Wheel C3: Purple Shimmer Assortment

The deeper I get into my wheel swatching project, the less coordinated I'm able to make them. For this Nail Wheel Wednesday, I've got warm purple shimmers, ranging from almost white to dusty plum, a few nearly pink purples, some neons, and a couple of cooler-toned violets.
