31DC2013: Day 6 - Violet Nails

Hi there!! I think the prompt just means purple nails cause I'm not sure if I used violet. This is a bit meh, I cut my nails too short (but it's been helpful in terms of daily life) and this probably would've looked better on longer nails, but hey I don't think it's bad, just meh.

I wanted the drips over a textured polish (different textures at once oh la la), the cremes ended up being a bit textured due to that but the glitter smoothed it out a bit. I wanted to do layers of purple (not in a gradient style), but gradients look much better so I added glitter to just the illusion of a kind of gradient. The purples don't get lighter eventually in the pictures but in real life Jo'Mina is darker and it works better.
For this I think more blue should have showed but these are purple nails so it's best this way. Also the blue and purples are a bit too close, maybe I should have put the darkest at the top and lightest at the bottom. And yes the shards still annoy me, I had to pick some off, why can't they stay flat on my nails like happy shards?

Light Purple: Barry M - Prickly Pear
Medium Purple: Illamasqua - Jo'Mina
Dark Purple: OPI - Plum And Get It
Purple Glitter: Butter LONDON - Shambolic
Glitter Topper: Models Own - Freak Out!
Blue: OPI - Get Your Number
I liked Get Your Number better this time, the holographic shimmer in it is so pretty, but the blue is still too dull for my tastes but I can appreciate it more.

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day!! :)
