Shades of Purple


Whenever I paint my nails, I always have the hardest time choosing just one color. So I decided not to compromise and used five colors, creating an ombre purple look. After painting my nails, I actually discovered a few more purple shades that I didn't even know I had, but I only have five fingers on each hand, so I think five colors was sufficient ;)

Polishes from left to right:
Maybelline Express Finish in 210 Pastel Purple, Essie Jamaica Me Crazy,
Essie Bahama Mama, Essie Velvet Voyeur, Maybelline Color Show in 430 Plush Plum.



I love all of these purple shades, but a few definitely stand out to me: Essie Velvet Voyeur, Essie Jamaica Me Crazy, and Maybelline Express Finish in Pastel Purple.

Do you have a favorite shade?

    1. I love purples and reds for nails---I feel like they are universally flattering. And while Essie never lasts long on my nails (I usually get chipping after a day or two), I love their color selection. If I could recommend any of these colors though, it would be the Maybelline Express Finish in Pastel Purple. The price is great, and it's still going strong on my nails!

  9. Buena idea usar más de un color, creo que queda mucho más vistoso siempre y cuando uses la misma gama!
