Essence Twilight Breaking Dawn: Alice Had A Vision – Again

Friday’s the big day, Breaking Dawn Part 2 arrives! This is my final post on Essence’s line of Breaking Dawn Part 2-inspired polishes.

Earlier in the week I had Edward’s Love and Jacob’s Protection. But I saved the best for last with today’s Alice Had A Vision – Again. It’s my favorite of the three that I tried. (There’s a fourth, a gold polish called A Piece Of Love, which I didn’t pick up, although I’ve read in the meantime that it’s great for stamping).

Alice Had A Vision – Again has a purple jelly-ish base with what looks like pink, purple and turquoise shimmer in it.

The formula and the brush on this one were a lot better than the others in the line. It was thinner and went on much smoother.

Alice Had A Vision – Again and the other items in the Breaking Dawn Part 2 cosmetics collection are available at Ulta. The polishes cost $1.99

Essence Twilight Breaking Dawn 2: Jacob’s Protection

The countdown to the last installment of the Twilight movie franchise is on: Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere’s Friday. This week I’m showing off some of the polishes from Essence’s Breaking Dawn-inspired line of cosmetics.

Yesterday I featured Edward’s Love, a black base with silver shimmer. Today I’ve got Jacob’s Protection, a black polish with a subtle royal blue shimmer. In low light it looks nearly black, but when the light hits it you can see a hint of blue.

The formula on this one is a little better than Edward’s Love was, but still on the thick side. The brush however, was even worse. It was very uneven with a severe angle on one side that made it a little difficult to apply.

Jacob’s Protection is available at Ulta for $1.99.

Essence Twilight Breaking Dawn 2: Edward’s Love

The last installment of the Twilight movie franchise hits theaters Friday with the release of Breaking Dawn Part 2 (yes, I have secured my tickets). This week I’ll be showing some of the Essence Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 nail polishes.

First up is Edward’s Love. It’s a black polish with a lot of silver shimmer on it. Nothing too special here but it’s a good choice if you want something more than basic black. This is two coats plus one coat of Poshe fast-dry top coat.

I will say that the formula is not that great, and neither is the brush. The formula is very thick, nearly goopy. The brush is on the short side, more like a mini bottle, and the bristle part is a bit too big for my taste.

But if you’re a fan of Twilight and/or $1.99 polish, have at it! I bought these at Ulta; I’m not sure where else they might be available.
