It Style ~ 41


It Style ~ 41   
Deep red-ish purple with a very subtle blue duochrome

I got this deep purple polish in a swap with Elsa from Like a Candy Shop.  "It Style" is a totally unknown brand for me, but I would certainly have picked this polish myself had I been given the chance. Purple is my favourite colour nail polish, and this is such a rich, squishy purple!

The formula was different to any of my other polishes. I don’t know how to explain it, but it was thick in a delicious way. I applied a coat, and could really see that this purple is based on red. The second coat hid every sign of red though, and just left this deep, beautiful purple crème polish.

No top coat yet:



And here’s a shot from another angle. The duochrome is very subtle. Perhaps it’s more visible in the sun, but alas – it was evening and grey when I made this mani.


You don’t expect to keep it like this, do you? There’s no way I can leave such a mani alone. I chose a couple of stripers from Essence; A pink one called “04 Pink !” and a holographic silver glitter called “10 more than silver”.

I made one stripe of each colour diagonally on the nails. And then I topped it all with Poshé top coat. I just love that top coat – it’s my favourite one.


I thought about making a couple of dots underneath the stripes, but decided not to. I like the stripes though – the pink is cool, and the glitter just adds that little extra that I like so much!


The involved polishes:


Do you like the mani? Would you have liked it more with dots as well?
