Purple Polish Spam

Tuesday, January 22, 2013
I was in a mood to swatch yesterday, so swatch I did. Some of these were untrieds while others were polishes I just had not worn in a while.

Color Club Mystery. Blurple polish, crammed full of magenta sparks. Very pretty and vibrant. Three coats.

 Essence Oh My Glitter! Three coats. Perfect light purple with chunky pink shimmer. Three coats. Rumor has it that this polish is being discontinued!

 China Glaze Flying Dragon. Three coats. For some reason, this popular neon really did not get along with my base coat of Barielle Nail Rebuilding Protein. It... moved like crackle, in chunks. Weird right? Shown with two coats of topcoat.

American Apparel L'Esprit. Two coats, but you could get away with just one. Great creme formula, so rich and opaque yet streak free.

Spoiled Are Mermaids Real? Three coats. Squishy purple with gold flecks. So pretty.

Technically not a purple but one side of this duo is tinted purple. Essence Colour3 Duo in Midnight Date. Two coats of the dark blue Midnight Date side. Rich, slightly color shifting blue/indigo.

Same color as above, only topped off with the purple tinted City That Never Sleeps side. Sheer (very) purple with green flakes and shimmer.

 One of the old Essence polishes. Where's The Party? Two coats. Wonderful duochrome, such a rich formula that doesn't look streaky or sheer.

 Wet'n'Wild On A Trip. Great color and formula, three coats. Raggedy ass brush that greatly hinders application though.

 LA Girl Rockstar Groupie. Wonderful, wonderful purple. I can't even describe how beautiful this is. Bright purple jam packed with flecks (similar to OPI Ink, but way more intense) that shift from blue to purple to even magenta. Absolutely stunning, three coats.

 LA Girl Disco Brites in Hustle. Three coats, very pretty purple that leans blue.

 Love & Beauty polish simple called Purple. Leans magenta. Three coats.

Wet'n'Wild Back Alley Deals. One coat over the previous shade of Love & Beauty Purple. One of my favorite glitters.

Hope you enjoyed the purple spam! (I know my friend Sunny certainly will, seeing how much she loves purple polish!). If you have suggestions as to what colors, brands or finishes you'd like to see next, please don't hesitate to let me know in the comments.
