Day 6 of the 31 Day Challenge (#31DC2013) was Violet Nails.
I really love the look of Bourjois Bleu Violet (the base that I used for these nails), but it was a pain to photograph. It either looked black or totally blue in photos, when in person it's actually a really lovely blurple (quite a bit more purple than blue though.) I used two coats for these nails, and it has a nice squishy finish.
I waited a while for the base to dry, and I applied some striping tape diagonally on my nails to create diamond shapes. I sponged Enchanted Polish Purple Roses on the tips, then quickly removed the tape. I love the holographic shimmer that Purple Roses adds to the effect.
My accent nail is two coats of OPI Alcatraz...Rocks, one of the most amazing Liquid Sand polishes OPI has created, in my opinion. It's the strangest mix of blue, grey, and purple, and it has some gorgeous multicolored shimmer; I think it's mostly gold, pink, and purple, maybe some green too! It's just stunning.
Thank you for reading!
