I didn't want to get this polish initially - give me a dark shade anytime. However, curiosity got the better of me and so, here I am with The Dawn Is Broken, one of the five polishes belonging to the Essence Vampire's Love collection.
This polish bears some resemblance to KOH Playful. The Dawn Is Broken is a light grey crème with some spunk. At first, I thought it had just specks of silver micro glitters which also looked black sometimes, depending on how they caught the light. If you look closely though, they are actually specks of both silver and black.
It's not usually the case with such polishes, but The Dawn Is Broken feels a bit rough and gritty to the touch (you might notice the rough surface in the second photo). Application was a bit streaky but it was nothing too annoying. You're looking at three coats.
