These are the nails I rocked last week. It's a little sloppy (my silver lines are not straight), but they are well-intentioned!
I Google searched purple nails and found my inspiration from there.
I used Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail polish and the accompanying Miracle Gel top coat.
You must MUST use the Miracle Gel top coat with this Miracle Gel polish for best results. Granted, I haven't tried other drugstore gel-esque nail polish, I do vouch for this Sally Hansen pair. The top coat adds a long lasting gel shine that lasts as long as you have it on.
I initially used the purple polish with a regular Sally Hansen top coat, but it was nothing special. The shine disappeared after a day and the purple did not last as long.
When I used the gel polish and the gel top coat together, my nails and their shine lasted so much longer than with the non-gel top coat.
I definitely love this new line from Sally Hansen. If only the polishes were a bit cheaper.
