Purple is a color commonly associated with royalty, so it’s the perfect color to wear while you’re reading about Marie Antoinette and rewatching Bridgerton.

8. Magenta Stiletto Press-On Nails
Magenta is perfectly in between blue and red, and these magenta press-on nails look perfectly stunning. Especially because we’ve already tipped over a jar of polish three times this week.
9. Swirls and Hearts
Apart, they’re pretty swirls. Together, they form a heart. There’s probably a life lesson in there.
10. Lavender Tips
Clean, classy, and lightly lavender. All things that could describe your kitchen if you washed your dishes every once and a while.
11. Deep Purple Marble Nails
Bezos may be going to space, but we’ll be sending him off with these galaxy nails. Possibly one very specific nail.
12. Purple Heart Nails
Red hearts are for lovers. Purple hearts are for those that added blue. Design by Laney.
13. Purple Ombre Nails
Decisions can be hard, so don’t make any and do a full purple ombré by using The GelBottle in Marilyn, Bellflower, Flax, and Madam. Ok, but you do need to go right or left at the end of this street.
14. Purple Nails With Letters
Send a subtle message to the world by adding some gothic lettering to your purple nails. And then get a billboard to actually get the message out because door-to-door canvassing is exhausting.
15. Holographic Nails
These holographic nails are here just in time for the My Little Pony movie coming out this year. What do you mean it won’t be on Netflix?
16. Purple Flames
Hot Wheels have been around for over 50 years, but we’ve never seen flames with a color combo this gorgeous. To be fair, we were more into LEGOs.
