Purpurfärgen Is A Lovely Word

Purpurfärgen is Swedish for the colour purple, (thank you alizarine claws for your Swedish word of the day, it's brilliant). Purpurfärgen is also a good way to express my current thing for purple, eg, this week I have been in a state of purpurfärgen as I can't stop wearing purple on my nails.

ELF Lilac Swatch
ELF Lilac Swatch. This would count as a purple, yeah?

ELF Lilac, as the name would strongly suggest, is lilac with a bit of a grey tinge to it. Goes on nicely, and covers well in three coats, with maybe a bit of streakiness, which is why I applied four coats.

ELF Lilac and GCOCL G14
Stamping polish is definitely purple

Some floral Konading as I'm trying things out for a special occassion where I have to wear a dress :O Used the GCOCL G14 / K02 plate and 2True Shade 13 (purple) as the stamping polish, which did the job quite nicely :)

ELF Lilac, Barry M 239 Lavender Hexograms and GCOCL G14
Blue Steel glitter pose.

By the time Friday evening came around the nails were ready for a spot of bling. Barry M 239 Lavender Hexograms polish was the perfect companion, with its chunks of lavender square glitter and fabby silver shimmer.

I must like this nail job as it's been on for nearly three days now.
