Priti NYC ~ Etoile Violet



Priti NYC ~ Etoile Violet
Purple shimmer

It was Maria who sent me Etoile Violet as a random act of kindness. Why on earth she decided to part with such a pretty purple is beyond me, but I am very grateful for it! :)

This is my first (and only) Priti NYC, so I didn’t know what to expect quality-wise. I was pleasantly surprised: the formula is good and the polish covers in two easy coats. The drying time between the coats is good too.

Here’s what the polish looks like – 2 coats, no topcoat:


That’s a pretty purple if there ever was one!


I decided to add a bit of bling! I applied a layer of H&M’s Confetti Kisses, which is a multisized silver glitter in a clear base. I love the bottle! Here’s my mani:


And a close up:



Here’s a link to Maria’s swatch of Etoile Violet. She has been able to catch some shimmer on cam that I couldn’t see in real life. Impressive! :)

I can’t thank you enough for this cool polish, Maria!
