Good morning everyone! I was so excited for this post that I just couldn't wait until this afternoon to post it. :) Before I got into following polish blogs I had no idea that there was a whole world of amazing nail polish out there that the US has absolutely no access to! I have seen so many amazing brands from all over the world....from Brazil to Europe to Asia....it's amazing! Of course, being a polish addict, I want all of these brands but to get them you usually have to know someone who lives where they are sold. I am a member of a Facebook group with some fellow polish addicts, and there are women there from all over the world....this creates an opening for international nail mail!
A few months ago I found out that Essence (a brand sold in Europe) has a collection called "Nail Art Twins". This collection is a made up of polish duos...one is a creme and the other is a glitter topper and they have names of famous couples. When I found out one of the sets was Edward and Bella I HAD to have them, if for nothing else but the name. LOL Lucky for me the set is absolutely GORGEOUS! My friend Ruth from Spain sent these and I am so glad she did!
I decided to do this post today because one month from today, on November 18th, Breaking Dawn Part 1 will FINALLY be released in theaters in the US! I can't wait! And what better way to celebrate than Edward and Bella nail polish!?
I apologize for so many pics....I literally took over 100 pics of this mani and it was hard for me to narrow it down out of the good ones. LOL
First up is Bella - a gorgeous turquoise cream that applies flawlessly. It is nearly a one-coater although I used 2. The first pic is truest to the actual color. I topped it off with a coat of Orly Sec 'N Dry...it was a little on the "satin" side by itself.
But then we add Edward and it is an amazing combo! The first 2 pics are indoor shots and truest to the color. The outside shots show the sparkle really well but also kind of washed the color out.
Look at that gorgeous Edward sparkle in the sun! (Sorry, I couldn't help myself. LOL)
What do you think of Edward and Bella? Even of you're not a Twilight fan, these are still amazing polishes to own! Who else is counting down the days until November 18th?!
