New31DC: Day 5 - Purple

Oh my gosh, it is time for my favorite... Day 5 of the New31DC is PURPLE!!  Hooray!  For this day I did a more simple mani, because frankly, when I put on my base color, I couldn't bear to cover it up.  Holy moly this color is beautiful.  And as if it weren't amazing enough, it matches the purple in my hair perfectly! :)

So, this is two coats of OPI Tomorrow Never Dies.  It is just the most wonderful, rich, royal purple.  I think this jumped up to be my favorite purple polish.  It is so hard to photograph though!  It shows up in photos as leaning a bit more blue than it is in real life.  I have included a photo below from my iPhone which is a bit more true to the actual color.

On my accent nail I added a few freehand zigzags with China Glaze Jungle Queen.

Although this picture is a little blurry, that is closer to what the color really looks like.  I think that if you are a purple lover, this is a must-have for your collection!

ETA: A not really color accurate photo of my nails posing with my hair.  A match made in heaven!
