I can't get enough purple at the moment. Don't know why. It's always been one of my favourite colours, not just in nails, but I've really had a thirst for purple nails over the last few weeks. This is also another Accessorize polish, Purple Dream. I applied three coats, mattefied it, then shiniefied the tips (made up words FTW). It applied well, was less sheer than the other Accessorize polishes with the same formula but was a little bit draggy so you need to load your brush up well.
Close up to see pretty violet and blue micro glitters
I was happy with this manicure, and even slapped some glitter over to keep it going an extra day (post on that to come...). Until I took it off and found it had turned my nails GREEN! Green? From purple polish? Worst staining I've ever had too. I was considering naked nails for a few days because of the terrible peeling I'm getting (you can see some of it on the pic below, and that's not even the worst of it) so I think it was lifes way of telling me I can't go unpolished.
What's the worst staining you've ever had? How do you solve it? And as for peeling, any remedies? I'm trying to moisturise as much as I can, and I'm using nail envy as my basecoat. I can't get any acetone free polish remover anywhere near me atm, but when I next go into town I'll try and get some. I've also chopped a few of my nails and I'm going to keep them shorter until the splits grow out. I know you should file a split out, but I can't if they're lower than the nail bed. LeSigh.
