ILNP (I ♥ Nail Polish) ~ Grape Alicious

ILNP (I Nail Polish) ~ Grape Alicious
Deep purple linear holo

Grape Alicious has been sitting in the box of untrieds for quite a while. There was a time where I bought a lot of dark, vampy polishes. Unfortunately I don’t really wear super dark polishes a lot. But oh well, you live and you learn, and now I’m not buying many dark polishes.

The formula is okay. The first coat went on a bit streaky and weird. The second coat did the trick though, and covered all little irregularities. The drying time is good too.

Here’s two coats taken with flash:

Here’s a daylight picture. It’s still a really nice, deep purple.

I stamped zebra stripes on it to lighten it up a bit. The zebra stripes are from  Moyou London’s stamping plate Back to the 80’s-04 and I stamped with a purple metallic polish from Barry M called Lilac Foil. I bought it for stamping and that’s all I ever use it for.

This is the final mani, including a layer of topcoat. The picture is taken with flash.

Here’s the daylight picture.

I like Grape Alicious so much better with a stamp on top and I think these two purples go really well together.

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Linear holo
Overall impression: Nice vampy colour, good polish
Buy again: Probably not, but only because it’s a bit too dark for me


  1. Wonderful with the zebra stripes. I don't often wear dark nail polishes but from time to time, why not? And it's a pretty dark navy-blue.

    1. True that, why not? I just don't like them on me if they look black :)

  2. It's gorgeous, and the stripes suit it!

  3. Beautiful color, I love and wear often dark shades :)

    1. Thank you :) I really like the look of dark shades, but I don't wear them that often :)

  4. Oh my, this dark holo is just fantastic <3
