After admiring my purple pearl nail varnish by Mavala this week, it got me wondering what were the Spring nail trends for 2013. And to my surprise a purple metallic look was on the cards for this Spring! Never being one for following trends but just wearing what I like I was a little secretly happy I was "on trend" for once, even if only on my nails. This trend was on the runway at the Erin Fetherston show as she described her collection to be inspired by “Sultry, unfussed glamour.” Here are a few photo's of her collection this Spring.
As you can see in the bottom right photo the model is wearing a gorgeous metallic violet colour which is said to be the Butter London Nail Laquer in the colour Lillibet's Jubilee (find here!). I couldn't believe that my Mavala Shimmer Violet was almost exactly the same, what a great dupe! The Mavala varnish is beautiful but is terrible for chipping, so I'd really recommend having a strong top coat to make it last. I really love how this colour catches the light, the shimmer is just beautiful! And I have to say a big thank you to my friend +Alice C. who bought this for me for Christmas. She's just started her english blog here where you can find great reviews and posts!
