Top 5 Purple Nail Polishes

favourite purple nail polishes

Since dying my hair, I suppose it is only natural that I have become a little obsessed with the colour purple. I draw the line at full on purple outfits though, I don't want to be known locally as the 'giant human grape' or 'crazy purple lady' so thought I would just stick to painting my nails purple.

Purple has always been one of my favourite colours anyway and makes the perfect nail polish shade. I remember borrowing my mums nail polishes when I was little and purple was always one of the colours I would go to first! When I started thinking about my favourite purple nail polishes, there were a few shades in my collection that sprang to mind instantly.

top 5 purple nail polishes

Models own 'Roxy' - I'm not usually a huge fan of such dark colours, but this shade is beautiful and changed my mind straightaway. I always wear this when the nights start drawing in earlier, as it makes me feel all cosy. Not that we want to talk about that now Spring is here.

Barry M 'Prickly Pear' - One of my favourite shades for this time of year, super pretty and goes with absolutely anything too!

Nails inc. 'Park Lane' - My favourite purple sparkly polish. This is usually the shade that I wear when I go on holiday as it twinkles so beautifully in the light and you all know I am a magpie for sparkle!

Max Factor ' Fantasy Fire' - Do you all remember the hype around this polish?! Right back when I first started blogging, all I would read about was this nail polish. Curious, I obviously had to try it out. I have to admit it is so pretty, better over a base though as it does come out quite sheer.

Nails inc. 'Wardour Mews' - This is another one that is better over a base, the gold sparkles running though make it so pretty and gives it an almost two-tone effect.

I don't think I am going to be getting over the colour purple anytime soon. Would any of these polishes be in your top 5?



  1. Wow! I love every one of those nail polishes. I might just have to go out and get them for myself. Purple is my favourite colour too and I've always gone for purple nails too. I've tried using different colours but I always find myself back at purple.

    1. Thank you! Purple is just the most perfect shade isn't it!?

    2. It definitely is! I think I'll be investing in these ☺

  2. They're all so beautiful, but I especially love the colour of the Barry M polish! x

    1. Thank you for your comment lovely :)

  4. I have that Maxfactor nail polish and I love it so much! :D It lasts ages as well, but I find you need to apply multiple layers to get it to look good.

    1. Definitely, it is a polish that needs a good few layers! :)
