Yes it is klein blue and apple green. The purple is old reliable vibrance and the black is their oxide.

That looks awesome! :D And I hear you on soaps not wanting to gel. I struggle with that myself...I can use known accelerators/heaters, soap on a warm day, and/or place it on a heating pad... and no gel. I think I've only had two soaps actually gel on me, and most of the time I'm trying to encourage it.

I think the only time I have had gel phase is the first batch that I ever did. I was in my kitchen, which is much warmer than my basement, and I used a Pringles can. It was a palm free vegan recipe, no scent and no color. When I cut it there was the obvious partial gel ring in the middle.

So I guess I just need to accept gelling is not in my cards with out CPOP... and I am really not interested in lugging batches up and down my basement stairs. Haha.

One of my most recent gelled soaps was also in a Pringles can! lol And I don't have a basement, or a house with AC, so unless it's winter it's pretty cold here. I got gel both times I used a tissue box as a mold... but now that mold has vanished. :( Heck, I add things that most people worry about (like liquids with sugar) all the time without gelling.
