I am a purple addict!  Yes – commit me if you must… but it is true and if you have been following my blog at all – you already know this. lol  I have loved purple most of my life, though my mom said my favorite color when I was a little girl was brown – oi… brown.  She said I colored everything in color books brown so she assumed it was my favorite.  Nonetheless, I digress and moved on to bigger and better things. lol  In this weeks mani I wanted to rock out a super simple nail look that was both show stopping but wearable and I needed it to dry swiftly because I was impatient to wait for it set.  So read on for what I used to create my nails of the week.Paradise - Nails of the Week featuring Nubar, China Glaze & Maybelline Color Show

The two purple shades I chose are probably two of my favorites in my entire nail polish collection.  I picked up my first bottle of Paradise (by Nubar) before I even had my twins (over 4 years ago) and the bottle I’m holding in my photo is my third of this shade.  This Duo chrome is absolutely gorgeous and I found that topping it with Maybelline Color Show’s Diamond in the Rough made a great combination.  Of course, anyone that is close to me knows that China Glaze’s IDK is a Holy Grail for me.  I haven’t been seeing it in my local beauty supply stores and I’m a bit worried that it may be only available on Amazon – but I have back ups just in case… because it is my FAVORITE Purple EVER.

Base for nails – Nubar Paradise

Accent Nail – China Glaze IDK

Flakey Topper – Maybelline Color Show Diamond in the Rough

Base Coat – Julep Nail Therapy

I know I’m a purple addict – but purple and gold seriously has stolen my heart.  I can’t help it – I know I’ll be rocking out these nails all spring and summer as I do all year round. lol  What colors will be your favorites for the season?
