Nubar - Violet Sparkle

Hello people! How are you doing? I hope you're having a good start of the week. Since I talked so much in my previous posts, let's keep this one short and simple, what do you say? It's the first Nubar, and I couldn't resist the violet temptation. Although, I must say, as gorgeous as it is on the nails, it has been a complete nightmare to photograph. It's impossible. Never had my camera failed to bring the accurate shade of purple, but this one made it go crazy, it kept going blue. Really light blue, and it's not! It's a total intense, dark purple, that glitters in dark purple and magenta pink. No signs of blue! This is the best I could do, after checking all the options on the camera and doing million photos on just about every lighting I could find. Alas no sun. I'm showing you here basically only the glitter intensity, I don't see the point in showing you pictures that are not colour accurate.

 The closest I got to the real colour.

 Big on glitter!

 You can see how insanely sparkly this gets.

Even when not blurry it's still sparkly.

And this is Milka purple that it's painfully not accurate. I found that from other swatches on the internet The Hungry Asian's is the best: Violet Sparkle real colour. Can you see the colour difference? Insane! I swear it's the first time this happened and I'm really not happy about it. All the other purples behaved very nicely, even the ones with the same intensity of the colour. So maybe it's the glitter that makes my camera crazy? I don't know.

But anyway, Violet Sparkle is to die for. I absolutely adore it. A waitress  where me and a friend of mine were having coffee acutally demanded that I write her down the name of the polish, she was so impressed with the colour and sparkles. If that's not a compliment for a nail polish I don't know what it is. :)

This was three coats, of course, and I still think it's impressive that glitter-only polish is opaque in three coats. I put two coats of SV on top, to make it smooth. It is glitter, so with removal I really recommend foil technique and no reusal of the pads. I did that and regreted it, since the tiny glitter then gets on your skin and it's quite hard to get it off. Oh, btw, correction pens really help with glitter that is stuck under you nail or at the very edges!

That's all for now, folks! I hope you like it and I'm sorry for bad colour accuracy. It's a first, and I'll really try hard to make it the last one too!

Thanks for reading!
