Essie Under the Twilight coverI’m kind of loving this polish from Essie’s 2014 Resort Collection!

Under the Twilight isn’t exactly what I’d expect from a Resort collection but I have to say it’s gorgeous.

Essie describes this polish as a smokey plum. Um, what? At least to me there has to be some red in a purple for it to be called plum. And I see no red in this polish,

I would describe Under the Twilight as a deep medium toned purple (neither red or blue leaning). It’s a lovely color that, believe it or not, is not a dupe of anything in my collection. China Glaze Queen B (or Essie No More Film) is close but is not as dark and has more of a blue undertone.

The formula is fabulous. I used 2 coats in my swatches.

I haven’t seen the display for this collections in stores yet but this polish is currently available on Amazon and The mini set for this collection includes all four polishes and is available from Amazon and

There are swatches under the jump.
