Nail Polish Battle 2021: Purple


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


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.

Nail Art: Indigo Cyclops

Cyclops is a indigo jelly base with copper flakies, I don't like visible nail line on myself and so layered in on Barry M Indigo which matched Cyclops well.

Nails: Top 5 Autumn / Fall Polishes 2014

I did a post like this one last year, you can see it here if you are interested. Now that it is officially Autumn I thought I would share my top five polishes for this season.

First I have Barry M's Matte Crush, which is a deep burgundy matte shade which also looks great with a shiny topcoat over the top.

Then Leighton Denny's Be Unique which is a browny / rusty shimmer colour, you do need three coats to achieve opacity but it would also work layered over a red or an orange base.

ELF's Fire Coral, is a mid-orange cream polish which is perfect for Halloween nails and of course orange is a prominent colour in nature throughout autumn.

The deep purple is Barry M's Indigo, and is the perfect Cadbury purple. Very difficult to colour accurately photograph. The bottle shot and the photo of the skittle nails above aren't accurate, the photo below is much more true to life. It is a deep colour but not one which looks black and is easier to wear. I need to get a new bottle of this as I seem to be at the very end of this bottle.

Lastly I chose Miss Sporty's Rain Drop which is a dark green, something a little different from a pure black polish. Lovely and creamy and deep and the brush is quite flat and wide.

33 Day Challenge: Using Most Owned Colour

Looking through my polish collection it was clear that the colour I have the most of is purple, I counted them and I have 40 bottles of various purple cremé. So that number doesn't include glitters, holographics and magnetics.
