Review: e.l.f. Purple Pleaser Nail Polish

Hello kittens :)

I'm getting a bit slack with my polish reviews, but the lovely Maxime asked me to review this for her which gave me a kick up the derrière. Alas, here we are.


e.l.f. sayThis colour-lock formula with chip resistant shield gives long lasting nail color with high shine. Key nutrients give nails that natural shine, infused with Vitamin E for stronger, healthier nails. Our formula is FREE of: Toluene, Formaldehyde, and Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP). 

I say: I've not been disappointed with e.l.f. polishes yet, and this is another gem. Purple Pleaser was part of the set of new Autumnal colours that was released a few weeks ago. It's a creme formula so there is no shimmer/glitter etc. It's a lovely pink-berry-purple shade - not too light, not too dark. I love that e.l.f. polishes are 'Big 3' free so you're not putting a bunch of nasty chemicals on your nails.


e.l.f. say: The aerodynamic bristle design glides color on flawlessly, while the quick dry formula gives perfect application every time.

I say: e.l.f. polishes have standard sized brushes. They're not the best but they're also not the worst I've ever used. I found that I needed just two thin coats to achieve opacity, both of which dried quickly leaving a gorgeous glossy finish. I had this polish on for about 4 days before I saw any tip wear.

Price: £1.50
Size: 10ml
Available from: e.l.f.

Product: 9/10
Packaging: 10/10
Price: 10/10

  1. oh I really like this one, it's definitely going on my ELF wishlist, thank you for the NOTD!

  2. I've been tempted by E.L.F polishes for ages now, but hadn't seen that much by way of this post is fabulous for me (though could prove expensive!)

  3. I haven't tried any e.l.f. varnishes but this color looks really pretty! I definitely wanna try it :)

  4. Small Town Gal - You're welcome xx

    Nihrida - It is :) xx

    Laura - Glad it has proved useful. Haha it no doubt will. It seems so cheap but before you know it, you've spent a small fortune! xx

    Aimee - They're definitely worth trying :) xx

  5. Im a bit unsure whether to buy this colour or not because the colour that you have shown of 'Purple Pleaser' is nothing like the colour that is shown on the ELF website!
    Is that definitely the right colour name?
    If you could get back to me soon that would be great... Thanks ^_^

  6. Hi Tamiinu_x! I find that the elf swatches on their website rarely match their products and I've found this especially with lipsticks and nail polishes. This is definitely Purple Pleaser! I definitely recommend searching Google for specific swatches of elf products so you know what you're getting. Hope that helps xx
