NOTD: Claire's Bright Shimmer Purple

Two coats of Claire’s Bright Shimmer Purple from the Shine Bright Nail Polish Set of 5. Bright Purple with Red Undertones.

I love this color, but…I don’t love it on me. The best way to describe the shade is Grape. It’s purple with subtle silver shimmer throughout, yes; but the red undertones give it a grape-y look that just doesn’t vibe with my skintone. That said, the formula is awesome {identical to that of the Claire's Neon Pink}.

Though this color doesn't come across as a neon to me {just bright}, it does dry like one - completely matte {I added shine with one coat of Poshe Super-Fast Drying Top Coat}. I found that the first coat was a teeny tiny bit translucent and streaky; but everything looked fab after coat two. And chipping? Zero from day 1 through day 4 {when I removed it}.

What nail color are you rocking for #ManicureMonday?

I think that shiny top coat does the trick. That would be definitely something to invest in.

I like "Private Veiwing" from Megalast's Halloween collection..although, its more of a nude color.

Oh so cool. Very summery! I'm not certain I care fro MY FAVORITE MARTIAN from Confetti..although, its hunter green. I have to use a lot of it to make it visible.

Sweet! I loved your review on this one. I thought I had a really good product for a French Mani from Sally Hansen, but it turns out it was quite what I'd hoped for.

It is a pretty cool color. I like that it looks more matte instead of neon and shiny.

I'm currently wearing Wine Not by Sally Hansen.
