Purple is just about my favorite color, along with green. I have been seeing a lot of it lately. So, I thought I would show you a few polishes that would look amazing this summer, really making your manicures (or pedicures) pop!
First is a gorgeous holographic polish from Layla Ultra Violet. They have a whole line of holographic polishes, I paid $15.50 at Ulta for this one. This polish looks light lavender with pink and silver shimmer in the light. Next is one from Pixi, available at Target or www.target.com for $8.00. This is color No.26, a bright purple shimmer with silver shimmer throughout. Also available from Target is the Cos Bar polish in Purple, $3.00, that they had for their special “Shops” collection. The only thing I didn’t like about this one is that it took about three coats to get a good opaque look.
China Glaze Caribbean Temptation is a fuschia with a blue shimmer throughout. Also similar to this one is Essie’s Jamaica Me Crazy, but it has more of a fuschia tone and is darker. One of my favorite brand’s is Illamasqua. I love their Hemlock, which I received when I purchased a Freak set (their fragrance). Hemlock is a light cream with a lavender shimmer.
Next is Zoya Danni, a medium purple shimmer with gold shimmer throughout. Then are two of my favorite purple polishes. Orly Oui, a mix of purple and gold shimmer. Also, Zoya Faye, another purple and gold shimmer. Both of these look gorgeous as pedicures.
Nubar also has a pretty polish that looks similar the the China Glaze one, it is called Sphinx Purple. However it has more shimmer to it. Zoya Juno is a very shimmery lilac and Zoya Mimi is a lavender with copper flake shimmer.
Zoya Carly is a medium purple with silver shimmer throughout and is a beautiful color. Zoya Hope is one of those purples that you look at and it just strikes you as gorgeous. It is purple with just a hint of shine to it. I love it. Nubar Precarious Lavender is also one of those pretty colors, it is a silvery shimmery lavender color.
My final two colors that I would like to include are Zoya Harmonie, another seriously gorgeous shade of shimmery lilac. And Nubar Nile Purple, which is a darker shade of purple with just a slight hint of shimmer. The Zoya Harmonie is one of my favorites.
Zoya polishes can be found at www.zoya.com and run $8.00 each. Nubar polishes are available at www.bynubar.com and are also $8.00 each. Orly is usually at Sally Beauty Supply stores and Ulta stores and www.ulta.com, it also runs $8.00 each. Essie is at most major drugstores now and runs $8.00 each. The Illamasqua nail polish can be found at www.sephora.com for $14.00 or www.illamasqua.com (in UK Pounds or US Dollars). I didn’t include any OPI polishes because I don’t have any purple shades, but I do like OPI polish, it is one of the best polishes on the market. Yes, I went overboard on the purple polish, but it is my favorite color…
