Adorned Nails: Skin Food Nail Vita VI407 Puppy Purple



Don't you just love the name? I think it's cute, however inaccurate it is. It's terribly inaccurate, actually. Firstly, I couldn't find the puppy, and secondly, where in the world is the purple?! Perhaps I had chosen a bottle with a wrong label (but I doubt it). Mine says VI407. I checked the Skin Food website and it shows that VI407 has the name Puppy Purple.

In real life, it looks burgundy. A beeeautiful burgundy, so dense with microglitters you'd wonder how they managed to squeeze them all in. Just like the previous Skin Food nail polish I showed a few months ago, VI408 Violet Stone, the formula for Puppy Purple was thick, but I managed to apply the polish without resorting to using a thinner. This polish has an awful smell too, just like the other one. I had to keep my nose far away from the brush. However, I do find this one relatively hardier than Violet Stone. It's the end of Day 1 and I see no signs of chipping yet, not that this says anything that significant.

Burgundy and microglitters make a perfect combination.......for me, at least. My heart feels so warm and fuzzy when I look at this polish. And look at it a lot I do.

I quite enjoyed the pictures in this post, lovin' the angles you took! And that colour looks SO pretty. I swear I've seen a lot of polishes, but you cease to amaze me by showing more prettiful colours that are unique and distinct on their own.

I so agree with you on the name. I feel like getting a pup & naming it purple now. The color is a stunner. Rich burgundy with glitter looks oh so amazing :)

Thanks so much, alvira. Does it look more purple to you? I'm finding it so hard to see the purple. A burgundy-purple it must be then! [picks up phone to make appointment with optician] ;D

It's the kinda color that makes me wanna sit on the couch under a blanket with a nice warm cup of hot chocolate, if that makes sense :P Warm and fuzzy indeed!
