Oh my, my 250th post, and wow is this a whopper! Firstly, thank you for staying with me, joining in with the madness and laughing along the way. I have made some brilliant friends through this blog and my polish obsession, and long may it stay that way J
We’re also verrrrry close to 200 Followers on the blog, and when we get there, there will be another Giveaway … and it might have something quite special in it J
A few weeks ago, the lovely Elizabeth Stern remarked that my next landmark post should be about my purple collection. I gasped. Yes, it was a great idea, but did she have any idea the amount of effort that would take ? of course she did lol! So here, just for you, are my purplishes (purple + polish = purplish). Unlike the other stash posts, I am not splitting this into categories. There are NO purplishes that have been bought just for art purposes. Oh and also, please bear in mind that the lilacs live separately, so this is just “purples” and you won’t see Planks A Lot, or Parlez Vous OPI in this post.
