OPI Purple With A Purpose

*Nothing to disclose

Hello! A quick post tonight to show off an oldie but a goodie from OPI. It’s called Purple With A Purpose and from what I can find it’s from the 2006 Brights Collection. If my photos look a bit different it’s because they’re taken in my new lightbox my husband made for me! He got an old wine case and cut holes in the sides and then put up a little white backdrop inside it. At first he used thick paper to cover the holes, but in the end I put normal pieces of A4 paper over the holes, as the light wouldn’t go through the thick paper properly. The light I have is a bit orange, so I’ll need to get a whiter bulb, but I think I’ve done alright for my first go. Also a big thank you to the greatest husband ever!

Purple With A Purpose is, if you can’t tell, a purple shimmer. It’s a pretty vanilla polish, but it’s very pretty. The shimmer in it is blue and purple. Unfortunately my photos are showing you the polish a lot darker than it actually is, the purple has more red in it than what you see. Sorry. What you see on my nails is two coats.
