OPI Nicole - Virtuous Violet

I got this polish from the sweet Shainia of Haute Lacquer Blog a while ago, it was the first swap we did together, and have swapped since then......

Now IL be honest i wanted it more for the shape of the bottle, but when i got it, it didn't tickle my fancy as much as i thought it would, the polish didn't impress me much either, it took 4 layers to get it like it is in the photo, plus it was so hard to photograph because those of you who own OPI Nicole Virtuous Violet  know its much more purple then it is here, the pics show it as a blue but it looks nothing like that on my nails, and i tried every kind of light but i couldn't get it to show true to the shade.

The shiny parts around my fingers and cuticles isn't top coat its Almond Oil lol i don't colour outside the lines that much hehehehe......all in all i hated the application and the way it looked on my nails, how ever looking at the photos it looks quite impressive...i didn't wear it long so i cant tell you how it wore.....but with 4 layers on i assume it would of  lasted well......

If your looking for a cheaper alternative to this then id go for Sally Hansens Xtreme Wear in Deep Purple, or even Purple Pulse from ally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure.
