What exactly is a fashion primer?
Comment by Jason Sin 15 hours ago
I used ELC with double 20 vol as carrier.
Comment by Lupe Voss 16 hours ago

@Jason, what is the carrier? If it is Universal 0N, you might be depositing too much tone. Try it with equal parts of developer and ELC or Intense base.

That is so cool. I need it in my life too!!!!

Thanks Lupe! So here is a picture of what he's thinking of getting, the second to lightest shade...

I've swatched out a few formulas on white swatches, but nothing really looks really close. Pure Pigment Green seems to overpower even Pure Pigment Blue...(1g of each and it just looks mint green). The closest I've gotten was with 2g PPB and 0.5g PPG.

40g ELC
1g Pastel V (neutralize the NRP)
1g L. B/B
.5g Pure Pigment Green
80mL 20vol

Post pics!!!

You can use ELC on grey hair. Example for a level 10
ELC 40g
Lt VB 2g
Lt YO 2g
Pastel B 2g
20 volume 80ml (for even lift and deposit)

The VB & YO is your grey coverage. The past B will control the warmth for the other 30%.
Make sure to apply and re-apply. If the hair line is taking the pure tone too much, mix (FSP) 10N + 30 volume to kill some of the pure tones.

Comment by Lupe Voss on Tuesday

Drop your developer down. 30 volume can be too much when used with levels 7-10. You have levels that are higher in ammonia. You can rely on the lift from the level not the developer.
Try it out.
If you theoretically formulate correctly and your end result is too warm, your developer is too high.

Comment by Jason Sin on Saturday
So my friend decided that he wants a Tiffany Blue color for his hair, I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on formula?
I was thinking that after I prelighten him, I will use:
40g ELC
1g Pure Pigment Gree
1g L. B/B
80mL 20vol
What do you think?
