Benten is the Japanese goddess of love, beauty, eloquence, wisdom, arts and music, knowledge, good fortune, and water. She is also called Benzai-ten. Her backstory is that she was married to a wicked dragon and reformed him.
Her lacquer is named Benten and the Dragon. It is a vivid hot pink shimmerella with pink holographic microglitter accents. As you can see from swatches, it can be built to opacity in two or three coats or used for layering. The pink you see comes from shimmer—no dyes or pigments were added.
