Nail Polish of the Day: MAC Varicose Violet
Happy Friday everyone! This crazy holiday week is finally coming to an end and what better way to celebrate with some spring purple fever.
Varicose Violet ($10), a semi-sheer light purple with pink and blue shimmer that was released with the Dame Edna collection last week. To acheive bottle color you need a firm three coats or more. I see alot of us passing on this because of that reason, but it's very pretty. Perhaps one of the key products in the release.
Check out one more swatch below.
The blue shimmer is more overpowering than the pink and leaves a blue like iridescent glaze on top. But, it's not exactly a true lavender purple. The pink undertone makes it a smudge lighter towards purple-pink.
Tonight, my hubb's sister and boyfriend are coming over and it's about wii! Have a great night! Think postive thoughts all.

That is such a pretty colour! I think I need it - don't care that I will need to do 3 coats. Hope you had a great WII evening. And thanks for the comment about thinking positive thoughts - I needed that today.

Hi Hanneri, I totally agree. Heck, three coats is pretty much a standard for me anyway :). It was a great evening thanks for asking :) Wii is a such a great system - I love it. you can never get enough positive inspriations, at least that's my thought. I'm going to start including little messages hoping it will help someone have a better day :)

Ooh Zara, Love that color. OMG, I love Wii!!! Bowling is one of my fav's. I spend the most time on that - also love tennis, golf and mario cart. Have you played mario cart with the driving wheel? It's super fun!
