Swatches: Essence Vampire's Love Trend Edition Nail Polishes

I've never been so excited about any Essence Trend Edition like I was about the Vampire's Love one. The promo photos of the polishes blew me away and I knew I have to get all of them. Every single shade. That never happened before. I was very fortunate to walk into the store and find all the polishes on the display. I took the last The Dawn is Broken shade... Well, my BF bought them for me, so - thanks, babe! =)


Color drops time...


I just got the polishes and I don't feel like swatching them all separately. I still wanted to show you the swatches, so here you have them. P.S: I think there are 3 must have shades in the collection. Wanna know which three? Keep reading. =)



01 Gold Old Buffy - This is the only polish from the collection that needed 3 thin coats for full opacity. It's the most sheer one, but I still love it. It reminds me of L'Oreal Owl's Night. I don't own L'Oreal, but I'm confident enough to say it's a possible dupe. Gold Old Buffy is adorable. It looks like autumn leaves in the dark. Magical shade and a must have #1.

02 Into the Dark -My Vampire's Love TE absolute favorite. The application of this one was dreamy and pure perfection. It's opaque in one coat, but I applied 2 like always. The color is the second reason to love it. The closest shade in my collection of nail polishes is BB Couture's Impact Driver (I'll do a comparison of these two). This is a certain must have #2.


03 True Love - I think this shade is gonna be favourited by many nail polish lovers. It's my BF's favorite and I like it as well, but I just don't find it that special. It's pretty, the application is great, it needs 2 coats for full opacity - it's absolutely worth buying.

04 The Dawn is Broken - This is a shade only the most hardcore nail polish lovers will appreciate. It's not 'pretty' and it's not conventional. This shade is what I call original, edgy and special. I love it. It's like a Lady Gaga of the collection. It applies very well, it needs two coats and it's my must have #3.

05 Hunt Me If You Can - I could live without this one. Not because I don't like it, it's because it looks a lot like Essence Colour & Go in Galactic Black. Still a very chic shade and made for those who like to wear their blacks. It needs two coats and applies very well.

Conclusion: I love this collection. It's the first time I wanted and got all the polishes from a TE collection and I'm not sorry. I wanna keep all the shades and give them a warm home. I love every single one of them - some will just get more love than others. The application of all polishes was amazing and so was the formula. There's a three coater in the collection, but I don't mind. It's a gorgeous one. Hope we'll see more TE's from Essence like this one.

EDIT: All the polishes are 10 mL and cost €1.79 per bottle.

Which is your favorite?

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  10. Yep. You called it. While the other colors are pretty, they don't have "it" like The Dawn is Broken.

  11. True Love is my favourite although for that price, I'd be happy to add any of them to my collection

  13. I was at the local drugstore today and while the productcard was hanging on the display, there were no polishes yet. I am happy now, because now I won't be standing in front of that display wondering if I should take them all - I will! Thanks for these great swatches.

  14. True Love is awesome. I do think that I may need to just try to step away from purples though. Purple is my favorite color and every time I see it in a nail polish collection, it immediately goes on my "OMG WANT" list. Haha. Purple rehab, anyone?

  15. Oh wow, I absolutely love The Dawn is Broken. It looks special and interesting, yet gorgeous to me. I need it!

  16. Love all the dark ones! oooh! :)

  17. I think anything with Vampire on it will sell. These are a fantastic collection of polishes. Perfect for the vampire lovers. I'm one of them! They look like polishes that I already have. I do have Impact Driver. The Dawn Is Broken is beautiful. Looks like a cement walkway. I really think I have something like this. I have to find it. I like the bumpy look to these also.

  18. Tudi jaz sem komaj čakala na tvoje slikice (vem da so ti všeč vampirji in sem upala da si jih kupiš, lake in ne vampirje ;)) in sedaj zopet ne vem katere odtenke si naj kupim.
    Prvi mi je všeč, ker še nimam ničesar podobnega in olivno zelene 'krpice' izgledajo tako skrivnostno, me pa skrbi da je pretemen. A je barva opazna ali večino časa izgleda črn?
    Drugi mi je bil že na promo slikicah všeč vendar sem pričakovala bolj moder odtenek in ne tako siv, je pa še vedno lušten.
    Tretji rdeče/roza/vijoličen odtenek je sicer zanimiv, vendar me skrbi da ima v sebi moder odsev (to namreč sovražim).
    Četrti, ki je najsvetlejši je pa nepričakovan cekin v vreči in ko ga vidim v živo se odločim ali ga bom kupila in posledično kdaj nosila ;)
    Zadnji je pa črn in zato me ne mika preveč ker se izogibam črne in skoraj črnim odtenkom.

    Najlepša hvala za slikice in upam da mi lahko pomagaš, by ;)

  19. True Love and The Dawn is Broken blew me away. I was at a small store in Interlaken last week and I had to grab them immediately (even though I had to walk around with them in my pocket all day!!). I freaked out when I saw them, I wasn't expecting them to be out yet!

  20. Kot anti-polish človek moram vseeno priznat, da bom prav šla iskat ta siv lak s črnimi bleščicami.

  21. Vsi so krasni, ampak Gold Old Buffy je nadkrasen. Tako zelo, da bi se mogoče celo požvižgala na "srebrne" zaponke na pasovih, torbicah in čevljih in ga dejansko nosila. :D

  22. I need this collection to arrive here!! Unfortunately we are still waiting for new top coats here :-/ Anyway as I bought Galactic Black just yesterday (after reading your review) I think I could skip the black one and buy the others...My fav is (maybe) the Dawn is Broken but also Gold Old Buffy and Into the Dark are to drool on!!

  23. I love Gold Old Buffy, that's the one I need to have if any a all. I love the whole set though. :)

  26. A daaj no, zdaj pa bom morala dobiti Buffy, ta belega in ta modrega, tvoji swatchi ubijajo. ;) Upam, da jih najdem v DMu, ko pridejo tja.
