I got a couple of new nail polishes for Christmas (Thanks hubby!) and I was just itching to try them out. The first one I went for is the blurple color you see here. The shade is from Essie and it is called All Access Pass. In my photo above, it's looking a little more blue than it does in real life. It was a difficult color to photograph accurately. The other shade you see on my ring finger is Revlon's Diamond Texture, which is a really pretty silver glitter polish that I already had.
On my ring finger, I used an Elmer's glue base coat and the rest of my nails got a base of Sally Hansen Insta Dri Base Coat. Two coats of polish went on each nail and then I followed it up on all of them with NYC In a New York Minute polish in Grand Central Station as a top coat.
I think this manicure turned out really pretty! All Access Pass is a color that I never would have picked out on my own but it was a really unique shade and I ended up liking it more than I thought I would. I already knew I loved the silver glitter. Isn't silver supposed to mean prosperity in the New Year? My mother-in-law always put a piece of silver in her windowsill in New Year's Eve so I'm putting silver on my nails. Happy New Year!
