Creative musings in bright colors

Purple Diamondante

The design can be summarized as “Eva has fun with purples and striping tape”. It also totally works for the Day 12 – Stripes prompt! Win-win.

This mani cane about because I found a purple L’oreal polish on sale at Rite Aid, and I spent fully 5 minutes trying to figure out from memory if it would be perfectly between the two purple I currently own. I ended up buying it, and I am really glad I did! That also meant that I needed to use it with a bunch of other purple polishes I own, just to make sure the color fits.

This is Paparazzi Pleaser by L’oreal. The polish is much more jelly-like than creme-like. It took three thin coats, which was fine, but was incredibly sheer on the first coat. I am actually quite happy with that, as I’ve been looking for some jelly polishes to use for lead lighting and I think this one might work! Interestingly, this purple (its a blue-toned purple rather than a pink-toned one) dries a full shade darker than it looks in the bottle. Go figure!
