The last of the holographic collection. Paint it Pretty Polish Purple Thunder is a medium blurple holographic polish with a blue shimmer. It shows a darker grape purple in the bottle but leans more blue on my skintone. Paint it Pretty Polishes is a Canadian indie maker based in Beamsville, Ontario. Her polishes are five free, vegan and available through her Etsy store.

Paint it Pretty Polish Purple Thunder Swatches (Holographic Collection)
This is probably the most true to colour on my skin tone. You can see some of the grape purple base on my baby finger and cuticle edges. But it generally has more of a blue tone. The linear holo is strong, but not quite as strong as some of the others in the holographic collection.
Purple Thunder by Paint it Pretty Polish is more opaque than some of the polishes in the holographic collection. Only two coats needed even with my usually visible nail line under lights. The formula is decent. It had a couple of bald spots where it pulled with brush strokes on the first coat but levelled easily with the second coat.
Dry time was decent. I wore this one, so the first coat was dry by the time I had finished both hands. It does dry quite matte so use your glossiest top coat to bring out the beautiful shimmer and holo in Purple Thunder.
