Twirls of Purple

This was actually one of the first designs that I did! Way back when I put together a similar design with white-grey-blue that looked stunning. So, I decided to try it with purple instead!


I actually tested two light purple/dark purple combos before picking this one. The bridesmaids dresses (and thus bouquets) were a raspberry-toned purple, rather than a violet, so I wanted something with a bit of pink in it.


Although I really liked this mani, unfortunately, my dress was an off-white cream color, rather than an off-white grey color…so the base of these nails (which is actually a very pale grey holo) would NOT have matched. As it tuns out, I don’t have a light nude/cream colored holo polish! And I really haven’t seen any that I like. Whoops!


~ Grey holo: Emily de Molly – Crystal Crown
~ Light purple: Zoya – Malia
~ Dark purple: Zoya – Monica
~ Stamps: BM – 314, 607


So, this was rejected as my wedding mani, despite being the one that my sister liked best. They only go down in classiness from today!
