– [Katie] Hello, everyone.
My name is Katie Carson and I am the duchess of
suds at this channel. And I met someone really cool at VidCon. You guys. Here she is. – [Cristine] It’s me Cristine again. And I hear you make soap. – I do. – With holo – That’s right. With holo. – I would like to wash myself in that. – That’s right. It’s just for you, Cristine. That’s right. It’s Cristine, the holo queen. Cristine has a nail art channel that she makes lots of
really cool designs. She does kids kits. It’s a lot of fun over there. And she recently just launched her very own nail polish collection. It’s 100% sold out online, you can’t get your hands on it. The only people who could
buy it were the people who went to VidCon and visited her booth. So I got two of them. I got one for me so that I
could wear it on my own fingers and just revel in it’s holo glory and I picked up one for you guys. It’s vegan. It’s cruelty free. It’s made in New York City. And it comes with five nail polishes, look at the holo on the inside. Her packaging is just… (kissing) Two of these items are an opaque polish and then three of them are holo tacos or holo top coats. They make a beautiful,
iridescent, sparkly shimmer in the sunshine. They are so gorgeous. They last forever. I’ve actually had these on my nails for almost four days now. They’re only chipping a little bit and I am so hard on my nails. All you have to do to enter to win is subscribe to the channel and leave a comment down below. None of this follow me on Instagram, do a million, bazillion

this holo Taco collection and they will also receive a bar
of soap the that I make today, inspired by Cristine. So, without further ado,
let’s make some soap. So, my brother Kenneth, (laughs) decided to put my lye water decided to put my lye water in this stainless steel cup. in this stainless steel cup. And I don’t remember where Caleb got this, but this is definitely his cup and we definitely stole it. – [Kenny] Hey, whatever works. – [Katie] So for those of
y’all who have never watched a cold-process soap
making tutorial or video, this is the traditional
method of making soap. What you call, “lye soap.” Anytime you’re watching a video where someone is melting down a soap base, adding color and stuff
and then re-pouring it, that’s traditionally called glycerine soap or melt and pour soap. They’re not actually making
the chemical bond of a soap. They’re really just re-heating soap that’s already been made. So, to make it you gotta have a hydroxide. You have to be very careful with it. That’s why I have gloves on
because it is quite dangerous. This is what is found in drain cleaners. It eats up stuff, typically. (laughs) On the pH scale it’s a 14, so it’s very, very alkaline. It’s a base. And then in here, we have
five different types of oils. We have olive oil, we have coconut oil, we have palm oil and the palm oil I use
is RSPO certified so, it does not contribute to deforestation, and it is also organic. We have sweet almond oil and we have just a
little bit of castor oil. They’re both sitting
now at room temperature. So I’m going to begin by
pouring this into the oils. You always want to pour
your lye-water solution into the oils and not
the other way around. And then slightly less traditional, I will be mixing this
with a stick blender. Back in the olden days, when people made lye
soap out of the tallow and the animal fats that
they had sitting around, having rendered since they wasted nothing, they would mix it by hand
and sometimes it took hours. And, well, we don’t have hours so, we’re gonna blend it up
with this immersion blender that we got from Amazon. I’ll leave you guys a link down below. (techno pop music). Now we’re gonna have
five colors in this soap. So, I have here five
different pouring containers. I got one of these from Walmart and the rest of these
little guys from Amazon. And now, I’m going to evenly distribute the soap I’m going to evenly distribute the soap into these containers. Kenneth, they’re not big enough. – [Kenny] (mumbles) – [Katie] Reeee. I still
have this much left. – [Kenny] Another container m’lord? – [Katie] But I had only planned
for five colors. (giggles) – [Kenny] More colors. – [Katie] Oh, no! It’s
not enough. (giggles) – [Kenny] Oh my Gosh. – [Katie] (laughing) – [Kenny] Can you put more in there? – [Katie] Barely. Otherwise
when I put my stick blender in to mix it it will fall out. – [Kenny] Goodness, girl.
