Wheels Y2, Z2, and A3: Purple Cremes

Welcome once again to Nail Wheel Wednesday, also known as "Hi, I'm a Crazy Person". Today I've got purple cremes: lilacs and plums and vampies and such. I think a mauve or two might have snuck in as well. This isn't even all my purple cremes: you may remember wheels C2 and D2, and before them A2 and B2, and before them wheel F (which I really need to re-photograph now that I've gotten better at using my camera), and even farther back, the first episode of this series, wheel A. Purple is my favorite color, but even I can see this is excessive. If I win the lottery (I suppose I need to start playing as a first step), I will have to hire a dupe-documenting assistant to help me weed out my stash.

In addition to the dupe-documenting assistant; I need to hire someone to follow me around the store saying "no, you have one just like that already".

  2. You have an extraordinary amount of gorgeous purples.

    I love the dupe-documenting assistant idea lol I can just see you reaching for a bottle and your assistant jumping out from behind the display screaming DUPE ALERT DUPE ALERT.

  3. Oh please if you win (start playing) can I be your "no, you already have it" assistant? But knowing me (and my love for polish) I'm afraid I won't be a good choice (I can figure myself saying just "oh it's so pretty, you must buy it!") :-)
    BTW I love purple and these are the "Hi I have so many amazing polishes" Wednesday!

  4. Is it odd that the thing that facinated me the most about this post (besides you having so many dark purple dupes!) is that you actually have a bottle that has some usage? (Milani Grape one!) With your stash, this must be a favourite to have a dent in it with so many other pretties to choose from!

  5. You have an amazing collection of purples!
    That is hilarious, I don't think a dupe assistant would be much good to me. I would argue there would be something slightly different thus the need to keep them all. I can see it now * No, that one is a shade lighter, that one a shade darker. I need all those bottles of the same color for back ups. What if they stop making that color or we go into nuclear fallout. I NEED them*
    I can imagine it wouldn't be pretty for me.

  7. Those dark purple creams are amazing! And a dupe assistant would be very useful sometimes, haha.

  8. So many pretty purples! Is there really such a thing as too many purple polishes?

  9. Purples are the best! I love all of these. :)

  10. Be still my heart! I have a real weakness for these colors. Even though my collection is very modest, I've already given away 3 polished I bought because I couldn't resist the pull of the color because they turned out to be dupes or near-dupes.

  11. Your collection puts mine to shame! lol
