So, just looking at this wheel and not considering any other blue violet cremes that snuck onto blue or violet wheels or that I've bought but have yet to swatch, I see some room for de-duping. I could let go of 1, 7, 8, 11, 14, 16, and 19. Or maybe it would be 1, 2, 10, 11, 14, 16, and 18. But for right now, none of them are going.


  1. The Barry M and Models Own caught my eye right away.
    Those two are gorgeous. Definitely going on the lemming list!

  2. Now, that's a color group I love so much - cannot even choose here...!

  3. Your nail wheel posts are so dangerous for me. No matter the color, I always find a few to start searching for!

  4. Wow, Barry M Indigo is gorgeous!

  5. One of my all time favorite here!

  6. OMG, this is the right wheel for me, I want all of them! :-) :-)


Thank you for reading and commenting! I greatly appreciate knowing I'm not just talking to myself here. :)
