Purple Rain is a dark purple, shimmer polish. Disappointingly, the shimmer is not as visible on the nail as it is in the bottle, unless in direct light.

The formula is runny, so I managed to flick the nail polish all over myself during the application (I am not a novice). Having said that it's highly pigmented so you will only need 1-2 coats. It dries semi-matte, so shiny top …

Sexy, dark warm purple. It's expensive but so worth it. And to the reviewer a few posts below me who says she likes it because of Prince: No it's not stupid ;) Prince is LOVE! ????????????????????

I love this polish. It is a gorgeous deep and warm purple with very subtle fine red toned shimmer throughout. The formula is really easy to apply, going on smoothly and not being too runny. I do believe two coats makes for a perfect application though (I never normally only apply one coat of any polsih though, so to each her own- hee hee). The wear is pretty good. Mine will last (on my short …Read more

I received a full size bottle of this nail polish in this colour in one of my month subscription beauty box. I was quite amazed to receive a full size bottle of this nail polish as the bottle itself cost more than what I paid for the subscription box. On another hand, I wasn't too excited because I am not a person who wears nail polish and I am definitely not a fan of purple. So, I …Read more

This is my go-to nail polish. It's my only NARS polish, because it's not really in my price range, but I definitely need to get more of them. I'm just a sucker for purple anything, Purple Rain a dark purple with a red undertone and a very subtle magenta sheen. It's a very sophisticated purple that anyone can wear as long as you like dark colors. And I love that even though …Read more

Beautiful lush sophisticated purple with delicate red particles. High shine, very glossy even without top coat. Not really a purple person but this really is gorgeous and a must have. I have Chanel Taboo, also a deep purple with similar particles/subtle glitter. That is also extremely beautiful in the bottle but which does not translate onto nails - it replicates as a dull dark purple with a …Read more

This is my first NARS polish, and it will not be the last. I probably have over 500 bottles of nail polish in my collection (yes I have a problem), and I don't have one that compares to this polish. First, the formula is phenomenal, richly pigmented and smooth as silk. It could be a one-coater with careful application. The color is absolutely gorgeous and the shine is amazing. It is …Read more

This is the only Nars polish I own, I had to have it, I love Prince and I love purple, I had no choice! It's the most beautiful purple polish I have seen, dark and intense with a hint of shimmer. It applied easily despite the horrid bottle/cap shape and was opaque in 2 coats. Would repurchase.

My only gripe is the blocky handle, I thought it would be a pull-off like other HE polishes. Other than that I call this *shimmering sauce of purple satisfaction*. Now if you are put off by the price try China Glaze Lets Groove for a very close dupe. I have both because my yearning for the "real thing" won out over common sense. *Must have* color in my opinion.

This is a lovely bright royal purple - neither particularly blue nor red tinged but somewhere in the middle (does that make it a true purple?). There are flecks of blue and red shimmer in this polish but the red shimmer seems to be more obvious. It's quite dark but definitely not black - you can always tell that it's purple and thats what I love about this polish. Under a good topcoat …Read more
