Confession. I am a fan of the Twilight movies. Nerd alert.
I was planning to see Breaking Dawn Part 2 with a friend and I said "Hey, why not wear my new Breaking Dawn polishes to the movie just to make this extra nerdy!"
I did my nails the day before I was supposed to go to the movie.
I couldn't pick which one I wanted to wear so I decided to wear all four. Hooray for skittle manis!
But then something annoying happened. They all started chipping and wearing away after just 4 hours of wear!
I can't believe how crappy the weartime was on these. Essence polishes are usually so great and I always get great wear from them, but whatever they did with these ones is not good.
All of my nails were crap after just a few hours and I ended up changing the manicure before I went to the movie. Bummer.
It's too bad they sucked for me. The colors are nice. I want to like them. But I can't.
I was going to do full swatches of these but they made me too mad so here are some one-finger swatches.
Essence - Alice Had A Vision - Again
This one is my favorite color of the bunch, I love the deep shade with all the purple glittery flakes.
Two coats and it covers well!
Essence - Jacob's Protection
This is the blue version of the first polish. Again, covers in two coats which is great for such a dark polish.
Essence - Edward's Love
This one is really pretty, black with silvery flake glitter. Hard to capture. Again, 2 coats.
Essence - A Piece of Forever
This is a warm yellow gold that is sadly a bit streaky. This shade of gold is not my favorite, not something I'd usually reach for.
This one did seem to last the best of the four so if you like it, it might be decent!
I don't usually have any issues with polishes not lasting so this sucks.
I'll try one again sometime to see if my results are any different.
