Swatch - Accessorize Sapphire

Happy Friday:) 

A quick swatch for you peeps, before I go and drink my Friday night wine. Sadly tonight I will be drinking it on my own. Usually bf and I have a 'pizza and wine' Friday night, but tonight bf has flown to Germany for a house party (I know, wft?!) and so I am alone. Still, more wine and pizza for me:) 

So here is another polish that has sat, lonely and untried, in my collection for far too long. Which is a shame because Sapphire by Accessorize is great. I picked it up as I was intrigued by both the colour and the fact that it is advertised as a one coat polish (useful for stamping if I ever buy a set lol).

Surprisingly, this did what it said on the tin (so to speak). It was perfect, as you can see, in only 1 coat. It went on easily, no streaks or bubbles, and was pretty glossy to top. These pictures are with 1 layer of topcoat, so you'll have to trust me on that one. 

I really like this colour, although I wouldn't have called it Sapphire, that name brings to my mind a slightly different blue. I actually think this is more of a denim colour, but hey, a rose by any other name and all that eh?!

I'm so enamoured with this polish that it will be travelling with me on my holiday to Peru and Argentina. I've been stressing about not being able to do my nails for 3 weeks (argh) but knowing that this is a one coat wonder, and dries quickly to boot, I'm confident that I'll find 5 minutes somewhere to apply it during my adventure. Yippee! 


  1. Ahh, I think it looks like Denim too - a glossy version of the Barry M perhaps?

  2. Hmmmmm - you know, Denim is actually one of the very few Barry M polishes I don't have, and now I suppose I don't need to:)
