Good morning! Today I am wearing a fun purple french style mani! It's fun, it's purple and it's sparkly.
I'll start with Are Mermaids Real? by Spoiled - a line created by Wet n Wild. There is a huge range of colors, but the one that has always caught my eye is Are Mermaids Real? AMR? is a beautiful medium toned purple with heavy gold shimmer. It's a really beautiful combination and a unique polish, at least in my collection. I used 2 coats of AMR? to reach full coverage. My only qualm with this polish - not so much this polish in particular, but the entire Spoiled line, is that the brush is awful. It's HUGE! It is the widest brush I have ever used, it's literally wider than my pinkie nail. So you have to be careful to not paint your skin.
I wanted to bling it up (as usual) and decided to paint sparkle tips. I used China Glaze Full Spectrum from the new-ish Prismatics line. Full Spectrum is a purple shimmer with small green and silver glitter pieces. It's really beautiful and sparkly. And it goes really well with ARM?! I free handed the french tips, using 2 coats of FS. Then I topped it all off with a coat of out the door topcoat.
Good news about these polishes - you can get China Glaze Prismatics at beauty supply stores like Sally's and Ulta for around $7. Spoiled is at CVS for $1.99.