You did not plan this. – [Katie] That’s literally what I said at the beginning of this video. I did not plan this. – [Kenny] Well, here’s
another one for your– – [Katie] For my crappy planning? – [Kenny] I was going to
say for your ratchet muh… For your ratchet soap talk. – [Katie] (giggling). – [Kenny] Where you’re like, back in the olden days they
used to make soap using tallow. And then you can’t even get
enough containers for it. – [Katie] (laughing). – [Kenny] We don’t have time for that. We don’t even have time
to count or measure. – [Katie] What I do have time
for is bossing you around. (slapping) Well, I don’t know where
we’re going to end up, but I do know where we’re going to start and that is by moving all
these things out of the way. The first color I would
like to do is purple. And I will leave all the
colors I am using today down in the description box below in case you would like to use
them in your own creations. Be them epoxy creations, Be them epoxy creations, like a resin creations, or bath bombs or bath bombs or soap or soap or mineral makeup. You name it. Let’s blend this in. (techno pop music) I just poured in the fragrance oil I just poured in the fragrance oil. We’re using icy shine,
today, from Nature’s Garden. It’s a gorgeous fragrance oil. And to each one of these colors, I’m going to be adding just a little bit of Sparkle Me Plenty. of Sparkle Me Plenty. This is from Mad Mica’s. Just gonna blend that in by hand and this is what is going to create just a little bit of shimmer
inside the soap itself. Now you can’t put holo inside the soap, but this little bit of mica but this little bit of mica is definitely going to show up. It’s kinda what it’s for is to add a little bit of shimmer shimmer to your cold process soap. All right and now that that’s mixed in, let’s pour it into our molds after this quick commercial break. These two soap loaves are on an incline as you can probably see. as you can probably see. And that is because we’re gonna create a diagonal design today, a diagonal design today, so I’m gonna pour two stripes in so I’m gonna pour two stripes in just like that. Come over here, do the same over here. One stripe down, one stripe back. One stripe down, one stripe back. And I’m gonna pour another
stripe down over here. Another stripe down over here. Another stripe down over here. Maybe we’ll come back
real quick on this one. This is just to get them
relatively even on both loaves. And now that all the purple is in, I’m gonna go ahead and
mix up the next layer and we’re gonna flip
these molds to other side so it creates a diagonal line on the opposite side of the mold. Okay, it’s time to pour the next layer so, I’m gonna take the one
down and I’m gonna flip it. And you do have to make
sure that your soap is basically 100% set up if you’re gonna do it like this. It’s a very sharp incline, but the next color is gonna
be this yellow right here. Honestly when I picked these colors, I’m not gonna lie, I didn’t really have a color palette. I just had a bunch of colors
that I thought looked good. Gotta scrapy scrapy
out my little containy. Gotta scrapy scrapy
out my little containy. All right cool! Next layer! Okay, next color is this fuchsia. Okay, next color is this fuchsia. And I am gonna help it break the fall by putting my spatula here, just ’cause I don’t want
it to puncture that purple. Those first two layers are
always the easiest ones to pour. And I’m gently, gonna wiggle this around, make it even all the way down. make it even all the way down. Okay, got in as much as I could so once again, just trying to pat this down. just trying to pat this down. Make it as flat and even as possible. Okay, all the pink is in so it’s time for the next color. Y’all look at this color. So this particular mica
is called Tahitian Teal. It’s from Mad Mica’s and it’s already kinda shiny anyway, but you add in that
extra snowflake sparkle and it’s just the bee’s knees. By the way, I have been getting
a lot of comments about mica and the mica we use and mica mining and sustainability and stuff so, a lot of the micas we use are synthetically created in a lab. are synthetically created in a lab. They’re not even mined. And the rest of them
are ethically sourced. So you can feel good about
purchasing Royalty Soaps because we’re only using
micas that are ethical and or manmade. and or manmade. All right, time to flip
this on its side again. I’ll probably have to stand in
a different place this time. Fair warning, the camera may turn off during this pour, because it’s giving me a
little warning sign right now, but it’s too late! I must keep moving. Gonna pour down this side as well. And once I get that first layer on, I’m not even using it to
break the fall anymore because it’s completely set up down there. Okay, let’s smooth this
layer out all the way down. Okay, let’s smooth this
layer out all the way down. I can clean up any little
