It's another Nibs and Nails ink review! Hooray! So, go over to Right on the Nail to see the nail polish that was inspired by this neat blue ink.
The 1670 line of inks has been the perennial favorite in the fountain pen community. Each new ink has been met with much expectation. This one was a bit of an outlier. I think it was the second in the series (just after Rouge Hematite), and it wasn't an immediate hit. It didn't have as much shimmer in it, and it doesn't have a sheen to it. I know this is the second version of the ink (they did a re-formulation on it), and I know I like it. I think they added some more shimmer to the ink, but I'm not sure what else was changed. Anyway, I really like the base-color in this one. It's a really great blue. I'm probably not even going to shake the bottle next time I fill a pen from it.
Check it out below, check out the nail polish version, and let us know what you think.

I didn't want to use too many of these pictures, but sunlight sometimes really brings out the flash in these inks. I think it did less for this ink than some others. Probably because it lacks the sheen of some other 1670 inks.
