Do you have an ink dependence? I can help...

Organics Studios Nickel

I have a bunch of these Organics Studios ink samples, and I haven't used most of them. Some of them have chemistry problems that caused them to clump up (I'm looking at you, every red in the collection), and some of them are fine, but just not colors that I want to use. 

Nickel belongs in that second category. It doesn't have any chemical problems, and it flows really well in the Lamy that I was using it in. It spreads a little on absorbent papers, but it doesn't seem to feather so that's fine. 

The problem for me is that I just don't think I like the color. It's too light. It's a nice color if you're looking for a frosty turquoise, but it's too light for me. I did a double review of this ink because it didn't look quite right on Rhodia. It didn't soak in at all and it took forever to dry, so it looks worse than it should. It looks pretty good on the Quattro pad that I got a little while back (and have been playing with). 

I don't know when/if these will be available again, but there are bottles of it around the internet, and if you like the color, then snap it up.

You'll have noticed that I definitely thought it was called "Neon" when I was writing these up. I don't know why. There's an ink called Neon in the collection, but it isn't this one. .
