Throwback Thursday: OPI Pamplona Purple

I'm a very seasonal color polish wearer. I save my vamps and dark colors for fall and winter, and wear my brights and pastels for spring and summer. I pretty much follow this faithfully. It's not because I feel like I have to it, it's really just my polish mood tends to fit the season. That being said, sometimes I want to reach for an all-around color. A color that really doesn't fit a particular season, but could fit them all. This OPI classic purple fits that bill for me. 

Pamplona Purple
 Pamplona Purple is a medium red-toned purple creme.

Collection: Spain Fall 2009

Color: This is the perfect middle of the road purple shade. This isn't too bright or too dark, Pamplona Purple is just right. I also love that this a fun red-violet shade, while still being very classic at the same time. Does that make sense? This is kind of an every woman shade in my opinion. Anyone could pull this color off.

Formula: Great easy and smooth formula. OPI can be hit or miss with me personally as far as formula, but this was a hit. I used 2 coats above.

Price: This can be found in the $8-$9 range. I believe this is part of the core line so it can be found at Ulta and many salons that carry OPI. Also a quick search on the web brings up many results for it.

Overall: I love this purple. This is actually a recent polish in my collection, and I find myself gravitating toward it a lot. The color is perfect for any time of year and it's really a very flattering color. I love Pamplona Purple!

My Rating: 5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
