Hello all I have a lovely autumnal purple for you all today:
So first I want to apologise for the jaggedness around my cuticles and that split in my index finger – this is no fault of the polish I can assure you, my nail was peeling at the time and I must have had a bad eyesight thing going on haha. Just one of those days. I confess this is a picture from a few weeks ago but I really wanted to show you this one
Purple Rain is one of those gorgeous deep purples that seems to change its shade according to the light – hopefully this is portrayed in the photos! If you’re thinking it looks a little like Rimmel Night Flight – Purple Rain’s base is much more red while that of Night Flight is more blue-black. This is definitely shown in the first coat of Purple Rain and shows a little around the edges.
Application was flawless, practically opaque in 1 coat but I added a 2nd for good measure. This would have looked a lot better if my application hadn’t been so sloppy :s sorry. It didn’t look as bad irl I promise Dried quickly too so that was good.
This is one of those colours that is just perfect for Autumn/Fall cause it’s so deep and lovely yet doesn’t quite have that Wintry edge.. though I’ll probably wear it in Winter, Spring and Summer too it actually reminds me a lot of China Glaze’s new Urban Night from the Metro Collection.
Oh and it’s BUAV Approved (Cruelty-Free) so for £5 you can hardly resist!
I’m now on the hunt for a dark purple jelly so if you know of one, shout!
Hope you are all doing well – I have a long weekend as we finished a module so that’s nice we didn’t get half term so I’m majorly lacking in sleep. Getting nervous about all the deadlines creeping up! Sorry it’s only a brief post today – but maybe you prefer the lack of waffling?
