Yes, it’s purple yet again! However, to spice things up, I decided to do a colour inversion for two of my nails.
I’ve had KOH Purple Rain for quite a few months now. In the bottle, you can tell that it’s one shade lighter than KOH Purple Darkness. On the nails, it’s more difficult to tell the difference though.
For some reason, Purple Rain was easier to paint than with Purple Darkness. What you see in the images is with two coats. One may be enough, actually, if you can paint it evenly. With one coat, the purple is obvious. With two, it looks almost black.
The stamped design is from the Essence Nail Art Stampy Set: 01 Be Creative!, which is still the only stamping set that I own. For the stamping on the Purple Rain nails, I had to use an old, thick white nail polish that I have. It’s from the Bourjois French Manicure Kit.

For the colour inversion, I used KOH’s sister brand, Herôme W.I.C. (World Inspired Colours). I bought Freetown last weekend and it is a pearly beige shade. Phew, this was a five-coater! I do like how it looks though. I used Purple Rain for the stamping and I’m pleased that the colour showed up well on the nails (although, I know, I know, my stamping skills could still be improved!).
Here are the products used:
By the way, I promise it won't be another purple nail polish the next time!
