Do you ever buy nail polish, love it in the store and then forget about it once you get home? That happens to me all the time. When I actually buy in a brick and mortar store these days I tend to buy a few polishes at a time, especially when it comes to Sinful Colors. That is exactly what happened with Acapella Ella. I rushed out at the beginning of 2018 to purchase all the new core colors that were released and then let them sit on my desk for months. I actually swatched Acapella Ella last June but am just getting around to sharing it on my blog now. So I hope you enjoy this little blast from the past with me for today's post.
Acapella Ella is a pale blue creme nail polish. In fact, you could almost say it's a blueish tinted white with how pale it is. A great color to use as a base for nail art in my opinion.
The formula is what I have pretty much come to expect from Sinful Colors. The first coat applied nicely, but not perfectly. The opacity is nice but I did have a few streaks. Thankfully they self-level and are gone when the polish dries.
The second coat applied much nicer with no streaking and even coverage allowing for full opacity. My photos are shown as two coats plus glossy topcoat.
For me, this polish is a nice pallet cleanser from all the holos and flakies that I tend to reach for. I've already mentioned I think it would make a great base for nail art. (Which I need to get back to doing.) I also think that even though I'd consider this a pastel color and wear them primarily in the spring, this color transitions well into the summer months also.
What are your thoughts on pale colors like this? Do you think it needs a little shimmer to spice it up or is just fine as it is? Let me know in the comments and as always Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
