Heidi Montag's Purple Nail Polish

Trend Alert: Vixen Violet Nail Varnish

I just picked up an old issue of one of my favorite tabloids and noticed that Heidi Montag was wearing purple nail polish while frolicking on the beach with Spencer.

Since the girls of The Hills are huge trendsetters, this means that purple polish is likely making its way into the world right about now. Below are a select couple of cool violet nail varnishes.

Bermuda Shorts ($7) is part of the Essie Summer Neon Collection. This shiny bright purple is flirty, fun, and h-o-t!

To check out a lighter and shimmery purple nail polish,


Chanel Robertson Collection Nail Polish in Rodeo Drive comes packaged together in a limited-edition set for $25 for all four shades. The polishes are miniature-sized and are named after famous Los Angeles shopping streets — and as The Hills girls will tell you, Rodeo Drive is the place to be.

I might go looking for one of these — I tried buying a purple polish a couple of weeks ago (who knew I was trendy??) but the actual color is way more magenta than what I was going for.

I purchased the neon collection from Essie. Some of the colours are a little hard to work with but the final result makes it worth it.

I'm really not a fan of Heidi, but I like purple nail polish. She sure isn't the only person wearing it these days and I'm definitely not going to stop wearing it just because of this photo.

as much as I hate to admit this, I actually like the color even if it is on her

I guess I'm just not cool because Heidi Montag is the antithesis of style,fashion,cool,class,etc. etc. etc. Doesn't mean I won't use purple nail polish. It just means Heidi is disgusting.

I was so excited to get that Essie polish but I was underwhelmed. It's a lot darker and less fun than the bottle lets on, and it's kind of more magenta than purple. I do love purple nails, but I was wearing Essie's Looking For Love from a few collections ago that I picked up at Ulta, and I liked it much better. After four coats, it was light and slightly shimmery but still bright and purple enough. I would recommend that over Bermuda Shorts.

I absolutely LOVE purple polish! Purple is my favorite color and Essie's Bermuda Shorts is my favorite polish shade of the summer. I'd love to pick up a violet similar to that Chanel one too. So pretty.

Wow - I'm a trendsetter, my wedding was all shades of purple 25 years ago and I've been wearing purple nails ever since. PS - Heidi is so overrated anything she does makes me wanna stop doing it.

purple was my favorite color nail polish 6 years ago ... so much so that my mom and sis would make fun of me for not being adventurous enough to try another color when we went to the salon ... so i don't wear it anymore. i did try to twist it up by wearing dark purple, light purple, purple sheers, purple frost, purple shimmer, irridescent purples ... so yeh, it was pretty ridiclous. it just looks so good with my skin tone and I LOVE PURPLE!!!!!!! LOL

I don't know why some people are NOT going to wear the polish because of her? So what if she does? Why not do what YOU like! Novel thought.

So not to sound like a hater, but because of Miss Montag I may throw the purple nail polish trend to the wayside. I started wearing purple nail polish early spring/ summer when I saw Chanel came out with it and I found it the only neon trend I was brave enough to wear on my fingers. It'll be sad having to give it up, I got so many compliments. :-*(

I don't care what Heidi does, but as far as bright colored nail polish bright fuchsia and violet are the craziest I go, and I love the looks of it with my skintone.

If Heidi's wearing it it's automatically tacky in my book.

I nearly always wear purple nail polish if I do wear it. Rimmel does some fab colours. So, I'm ahead of the Hills! :)

I was so excited. I was at Walmart the other day and I found a shade of purple polish that looked a lot like the Essie one except it was shimmery. It was only $1 too. I haven't worn it yet, but I think I want to paint my toenails that color today.
