Essie Adore-A-Ball | Swatches & Review!
As I go through some of these really neutral shades, you'll see exactly how close a lot of these colors really are.
Yesterday I showed you Ballet Slippers, and I mentioned how a lot of Essie's line is very similar to that color. This is an example of that.
Adore-A-Ball is a creamy off white with a pink tint to it. Compared to Ballet Slippers, this has a slightly less beige tone to it. But it's very slight. Slight enough to make no difference but a huge difference at the same time.
Although I don't think a normal person needs this many shades of bridal off white cremes, the perfect shade can sometimes be hard to find, depending on your skintone and such. For me, that's the virtue of a brand having so many different shades of off white.
Formula wise, Adore-A-Ball is slightly less jelly-like than Ballet Slippers was, but still has a sheer and almost squishy look to the polish when dry. The polish is fully opaque in 4 coats, but again just like Ballet Slippers, you can get two coats of a decent color coverage with clean looking nails.
Essie polishes are available at drugstores and retail for between $8 and $9 in the US.
