We are finally at the end of the traditional rainbow. After this, it’s on to the pinks, whites, silvers…you get the idea. So, let’s get to it.
Sally Girl Simple is a pastel purple. I picked it up for ten cents! I use it for Easter accents, and things like that.
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Hunger Flames is more fuchsia than this picture shows. It does have a beautiful shine to it, and if you want nails that will make a statement, this polish will certainly do that.
I wonder what the deal is with all these dark shots? I must have thought it was okay at the time. Anyway…moving on…the next one is OPI Nicole Just Busta Mauve. This is a glitter polish that actually paints on pretty opaquely. With purple and blue glitter, it catches the light and is very versatile.
You might be thinking that this looks brown or red, but I can guarantee you (from the spot I have on my carpet) that it is purple, just a very deep purple. It is OPI I Sing in Color. If you want drama, this will bring it. You need two-three coats, but it is worth it.
This pale pastel is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure I Lilac You. It goes on surprisingly solid for such a pale color, and for any delicate look it is a beauty.
LA Colors Color Craze Nuclear Energy is a basic purple that leans toward being a neon purple. It is a bright shade, but not shocking, so it can be worn with all kinds of looks. You do need quite a few coats to get it opaque.
Sally Hansen Satin Glam Taffeta has just a hint of sparkle in it, but dries to a lovely satin finish. Two coats will get you completely covered with this one.
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Violet Voltage is one I like to use for water marbeling. It is honestly not one I have used for a full on manicure yet. I guess I haven’t had that perfect idea for it.
This is another one that works well for water marbeling. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pep-Plum is a bright shade of purple. I have a set of microbeads that match it really well too, so that is always a fun combo.
This one I struggled with, trying to decide if it was more in the pink or purple category. In the end I clearly chose purple. It is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pink Satin. It is a metallic purple that really catches the eye.
I love, love, love this polish. Sally Hansen Magentic Red-y Response. The way it swirls with the magnet, to bring out light and dark shades (almost black) is gorgeous. I usually lay down one coat, then on the second I use the magnet. I have never been disappointed with this polish.
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Deep Purple is just that, a deep purple. It has a teeny metallic sheen and goes on pretty well with just one coat.
Sally Hansen Triple Shine Grape Jelly is an ultra sheer purple jelly polish. I like it for watercolor looks and to add a touch of purple to other looks.
This pale purple is Essie She’s Picture Perfect. You can see a bit in the picture that it is a pastel purple, but the shine is bolder. This one does need a few coats to be solid, but other than that, it is fairly easy to work with.
Sally Girl XOXO is definitely in the neon category. I use this one a lot paired with black, or other neons. It adds spice to any look.
And those are my purple polishes! Thanks for reading!!!
