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.

Nails: Monkey See, Monkey Do - Ombré Animal Print

I first saw this as a tutorial from CutePolish on YouTube, and thought I ought to give it a go as it has been a while since I freehanded some leopard print nails. I think it worked great other than the topcoat smudging on my ring finger, plus I much prefer purple to pink!

Nail Polish: Battle of the Purples

As I have so many purples I've broken this down to two parts

Barry M - Berry Ice Cream, Color Club - Pucciliscious, Ylim Mood - #15, China Glaze - Grape Pop, Barry M - Dusky Mauve, Miss Sporty - 330, Max Factor - Meteorite  ELF - Party Purple, ELF - Royal Purple, Barry M - Indigo

Cutting those down to three was not an easy task! A vibrant lilac, creamy, neon Pucci-Liscious. Dusky Mauve which is a really nice polish at first glance its a bit of a boring greige but it as this purple shimmer running through it. makes it special.

Barry M Indigo wins hands down, it's very vibrant and always perks me up while I am wearing it.

Second half of the purples...
Stargazer - Purple Chrome, Ciaté - Wait After Dark, Barry M - Blackberry, Stargazer - 161, No.7 - Violetta, OPI - Honk if you Love OPI, Rimmel - Hard Edged, Models Own - Purple Mystique, Rimmel - Night Before, ELF - Plum, Orly - Fowl Play, NYX - Purple Ink, ELF - Party Purple, ELF - Dark Purple Glitter, OPI - Nevermore

Got those purples down to four and added in the Indigo from before.

Final three are Barry M - Indigo, Orly - Fowl Play and NYX - Purple Ink

And finally the winner is, NYX! Very difficult to choose, ended up with this as Fowl Play is a flakie which stunning but I prefer something a little more versatile. The NYX can be worn alone or with nail art so that's why it got picked.
