: : Well, I finally got Kimia to come through for me. It's been an
: : interesting journey, but my palm is a lovely deep black cherry.

: Congrats on your success with Kimia, Jeanie! I have recently been
: using Kimia myself and I've been getting *great* color from her...
: but only when I didn't use a terp. I just put a design on my
: girlfriend's foot using completely unterped Kimia, and the results
: were excellent. Her toes started off a striking red color, and then
: went to plum before settling at black cherry or even darker. The
: of her foot got stuck in cinnamon for awhile, but now it's a sort
: earthy red, especially on the bolder lines. The pic I attached to
: this message shows the stain a few hours after paste removal. I
: I had a later pic, but this at least shows the start of the reds,
: more certainly followed.
: I may have to try using just a tiny bit of tea tree oil to my next
: batch. Maybe I can spike the reds a bit more without overshooting.
: With terps, Kimia goes into this brick red/brownish color for me.
: Interestingly, though, when the stain goes, it just
: phase. Not for me, anyway.
: : The funny thing, though, was that I was playing around with it
: again
: : last night-- just 24 hrs after doing my palm-- and it's hardly
: : stained at all. Interesting that there was such a quick demise
: : just one day!
: I've got a design on my heel/ankle right now that was done with 5-
: old Kimia, again unterped. I'll have to see if I have the same
: problems. But my apartment has been 85 degrees since I got home, so
: it may not be a fair comparison.
