Purple nail polish – Pupa Milano

When I’m in the mood for a dark color, a deep purple is often one of my go to’s :) For today’s swatch, I have one of the new polishes that I recently got: a purple cream by an Italian brand Pupa.

It’s a classic deep aubergine cream without any shimmer. I wish I could tell you the number of the shade, but I lost the sticker from the bottle :( For the same reason I don’t know whether it’s big3free or not. The only description of the Pupa Lasting Color line on the official website is: “A new, ultra-technological and ultra-performing formula for a shiny and intense color in just one stroke. Long lasting. Dries quickly.”

It does dry quickly and it’s well pigmented. If you are careful, it’s possible to get away with just 1 coat. I did 2 coats, but only because I’m used to the 2 coats application. The formula is fine, not running and not too thick. What I don’t like about the polish is its brush, it’s too long, thin and soft for my liking.

The color is rich and winter-y, it’s just like they say – vampy without being too trampy :) It comes out on my nails a bit darker than the color in the bottle. Here I have a comparison swatch of today’s Pupa nail polish with Orly Velvet Rope (ring finger).

That’s all for today, thanks for taking the time to stop by! :)

    They have the same exact color in their gel line and the brush is a little wide and short.
