Happy Birthday Prince!

My "Purple Rain" Manicure

Today is the day that Prince Rogers Nelson was born and so was my love for him and his music.

So of course I did a special mani for my baby.

I used Catrice "Poison me, poison you!", which I acquired recently in an international swap and China Glaze Millennium.
















I used two coats of Catrice and two coats of the Millennium.  I then topped the Millennium with a  coat of Orly Bonder so that I did not get drag when I painted the symbol.

Then topped them all with 1 coat of Poshe Fast drying top coat.

















Catrice is a deep yet bright eggplant purple  with micro fine blue and red shimmer.  It's so nice,  and applied nicely and was opaque in 1 coat, but I did two.

I like the fact that its a dark purple, but can never be mistaken for black. Very regal. Very Prince-like...LOL

I Love Prince!

I love your mani for this! Now if only Konad could come up with a plate that had this symbol... Seriously someone should start making licensed plates... sports teams, movies... music... food (yes, I'd love a burger and fries as a stamp)... okay, I'm getting carried away.

Jackie S. said...

@ABOP- That is a great idea, I would buy a prince symbol, Yankee logo etc. Especially the burgers and fries! YUM!

They should have called it "Purple Rain"!!! Let's call it that way for the occasion (purple suits you really well by the way) - I dig the Love symbol on your nail! I love it when mani are related to the music we love. <3

@ Rebecca- Nice choice! My favorite changes all the time, I guess my all time favorite is "If I was your girlfriend"

Love that dedication mani. You nailed it with saying the color is regal. I'm waiting for this polish to arrive in a recent international swap I did, can't wait.

What a great tribute to Prince! I love his music too. Such a talent! That's such a gorgeous purple (totally in love!) and it's so nice to see a dark purple that doesn't look black. :D
