This ink did not scan as it looks like in real life. This ink actually has a very purple tone to it.

Just ordered Nightshade, and I'm really hoping I like it. Your scans scared me at first, because they look sooo brown - though I liked it because it seemed like a purpley-brown. Glad to know the scans aren't entirely accurate :) Will add my 2 cents when I've had a chance to try it, too!

I really like this ink, but be warned that, at least in my opinion, this ink takes on different characteristics in different pens. In some of my wet writers it looks less purple and more like a red; still like it very much.

I agree, and in really fine nibs it can be so dark that it could easily be mistaken for black. Definitely an interesting ink, but it needs the right pen.

Where I ran some water over the "Water Test" it shows that there is purple in it. This color is really tough to catch with a scan. If you write with this ink next to a black ink there is a clear difference between the colors.

Agreed :) Just got my bottle of Nightshade on Tuesday and I'm loving the color. So far, I've only tried it with a broad nib, so the next step is to experiment with other nibs. In the broad nib, the color is clearly 'plummy' and gorgeous!

I'm expecting this ink to arrive some time today. I am a sucker for purple ink, especially of the deeper variety. Hope I like it!

 

Perhaps I'll post my own review?
