Does It Stamp? ~ Violets!

Hello Dahlings!
This week we'll be looking at what violet polishes I have that can be stamped with!
A word about color names. I was an art design major in college 25 years ago & have worked in various art & design related jobs since then. I learned the color one gets from combining red & blue is called Violet. A violet that leans more towards red is often labeled purple rather than red-violet & a violet that leans towards blue is usually labeled blue-violet. I did some web searches today to support this long ago learned info for this post & was reminded of something important: life is subjective & so is color! Depending on the type of site I was on (art vs. design vs. science) several of the color wheels I found listed purple as the result of combining red & blue. My lil old inky brain says this is wrong, but a generation has passed since I 1st learned color theory & obviously some things have changed or at least shifted a bit. I can live with this, but you'll just have to deal with my using the terms I'm most comfy with when talking about color on my blog.
On to da polish...
