Essence Eclipse Don't Bite Me - Kiss Me NOTD

I like the Twilight series. Yes it is very teenage girl of me but dammit I LOVE a good love story! I read the books long before the movies were even in the works and it definitely brings out the romantic/sappy side of me. I'm not a "twihard" or anything but Edward and Bella's seemingly perfect (but complicated) story just touches a little (alright a big) part of my heart. So sue me! I am a romantic =) I wish I had my very own Edward but I guess my boyfriend will do LOL.

I FINALLY got to see Eclipse today and I wore one of my swap acquired Essence Eclipse polishes in honour of the movie. The Eclipse collection was such a huge lemming for me and I didn't think I would ever own them. I am most grateful to Tina from Fleur's nails&stuff for hunting them down for me and including them in our swap =) My boyfriend thought I was totally mad when I told him I HAD to wear an Eclipse polish to see it but I thought it made total sense! Plus I think he was just being mean because I forced him to come with me and therefore he had to sit through 2 hours of Robert Pattinson being all broody and seductive HA.

Don't Bite Me - Kiss Me

I wore Essence Don't Bite Me - Kiss Me as my NOTD. Please excuse the quality of the mani - I did it literally 20 minutes before rushing out the door to watch Eclipse! Don't Bite Me - Kiss Me is a berry polish with purple shimmer. Berry shades are one of my favourites =) It applied relatively well but was a little on the thick side. I did 2 coats for opaqueness and it dried to a semi-matte finish so I topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite as I was in a mad hurry. The colour really reminds me of Orly Once Upon A Time (which you can see in my post here) but with less shimmer.

Thank you to Olivia for tagging me with an award =)
