// NARS - 'Purple Rain'

pr1


I can't help but sing the song as I write this.. PURPLE RAINNN. This gorgeous colour was released last fall by NARS and one of my good friends Sophie gave this bad boy to me. I have to admit I had only swatched it and today was the first time I applied it. WHY? I don't know it is so beautiful. The thing I love most is that it comes out exactly how it appears in the bottle, CHANEL take notes!

I had so many comments on this colour today and I think again, it's perfect for this time of year. I just wish one thing, that it didn't chip as quickly as it has. I haven't really been a fan of metallic/shimmery nails but I am slowly swaying. With colours like this and Illamasqua's Viridian I am almost converted. It really reminds me of a Barry M one I used to wear in my teens, I'm not sure if they still make it and I have no idea what the colour is? Does anyone know?

Off the subject, but semi on the subject.. Have you noticed how every year someone on the X Factor sings 'Purple Rain'. I think my all time favourite has to be Ruth Lorrenzo, I loved her performance in case you haven't seen it or don't remember here it is.





What do you think? What are your must have colours for AW10? Who are you routing for on X factor this year?


Lots of Love

  1. Gosh do a similar metallic/shimmery colour called Purple Heart which looks like a gun metal grey/black but when the light hits it, it's purple. Wears really well and doesn't chip. Ruth Lorenzo's performance is definitely my favourite! This year's Treyc was only alright compared!

  2. Oo it's lovely! It looks similar to Barry M's Vivid Purple which I think they do still make coz it's on their website.

  9. I love this color! I have a question, since you paint your nails so often do you use a base and top coat? and if so what do you use/like?
    Thanks!
