Makeup Wars shares favorite purple nail polishes

I was thrilled when Makeup Wars chose favorite purple nail polishes for this week’s topic. I love purple polish. It’s one of my very favorites to buy and wear. I have a lot that I could have chosen but I decided to concentrate on just one that I think is fun, pretty and wore amazingly well for more than 10 days.


Pretty Serious Cosmetics currently deals primarily in in fun, yet elegant nail polish. Our polishes are professionally manufactured in Australia, and are Big 3 free, formaldehyde free, cruelty free and vegan friendly.






Pretty Serious is an Australian company that now sells products in many online boutiques. In the US it’s available at Llarowe but they also ship worldwide from Oz. I went on a binge and bought quite a few of the polishes – I’m in love with them all. Atomic Brain is one that’s still available and is the best purple. I loved wearing it and I got a ton of compliments on it.pretty serious outer space

Atomic Brain, whose name I love, came from the collection “They Came From Beyond Space” and I own all three of the shades in the collection. But we’re talking purple and Atomic Brain is purple delight.¬† “Harness the atomic power of this amazing purple foil multichrome!

This is considered a Foil Multichrome Purple. You can see from this site shot that there are different shades that show through in different lights. I mostly saw different tones of purple metallic that made me smile constantly.

When I wear polish like this I like to move my hands around so I can see the colors come out – I’m easily amused! Atomic Brain doesn’t just amuse me though, it delights me and I’m naming it my favorite purple. — Marcia
