Not sure if this would class as a true cruella as it's not really half and half... more 1/3 Aquamarine, 2/3 Violet Gem... but I am in love with the Aquamarine, it's gorgeous! Goes really nicely with the Violet Gem, but I was hoping for a slightly darker, more saturated result with the purple.

Roots are due so I will top up the colour and try not diluting.

First pic is the day it was done and straightened (with bonus boyfriend face lol). Next 3 are all today, one day after first wash and natural wavy/curly mess!

Thanks, guys :) I'm on 3rd wash and the purple is fading through the ends but the blue is still bright. So starting to look a little unicorn-y, which I  love! The effect with a French plait is also pretty cool :)

 Topped up the colour this week - I have learned that Violet Gem is best used without diluting, I am MUCH happier with the result this time. Photo doesn't really do it justice, but it's much brighter and saturated. I'm tempted to have it all over!

Still very much enjoying the Aquamarine, though. Will probably keep this combo for a while.

This is lovely! How light was your hair before you colored?

Thanks :)

Base-wise, my lengths were very light as I have white/silver before this. After all these years of bleaching & colouring myself, I still cannot manage an even bleach job so my roots vary from golden to pale yellow.

The blue is quite forgiving I've found, the purple less so. Turns very warm pink on the darker parts.

Both colours fade to silver on my lengths. Looks very cool!