messy drips that happen, don’t worry. Woo! The camera didn’t die! It lasted! Yippee! It lasted! Yippee! Okay, I’m gonna change the battery pack and we gone come back to the next layer. Now (mumbles) were flying my
the seat of my pants here, I decided that after doing
four diagonal layers, the last three are
gonna be straight on top to add a little bit of a contrast, make it even more interesting. So the next color we have to do is orange and I’m just gonna put that right on top. Don’t even have to break the fall ’cause I know they’re
plenty thick to hold it. And again, for those of y’all who
have maybe never watched cold-process soap making, it continues to get thicker
as you work with it. I’ve been working with this
soap for a very long time now. Certain recipes thicken
faster than other recipes. And certain fragrance oils also
sort of thicken your batter. I’m actually working with
a fragrance oil today that thickens it significantly. Because I wanted to be able
to do all of the layers with one soap batch and it’s really, really hard to do that and it’s really, really hard to do that unless you have a fragrance oil that will make your layers set up quickly. This is getting
significant;y harder to do, the longer I go on but, I’m just taping it down completely. I’m just taping it down completely. And then I’m kinda smushing it up onto the side of the green. And once again, I’ll clean up my molds after each layer so that none of them get messed up. Gonna wipe up these edges. So satisfying. So satisfying. And the orange didn’t quite reach the edge over on this side, but it’s not big deal. I’m not gone worry about it. All right, I’m gonna
mix up the next layer. The next layer I put on was pink. And while I was putting it on I was like, dude I have one more layer dude I have one more layer and I don’t know what I’m gonna do for it. I was looking through all
my colors and I’m like, I’m just not pleased with any of them. But I figured it out
y’all, I figured it out. Black! We should do black on top, so that holo really stands out. Okay, so, technically this isn’t black. Technically this is dark gray, Technically this is dark gray, but I didn’t want to mix up black oxide. but I didn’t want to mix up black oxide. I didn’t think that
that would go very well with what we were trying to do here. I really wanted to use a mica, so I ended using a black mica instead, which is never going to get
like a black black color with the soap recipe that I’m using. It’s just gonna end up being
like I said a very dark gray. Which will probably match the
colors a little better anyway. My scrapy scrapy don’t like
can out of that containy and I’m just gonna smooth
this out over the top. Make sure it gets the very
edge of the soap mold. I can’t wait to texture
the top and do the holo, because let me tell you guys, the members of the royal court have been asking for a
complete glitter holo top have been asking for a
complete glitter holo top with nothing else on it
for such a long time. This is the perfect soap to do it on. And I am gonna add like I said a little bit of texture on top, not only because it looks well a little better most of the time, but also because that will help the holo
shine in a special way that will help the holo
shine in a special way to have a little bit of
curvature on top of the soap. All right so let me scrapy scrapy the teeny tiny bit out of
my containy that’s left. I’m gonna bang those down. The top has set up enough The top has set up enough so that I can give it a
little bit of texture. I’m just gonna come all the way down. I’m not gonna like, do a big thing really just slight texturing. Come over here, do that same thing. Just kinda touch the top. Just kinda touch the top. We’re gonna make this
one slightly different than the other one, ooh aren’t we rebellious. Okay! Time to holo. Okay! Time to holo. Now the first type of
holo I’m gonna put on is this holographic silver glitter, the eco-friendly kind. This is from Crafter’s Choice. This is a more fine holo glitter. This is a more fine holo glitter. Bramble Berry has a fine holo glitter, obviously wholesale supplies
plus which is Crafter’s Choice, has a fine glitter. has a fine glitter. This is just the one I have
in my studio right now, so this is the one I’m using. And this is just to give the
holo a base, like I said, to sit on. The goal of course, is to get the entire top
completely coated in holo. is to get the entire top
completely coated in holo. I don’t wanna see very much black at all. Also I didn’t even think about it, but now these are really
gonna match my fingernails. Look at the spoon, ooh! Look at the spoon, ooh! And now I’m gonna take
some large holo glitter. You can see that in
the camera really well. This is from Bramble Berry and
it’s really big glitter hex, so it’s gonna sit right on
