I need to check that forum out at some point! Blue Pearl is pretty special if you like deep, rich blues. I like Rouge Haematite, but I got the bottleS with no glitter! So I am very annoyed. 

 

Ouch. The glitter is the whole point of these inks! Perhaps you could send the bottles back for a refund (or maybe it's been too long).

Someone else, jbb, over at fpgeeks posted that she add mica powder to ink after seeing a bunch of these inks. So far, so good. Maybe you could add some mica and use the ink in a Preppy. This is what I'm considering doing with a couple of my inks (e.g., Noodler's Manhattan Blue and Old Manhattan Black).

There's a whole topic about doing just that over in the inky recipes forum.  It's fascinating, and i'm just starting experimenting now.  It's fun!  My P51 didn't love it, but I have a Pelikan Silvexa that is weathering the glitter storm very nicely so far.  :)

I really appreciate the possible fix - you are right it has been too long, I ordered it due to the hype and I was a newbie in the inky depths.

I definitely am feeling this ink, and I love it more so without the shimmer! Would anyone be able to help me match the closest Diamine ink to the colour of Blue Lightning sans shimmer - I was thinking maybe Turquoise or Aqua Blue?

Hello, do try Diamine's Havasu Turquoise, it is very vibrant. Also there is a swatch a few posts back on THIS thread of a couple of comparisons. Perhaps that may help?
