Essence Dark Romance Nail Polish

This weekend I’m getting a little dark … and romantic. Ok, it’s not as sexy as it sounds but it sure is pretty. Here’s my swatches of The Sparkling nail lacquer from the latest Essence trend colour collection, Dark Romance.

The shade is called Dark Night Starlight. It features a beautiful purple base with super-fine silver shimmer. It’s easily opaque with 2 coats. The formula is easy to work with, even though its a shimmer it moves like a cream and leaves a glossy finish.
