31 DAY CHALLENGE -- Day 6: Violet Nails


Hey everyone! Today is Day 6 of the challenge which means.. VIOLET NAILS! Now, I'm going to be honest and say that I really don't have any violet polishes.. since violet is technically a "blue-toned purple" so I went with a polish that would flash violet in a duochrome instead. Sneaky sneaky, I know. :)

This is Ulta's Celebutante (which is about as close to a violet polish as I have) topped with 1 coat of Sally Hansen's HD polish in Cyber. The tips of my nails are where you can see the violet duochrome showing through.

I have to say that this has been my favorite color combo so far.. I was actually really bummed to have to take it off. But now that I know about it, I can't wait to wear it again as soon as the challenge is over!

And as another added bonus, I also have Unicorn Puke over a purple today! Puke is what I'm affectionately calling a "blurple jelly." I didn't particularly want to use 4-5 coats to build up opacity, so I put it over Color Club's Pucci-licious.

Look at the beauty! :swoons:

  1. So pretty! I love the Puke over Pucci-licious. Pucci-licious is one of my favorite purples.

  2. Thanks, love! It *is* a really pretty purple. Looks great paired with OPI's Silver Shatter! :D

  3. I wasn't that excited (not a huge fan of purple or 'violet') UNTIL you added the Unicorn Puke... NICE! I like your suggestion for the shatter - I have a few polishes I don't love on their own but look great with shatter or crackle polishes!
