Christmas Without Snow: Party By The Pool

Posted on November 30, 2012 by Karen Aitken

Many a Christmas of my youth was spent splashing away with my siblings and cousins in a swimming pool. The perfect relief from the sizzling temperatures was a quick dunk after lunch in the ice cold water. We played silly games, had races and dived off things we weren't supposed to until our parents called us out of the pool for some dinner fresh off the barbecue. Then came the agonising 30 minute wait before our parents would let us swim again, then we were back in the pool until well after the sun had gone down.


I couldn't make an Aussie Christmas collection without including a sparkling blue like this one. Party by the Pool is a gorgeous peacock jelly that refuses to photograph correctly! It's much greener in real life. It's also filled with tiny blue and green glitter flecks that sparkle in the light. So hard to capture without sunlight! 


Party by the Pool is probably the most sheer of all the shades I have created to date, but this was necessary to achieve the blue/green that we wanted and still allow the glitter to sparkle through the base. It can also be layered over a silver foil for a great effect, but might I also suggest layering it over Hot Summer Nights - the result is stunning!


I'm so excited for you guys to see this one in person - these photos do it absolutely no justice!
