I love purple! For some reason it’s one of those colors that I have very few of, especially cremes. This one is Sinful Colors’ Amethyst and applies like a dream. Could’ve worked with a single coat but I painted two to get some depth.
Both pictures without a top coat.
In the beginning of my nail polish obsession I made a large order from E.L.F for about half of their nail polish line. Medium Red was one of them. It sure is a pretty red with a good formula, but nothing with it is unique or special. If you own another red in the same range there’s just no need to own it.
Many of my favorite polishes are “almost black”; I especially love the red ones. Nailpolish that looks almost black but has a slight tint of another color is just sooo interesting.
OPI’s Midnight in Moscow was my first almost black and first self bought OPI. I’ve loved it for a long time but actually found two replacements that are better according to me, mostly because the red in them is more prominent. I guess that depends on how black you want your almost black to be 😉
When my father returned from his vacation to Turkey he brought an unusual gift for me – 12 polishes from the brand Flormar! I used the minty424 as a base for this manicure. I was pleasantly suprised by the formula and drying time. To make it a bit more interesting I topped 424 with Nubar’s Black Polka Dot. My friend thought it looks like bird eggs, and I agree 🙂
There are numerous reviews on A-England and their formula. Some think it’s horrible and hard to work with but I agree with the rest; A-Englands formula is one of the best ones out there. Add to that gorgeous colors, a decent price range and fast shipping and it’s no suprise it’s one of my favorite brands. Especially because of the formula.
This is A-Englands Saint George, two coats. Fabulous color and perfect coverage. It should be a crime to create colors THIS beautiful!
