Hey There Polished People!
Today The Lacquer Ring is doing purple nails, as chosen by Cynthia from Of Life and Lacquer.
I recently saw Patti Stanger from The Millionaire Matchmaker tweeting about how purple is a “man-catcher” color and then just by coincidence I was wearing a purple top and when my husband got home from work, he was telling me how nice I looked and I was like, “maybe she’s right!” Haha. Maybe my husband doesn’t count since he’s already “caught” but it was pretty funny.
When I heard that this month’s color prompt was purple I really wanted to do something special. If you follow me on Facebook and Instagram you probably saw one failed purple mani that ended up ok looking, but not all that purple exactly. I tried several manis and the one I’m showing you today is probably my favorite of the ones I tried, but it’s not as special as I really wanted this month’s TLR nails to be. Now they I’ve all but persuaded you to just leave my site and go check out someone else’s nails, let’s see it-
Purple Masked Affair Gradient Nails
For these nails I used Essence Break Through and L’oreal Masked Affair on a Dollar Tree makeup sponge to do the gradient. I used my handy dandy latex hair glue around my cuticles to minimize the mess and let me tell you- that stuff works like a charm! When my gradient was as good as it was gonna get and my cuticles were clean, I slapped on some Seche Vite and ta-daaaaa! Purple. Nails. Did.

Have you ever thought of purple as a man-catcher color?? I thought that was so funny when I heard it. No wonder Cynthia picked this color. 😉 What’s your favorite nail polish color? As always thank you all for reading and commenting and till next time- Happy Polishing!
