My third place from Essence’s Vampire’s Love collection goes to Into the Dark — a smoky and muted darkish blue with subtle silver micro glitter. This worked well for me. 🙂 But I’d learned my lesson with the two polishes I tried first from this collection and added a drop of thinner to the rest. Much more manageable. 🙂
I really like this one. It’s dark, but not black; blue, but not so much that I feel like I have blue nails when I wear it. And the colour is pretty enough that I’m not bothered when the glitter is really subtle in low light.
If I think about it… the base colour actually reminds me of Mavala’s Smoky Blue. 🙂
