Ohh bank holiday Monday - we meet again. I know that for a lot of you today will be a jammy day off work and you will most likely spend it getting up to all sorts with your nearest and dearest. But because I'm in a long distance relationship, bank holiday Mondays always mean one thing for me, and that is leaving someone or someone leaving. I hate Sundays for this reason and this time it's just been postponed a day! I will be travelling back down to London this afternoon to return to reality and work on Tuesday. I have had a glorious week with my family up North which I am blessed to have enjoyed, but by the time I get on that train it will just feel like a wrench to be travelling away from my loved ones. If any readers are in long distance relationships I'd love to hear about it in the Comments!
Anyway, today's post is sharing one of my numerous purple nail varnishes. For whatever reason I buy a lot of purple polishes and never end up wearing them, so I'm making an effort to try them all out!
This gorgeous shade is 'Vivid Purple' by Barry M. You should know by now that Barry M is a massive feature in my ridiculous nail varnish collection, and this is one I picked up a couple of years ago when I worked at Boots and ended up buying up most of the Barry M colours we sold!
It's a really beautiful shade and I don't know why I haven't worn it before - I think the photographs show how pretty, glossy and shimmery it is quite well (for once!) It's not the most Spring-suitable shade but its a nice one to wear for work and lasts really well on the nail.
Are you a fan of purple nails? What brands do you recommend?
