The one Lilly made for Ellenore and herself is a dark blue nail polish with shimmers, named River and The Tardis. The personalised polish Lilly made me, is a dusty purple with faint, subtle shimmer, with the adorable name All Purples Eve.
Because my nails kept breaking, I held off swatching All Purples Eve to ensure that my nails were a little longer. I was going to let my nails grow still a little longer, but I couldn't wait any more, so here are the swatches!
While painting my nails yesterday, I was listening a playlist on 8tracks, when The Coolest Girl from A Very Potter Sequel came on. While rocking out to The Coolest Girl, for some unknown reason, I was overcome with the thought that it fit All Purples Eve. I love this song so much.
If you haven't seen A Potter Musical yet, you can watch it on Youtube. It's definitely worth a watch, as are the other Starkid productions. :)

The formula on this franken was magic. It was opaque in one coat. In fact, in the pictures I'm wearing one coat, even though I usually use two. The consistency was also good: not runny, not goopy.
And what really clinched it for me, was that All Purples Eve dried really fast. After about 2 minutes, it was dry! Completely surprised (and of course, pleased) me.
It dried to a satin finish, so I added the Essence Better Than Gel Nails topcoat (which might be my new favourite topcoat) to get a beautiful shine.
Thank you again, Lilly! You did an amazing job on this nail polish.
Lots of ♥,
