I think it's fair to say I'm a bit obsessed with nail varnish... purple nail varnish in particular.
I'd say I have almost every shade of purple polish possible, and every time I spot a different brand, I just have to have it! It's definitely my trademark nail colour.
L-R Aldo: La Vie Violette, Nina Ultra Pro: Purple Xing, Butter London: Marrow, Nails Inc: Leicester Square, Nina Ultra Pro: Purple Pizzazz
I swatched the colours of polish from left to right in the top picture on my nails starting little finger, working to thumb. (I didn't quite realise it wouldn't be as easy to look at on the photo when I was painting my nails! oops!)
I used two coats of each polish.
L-R Barry M: Vivid Purple, Rimmel: Pompous, Nails Inc: St Johns Wood, Primark: no name, Mac: Violet Fire.
I reviewed the Mac polish before. I love it, but for the price, and the brand, I would definitely expect better quality. It's pretty much the same consistency as the polish I bought from Primark (which came in a pack of four for £2.50)
This time I used two coats of polish on the first three nails, and four coats of the Primark and Mac polishes.
The Nails Inc polish which I used on my middle nail here, is the polish I used in my Leopard Print nails post.
L-R Illamasqua: Jo Mina, Nails Inc: In Style Candy, Miners: Laguna Love, Nails Inc: England's Lane, OPI: Do You Lilac It
This is again two coats of each polish, except for three coats of the Miners polish.
As I mentioned in a previous post OPI 'Do You Lilac It, is one of my favourite polishes in my collection, along with Illamasqua's Jo Mina.
All of these polishes in this last picture are fab for Summer nails!
Any purple polishes I don't have, but should have?!
