Whew...that's a lot of purple! Its really hard to name my favorites because I love them all. I really, really like Zoya Charisma, Zoya Caitlin, OPI Grape...Set...Match and Barielle Welcome OHM. There are a couple that are way too similar, but the two that stick out the most are Charisma and Sinful Colors Dream On. Who knew these were total dupes?!? I just realized that I didn't swatch any of the fall Cult Nails polishes onto wheels, so Enigmatic is missing but I've blogged about that one as well. As usual, let me know if there are any you want to see!

What's your favorite purple polish?

That's a lot of purple! LOL--I'm getting there, too. My purple count is really creeping up on me! I haven't worn my My Kind of Cool Aid yet, but I love that I just picked it out from your polish wheels thinking, "Oooh, what's that pretty color?" Can't wait to wear it!

I also really like Caitlin (Zoya) and OPI Grape Set Match too. That gives a good range of purple from the dusty to a real purple that is not moved into the purple/back set. I have a really old OPI that the bottom label has fallen off of - I think it might be Loyalty Island Lilac. It's from the black label days and I only have less than half the bottle left, but it's one I often will use on bridal parties when they are in soft shades. I need to look for some on line swatches of that shade to see if that name matches up to my bottle - but my memory is pretty good and I think that is the one. It has a semi sheer duochrome lavender/rpink with some iridescent to it as well. That shade has had my heart for a long time. Like you, purples take up the 2nd most amount of my stash with reds being the biggest I think. I need to finish up 2 more really old boxes of polish on my database to get a final tally of pinks vs reds vs purples. It's getting scary as I am up to 800 and something in my database - no wonder I don't have anywhere to keep more shades I keep getting (though am on hiatus for purchases now due to saving for my % of a major surgery coming up I have to see how much my part is before I buy any treats and save what income I do have to pay regular bills as well as that surgery % coming up which will have to go on payment schedule with the hospital. Dr. is accepting what insurance pays as his payment in full - really grateful for that! I love my purples!

I don't understand how come Zoya has no Susan or Suzie or anything even close to that which is my name. They have a zillion ladies names and not mine. I feel like the kid looking at the licence plates for the kids bikes and never finding your name on any stand!

KayJay at Refined & Polished said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

They don't have my name either. :(

I like purples that lean more blue than red. The purple I really want is China Glaze, Grape Pop. But, my favorite purple in my stash is WnW Buffy the Violet Slayer. Zoya's Kelly is an awesome greyed out purple that I dig too.

I LOVE purple, in a huge way. My dining room is a dusty eggplant, my wedding party was royal purple, and of course I own a ton of purple polish. Have you ever tried China Glaze Let's Groove? OMG it's amazing! A must have for a purple polish lover!! ♥

KayJay at Refined & Polished said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Let's Groove is one sexy purple! Purple was one of my wedding colors too! The girls and I all wore purple nails.
