Essence, Into the Dark, 2 coats
If only all nail polishes were like this one. The formula is great, nor runny nor thick and the application was a breeze. The brush is flat and just the right size - not too big or bushy (yeah, I'm looking at you Catrice!). I can't say much about the color, you can see it for yourself, but I can say the opacity of Into the Dark rocks. If you apply it with care, you can get away with only one slightly thicker coat. Win!
Although this polish is blue, it can look dark blue-ish grey because of the silver sparkles. I don't mind that one bit. It's mysterious and interesting. At least for me.
I think I still owe you comparison photos of the polishes from the Vampire's Love trend edition. I certainly don't own any polishes that would be comparable to Gold Old Buffy or The Dawn is Broken, so you won't be seeing those. I do have comparison photos for Into the Dark and Hunt Me If You Can for those who might be interested in it.
It's funny to see how some nail polish shades look very much alike in the bottle and completely different while applied onto the nails. BB Couture's Impact Driver is the shade that's closest to Essence Into the Dark. For a moment I thought they could be twins ...
... but they're nothing alike when you apply them to the nails.

As I mentioned in my first Vampire's Love post, there's a dupe in the collection. And it's a dupe of another Essence shade.
The color drops don't look like they're dupes, but they are. I found it very, very hard to spot any difference between the two mentioned polishes once I applied them. They're basically the same. I'd still say that I like Hunt Me If You Can more, because it's bigger (10 mL instead of 5mL) and it costs only 30 cents more.

The next time I change my manicure, I'm gonna do a comparison for the True Love polish from Vampire's Love TE as well.
Thanks for looking and commenting!
