Picture Polish Imperial is a bright purple creme-based polish with tons of shimmer, especially blue glass-fleck shimmer, and small pale gold hex glitter. The glitter sometimes gives off more of a rose-gold look when it’s shining through the purple base. I used two coats of Imperial, plus top coat.
Under ott lite:
Zoya Isa is a great blue-toned purple with blue-to-pink duochrome glass flecks. Zoya Aphrodite is a red jelly with pink-to-gold glass flecks. I used two coats of Isa and three of Aphrodite.

I added stamping on Aphrodite using LA Girl Millennium and an image from Pueen Fancy Lover 01.
Just a quick post to share my favourite neon purple, That’s Shore Bright by China Glaze! Being a neon purple, it’s hard to photograph accurately. I had to use my phone because it’s much more accurate for certain shades of purple and blue than my camera is! The first photos are under Ott Lite.
I used three coats of polish plus top coat here. The next photos are under halogen light.
Here are two gorgeous Picture Polishes, New York and Ornate!
New York is a rich rose pink scattered holo and Ornate is a plum purple scattered holo with medium golden hex glitter and small fuchsia glitter.
I stamped them with Colour Alike A Juicy Tangerine and an image from It Girl plate 103.
Here’s a picture including the plate… which I hadn’t cleaned off yet. Love the It Girl plates!
Here’s a very purple mani combining the awesome A England Crown of Thistles with the awesome Amethyst or Am I That? from the Pretty and Polished dusty cremes collection as the accent nail. Under Ott lite:
I used teo coats of each polish plus top coat, by the way. With flash:
And then I added stamping using A Berry Smoothie by Colour Alike and my favourite stamping image everrrr from It Girl plate 101! It looks like Penrose Tiles!! Ok, it’s probably actually Penrose pseudo-tiles, I haven’t checked yet. Note to self: nobody knows what you’re talking about, math geek! 😛 Hehe. Anyway… Love this stamping image!!!
The mani I have to show you today features three great polishes and an awesome stamping plate from It Girl Nail Art.
On my index and middle finger are two coats plus top coat of Picture Polish Eerie, a lilac “bijou holo” i.e. scattered holo with multicoloured glass flecks. On my ring and pinkie, three coats plus top coat of Kunimitsu Nail Potions Red Empress, a great bluish lilac crelly with pink shimmer and various glitters in red, pink and copper.
I added stamping on the index finger using Colour Alike stamping polish “A Sunset” and an image from It Girl plate 101 from their recently released first set of three stamping plates.
I even took pictures of my right hand, that’s how much I loved this mani! 😉 So, here are (entirely too many) random pics of this on both hands!
Here’s a picture of the It Girl plate. These are rectangular plates 6cm by 12cm long, and the images are quite large so no worries about them being too small for long or large nails. I’m going to be having a giveaway soon for one of the It Girl plates along with some other goodies so stay tuned for that. 🙂
Zoya Mason is a gorgeous red-toned purple shimmer with red pigment sparks. I paired it with Colour Alike 547, which has a brown-plum base with holo and duochrome that shifts blue-purple-plum-fuchsia-orange. I used two coats plus top coat for each of these polishes.
