NYX Girls nail polish in Purple Noir (“noir” – French for black) is the ultimate gothic purple for me, and I like it! People always immediately think you’re wearing black nail polish until the sun or light hits it. The color is a deep, mysteriously dark, rich purple and it is easy to apply smoothly. This shade has finely milled shimmer in it that’s very subtle. Sorry I messed up my top coat a bit here and I didn’t clear out the edges of my cuticles enough, we were about to bring my brother to school and my family was on their way to the car already (nails in a rush!). I actually painted some of the nails yesterday but messed some of them up last night so I had to reapply this morning…in a rush. I applied an Orly base coat, 2 thin coats of Purple Noir, then an Orly topcoat.
I purchased Purple Noir for Php 180.00 at the Rockwell Summer Solstice Bazaar here in Manila from Get Sophisticated’s Booth. Check out their link, they now ship popular cosmetic brands internationally as well. Hooray for Asians! I was assisted by a warm and friendly mother-daughter tandem.
