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.
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
Top Coat – Ciate London Speed Coat Pro Fast Dry top coat
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?
