You probably would have noticed that I have a certain fascination for purple nail polishes, especially the dark ones, and I wouldn’t be surprised if purple has got a grip on many of you too.
Deep purple on its own looks regal but then, deep purple juxtaposed against silver is like having the king, the queen and the handsome prince over for dinner!

Zoya Sloane is a magnificent deep purple, leaning slightly towards burgundy and with hints of shimmer. In the bottle, it's so striking that I've been having trouble tearing my eyes away from the polish. This is my first ever Zoya which I bought a few months ago. My friend, Gail of ooglemakeup, who also has this in her collection, had said a while back that I should feature this nail polish here, so here it is!
For stamping, I used the newly released Essence Nail Art Stampy Design Plate: 03 Be Creative. The design that I chose is the Chinese character in the top row. Translated, it means ‘friend’ and I think it’s very appropriate for this post. Gail was my first friend in blog world and my first ever reader (one never forgets such things!), so this is for Gail and for all the ladies I've met here ever since!
Sloane was quite a pleasure to polish but I did encounter the odd bubble or two. Shown here are two coats of Sloane. For the stamping, I used Silver Moon, a phased-out nail polish from Catrice.
And because deep purples are so difficult to capture on camera, I ended up having to take a gazillion photos in my attempt to outwit this chameleon Sloane. Here are just three more for your viewing pleasure, my friends.....
Umm, have I already mentioned how much I love deep purple nail polishes?
