A throwback to Fall 2011 and the Fall Fashionista collection from FingerPaints - here is Purple Pinstripe, a dusty purple creme. This was one that I was really looking forward to because I'm a sucker for all purples (if you haven't noticed!). As you can see, the bottom of my bottle has some brown/yellow coloring. Since this color was sitting on my shelf, the colors had separated so I shook it like a Polaroid (not really, I did a lot of shaking though) until it was thoroughly mixed again. I used a base of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and a top of CND Air Dry. The formula was smooth and didn't pool into my cuticles.
Now oddly, the color just didn't "stick" well to my ring finger and it doesn't look quite opaque. I'm not sure what's going on there. I also need to pay better attention to my cuticles apparently. I've been using Julep Cuticle Oil more, especially since I have 2 of them now from my Maven boxes. Seriously, cuticle care is a must for everyone. Now I just need to sneak oil on my boyfriend's hands...
Here in the shade, the color looks a little less dusty and a little more plummy. I still love it.
Finally indoors with the flash and again you can see that issue with the ring finger but the other nails are perfectly opaque. If you don't own a nice purple creme like this, you may have to get it. :] It's also a great base for some layering (coming soon!).
