Pretty & Polished - The Color Purple Collection

*Press Sample*

Earlier this summer I had the opportunity to review a few of the colors from the Pretty & Polished Happy Hour Collection and a number of luxurious mani and bath products (which I loved!!) So when Chelsea asked me if I'd be available to review her new collection I was thrilled at the opportunity. What I didn't know is how much I'd LOVE it!

Without further ado, lets meet The Color Purple Collection! This is a collection of five colors all based in the purple color family but diverse and completely different from one another. I asked Chelsea, the creator of Pretty & Polished about her inspiration behind the collection. Here is what she told me:
Well first of all my favorite color is purple. I feel like it's one of those colors you can do anything with. It always looks good and there is so much depth in the color purple. My favorite of the collection is probably this is my jam. I worked on that shade the longest. It's really dark but it has a lot to offer. The way the metallic glitters pop in the dark base and the almost green shimmer really make it a polish you can stare at for long periods of time. Plus it's like a trick polish. It's purple, but it looks almost black when you wear it.

This collection is definitely different than any other collection I've done. Focusing on one color was really interesting. I had to find a way to keep each polish interesting and I didn't want to use any of the same colored bases. I used about 15 different pigments for these five shades and I couldn't be happier with the results. 

 I'll Be Your Huckleberry is a stunning dark purple crelly holographic with tiny berry colored flakes.This polish is simply stunning with the holo and the berry flakes. I used two flawless coats with top coat.

My Favorite Blurple (MFB) is a Blurple (purple/blue) thermal shade that changes to a bright blue when warm/hot. It has a holographic sparkle as well as a sprinkling of special blue/purple flakes. One of the first thermal polishes I ever had was from Pretty & Polished and this one rocks too! Remember to store thermal polishes out of direct sunlight and at room temperature to make it last longer. I've shown this polish with two coats and top coat.




The Grape Flake is a bright  purple crelly polish packed with multicolored flakes. This may be my favorite of the collection because I just feel its so unique. First I love a good crelly. Second this is a unique shade of purple I don't have in my collection and 3, FLAKES! Look at those multicolored flakes! Shown with 2 coats and top coat. You can also wear this polish without top coat for a more matte look (or add matte top coat).

Violet Femmes is a full coverage holographic glitter polish packed with purple and violet glitters. This polish has strong holographic sparkle and glitter. Purple glitter? Yes please! Two coats and top coat make for a flawless mani.

This is my Jam
is a very dark purple jelly packed with berry blues, purples, and pink metallic glitter. This polish is very dark and can appear almost black on the nail! As mentioned above this is one of the creator's favorites from the collection and I'm sure you can see why! Such a stare-worthy shade. Again two coats with top coat shown here.

The Color Purple Collection is available now on Pretty & Polished website for $8.50 to $9.00. While your there be sure to check out the bath and body section as well. I recently reviewed a few of the mani melts and bath bombs which you can check out here.
