It’s not just that I didn’t feel that pure black nail polish was the best colour for my skin tone. It’s also the fact that I didn’t want to be wearing the exact same shade that everyone else was – BLACK.
I couldn’t find a colour that was different so I decided to make it myself. My colour is a purple-black rather than a true black. In the sunlight or under office lights, you can tell that it’s really purple, but otherwise it looks black.
I just bought a cheap black nail polish at the drugstore and mixed it into a purple nail polish I already had. Is that a bad thing? I don’t know. What I do know is that it’s the perfect colour and everyone asks me where I got it and what brand it is.
I just say, “I don’t know, it’s a brand that’s not very popular.”
