Purple rain, purple raiiiiiin!
If there is a color that you have trouble taming in everyday life, it’s purple. You hesitate to wear it on your clothes, you are reluctant to wear it on your lips and nails and you prefer its easier to wear cousins… burgundy red or black red. Yes, purple is pretty, but how much do you need to wear it to be stylish? With some inspiration, your mind might change.
But purple is not to be ignored! In all its shades, whether light or dark, purple is very trendy and contrary to what we may think easily wearable, no matter your skin tone. Whether it’s for a hair color, lipstick or manicure, you definitely don’t have to take purple out of your ideas.
Singer Justine Skye is a perfect example. In fact, she has, for many years, worn purple for her hair color, often accompanied by a plum colored lipstick, which is a shade of purple. And this color has become a bit of a signature and has inspired more than one!
Purple has not yet said its last word. Timeless color, it is creative and refreshing when we tend to lock ourselves in a routine a little too dull with his usual pink polish or the classic red. So, if you can wear purple on your hair, why not think about it to embellish your hands by choosing for your manicure a pretty purple nail polish or a nice nail-art with purple reminders on each nail?
The best way to wear purple without being afraid of overdoing it is of course in the form of nail art. What better way than to tame it at the end of your pretty hands?
And to finish convincing you and inspire you a little more, here are 10 sublime ways to wear purple nail polish that you can be inspired for your next beauty appointment during the manicure stage at your nail artist!

1 – Purple varnish: The dark purple matte varnish
We can occasionally leave aside the glossy version of the purple varnish for a matte purple varnish. We found you a nice inspiration of a purple matte nail polish from the brand OPI. You can find it in beauty stores or on the brand’s websites if you opt for delivery, like Sephora or Amazon, it is also possible to do it in a salon by a professional or at home!
If you are more used to wearing a manicure made with a gel or semi-permanent nail polish, apply your purple gel or semi-permanent nail polish and once dry, you will only need a coat of UV/LED matte top coat on top of the purple to catalyze under the UV lamp to finalize your manicure.
2 – Violet polish: One shade of violet per nail
Another idea to add to the list of purple nail polish inspirations is the cameo of colors, in this case purple. This technique consists of using several shades of purple in order to create a purple gradient with one shade of purple per nail for original nails. Hot, isn’t it?
3 – Purple nails: Purple marble nails
Definition: purple marbled nails. Here again, we play with the shades between dark purple, light purple, a little touch of white and lilac purple to create the marbled purple marbled effect. There are lots of tutorials on YouTube about this nail trend that should be in your “must do manicure” list!
For this purple nail art, it’s best to go to a professional who will use a gel polish for your nails.
