NOTD: China Glaze’s Purr-fect plum

Saturday, November 03, 2012

Here’s one of the fall polishes I hauled months ago from China Glaze’s on safari collection.

Purr-fect plum looks like a deep burgundy wine but in some light settings it shows up purple, that berry/plum colour. The bottle shade is a little deceiving, I chose Purr-fect plum thinking it’ll turn out to be that typical purple eggplant colour but it definitely dries much darker on the nails. I still liked it even though it’s not entirely original.

This shade was quite dense, not as much as Adventure red-y from the same collection so I wouldn’t say it’s enough to get away with one coat, two would be ideal here. The formula feels a little thicker than usual but not to the point where you find it hard to work with, it still goes on smooth.

I like to do water marble designs now and then but not every polish is right for this nail art method. I’d say most of the ones from the safari collection wouldn’t be appropriate for it considering their thick consistency might not spread nicely in the water. I’ve given one of the polishes a try and it didn’t really work out well; don’t remember exactly which one though.

P.s The China Glaze fast forward top coat may not be the best out there but I do think it provides a nice glossy finish. Can you see the lovely blue sky and fluffy white clouds on my nails in the second picture? :D  

Did you pick up any from the Safari collection? What’s your favourite fall shades this year?
