Picks for the Best Pink and Purple Polishes

From left to right: Madison Ave-Hue, Go Ginza, Playdate, Minimalistic, Miami Nice, Bond With Whomever & Mod Square
As a kid, I was always a nail biter. Over the past year and a half I've gotten over the habit when I discovered an inexpensive local nail place in Lewisburg and just kept getting them done to avoid biting them. The other day I noticed that my stash of pinks and purple colors has grown into such a collection that my mother considered it "a necessity for me" when I bought another one over break at Target. As you can see, I am a huge fan of the Essie color variety, with OPI top and base coats (the bigger brush works well for a smooth finish). Some of my favs: 

Madison Ave-hue ◌ A great deep pink color for the warmer months (or Valentine's Day). 
Go Ginza ◌‬ Very pretty lilac that's perfect for Easter and looks especially great with a tan- a go to for spring.                                                                           

Playdate ◌‬ If you are feeling particularly bold, this is a great color - one of my favorites for a pedicure.                                                                                                               
Minimalistic ◌‬ After using up Fiji (a cult favorite) I came across this new one at Target. If I could only wear one color for the rest of my life, this would be it. 

Miami Nice ◌‬ I wrote about this previously, but this has been a holy grail color for me after searching it forever. It's got a great blue undertone and is a nice pick me up in the winter months. 

Bond With Whomever ◌‬ Very similar to Go Ginza, but with a lot of sparkle and a nice in between of pink and purple. 

Mod Square ◌‬ A great all around hot pink polish color. 
Happy Monday! Hope you have a great week!
P.S. Happy Birthday Mummy- you don't look a day over 30!
