Adorned Nails: Sportsgirl Purple Rain

After getting overly dazzled by KOH Metallic Red last week, I felt I should rekindle my love for one of my two favourite nail colours this time. Perhaps that's guilt talking.

My lovely friend, The Diva's Polish, sent me this all the way from Australia. Thank you, my dear! Actually, she sent me much more than just this polish, so there will be more features to come.

This is my first brush with a Sportsgirl product and I'm loving it! Purple Rain, a deep purple/violet polish with very fine shimmers, applied really well. Opacity is possible with one coat, but I did two anyway. I believe it's 3-free and I must say it's a pretty hardy polish. I've had it on for a couple of days and it's still looking good. Err, no top coat, as usual!

Carine said...

wow, this polish looks really good on long nails ! My problem with dark polishes is that it stains my nails. Do you use any base coat ?

I'm pleased you like this, Yinka. :)

@nail crazy
Haha, I think if we like purple, then any purple polish would make us go weak at the knees. :D

Yay to purples! :)

Oh, Jeanie, you have such a fabulous collection of nail polishes, so I'm sure a shade like this would be somewhere in your stash. :)

Thank you! :)

@Sarah B.
I love the bottle design too. It is indeed unique. :)

Thanks for your enthousiastest comment ever. ;D Seriously, I think it's a fabulous purple polish and I'm glad you agree. :)

Hi, alvira! Ooh, you're a purple fan! Yay! What is it about purple nails that captivate us all, huh? I'm fascinated. :)

Hang in there, my dear. More to come soon! :)

Thank you, KTee! I'm pleased you love purple nails too. Really, they would look flattering on everyone. :)

I'm glad! I love the cool, simple bottle design too. :)

.....and I've got The Diva's Polish to thank for this. Obrigada! :)

So far, I haven't faced any staining problems with my dark polishes. Yes, I always use a base coat. I have a few from different brands, eg: Essence, SpaRitual, which I use alternately. :)

Heh heh! Me too. :D

@Mademoiselle C.
Hi! Yes, you're quite right. Well, sometimes, it looks more blue on the nails than in the bottle. :)

I'm pleased! I think you should show this to your sister. :D

@Mz. More
I totally agree. The bottle looks so sleek, doesn't it? :)

Liesewiesje said...

Even though purple isn't usually my colour, I like this nailpolish :) Thanks for the swatches! :)

Vonvon said...

That is a gorgeous shade of purple, so rich and pigmented.

Witoxicity said...

My pleasure! So, does that mean you've been converted to the purple camp? ;)

I'm so glad that this is to your liking, Vonvon! :)

Witoxicity said...

I'm pleased you like this! :)

Hi, MadammeM! Thanks for your kind words. As for the nails, I don't really do anything special and I have my bad nail days too! I do, however, rub in cuticle oil/cream on the nails and cuticles on alternate days. I think that helps. :)
