Mani Monday – Purple Tips

There is a definite purple theme going on with this week’s manicure and as you can see, I had quite a few options…


I started off with three thin layers of Nails Inc’s Manor House Drive. This is part of their ‘The New White’ range and always looks really crisp and clean.

I decided to use two purple chrome-effect nail varnishes on the tips in diagonal sweeps of colour. My nails aren’t that long at the moment so I did use a nail art brush to draw the lines on…and even then, they aren’t all perfect!

The first shade is a Rimmel 60-Seconds shade called Magnetise which has a lovely blue tone to it in different light.


Secondly, the darker shade is a Revlon Chroma Chameleon colour called Tanzanite and I used a nail brush to apply it.

I sealed the whole thing with a layer of Seche Vite which not only left my nails with a shiny gel-effect finish but also did not blur or blend any of the shades together, which other topcoats can often do.

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
