Essence Bella and Edward

I hope you're enjoying your Friday! Let's think of today as Flashback Friday. I'm wearing a polish I originally posted about back in September. Normally, I don't blog about swatches twice, but I think this combination warrants a second look. Plus, my nail photography skills have improved, so better swatches this time around.





These two polishes are part of the Essence Nail Art Twins Collection. A base color and glitter topper are paired together and named after famous couples. They have pairs such as Bonnie and Clyde, Chuck and Blair, and Carrie and Mr. Big, plus several others. This particular pair is Bella and Edward, from the Twilight novels/movies. Even if you dislike them, don't let that bias you against this gorgeous combination.

Bella is a lovely one coat teal creme with perfect application. Edward is an amazing glitter polish with silver and teal hex glitter, teal square glitter, and small holo glitter. I'm wearing one coat of each. This combination is without a doubt one of my favorites. I've been wearing it since Tuesday and plan to remove it tonight, though I honestly don't want to despite the tip wear.

Essence Nail Art Twins are available in Europe. Given I'm not located in that part of the world, I am unsure of which stores carry Essence in Europe, but their website has a store locator for you. I'm also unsure how available the collection currently is. If someone knows, please let me know. Thank you!
