Top Four Purple Winter Nail Polishes

Sunday, December 18, 2016 Alexa W 2 Comments

I recently painted my nails with Essie Sexy Divide (pictured below) and I realised how much I love dark, purple shades. If you would like a colour series of all my favourites..and trust me there will be a lot..let me know.

Here are my four favourite this season, and they're all affordable!

This is the shade on my nails. It applies in quite an opaque coating, so after three my nails were completely done. This also dries quickly, but don't apply too thick a layer otherwise it could smudge before the top coat. I love the brand's names and how unique each shade is, so this is definitely one to check out if you want a fun seasonal shade.

Here are all four, each one has shimmer in it as I shy away from the more bland, block colours. I like something different and to make a bit of a statement so the more glitter and holographic the better!

LA Colors has an affordable, versatile range which are good for quick applications. L'oreal's is a gorgeous holographic mix of gold, green and purple so it's beautiful in different lighting. This also applies in a thick layer so is easy to use. Orly has a really good shade selection and these bottles last forever! This one is more of a glittery shade and would be perfect for evenings out.

Have you tried these?
