Essence - True Love

Tired of Essence already? :) I think the colours are quite great, so I hope not! Today I have for you the second one from Vampire's Love collection. I've bought three, the blue one is still in my untrieds, if you don't count the comparison I did. *blush* But it shan't be there long, I cut my untrieds down to around 15! Anyway. True Love was a maybe for me, but in the end Nihrida's swatch convinced me I need that one too. The black one of the collection I didn't take because I have similar blacks at home, and nothing will beat China Glaze Haunted or Catrice Back to Black for me. The white one seemed awfully close to the gorgeous Misa's Grey Matters. So I left it behind. I don't regret buying True Love, it's a lovely shade of purple. But Zoya Yasmeen completely stole my heart when it comes to purples. It is my perfect, truly perfect purple and frankly, it's the only purple I need. Obviously it's not the only one I have, but you know, if I only had to pick one purple and stick to it, that would probably be the one. But let's not steal the thunder from this great purple, for True Love is a great purple to have!





I manage to capture True Love in natural light, direct sunlight and my usual lightbox pictures. So you can see how it looks like in every light. :) Two coats for full opacity, I like that! Still, purple phase is well behind me, I think. I rarely feel like wearing purple and I rarely get crazy over purple shade I see in new collections. Great colour nevertheless, I can imagine a lot of purple fans loving this.

Which colour rocks your world the most right now?

Thank you for reading!

    1. Hehe, good, I know the feeling, sometimes I browse through the blogsphere and I could make a list of nail polish I want to wear right at that moment. :)

    1. I'm more into red ones too. They seem sexier for some odd reason. :D

  5. blasphemy! leaving the purple phase behind you, sheesh! :P
    Yup, I'm still wholly & truly into it. *sigh* This specific one was the one that got away - or rather, I never managed to get near it. It's gorgeous.

  8. ovaj je izavao ogroman hype kad je tek izasao :) meni je lijep ali nista spektakularno. zaboravih totalno na sivog dok ga nisi spomenula, e za njega mi je mozda mrvicu zao sto ga na kraju nisam kupila, ali nema veze bit ce drugih zanimljivih lakova

  9. I got the whole collection, I must say that. But when it comes to purples, I prefer darker ones to light ones. Anyway this is a great shade, but nothing new in the polish scene.
    I'm mostly (and always!!) into blue polishes, teals, violets and unique black ones (glittery, shimmery....not just black).
