Pepe's Purple Passion

Good afternoon, dear readers!

I have been pretty busy these past few days so I apologize for my lack of posts.

Today's swatch is of the lovely O.P.I's Pepe's Purple Passion, from their Christmas Muppet line.  I picked this up a little while back in the clearance section of a salon, and when I brought it home I looked online to see reviews.  I was a bit worried as it seems like several people have had problems with this polish, with it separating, having a bad formula, being gloopey...etc..  Thankfully, I guess I got a really good bottle of it, because I thought it was fantastic, and it is now one of my favourite polishes! :D

Here are some photos:

Now here it is with that gold top coat I made:

And here it is with Essie As Gold as it Gets over top:

YAY!!!  I love it! :D  I think it looks fantastic with the gold polishes overtop, but still amazingly lovely without any additions.  What do you think?  :D


  1. I passed on this polish even though I loved it in the bottle. I really love it with that top coat you made!

  2. I have this polish too, and I also love it! The only problem that I've had is that my bottle is very top-coat-hungry. Two coats of Seche Vite and it's still not smooth! Beautiful polish though :)

  3. it looks gorgeous on ur nails esp with the gold pieces over it, it just look stunning!!

  4. Awesome with the topper.

  5. Beautiful! Aw, Ash! I love your top coat!!

  6. The color itself is so pretty, but with the top coat it becomes oh so fun!
    Thanks for the sweet comment on G&G; would you like to follow each other? Let me know and I'll be sure to follow you back :)


  7. The combo reminds me of an amped up Zoya Neeka, which is a favorite of mine. Needless to say, I think this is beautiful :)

  8. It's like a piece of Christmas with the gold on it LOL - nice both ways, I agree!

  9. gorgeous polish, even better with the gold topcoats

  10. I like your blog, I like your style, everything is fine!

  11. Gorgeous vampy shade! Looks amazing with As Gold as it Gets on top!

  12. Looks amazing with your gold top coat!

  13. gorgeous nails! love it<3
    checkout mine if you have a chance dear thankyou so much:)

  14. Purple has been my definite colour of the month this June, and I have to say that this rich burgundy infused shade is calling my name something fierce. It's so, so "me" and I know I'd wear it long after I've moved onto my next colour flavour of the month, so I really may have to try and find someone in the area who sells OPI (I live in a fairly small town) or who could bring it in.

    Wishing you an awesome, beautiful week ahead!!!
