Purple-icious






This is my attempt at an ombre mani using one of my favorite colors...PURPLE! The first pic is all the purples I have. I took a few pics of the mani  just to play around with the effects on my camera haha. From thumb to pinky  I used Essie's St.Lucia Lilac, Bangle Jangle, Play Date, Color Club's Pucci-licious, and Rescue Beauty Lounge's Purple Haze.

  6. Some of those camera settings have surprising effects--until I read your note on that I was wondering how many times you changed your mani. :)

    2. I'm sure they'll replace it no problem if my guy can't fix it himself. Seems like it's something just a little glue will take care of ^.^

  17. I think I have on a super light shade of greyish purple. I don't reach for this color often, but I think it looks great on you and would compliment my skintone too. I think some shades are just a bit extreme...
