When I was in downtown Los Angeles recently, I picked up this incredibly cheap but gorgeous shade of purple. The polish is a lilac creme pastel shade and even though it was cheap, it applied smoothly and lasted for almost 5 days without chipping.
For this manicure I used my bargain, yet amazing, polish by Kleancolor in shade Pastel Purple and for the ring finger I dabbed on a Barry M lilac glitter polish in shade 239. Barry M is a UK brand and they do some really amazing glitters. My friend purchased this shade for me years ago and it’s still going as I have so many polishes that I rarely use them up. Barry M again sells reasonably priced polishes that seem to last pretty well. Unfortunately this glitter doesn’t have great coverage. To compensate I dabbed on the chunky glitter piece by piece. It was time consuming but I love the effect.
This manicure looked gorgeous for 5 days! It only started chipping on day 5. The glitter stayed on pretty well but was an absolute nightmare to remove. I love glitter polishes but hate removing them! I was thinking of buying the OPI base coat that lets you peel off glitter polish, has anyone tried it yet?
So there it is, another purple manicure. I need to try more colors as I tend to get stuck in a rut with my choice of polish shades.
This week I have an extra day off, which I’m thrilled about. I hope you are enjoying the blog and would love to hear from you if you are reading it.
