I just discovered a new display filled with the polishes from the Eternal Love Collection. And I have to admit I completely missed out this Limited Edition. And I couldn’t find any swatches online. That is why I sit down yesterday and swatched all the polishes.
The Collection includes 6 Polishes. Compared to the last years Bridal LE, which included a lot of sheer polishes, we have only two sheer polishes this year. And there is also a fantastic one coater. Colorwise Essie did not reinvent the wheel but remember – Bridal is not supposed to be a neon paintball party. Let’s start with the Swatches. I also searched in my Essie Collection for Dupes or similar colors. And I also did a little Stamping Experiment with the polishes.
Here we have the first of the sheer polishes.
After the first Layer it doesn’t look like there is any polish on your nails. The second Layer is better and after the third layer I really liked how the polish looked on my fingers (3 layers are the maximum I use) In the End you have a pink without the white tone.
passport to happiness
One of the Colorpops in this LE. You could make this polish cover in One Coat but usually I use two coats to make get an even result. I would call this color a muted mint with an amazing green shimmer which is still visible on the Nails. Sometimes the shimmer gets lost on the nails – not with this color.
steal his name
The second candidate of the Sheer polishes. Other than with “coming together” you can see the polish on the nails after the first layer. After the second Layer the color gets more intense but after the third Layer the color and result is really beautiful – a rose-peach tone. I also had no issues while painting my nails – no streaking whatsoever.
A beautifil solid Purple, also coverage would be possible if you use a slightly thicker coat. This is the second color pop of the LE but regarding all the polishes this collection contains a bit boring. Sure it is beautiful but there is no shimmer just a simple purple. I had no issues painting my nails – no streaks and in two thin layers the result is fine.
between the seats
From the first look you think “Urban Jungle” and I can tell – they are very close. the Coverage is slightly better with “between the seats” But als usual I used two thin coats.
Wow… just WOW. This is a really stunning Onecoater. And I am a bit head over heels. A beautiful terracotta red, slightly pinkish. Painting is a dream. you really need only one coat. At first look in the display I was like “Ok – Essie is good with red – here we have another one” bit this one – beside the one coat fact – I don’t have any Essie red in my collection coming close to this one. On the Pictures it is again two thin coats.
Now – to help you decide some other colors from Essie to compare if you need one of the polishes.
After realizing that Mrs always-right is a onecoater I had to test the Limited Editon if they are usable for stamping. Of course without the sheer polishes.
And yes – they are working. Basecolor Mrs always-right and ring finger “between the seats”
index finger: passport to happiness
middle finger: between the seats
ring finger: mrs always-right
pinkie finger: groom service
Of course the colors don’t work that good on a dark base but hey, we all know the struggle stamping with lighter colors over dark base, and for that the result is very good
Colorwise not that suprising, but what really got me was “mrs always-right” I mean – the name alone ^^ and then a one coater. All of the polishes were easy to apply, I had no problems with streaking, the coverage of the non sheer polishes is awesome.
Did you get any of the LE polishes?
