Color Focus: Purple Nail Polish Photos & Swatches

Thanks to several e-mails and other blog recommendations, I checked out the new Hard Candy Mr. Wrong at Walmart and the new OPI Merry Midnight Nail Polishes. Hard Candy Mr. Wrong is very sparkly with a base similar to Dior's Silver Purple but with chunky gold glitter mixed in. I was initially worried that OPI's Merry Midnight would be too over the top, but when I tried it on at home, it turned out really pretty. The formula is super sheer though and required 3 full coats for me. Here are a few swatch pictures to compare.

Unique Purples: Hard Candy Mr. Wrong (Walmart), Dior Silver Purple (Holiday 2009), Dior Lemon Balm (Nordstrom Exclusive)

Plummy-Mauve Purples: Le Metier Violaceous Splendor, OPI Merry Midnight, Le Metier Black Orchid

* Note, the OPI Merry Midnight sparkle doesn't show up so well in the swatch photo, I highly recommend you check out All Lacquered Up or Scrangie's Blogs for better swatch pictures!

Light purple shades: Like purples, but don't like darker colors? Check out Le Metier de Beaute Phlox, Chanel Violette, MAC Love & Friendship
