NOTD: Velvet Goth 'Amethyst'

I picked up 'Amethyst' from Models Own's recent Velvet Goth collection in Superdrug a couple of days ago. I have to admit to being drawn in by the beautiful velvet lids in coordinating colours to the polishes within, and I did have a tough time deciding between this and the deep green of 'Absinthe', but in the end purple won out for me! The photos below show two coats over a base coat of Nail Envy (as always); you could definitely get away with one coat but I chose to apply two for extra depth of colour. 'Amethyst' is a beautiful deep, inky purple with micro-glitter and small round glitter, which dries to a semi-matte finish which looks quite unusual. I added a top coat for a glossy finish which I found really brought out the sparkles, but I love how it looks matte as well - the first photos show the polish matte, and the second show it with top coat, although none of them really do justice to how beautiful this polish is!

  2. It's a beautiful shade, very rich and plumy. I really like almost all of the Velvet Goth collection but I absolutely love Absinthe - there's something about the shade that's a bit unusual. Xx

    1. It's beautiful, the photos really don't do it justice. It's slightly rough to touch but not like a textured polish, more just like glitter. In my Superdrug they had little swatches out so it might be worth popping in to see if you can have a stroke ;) xo
