After much discussion of what colour violet really is, more blue or more pink and spreading all of my purple-ish polishes on the floor much to the confusion of my cats, and headed to wikipedia (because wiki answers everything) which says “Violet is the color of amethyst, lavender and beautyberries”.

I have a Maybelline polish that was one of my top choices for this violet look named Amethyst Ablaze so I went with that and here is my stamped look for day 6 of #31DC2016.  I actually have a polish named BeautyBerry too but it seemed too pink for this violet look so I decided to skip it in favour of a lilac to complete the look.

Polishes used are

  • Sally Hansen Xteme Wear in Lacey Lilac
  • Maybelline Color Show in Amethyst Ablaze
  • Mundo de Unas in Fantasy
  • MoYou London in White Knight
  • Born Pretty BPL-027 stamping plate

Sadly, the Amethyst was covered more than I thought by the white stamping.  I attempted using Lacey Lilac over my base but it was not opaque enough to cover the darker base so white it is.  Check back tomorrow to see the next look in the #31DC2016 challenge!
