30 Day Challenge Day Six - VIOLET with Barry M Bright Purple

Barry M Bright Purple




For VIOLET day I chose Barry M Bright Purple. Violet is one of my all-time FAVORITE colors and I prefer something between violet and red violet like this one. When I first saw "violet" I thought purple, which it is, but I wanted to make sure my perception of what violet is matched what violet actually is. So I pulled up a color chart.





My favorite shade is the violet of a wine cup flower...






Since I'd already used Illamasqua Stance (which is a perfect match for the wine cup) that left Barry M Bright Purple! Bright Purple is just one of these gorgeous violet shades that I love. Application was great - smooth formula. Two easy coats for full opacity. Shown in all photos with two coats of color and no top coat. It dries very shiny.

  3. I'm always confused about the different shades and names of purple! I just picked two that were neither too blue nor too red. This is a pretty shade you're wearing!

  5. I adore the Barry M polishes I have - they are hard to come by in the USA and wish that was not the case - I think Barry M would sell volumes if they could find a way to distribute to US drug stores. Thanks for the look at this flower - had never heard of it before now and will be off to look it up on line to read more about it - off the top of my head looking like it might be in the poppy family. I love purple polishes too - all but when they get into the chalky white range of pastel lavenders - then I cannot wear 'em. I think outside of the norm range of nail polishes...it probably was purple I first branched out to using. I know I did not warm up to greens when they first were appearing around the time of say OPI's Canada collection release with Quebec something something. I can recall seeing that and thinking I would never be wearing green polish! I would be hard pressed to pick a fav purple polish of mine.
