|Pop Beauty Nail Glam in Violetta|
The biggest of the 3 Ulta's near me has a huge selection, much bigger than the other two. While traipsing through the Uber Ulta, I noticed there was a selection of Pop Beauty Nail Glam nail polishes. I usually pass over the Pop Beauty display because nothing catches my eye. Needless to say this did. The bottle is 15ml for $10. So for a mid-range cosmetics company, that's quite a bargain. The display had about a dozen *very* brightly colored polishes, and Violetta was the one that jumped into my basket.
The color is described as "Fluro Purple". I don't think I would describe it as fluorescent purple, but it is a bright purple creme that throws more red than blue. The application was fine, but the wand was a bit awkward as the shaft was extra long. It went on in two nice coats, though.
|Such short nails!|
I'm starting to realize that I like a bit more than just a plain creme, even if the creme is a good color. As I was staring at this, I wanted to add some little shimmer on top of it. I recently found a bottle of Orly polish that is a clear polish with pink shimmer suspended in it. I though that would look great over this color.
|Violetta with one coat of Orly Fifty-Four|
This is one coat of Orly Fifty-four over top of the Violetta. I was having problems really capturing the pink shimmer, as it was very subtle. Just enough to satisfy my desire for shimmery polishes.
I'm wondering how this will look layered on top of an already shimmery polish.
The bad news is that this polish chipped pretty badly within 24 hours. I had a massive chip on my right pointer finger, followed by smaller chips on both middle fingers and a thumb. So, off it comes to make way for something new.
