Previously I looked at the nude and brown polishes, pink, red, orange and yellow polishes, green polishes, glitter polishes from 2021.
Today I am looking at purple polishes, I have added 22 new purple's to my collection which is the largest category in this 'battle'.
Essie - Saltwater Happy // Barry M - Lilac Orchid // Barry M - Palma Violet // Emily de Molly - Rock Solid // Prism Polish - Cortinarius // Orly - Synthetic Symphony // Painted Polish - Right As Rainbows // Quixotic Polish - Morning Glory // Girly Bits - Where My Demons Hide // Aj Nails - Purpleous // Barry M - Plum Jam
Prism Polish - Snuggly Snood // DRK - Raspberry in Blue // A England - To The Lighthouse // UberChic - Creep It Real // Picture Polish - Bold // Danglefoot - Tears in Rain // Barry M - Indigo // Danglefoot - Cyclops // Rogue Polish - Spiced Plums // Tonic - Dragonfly Parade // A England - Virginia Woolf
As there were so many purple polishes choosing my top three was very difficult;
Right As Rainbows was a surprisingly good polish, it was part of July 2021 rewind Polish Pick Up. It is a cornflower crelly base with iridescent multichrome flakes. I usually prefer darker polishes but this one is quite special and the flakes make it glowy, it has a flat and wide brush and takes two coats for full opacity.
Next is Virginia Woolf which is much more a 'me' shade, it is part of the Moments With Virginia collection. The holographic polish was a one coater and the brush is a paddle shape. Virginia Woolf is a deep garnet shade, more of a berry colour than a straight up red or pink.
And so the winner of this battle is Danglefoot Cyclops, it was so hard to choose between this and the A England. Cyclops was part of the X-Men Hero collection, and the brush is flat and wide. It is a jelly indigo base with copper flakes within it. It is shown below with two coats but I prefer to wear it layered over an indigo polish such as Barry M Indigo as I don't like jelly polishes on myself.
