kit - Speed Demon + Happy Birthday Boo!

kit's Speed Demon is dedicated to my younger son, Boo, who is 3 years old today!

Some of you already know this, but Boo (not his real name, just a nickname) has autism and a Global Developmental Delay.  Up until six months ago, he was non verbal, delayed in pretty much everything and possessed limited social skills.  Thanks to early intervention therapies, and the fact that he is like a trencherman in his stoic efforts to catch up, he is now speaking in full sentences and is only six months behind his peers in terms of his development and social skills.  If he keeps this up, he will be able to start school with his peers.  He's freaking awesome

And he has teeth like a dinosaur.

Speed Demon is a colour that, when I bring it out to wear, he goes crazy. 

I tried teaching him to say 'turqoise' but all I get is 'toy-keys'.  He talks like he's from Jersey. 

Speed Demon is a really lovely, shimmery turquoise.  Definitely click to see the larger picture.

The formula is a little runny and sheer with this.  It took four coats to get to opaque which, as you all know, is one more than I have the patience or inclination for.

But I can't argue with the colour and, ultimately, that's what it comes down to for me.  This is just a superb colour.  In some lights, it looks like a creme.  In others, a bright shimmer.  A true chameleon.

What do you guys think?  Is this a 'toy-keys' you could fall in love with?
