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.
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?
