the background color, and Diamond/Uber Diamond or a pearly white for the white part of the orbs?

i ended up ordering a split fade of peridot down to halloween black (got a warning that halloween black might overpower the peridot to a degree. ) with a starlight glow base and starlight glow spooky seconds

thank you all!!

That sounds pretty! Which part of peridot, or is it the whole thing fading to halloween black? I'm assuming it's just the greenish part.

That sounds really neat! Can't wait to see it. I just did a custom order myself. Chatted a good while with Elise and we ended up going with the purple from Teamwork marbled with the silver from Cunning. I was going to go with a lighter silver, but opted not to since I wanted it to be more balanced and didn't want the purple to overwhelm the lighter silver.

Same. I'm very excited about it. I almost just now changed that purple to the purple from Cosmic Nebula, but the Teamwork purple looks darker and I think it'd look better. I wish they'd combine orders, because then I'd ask to add a small/3 Xar in Cosmic Nebula to it. That said, I think I'm going to wait and see what ideas I get for a custom.

Hmm... Small Snowstrider/Echo in split marble, perhaps in Pearce's Hickory for the base, Natural Egg Purple for the main shaft color, and the Dark Plum from the Chance's natural marbled in? I wonder if that would look good.

I think two purples would be too similar in color honestly, I would go for a lighter purple like Amethyst and the Egg purple marbled!
