Saturday Swatch Spam: W7 Purples

Greetings All!

I warned you spam was coming! Lol I've been testing out loads of nail polish this week, and now I'm spamming you with the results!

Today, various purple from W7. I actually have loads of their nail polish (as I found out when organising!) and I would recommend them. The wear time isn't great, and a lot of their colours aren't especially exciting or original, but they have a solid range of 'core' polishes (black, white, red etc), a large range of glitters, and they do dabble in the extraordinary (their sprinkles range is gorgeous!) all at a very reasonable price!

First up is Purple Paradise, which is your standard royal purple shimmer. it isn't especially exciting but it is a nice example. This is 2 coats.

Unfortunately, I don't think this is rich enough. It's just a little bit flat and boring.

Next is Purple Dazzle. which is a blurple glitter. Usually my camera shows purple as blue, but in this case it was pretty colour accurate! This is 3 coats for full coverage, over Purple Paradise.

I like this because it is slightly more unusual than a lot of glitters. It isn't quite purple, it isn't quite blue, it's in between and i don't think I have any other polishes like it!

Last but not least is Cosmic Purple. This is a much more interesting glitter! Blue and magenta glitter in a purple jelly base that is quite sheer. It just adds enough colour to help with full coverage. This is 2 coats.

I think it's supposed to look purple overall, but to me it's more of a blue and pink glitter! I do like it though, and I especially like the jelly base. It's a lovely shade and I think it really helps to tie the glitter together. This is my favourite of the three.

So there you go! 3 less polishes in the untried pile!


  1. Cosmic Purple was on my lust list for the longest time but I was bought a couple of similar ones for christmas so no need to get it now. Still lovely mind :)

  2. Oh have you a fb fan page? Just I've given your blog a shout out on my fb 'fan' page and wanted to link you properly if you have one :)

    1. Thank you! No I don't, I've considered it, but I just never seem to get round to it!

    2. No worries, hope it helps your blog :)

  3. Purple paradise is so pretty.
