American Eagle: Purple

Hey y'all and Happy Monday! Today was my first day of college and I survived! It wasn't bad at all, and my schedule is pretty good, too.
I thought I would show y'all the other polish I picked up from American Eagle. Again, these don't have names, so this is just going to be called purple. This is one of my favorite shades of purple because it's kinda eggplant colored. I love dark purples like that! I tried to capture the shimmer/sparkle in this, so I hope y'all will be able to see that. Take a look!

These polishes are pretty pigmented and the formula rocks! I only used two coats for this, but one was almost enough. The only problem I've found with this is the staining. Y'all most definitely want to wear a base coat with this. I also think the price is a little ridiculous, but at least the great formula makes up for it.
Have y'all tried American Eagle polishes? What's your take on them? How do y'all like this color? What's your favorite shade of purple? Let me know!
Thanks for reading & I'll talk to y'all soon. :)

From looking at the pictures you posted of both AE polishes, they do look VERY pigmented! Surprising! I agree that the cost is a little much, but I might have to look for these! Nice deep, winter colors.

Btw-your nails are painted so perfectly! I always end up with mess-ups using dark colors!

I'm so in love with dark purples/blues lately. I picked up Ulta Underground and OPI Ink today, I bet you'd love those 2 dark blues!

Glad you had a good first day of college! I can't really say I have a favorite purple because I seem to be drawn to them all. ;p

I hate the polishes that don't have names haha. One of the great things about polishes are their funky names, but I do love this polish. I am glad to hear that your first day of college went well!

Yay glad college went well! Its only going to get more and more fun!!

This colour is such a pretty purple, almost looks blue at first glance. I've never tried this brand because its crazy expensive here but after your good reccomendations maybe i may try a bottle. Hmm my favorite purple.... I dont think i really have a favorite purple polish ohh except for my new ciate which is a pretty dark but bright purple

Lol

I like how dark it is.

BeautyBehaved- Thank you! Yes! I'm looking forward to the day when I know where everything is and I'm a little more secure and settled. :)

Eat.Sleep.Polish.- I hope you get some! I'd love to see other colors! Aw, thank you! You're so sweet. For some reason, I do better when applying dark colors. I have no idea why, because it seems like it would be the other way around. :)

Emily- Me too! Oh I definitely want to see those! I'll be looking out for the posts on those polishes. :)

OliviasNailArt- I want to say around $5. I got one for $3.95 because it was on sale. But I think around $5. I would still get one or two just to try, because they're great little polishes! :)

Kay- Thank you! I'm drawn to almost all purples, too. It's weird! But I think these deep, dark ones are my favorite. :)

imfeelingnail-venturous- I totally agree. It's always a let down when a polish doesn't have a name. And I can't come up with a good name for it so I just end up calling it purple. haha. Thank you! :)

Audrey L.- Thanks! I'm sorry they're so expensive for you! Maybe you can splurge sometime. I so want a Ciate polish. Yours sounds gorgeous! :)

Nail Nerd- Thank you! They are really pretty polishes! Check them out if you can. :)

beauxs mom- Thank you! I'm always relieved when the first day is over, too. It just helps you breathe a little easier. I agree, these need names! :)

Sandra- Me too! Perfect for fall. :)
