opi, Purple

OPI Every Month is Oktoberfest

I am a huge fan of OPI. I love the brushes, the handles, the bottles, the names, the ease of application, the quality – I could go on!

I bought this nail polish from lookfantastic.com thinking it was a vivid purple so when it arrived looking decidedly red, I was a bit disappointed.  Just goes to show than on-screen colours are not always true colour.

I could have returned it but I decided to keep it and I’m so glad I did!

I cannot do the colour justice in the photos so I’ll try my best to describe it.  If you do a thin smudge, it looks blueberry purple (like the smudge on my finger) so you know there’s some blue in there. On a proper coat it looks more red purple, or just burgundy. In most lights, it looks like a deep cherry brown but every now and then it looks a little more purple.It has a great depth of colour and a great shine which I guess is all down to the tiny reflective parts which seem to sit under the colour.

I love the multiple personalities of this polish and I’m glad I kept it!
