But two questions ago you said you don't want a purple shirt. Make up your mind! :)

I would say "violet" is "violetti" and "purple" is "purppura".

yeah, though purppura is rarely used and violetti is not so common either. usually we just say "liila"

I agree, especially for a situation like this, most people indeed would say Etsin liilaa/liilanväristä paitaa.
