Sat-ART-Day Club - Vampires

Sooooo, today's theme is all about Vampires...seems like an odd choice for November...oh wait, isn't the last Twilight coming up this week???  I might upset some people with the next statement, but it must be said...I am not impressed with the Twilight movies.  I read the books when they first came out, before all the screaming teenage girls, and thought they weren't that bad, but the movies drive me crazy.  Such bad acting.  My niece LOVES the movies so I am forced to go each year, even to some midnight shows, can't want to see the new one....sarcasm. :)

If you did not know this,  Essence released a set of Breaking Dawn polishes and makeup.   While I was at Ulta this week, I came across the display and did a little happy dance!! You know I love Essence polish so it was a given that they would be mine!! They only one I didn't grab was the gold one, not really a gold fan.  Today's theme gave me the perfect opportunity to use them!

I started with 2 coats of Edward's Love.  This is a gorgeous black, flakie polish with a hint of teal. I couldn't capture the true beauty of this polish in the photos.  I did have some trouble with the wide brush. I have small  nail beds, so wide brushes typically give me trouble.







Next I took Alice Had A Vision - Again and added as a gradient to the tips.






The purple is so stunning and gorgeous.


I added 2 coats of HK Girl and just look at that shine!







Isn't it pretty?!?!  These two polishes are simply amazing!  Can't wait to try the other one!

  1. Team Edward right here! ... Seriously, no.. I hate Twilight lol. However I really love this gradient, it's super dark but vibrant at the same time.

  4. These make such a gorgeous gradient together! That shimmer is totally killer.

    I did read the books back when and enjoyed them well enough for what they were, but the first movie was just popcorn-throwingly awful. So no, I wouldn't get these polishes just for the Twilight angle, but they're *very* appealing on their own merits!

  5. As always, beautiful. I bet this is sparkletastic in the sunlight.

  6. Killer combo! I REALLY liked the books when they came out (except Breaking Dawn, which was like pulling teeth!) but as soon as the movie fandom started out I was just repelled completely! I totally want these polishes too. It's your blog that showed me essence and started my obsession with their colours =P

  9. It's so pretty!! I have to check my Ulta! I'm exactly on the same page with you about the movies...I read the books before the craze and loved them, but the aftermath of the movies (which I hate) made me hate the whole series lol. But these polishes are pretty enough to get anyway!
