Swatch // Essie All Access Pass for Alphabet Nails "A"
Hey hey! Happy Tuesday! :) Today I have some quick swatches to share with you as part of a new linkup I'm taking part in where me and a few other bloggers are swatching polish for every colour of the alphabet! Not the most original series, I know at least 3 other bloggers doing similar things outside of our group, but it's still a fun challenge I think!
I'm looking forward to digging through my polishes to see what I have for each letter, though already from looking for the first few letters I am kicking myself for not keeping a spreadsheet up-to-date with all my polish names... Picking them all up and flipping them over till I find a winner is a pain! Haha. Oh well.
Enough chit chat! Today I'm swatching Essie All Access Pass which is my fill for 'A'!
All Access Pass is a really lovely indigo-violet creme from Essie's 2015 Neons Collection.
The colour on this one is stunning, however my one complaint is it was a pain in the ass to apply. :( The first coat was a streaky mess (lovingly referred to by my mom as "nails that a kindergarten student painted") and though it evened out with a second coat it was still difficult to spread around the nail. I'm hoping adding some thinner to it will clear the issues up, but if not I may have to put this in the "pretty but never using again" pile. Boo!
Ah well. Take a look at the other polish and art in the linkup below, and then let me know what you think!
Thanks for visiting! xx
