Nail Polish Battle 2016: Purple Polishes

Over the past year the purple polishes seem to have been the colour which I have gotten the most of.

Essie - Virgin Snow // Barry M - Vintage Violet // Barry M - Berry Cosmo // Leighton Denny - Raspberry Affair // Nails Inc - Clarence Avenue // Champneys - Plum // Champneys - Mulberry // Sally Hansen - Plum Luck // W7 - Chocolate Pudding // Barry M - Nightshade // NYC - West Village

Breaking down this category was difficult, I ended up with Nails Inc, Sally Hansen and a Barry M. All are darker purple colours.

Clarence Avenue won however because Nails Inc have the best brushes in my opinion. Flat and wide with a curved cuticle which means little to no clean up with is great. This polish is clearly purple where as the other two are very dark, especially the Barry M one, it almost looks black.

Nail Polish: Battle of the Pinks

For someone who isn't a fan of pink I sure seem to have a lot of them!

ELF - Gum Pink, ELF - Fluorescent Pink, ELF - Hot Pink,  Barry M - Buzz, ELF - Punk Purple, Kleancolor - Metallic Pink, ELF -  Mod Mauve, ELF - Fuschia, ELF - Purple Pleaser, Kleancolor - Metallic Fuschia, Max Factor - Plum, ELF - Rosy Raisin, Sally Hansen - Royal Romance

First round was easy, whittling down to three polishes. Hot pink is vibrant and out there, Mod Mauve is understated and bland but works as a good base polish.

And the winner is... Max Factor's Plum. While the other two are great base polishes, Plum you can wear alone. Gorgeous cream polish.

Nail: Matte Plum

Still not sure about this matte look. As you can see it looks a little bit streaky and that is down to the top coat.
