Today's theme for the GOT challege is purple. Um, all over it! The difficulty was choosing a purple. Well, not really. I have a lot of golden oldie purples, but this one has my heart and has only graced my tips a couple of times and not at all within the last year. So sad!
Contrary Polish Desert Fruit - 2 coats
Contrary Polish was my first indie crush and continues to be one of my favorite indies. I have gushed about The uniqueness of Carrie's polish and her great formulas! They consistently showed up in my Best of 2013 categories again and again! I did a little research and I think this came out in September of 2012. This was a "stand alone" not connected to any collection. A gorgeous dusty eggplant color filled with a red/copper shimmer, this is my kind of purple. I have a weakness for anything with copper, all of its' veriations....red, pink, antiqued and patina. Give me copper and I am a happy girl. This can still be found at Llarowe , Norway Nails or contact directly HERE for mini bottles. You can also follow on Facebook. Now that I got that out of my system, let's move on to the "nail art".
Imagine that nail art has air quotes around it. I don't really consider it art since it takes no skill other than picking a pretty coordinating polish and stamp image. I stamped randomly with Revlon Captivate and BM07. I am revisiting stamp images that are "golden oldies" too. I may even be recreating some of my early manis at some point for this challenge. We will see! Here is some pic spam!
I really love this combo as Captivate coordinates so well with the shimmer in Desert Fruit. Don't forget to check out all the other purple golden oldies. Maybe you will find a new love buried somewhere in these posts!
