This week I feel... purple-y

Did you know that when you are writing, it is a rather horrid thing to be accused of having a purple patch?  But since it is fall, and I think hazy shades of purple are rather marvelous in the Fall, I'm going to celebrate it with a Purple Patch nail polish color collection!  Here's my first installment.

I stumbled across this a blog called I'd rather have a cup of tea with Cath Kidston inspired blue and white polka dot nails and I loved it!  Then I saw these nails, so pretty, pink and 1960s and was inspired.  Since my nails were already longish and oval from last week's vintage manicure, I decided to keep the look and exaggerate it a bit more.  Why not?  These 80s nails make me feel sixteen again.

I used Essie Splash of Grenadine and then added a top coat of Love My Nails Dazzling for a touch of sparkle, although it's not quite as glitter ball as I hoped.

Stay tune for more Purple Patch nails!
