Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been really sick these past few days. There's been a bug going around here in Miami, and it finally caught up with me. I'm feeling a bit better now, so here are the polishes I wore last week.
A couple of weeks ago I had the urge to take a little trip to my nearest Ulta store to use one of the coupons they sent me in the mail. I almost walked out of the store empty handed until I passed a cute little display of beauty products from Essence inspired by the latest Twilight movie. I've never been a Twilight fan. I saw one of the movies, and that was enough for me. The polishes on the display however, were much too cute to pass up, and at only $1.99 each, I had to snag all four of the colors and a nice red lip gloss too that was around $2.49 ;). I don't like to "swatch" polishes; I like to wear them as a mani for a full day at least before I change colors. Maybe I'll become a swatcher further down the road. Here is how I wore the colors last week!
|I love the blue sparkle and how it shows in brighter lighting!|
|Alice had a Vision- Again: This is the same concept as the polish above, but with mostly purple sparkles. There is also some blue to it, which can be seen in the sunlight pics below.|
|Edward's Love: Cute name if you're a Twilight fan...lol. This polish is also similar in concept to the first two polishes, but with silver shimmer/sparkles in it. This one gave me the least trouble formula wise out of the three dark polishes, as it wasn't as thick before I added thinner to it. Out of all of the darker polishes, I would probably have to say that Jacob's Protection is my favorite. I'm a sucker for blues.|
Overall, I am glad I decided to take these polishes home. The formula of the dark polishes was troublesome at first, but it was nothing a couple of drops of nail polish thinner can't fix. These retail for $1.99 at Ulta, and the Essence Twilight display has other nice makeup products that I would recommend taking a look at. What do you guys think of these? Should I give the Twilight movies another shot? lol...ttyl!
