It’s Purple Week! Lavender Shimmer

This week is Purple Week here at NeverTooMuchGlitter! I’ve been mixing a lot of lavenders and purples this weekend and I wanted to share them with you all at once!

Purple is one of the easiest colors to franken: red and blue. Lavender is red, blue and white. An amazing variety of colors can be made from these three colors- and unlike some other colors like orange or yellow, purple is flattering on most everyone.


For today, I made a shimmering lavender out of 5 drops China Glaze Red Curl Girl, a red shimmer with red glassy flecks, and 10 drops China Glaze Blue Island Iced Tea, a light blue shimmer. I then added a couple drops of crème white to lighten the color as I wanted a pale lavender. It’s a nice springtime color, but I decided to jazz it up a little by making striped purple tips and adding some silver decals. The camera didn’t pick up the double French tips well, but they were fairly noticeable in real life.



These are pretty simple, but I’m enjoying them a lot. Stay tuned for a LOT more purple this week!
