Swatch: Accesorize - Aztec Polish



This is primarily a purple duo chrome, which does need two or three coats in order to build up an opaque nail coverage.

I like this one, it seems to be a polish similar in colour to the oil on water effect you sometimes see.

The talented Helly managed to take some more colour accurate photos here, if your interested