top of that other glitter and I am just going to put a ton of this. and I am just going to put a ton of this. We bought this glitter,
because I use it so often, we bought like pound of it I think and it is really really wack to see a pound of holo glitter wack to see a pound of holo glitter I can tell you that. Now obviously there’s
gonna be a few little spots that don’t have it on it because I did texture the top, it’s not completely flat. So those very tips of the edges might not have like a
whole sticking to it, but besides that, it’s going to be completely covered. it’s going to be completely covered. It looks kinda like a CD right now. This is everything I ever wanted
to do to the top of a soap. Oh yes! Oh my gosh! Oh yes! Oh my gosh! Oh yes! Oh my gosh! Oh yes! Oh my gosh! (laughs) This is the best day of my life! Okay so, let’s spritz the
top with rubbing alcohol and then I’m gonna leave it as is. I’m not gonna dump off any
extra glitter right now because I want as much to
stick to the top of this soap as humanly possible. We’ll knock all of the
extra off tomorrow morning. Look at the shimmer when I
spritz it with rubbing alcohol. Ooh! All right cool! Ooh! All right cool! I’m gonna let those sit and bring you guys in for a close-up. Holey moley! Holey moley! (laughs) Look at the glitter! The whole thing dowsed in glitter. The whole thing dowsed in glitter. If you don’t like glitter, this
ain’t the soap for you sis. So I am gonna let this
sit for 18 to 24 hours So I am gonna let this
sit for 18 to 24 hours and then I am going to come back and we are going to chop these up and take a peep at the inside after this quick commercial break. Guys we are back! Guys we are back! The holo soap has been unmolded. And before I cut this, I wanna show you guys what I did. I took the two loaves
outside into the sunshine because that is where the
holo is the most spectacular and I happened to get a shot of when the clouds were covering the sun and then the sun poked through them and the transformation of the glitter is just simply stunning. Also, please peep the nail polish because Christine nailed the linear holo. because Christine nailed the linear holo. It is so beautiful, especially on top of a black nail polish. I’m literally obsessed. So I’m gonna turn this soap on its side, that way the glitter doesn’t
drag against my cutter. I’m using Kermit today. And I’m just gonna press down and you can probably
already see the glitter in those first four layers. Man, he sounded angry about that. (laughs) I’m gonna slide one
out of the middle here, break that up a little bit and this is what it
looks like on the inside. So we’ve got kind of this
cool herringbone effect. I’m totally digging it. Does this remind anyone
of like an 80s party? My mom said this is like
all the 80s tracksuits. (laughs) So we’ve got the purple, the yellow, that pink, which kinda
went sort of a red color, that Tahitian teal, orange, a lighter pink and then the black or really dark gray. And then when you flip it, oh my gaw! And then when you flip it, oh my gaw! I’m gonna start far away, and then I’m gonna move
it up to the camera so you can see like the quick sparkle. Look at the sparkle! Ahh, the camera doesn’t even
know what to do with it. And here’s a close-up on the inside. You can see the glitter
on the inside of the soap the best in this purple, but like I said it’s in
all four of these layers. And then these are just regular colored. Okay so, the question of the day is, do you think we should
do more glitter tops? I was thinking in the future, we might do like a pastel goth, we might do like a pastel goth, where we do pastel colors with a black and do a glitter top. And maybe just do a pastel
soap with a glitter top. Like a unicorn cloud looking soap. Y’all will have to let me know. All you have to do to vote
in the question of the day, is click the “I” in the upper right hand
corner of the screen and I have to say, for having not completely
planned this out, I’m totally digging the colors. I’m totally digging the colors. I think they go perfect together. Again, you got that kinda
80s dance party going on, with the holo top. I’m pretty sure Christine would approve. Also a thanks to one of the
members of the royal court for sending me these gloves. He said they didn’t fit him and that his company kept
sending him the wrong size. They fit me perfectly and they grab onto my fingers and I’m so sick of gloves,
that are just flapping around. It makes in-bed placement
so much more difficult, so thank you so much
for sending them to me, I totally appreciate it. Dead! Dead! Dead! Dead! Dead! Dead! Okay also next, I should
totally do more diagonal, until it gets like all the way to the top and it can’t even fit anymore. That would be so much fun. I hope you guys enjoyed today’s video and this 80s glam-retro-holo looking, and this 80s glam-retro-holo looking, awesome, Christine soap that I made today. If you are, be sure to give
