This week’s Makeup Wars Challenge is to feature our favorite purple nail polish. Everyone has a favorite nail polish color and for me, it’s always been purple. So this was a challenge for me in the sense that I have alot of purples to choose from! Read on for more…

CHANEL Provocation swatch

Ultimately, the purple I chose for my favorite comes from CHANEL. I unabashedly love CHANEL nail polishes. The formula is superb and what I love, especially on darker shades, is the high gloss finish. So shiny you almost don’t need a top coat. The color that I kept going back to for “favorite” is CHANEL Provocation. I bought it at last year’s Fashion’s Night Out; Provocation is a gorgeous deep plum cream formula with excellent pigmentation. You could get by with one coat, however I always do two. If you love purple nail polishes, this is one you need in your collection–especially with Fall coming up. For a sophisticated mani-pedi combo, pair with Lilis from the Summer Collection (review).


Trying to pick one favorite purple nail polish is like asking me to pick a favorite child–I just can’t. But runners up for me are: NARS Fury from the new Fall Collection (review), Estee Lauder Black Plum, from the Beyond Black Collection (review), Zoya Monica, another excellent plum cream and Dior 783 Shadow, which has a red glitter in it. All excellent choices, but edged out by Provocation.
