Concrete Shine - Essence The Dawn Is Broken + Color Combos CTW507

Another scheduled post from me! Current location: probably at Tokyo Disneyland being confused and bombarded with light and sound! =X 

One collection I really liked this year was Essence's Vampire Love collection. I almost bypassed it because of the "vampire" bandwagon hype... but thank goodness I didn't! Managed to pick up all the ones I wanted from it and here's one of them!

[Bottle to nail: Essence The Dawn Is Broken]
Essence The Dawn Is Broken - a concrete creme with tiny black and silver flecks! From what I've seen on blogs online, people seem to either love it or hate it... As for me, I love it - it's totally my favourite from the collection!

[2 coats: Essence The Dawn Is Broken]
The formula is absolutely perfect - full coverage in two coats, dries smooth and relatively quickly.

I added a bit of sparkle using Color Combos CTW507 - check out Jme's gorgeous photos of this glitter polish! The fun thing is that this glitter is virtually invisible at particular angles when it's a sort of translucent purple... but shift the angle...

Voila! Check out the gorgeous blue and green flashes! Excuse the terrible pics, this mani is a little old and I hadn't quite figured out how to properly photograph glitter by lamplight yet... ;)

I'll be back next week, woooo!
