SCARLET - SWAROVSKI FLATBACK
The Power of Scarlet
Red is thought to be the oldest color of all, dating back to the Neolithic era. Early cave paintings were created with an earthy red shade made from ochre. In Roman times, red meant courage. In today’s China, India, Greece and Albania, red is a symbol of good fortune. For Western society, it represents energy and power, passion and excitement.
But even more electrifying than “ordinary” red is Scarlet, which has just joined Swarovski’s Fall/Winter 2018/19 color palette. This arresting, rich red crystal shade has magnificent standout; there’s a hint of blue that is more subdued than Light Siam, but brighter than Ruby and Siam. Unlike other red crystals, Scarlet is available in larger sizes, with a homogenous color intensity throughout the foiled Round and Fancy Stones, AND Flat Backs. Most importantly, it has a significant ecological advantage: unlike Light Siam or Siam, cadmium-free (<40ppm).
Swarovski® Flatback No Hotfix Crystals are crystal elements backed with platinum foiling for extra brilliance and protection. They can be easily applied to a variety of carrier materials using standard glues and are available in a multitude of sizes, colors, shapes, and cuts.
Make your nail designs stand out with brilliant sparkle using Swarovski Flat Back Crystals. Have fun and Create Your Own Style by applying a multitude of sizes ranging from SS 3 - SS 20
- SS3 is the smallest flatbback, the 2000 Rose Fb which is the original 8-faceted cut featuring low profile perfect for nail art due to its tiny size. Color choices are limited.
- SS5, SS7, SS8, SS9 & SS10 are available in 2058 XILION Rose Enhanced cut. This flatback crystal features 14 alternating facets for intensified color. The table is also smaller and a higher profile allows more space for the facets to catch and reflect sunlight.
- SS12, SS14, SS16, & SS20 are available in the new XIRIUS 1088 cut. This cut features 16 facets and a small table. Using its most advanced patented cutting technology yet, X-Cut, combined with the latest crystal glass material, Advanced Crystal, and Silver Mirror Finish, Swarovski has created a final product which resembles a brilliant diamond more closely than ever.
You can even mix and match our crystals with other colors, shapes and sizes!
*For nail art, we recommend using gel to adhere the crystals. Gel does not harm the foil backing or the crystal surface as most nail glues do. Cyanoacrylate is a corrosive chemical found in most glues approved for use on nails, it will damage the foil backing of the crystal as well as create a cloudy appearance if it touches the crystal surface.
