Subtle Purple Swirls

This came out a bit more subtle than I intended…but oddly looks a lot like the vests we are thinking of putting the groomsmen in for our wedding! Which we picked out today. So maybe that was my inadvertent inspiration?


The new polish here is a purple matte called Iris by Zoya. Since I can’t use my old Mentality mattes without my fingernails threatening to fall off, I wanted to try and replace some of my favorites with Zoyas! I while back I bought a STUNNING dark green (Verschuka) but that line of early mattes has been discontinued. Iris is from the newer mattes…and is more of a semi-matte than a true matte.


That being said, I love the color of Iris…especially with top coat! There are beautiful flecks of pink and blue shimmer hidden in Iris, but de-matting the polish defeats the purpose! Ah well, still pretty. Iris covered nicely in two coats, and is pretty matte and beautiful glossy!


~ Purple matte: Zoya – Iris
~ Purple holo: Gothic Gala Lacquers – Vallis Sanguine
~ Stamp: EdM – 22


So, this post is a mix of matte and top coated just so you guys can see how it looked both ways! And because the holo stands out better before top coat. Oops!


Hope you enjoyed! Tomorrow’s manis TERRIBLE so be prepared :-p
