Arissa Rockin’ Amethyst

Arissa Rockin AmethystAfter spending yesterday morning at the DMV I decided to check out the Family Dollar that was right next door. I had never been to a Family Dollar before, but I figured, they must have nail polish, right!?

Well, I was right. I spotted Rockin’ Amethyst (for only $2) and had to have it! It is a gorgeous blurple jelly with flaky purple/blue glitter. My pictures really don’t do this polish justice, in the sun the glitter flashes both purple and blue. It is seriously SO pretty! And a great thing about this color is that it never looks black, even in indoor lighting.

When I picked it up I was worried be a dupe of LA Colors Amethyst, but this polish had much more blue in it and the LA Colors polish lacks the blue flashes from the glitter.

Application was surprisingly good. I don’t expect much from such inexpensive polishes, but this applied great. It is a jelly, so I needed 3 coats. I don’t like the way this bottle looks, but I love the handle because it’s rubberized like Orly and Chi bottles. The handle just feels good in the hand.

This is a discontinued color, but the Family Dollar where I found it had a ton of bottles of this. If you are a purple shimmer lover like me and want a great polish at an even better price this polish is a definite must have 🙂
