    Holy Moly these are BEAUTIFUL

    Posted by Victoria C on May 22nd 2019

    First thing I have to say is For the amount you get, you can’t find any other site that can beat it considering these are CERTIFIED! Other websites will charge a heck of a lot more, that is why now I only purchase my dyes here! Second, the color intensity is so good! I tested each dye in a bath bomb mix and they perform beautifully! And when mixed with poly 80 I didn’t have any issue with staining.
