Essence - Alice Had A Vision Again (Breaking Dawn Trend Edition)

Essence Trend Edition ''The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part II'' (whoa, what a long name) hit our stores. Like 2 weeks ago. Only one item felt right enough for me to buy it and if Essence was trying to top their Vampire's Love TE, they failed miserably. Especially when it comes to nail polish. Alice was the only one who convinced me...

I purchased two bottles of Alice Had a Vision - Again. One for me and one for a very special friend of mine.

At first it looked boring, but when you take a closer look... magic!

I adore this color and I love the fact it doesn't look black. It's purple with tons of colorful shimmer flecks. My joy ends here. This polish has one of those Catrice kind of polishes I hate so much. Big and unevenly cut. The next thing that bothers me is the opacity. I used 2 coats for my swatches and I could use another one. You know me by now. Three coaters are a no-no for me (at least for everyday use). But for ~ 2€ ... I'm done complaining.

Which product(s) from this TE convinced you to buy it/them? 

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  3. I bought the three dark polishes and the blush. I also think these about the polishes, they are beautiful but their quality... huge fail.

    1. Yes, I use lightbox from time to time and a big working lamp. =) That's why my photos are so bright.

  6. This one's the only I bought. I wanted to get Edward’s Love too, but it looked like regular black polish with silver flecks and I already have several of those.

    1. Oh, thanks! =) I use a working lamp. Lighting is the most important thing at photography.

  9. I only got this one and the Jacob's Protection polish from this collection, because they really stood out for me. I didn't really look at the other products though.

  11. Pejd se solit :), na nobenem drugem swatchu tale ni zgledal tako krasno kot pri tebi! - zdaj pa sline cedim in grem pa stavit, da sem prepozna za nakup (pa sem tole kolekcijo sigurno vsaj 2 tedna, se ne hecam, gledala skoraj nedotaknjeno v lokalnem DMu).
    Hm, ampak na hitro pogledano mi pa zgleda (z veliko domišljije, I guess), kot da je manikura z gobico narejena...bbl, grem packat, mogoče pa kej rata :)

  12. This polish is so beautiful, thanks for sharing :)

  13. I bought all four polishes plus the blush. I did'nt really need the fourth polish (the golden one), but sometimes I'm buying faster than I'm thinking...

  14. Great, now I regret not buying it XD

  15. I bought all 4 as I am a Twilight fan.
    Totally agree with you in all points - bad brush, problems with opacity. Also pain in the ass when trying to remove! Little glitter particles try to stay everywhere around your nails. Hope this was not an intention of Essence team - to make you sparkle like Twilight vampire because of poorly removed polish :)

    But still, when on the nails, they are beautiful. I tried stamping with A Piece of Forever over Edward's Love, and the result was quite nice.

    1. Yeah, I didn't mention that beacuse I use Essence nail polish remover without acetone and I thought that might be the cause for hard removal. But you're right, it does leave sparkles all over your nails.

  16. Cool nails. Like that color...

  17. I bought all 3 black shades but since now, only Alice was on my nails. This purple-black polish seems to be the only really remarkable color from this TE. I think that I could have passed on the other polishes.. the last Twilight TE was much better.
