W7 Purple Paradise

A commentor on my recent dusky pink manicure said that she would like to see me wear a “deep decadent purple”. I have several in the untried stash that I think suit that description, so it was easy enough to oblige.

This is W7 Purple Paradise. It’s a deep purple alright. I’m not sure how decadent it is, but I think the subtle pinky bronze shimmer gives it a metallic quality, and that has to be decadent, right?!

Sadly, the shimmer isn’t as visible or as beautiful as I’ve seen it on other blogs. I think it would require sunlight for that.

This polish dries really quickly, so the first coat saw me getting used to it. I managed to splodge quite a lot because of that, and so there was more clean up required than usual. But after two coats of polish, it was perfect.

I love this colour so much and will be wearing it a lot.

Good heavens yes, that looks delicious. You have me doing crazy things now, looking for the Chanel Le Vernis 583 Taboo – that one completely and totally hit the spot. Hubby is treating me to a CND Shellac mani and pedi too thanks to your blog!

I’ve found the Taboo and will be ordering it online soon 🙂

Love your blog!!
