#TheLacquerRing: Purple

#TheLacquerRing is back for the month of February. Cynthia, Of Life and Lacquer, has picks this month. For her color choice she went with purple. I can get on board with purple. 

For this look, I started with what else, a purple base. This is Models Own Purple Rain. It's ok if you start singing the song, I haven't been able to get it out of my head while wearing this polish. Purple Rain is a deep grape purple that leans deep blue in some lighting. This was two easy coats, no application problems at all. 




After my base was all dry then the fun really began. I laid down some striping tape in a simple pattern and then put down two coats of F.U.N. Lacquer Evening Gown. Evening Gown is an intense dark purple filled with linear holographic rainbows. 




I'm in love with this look y'all. I want to do more of these color on color striping looks. I'm in love with that holo from F.U.N. Lacquer. Meow!!  Be sure to check out the other purple looks from Amanda, Lesley, Jessica, Nicole, Voni, Frosso, and Cynthia below.
