Essence - True Love (Vampire's Love Trend Edition)

Here comes the most popular nail polish shade from the Essence Vampire's Love trend edition. I used to be one of the most hardcore purple nail polish lovers, but I guess I'm not anymore. This one didn't look too special to me and I even said it's not original. Maybe I was wrong ...

This polish looks so much better with top coat, but I didn't take any photos with it, so you'll just have to believe me. As with all other Vampire's Love polishes, the application was easy, the formula is just right and all in all, it's a wonderful polish.

Essence, True Love, 2 coats

I promised to show you a comparison with my other purple shades. I think I have to take back my words about True Love not being original enough. I'm a purple maniac and I own a lot of purple shades and none of them come close to True Love. Maybe it's because of my love for cool toned purples, maybe it really isn't that common shade. I don't know, but now I can say it is rather special.
I picked three shades that came as close to True Love as possible and you'll see they're just way off.

From top to bottom: China Glaze Stella, Essence True Love, Zoya Yasmeen and China Glaze Let's Groove. Two coats of each.

Yeah, I was definitely wrong. True Love is special in it's own way, but I still think it's not that pretty. At least not compared to other purples, warm or cool toned.

Can you think of a shade that could be a dupe-ish to True Love?

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  3. I think I love "true love"! So pretty! I think it's the best of the purples. I didn't look in my collection to see if I have anything similar but if I find anything I will comment again. It's really a gorgeous color!

  5. I thought it was not that original, too but I bought it all the same. I was a sucker for purples so I own quite a few of them, in case I find a dupe I'll let you know (BTW I actually like it, so maybe I'm still a purple addict, despite my increasing green polishes).

  10. Nah, it's nothing special... But I personally don't pick purple for my nails that much. Can't think of a dupe since I haven't got that many purple polishes :)

  11. I am definitively a purple addict and this polish looks super pretty to me! And the 3 others are beautiful too.

  12. Have you tried Ciate's Camilla? I think it's pretty similar as well. Camilla is a bit matt.

  13. I wouldn't have thought it was that special until I saw it on your nails. I really like it!

  15. That's a fantastic polish. I have the 2 China Glaze & the Zoya. It's very different from the Essence polish. Hope I have something like it. Probably do but I never remember the names.

  18. Wow. Tega mi je "moral" kupit fant, ker sem ga pustila na polnem stojalu nekje na Slovaškem (vzela sem zelenozlatega in modrega), ampak je njemu bil tako všeč, da ga je kar kupil zame. In zdaj bi se totalno tolkla po glavi, če ga ne bi vzela. Super barva!

  19. luštna jesenska barva....jaz se pa še kar oklepam poletnih barv. trenutno imam en zelo živo roza lak na nohtih:) Eh, da vsaj malo energije dobim, če že nimamo sonca:)

  20. I don't think "true love" is that pretty either, I don't like the tone.

  21. I think the silver shimmer makes it different from all the "wine" shades we have out there... dying to get my hands on this collection, it's a shame we don't get essence in the usa or in brazil (i actually emailed you about the hits holos from brazil).

  22. Do you have ChG Cowgirl Up? It is similar to Stella but I am wondering if they are dupes. :) I like True Love but can't think of anything dupe-y to it.
