China Glaze Wicked Collection: Bizarre Blurple

Bizarre Blurple is the second polish I got from China Glaze's 2012 Halloween Collection.  It's a perfectly balanced indigo, right between blue and purple, hence the name.  It's dark but never appears black, is opaque in two effortless coats, and fairly shiny before top coat.  The name brought back a memory--the first time I heard the neologism "blurple" wasn't on a nail polish blog, but from a Marine recruiter describing the custom shade he'd had his personal Jeep painted. :)  All swatches are two coats with no topcoat.

The Wicked Collection is available now at Sally Beauty Supply (online and in-store) and at most e-tailers.
