This week’s manicure was inspired by Jen at PolishAholic although it really looks nothing like hers at this point. Jen created a left to right ombre effect with her purple polishes and while I love purple, apparently I do not like it enough to buy them all in coordiating tones (at least not yet). So I decided to use the new Julep eggplant purple nail polish accented with a gold by L’oreal (#580). Here is my final inspiration:
While it doesn’t look as elegant as Jen’s I quite like it. I would like to try it again with a thinner brush and without the gold accent nail; although I do like the combination without the wisps (above).
Dark eggplant is a wonderful nail color for this fall and gold dresses it up. Do you have any favorite purples in your nail stash you could dress up with some gold accents?
