Purple rain, ehm gradient!

Hi all :)

This is a mani I had hoped to do more with.. I just did this quickly before going to a birthday party.. My plan was to add some more the day after, buut it chipped fast.. But I still liked it and got a ton of compliments on it :) That's always nice!

But these pics are NOT AT ALL color accurate.. I can never photograph purples properly but I'm sure a lot of you have the same problem.

Here you can see a bit more of the shimmer :)

And a close-up:

I didn't get a pic of the polishes used, so I'll list them: As a base color I used: Eyeko Lilac Polish. I can't remember in which order I used these, cause they are fairly similar: H&M Fashioonista and Hello Kitty by H&M I Love Candy. The last one I used was Elf Dark Glitter Purple..

So that is it for today :)

Do you have any tips and tricks for photographing purples? Or is it just an impossible task? :p

Have fun and take care!


  1. Very pretty gradient! There's something magical in your close up pic <3

  2. This is gorgeous, perfect gradient and I LOVE the purple!
