I've asked about an opal split on hanns (with a peridot base) in the past and they said they couldn't do it. :sniffing:

I kind of get why with the whole toy highlight opal has though. Idk, let me know if you ticket and get told something different!

Aww, yeah, that's right. I didn't think of that. Well, maybe an Amethyst/Diamond marble instead, then!

has anyone asked if you can get an opal marble without the highlight, so you can get a nice split minus interfering highlight?

Idk, I'd be totally fine with the silver highlight from Opal getting on Hanns' leaves. It'd be like those green leaves with the silvery underside that really exist. I think it'd be beautiful tbh.

Man, I was expecting my list of possibilities for my custom to be "Nope, nope, nope" and instead I got "Yes but might not turn out great" "Yes" and "yes" so now I just need to decide between them!

What are your thoughts on the proposed color combinations?

I had an idea for an interesting color scheme. I was hoping I'd find a place where someone already did it, but since I haven't found it I would like everyone's opinion. I'm thinking of getting a Nox in a metallic color fade like this:

Kind of like the car in the upper left corner of this photo maybe, but without the yellowy tint

What I was originally thinking was a combination between the metallic green of this chance and a darker version of the metallic purple of this nox

I've also considered the upper part of this one shifting toward the metallic purple.

What are your thoughts on the proposed color combinations? Also, should it shift from purple base to green tip or purple tip to green base?

Just thinking about color families, it would probably be better to have it be a three part fade of green -> blue -> purple. The blue is the common shade, so I think it would transition better without feeling muddy, since purple and green mixed make greenish-brown. Nox should probably be able to handle a triple fade because of it's signature color!

Green could be a pretty stunning tip, but so could purple. I guess it's up to your personal preference!

Could somebody please help me match these colors up to colors BD offers? Metallics are fine, preferred even, I just don't want to resort to hex codes.

I think those are the 2015 alexandrite colors, just in a split fade.

You think grey? The base looks green to me.
I spent some time browsing the gallery and came up with this guy

It's Alexandrite Pink tip faded to the shaft base color of Nox's Night Drake with Spritz's Signature tip as the base. Glitter the hell out of it, of course.

They're similar but a bit off. The tip might be, though without the pearl or metallic or whatever added to it.

I'm doing some planning for a possible custom in Enchanted Apple and I would like the base to be a different color than the shaft. Not sure if they'd let me do it, but there's no harm in ticketing and asking, so I'm gonna try. The problem is I'm having a tough time deciding what color I want the base to be if it is possible. Can anyone suggest a good color that would go with an Enchanted Apple shaft?

They're not going to let you do it, unfortunately. It'll make it a custom highlight and they don't offer them.
You could get the Enchanted Apple shaft color with a different color base, but it won't have the highlight.
