Purple Tips

Purple nail polishes

L-R: Do You Lilac It?, Lilacism, Lilac Sheen

Summer might be not officially here yet but I can already tell you that my nail color of choice is gonna be purple. I’ve caught myself sporting the lilac shades quite a bit recently and pairing them with a simple white blouse has been my winning combo. Loving the effortless chic vibe! Here’s a list of the top three shades that have been gracing my tips recently and which make me rather excited for my upcoming summer holls…

Being someone with cool skin tone, finding the perfect purple nail polish could be quite tricky, so I always opt for the cooler, grey-based shades. My favorite pick comes in the form of Essie Lilacism (here / swatches), which bloomin’ rocks. Its light dusty lilac shade is literally to die for and I love how flattering it is. It brightens and enhances my tan and it turns me into a stylish bombshell on the spot. Lilacism is quite a feminine shade and the super glossy finish makes things even more beautiful. The big rounded brush coats the nail in one go and even though the formula is slightly more watery for my taste it does work and you get to streaks or unevenness. Brilliant.

I’ve recently added this Models Own Hyper Gel in Lilac Sheen (here) to my stash and even though it’s rather similar to the stunning periwinkle shade of Lilacsm I do think I need them both in my life. Lilac Sheen is less dusty in real life (the photo doesn’t do it justice unfortunately) and the subtle, yet still eye-catching color is super elegant and judging by the amount of compliments I get when I wear it it’s a total people pleaser. You can easily get away with just one coat of the polish and the thicker gel-like formula applies like a dream. If you decide to go for two coats though, just make sure the first one is fully dry before going over for the second time, as the lacquer tends to form bubbles. Slightly annoying, but oh well… Once it sets though it stays put until you say so and I can easily rock it for a whole week with no chipping. Definitely check it out ladies!

I rediscovered my love for OPI Do You Lilac It? (here / swatches) recently and it’s pretty much all I really wanna wear on my toes at the moment. It’s another cool toned shade and its medium-toned lavender is giving me the summery feels without failing. It does look stunning on the nails as well and I find it perfect for days when I fancy wearing something a bit different and unique. The polish does requite two coats but it still applies with no faff and I get some good four days of wear, which for an OPI is quite alright. I cannot stop looking t it though, so you bet that it will be reapplied numerous times over the summer.

Have you tried any of these beauties before? Which is your go-to purple nail polish?

Lots of love,
Andrea

  5. Loveee Lilac! That Essie one is gorgeous! I've been on the hunt for another pastel purple/lilac and this one is definitely up my ally. The one I had been loving is I Lavendare You by Flower which is pretty similar, but I usually gravitate towards darker/royal purples like OPI Coconut Kiss!

  11. Do You Lilac It? is such a gorgeous color! I'm such a sucker for purples. My go-to purple is OPI Planks A Lot, it's a more medium purple but pretty nonetheless.

  13. I'd highly recommend Essie's Play Date! It's a little bit brighter than the shades you picked but a similar tone. :)

  15. I think I need to give lilac polish a go, I've been opting for baby blue lately but these shades look stunning! I'm a big fan of Essie so I think Lilacism will be added to my stash in the near future.

    I love your style of writing, it's so relatable but informative :)
