I believe it’s time for another purple, ladies. Purplelicious has been lying patiently in my drawer, waiting for its turn in the limelight. I bought this when I got KOH Jewel, so yeah, it’s been quuuite a while.
At first sight, Purplelicious is an outright simple medium purple with a crème finish. No question about it. However, once on the nails with at least two coats, it starts to show its blue characteristics. Purplelicious is what I would interpret as electric indigo. Blue weighs heavily here.
I will spare you the details but suffice to say that the blue situation escalated in front of the camera. I was driven up the wall, figuratively and literally! So, there is no ambient photo setting this time around, I’m afraid. You see, it came down to either a blue nail polish called Purplelicious in an ambient setting, or a purple nail polish called Purplelicious against a dull white wall. Hmph!
Because of issues with the blue-ness on camera, the sequencing of my nail polish coats are off here. The two photos above with just the nail polish are actually with three coats of Purplelicious (I painted a thick third coat over my stamping). The images of my nails with stamping below are with two coats of Purplelicious. Even though it may seem like it, all these photos were not taken with flash photography.
Stamping was done with the Fauxnad image plate B33 from Chez Delaney and SpaRitual’s Hope Springs Eternal, and then topped off with KOH Top Coat Bamboo. Subtle, just the way I like it.
So, what do you think of this capricious delicious Purplelicious? Ah, sorry, I just couldn't resist the rhyming......
