Ink Soak-Off Gel Polish Purple Swatches
Alter Ego is a light blue/grey-ish purple with a cream finish. I would say this has a very periwinkle feel to it. It went on a bit thin, so I applied three coats to get the coverage that you see here. The swatch stick that I created for this color is a couple years old and now has a brown-ish tint to it. That’s an indication that this color may fade with exposure to sunlight, though I haven’t conducted an official fade test to confirm.
Scarlet Empress is a beautiful shimmery light purple. It looks like it has some pink-ish tones when it’s next to these other purples, but it’s a pretty classic lilac shade. Ink does these shimmery finishes so well. This polish came out a little sheer, so I applied three coats for better coverage.
Capitvate is indeed a very captivating glittery dark purple with blue tones. It has scattered flecks of blue in it that make it really pop. I also applied three coats of this color for best coverage.
Vivid Violet doesn’t look anything like the label on the bottle, and doesn’t appear very vivid to me. It’s is a very vampy, dark reddish purple that appears dark burgundy in some lights. This color was opaque in just two coats and applied nicely, but just wasn’t the shade I was anticipating to come out of the bottle!
