Toning Blond Wig with Gentian Violet

I own two Paula Young "Shannon" wigs in color 14/26A#8 Sunkissed Rooted (medium Ash blonde with medium golden blonde highlights, with medium golden brown roots)-- it's a little too WARM toned for my liking 😝 too orange!
So I tried to tone it with gentian violet.
First I tried 2  tablespoons gentian violet in a bucket of water and let my wig sit 10min. No real change...

 Second try I had 4 tablespoons gentian violet in the bucket of water and let the wig sit overnight... OK yes this made a HUGE difference! 😆 
Be warned it dyed the wigcap bright purple- this would be a problem if my wig didn't have bangs. 
I would never do this with a lacefront or mono top.

And warning: if my wig had been a more platinum I have no doubt it would turn out lilac.
Strawberry blond is my jam! 🍓
It looks very rose gold now, doesn't it?
More youthful and hipster 😎
