Swatch: essence the twilight saga breaking dawn LE

Ah…hem. I know there’s TONS of Twilight fans but I must start the post to define myself as; I’m not a fan of Twilight saga. So sorry but I even HATE it. I just really can’t understand why it’s so big, popular and beloved…Well, I dislike pretty many stuff which is widely accepted, so probably this might be the part of it.

Anyway, I’m not a fan of vampire-themed stuff too…BUT THIS LE. Seriously, this essence’s LE TOTALLY caught my eye and I could hardly resist them. Also, unlike Snow White LE, they’re only 4 polishes…alright why not grabbing them all? :P So that’s why I have all 4 polishes here, and decided to show the swatches of all these!!


a piece of forever

A piece of forever is a warm metallic gold with subtle silver glass flecks. Because it’s really opaque and metallic, it leaves pretty much of brushstrokes…though formula it self is not bad, dries fast, fully covered by two coats but here I did three. Not very interesting, but still nice warm gold…fortunately I didn’t have in my stash :D

edward’s love

Edward’s love is a black packed with silver and multicolored glass flecks. This one was very hard to capture, that mostly silver flecks appear very strong but not multicolored one. It’s clearly there IRL! Also looks bit griddy and rough but actually it’s not; flecks can be completely smoothened with one tice coat of topcoat. Full coverage with two coats but better for three.

Alice had a vision - again is dark purple jelly with rich amount of teal/blue/purple glass flecks. I’m not a great fan of purple but I’m so in love with this one…so smooth, so juicy and squishy, not too strong but very deep! I love the color on the nail better than in the bottle, now I’m thinking probably I need spare bottle :P Good with two coats, but here is three coats.

jacob’s protection

Jacob’s protection is black jelly packed with tons of blue/green/multicolored glass flecks. Yes, you read right, it’s BLACK jelly, not even dark navy, it’s totally black on it’s base color, and it really gives nice depth in the color especially on the nail itself. This one is definitely my favorite in all shades, I didn’t get the backup bottle for others but THIS :D Enough coverage with two but here is three coats.

Overall, I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE this LE. Very beautiful and cool glass fleck colors EVER. Well still gold is not that interesting compare to the others, but yes at least OTHERS!! I really would like essence to do this kind of glass flecks - especially jacob’s protection-like one, black jelly with multiple glass flecks - on other colors. How about deep red? Or forest green?? I don’t know if ppl will love those shades, but I WILL!! :D

So…how do you think about these? Which one has caught your eyes? :D

  1. I really love (and own) Alice had a vision, Jacob's protection and A piece of forever. <3 Edward's love is too similar to the Vampire Love's nailpolish no. 05, which came out a year ago.
    Overall, lovely polishes. <3

    1. I know, Edward's love is kinda much silver fleck-lacked ver of Vampire love No. 5...which is not easy to define each other :/
      But yes they're still really lovely <3

  2. Ah, finally someone who agrees that it's a black and not a blue base for Jacob's Portection! I really like that one and the Alice polish. But they didn't meet my expectations... I hoped there was more depth in the polish. :/ (And I totally agree that all the hype around the series is annoying...)

    1. It's not only me but my hub too, who is recognizing the base of Jacob's Protection as "true black jelly"! When it's applied I don't see any "blue" but much black or even hint of brown...never blue :)

  4. chiroさん。はじめまして。こっぴです。
    早速遊びに来ちゃいました。
    このポリッシュ!初めて見ました!
    私はまだセルフポリにチェンジして、日が浅いので知らないことだらけです。
    この綺麗なグリッターポリ!めっちゃ欲しい!
    とても綺麗な色ばかりですね。
    日本にはなさそう…
    これからも、時々遊びに来てもいいですか?
    コメント、とっても嬉しかったです!こっぴ。

    1. ようこそ辺境ブログへ!wどうぞ今後ともよろしくお願いします。
      何せ住んでいる場所が場所なので日本の方にはほんとーに馴染みの無いブランドばかりぼんぼん出て来るブログですが楽しんで頂けると幸いです。
      あとこういう色濃い目の大粒シマー系は確かに日本には無いかも……日本にあるようなラメポリが無い分こういうのが多くなるのかな。essenceというドイツのブランドで、品質悪くないのに物凄いプチプラなので重宝していますw
      ebayなんかでも出品している人は少なからずいると思うのでチェックされると面白いと思いますよー!

  9. こんにちは^^

    ぎゃぁ~!!
    なんですか、このポリ。

    すっごい綺麗です。
    ダークな色に乱切りのホロみたいなラメ感。

    確かに、日本ではあまりないですね。
    以前、ちょっと似た感じのラメ感のポリが限定であって
    すごく気に入って大事に使っていたのですが
    ベースがクリアだったので・・・。

    パープルなんて本当に素敵!!
    あぁ目の保養になりますよ(笑

    これからも宜しくお願いします^^

    1. こんにちはーご来訪有り難うございます!
      ラメというかGlass Fleckと呼ばれる大粒シマーなんですが、どあっぷだと確かに乱切りラメっぽく見えますねー。こちらダークめ・ぱきっとめな色が多いので、そこはいいなあと思っています。……アート資材&ラメポリが極端に無いことだけどうにかならんかと思いますがw

      今後ともどうぞよろしくお願いします!

  10. I didn't get Edward`s Love and Jacob`s Protection because everywhere I wen't they were sold out! I startet to get over that drama, but then came you with these macro-pictures and I went a bit crazy or so ^^
    I ended up on ebay paying for these two more than twice the original price and it's all your fault ;)
    Today Jacob's protection was in my mailbox and wow... It is in reality so much more beautiful and I'm so happy to have it!

    Still waiting for the other bottle. At first my boyfriend cursed you because of the trouble he had with purchasing these two, but as he saw my happy dance he wasn't so sure if he shouldn't thank you instead.
    Thank you, I don't want to have missed this!!!

      Anyway happy to see you love those shades, they are yes really amazing and lovely color...or too lovely to miss them :)
