It’s nearly long weekend time! I don’t know about you but I am really looking forward to the much needed long weekend.
I picked up this polish a while on sale at Dischem and I really loved it. I love that it is pretty neutral but still has a little something special about it. It is from a previous limited edition from Essence called Vampire’s Love. Let me show you how pretty.
Essence Vampire’s Love – The Dawn is Broken
This is two coats of The Dawn is Broken. It is a cream coloured polished packed with darker (black?) and silver micro glitter / shimmer. I have seen some people don’t like it at all saying it looks like concrete but I really love it. It’s subtle while still being special.
I couldn’t just leave it as is though so I decided to stamp over it. I tried out a different polish to stamp with. I used NYX matte polish in brown and Pueen15 and stamped the full design on every nail.
My favourite is my ring finger. The design seems to be most clear on that nail. The NYX polish stamped really well but the minute I came near it with topcoat it turned into a mess. It looked very similar to a marbled effect. Not exactly the look I was going for. So I started over, used a different topcoat and same thing. I then tried this for a third time and decided to just leave the topcoat alone. 😉 I don’t know if maybe it just need more time to dry before topcoating. I didn’t want to risk it again to be honest but I will do a test run of this soon.
I am still completely in love with my Pueen stamping plates and I am trying hard to not just do post after post with stamping. Unless that is what you want of course 😉
What do you think of this polish? Do you also love the neutral stamping? Everyone knows I love bright colours but I was surprised by how much I liked this! It’s downhill to the weekend! Thank goodness!
Thanks for reading!
