Edward and Bella - Essence Twins Reloaded

Happy Thursday everyone!
Hope your week has been going well. Weather out here in Seattle has been really amazing lately, it's been great!
Today's post is one of my favorite colors, blue and glitter.
This is Edward and Bella, from one of the Essence Twins Reloaded collection - my sweet friend Sharon sent this to me and it's just absolutely beautiful!
First up is Edward, a beautiful, creamy periwinkle blue. This is two coats with one top coat of Posche.
Edward has a great formula, it went on smooth, the brush is a good size, holds the polish and applies it well. Dry time is average and it dries with a nice cream shine.

 Honestly, I loved this polish so much just the way it is, that I wore it for a couple of days just by itself. It's such a vibrant color!

And the lovely glitter topper you see before you now, is Bella, Edwards twin. Bella has square and hex black holo glitter and micro holo glitter. The formula for Bella fabulous for a glitter, no fishing but the suspension base holds just the right amount of glitter on the brush to make it easy to apply and doesn't require multiple layers to give you decent coverage.

 I decided to change up my mani a bit with of stamping, which I used Maybelline Bold Gold and Mash -46. I really like how it turned out.
I finished it off with another coat of Posche top coat. Another great thing about Bella is that it's not top coat hungry, one coat of topcoat was all it took to seal in the glitter and make it smooth.

Edward and Bella can be found on Ninja Polish.

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week! Only one more day to TGIF!! :-)
