China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le

Check it out!  My bottle is totally floating.

China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le was a blue (yes blue) from the Operation: Colour Fall 2007 collection and requested from reader Brittany, so here you go girl!  Now, I know that China Glaze's own website has this as a purple on their website swatches, but I assure you, it's not purple!  I used a base of Seche Natural, 2 coats of Secret Peri-Wink-Le and a top coat of Seche Vite.  This was an opaque polish but I nicked my index finger as I was walking outside to take pictures.  Also, note that my awesome bottle says "Secrect", not "Secret".  ^_^

In the sun you can see that this polish looks a little thin but really I needed to buff my ridges out (or use a ridge filler, but I prefer buffing).  My bottle is also a little weathered.  I know you can add thinner to thick polishes but sometimes I wonder how to make polishes thicker?  This really wasn't the case here, because it is a great polish even 3 years later.  This was actually the first collection I ever purchased (and I didn't purchase the entire collection!).

In the shade you can see a bit of blurple but it's still way more blue.  It kind of reminds me of a corn silk blue?  Either way, it's a nice creme that would go great with some daisy nail art I think!

China Glaze [official website] can be found online through several etailers, including my favorite Head2Toe Beauty [official website], Sally's Beauty Supply [official website] as well asTransDesign [official website].


  1. Ive always wanted this delicious shade! Its a blue periwinkle bliss! Im glad the bottle lasted so long! What a fun color to wear!

  2. I love this shade, on of my favourites all time. So pretty!

  3. I really love this color. I was surprised when I wore it at how much I liked it. It's like a neutral blue if there was such a thing.

  4. Thanks so much for swatching this!!
    I kinda really like it...might have to pick it up :D

    Thanks again!!

  5. I love this color. I also purchased essie lapis of luxury, which is very similar (takes 3 coats to opacity) I prefer secret peri-winkle as it only needs 2 coats. I agree is more blue than purple.

  6. I have this one too. It's super cute!!! =)

  7. You know Beata - I didn't even think about Lapis of Luxury, which I have a mini of - I'm going to have to try the two together!
