Today’s post is about a limited edition nail polish that came out in the fall of 2012. Yup, it’s been four years already! But (1) it’s what I put on my nails last night – for the first time! – and (2) you can still buy it on ebay. 😉 This one is from essence‘s Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 collection and is called 04 Edward’s Love.
The brush on this one is thin and really wide (wider than the latest releases they’ve been doing) with a rounded tip, which I love! I can do my pinkies in one swipe.
Edward’s Love is a black jelly base with micro silvery iridescent chips in it. Let’s take a look at a macro shot, shall we?
The formula is medium thick and I got almost full opacity with two coats, but there were some small patches here and there so I added a third coat. I finished it off with two generous layers of topcoat because I love me a smooth finish.
I really like how it looks on the nails, the iridescent chips glam it up and give it life as opposed to a plain black polish (which I still love).
I do have to say that this one smells strong, whoa! I love essence and have LOTS of their nail polishes and I have not used one that smelled strong like this before. I’m actually getting a little woozy sitting here. And this is from someone who LOVES the smell of nail polish. Even my husband commented on the smell. I usually show him my nails when I’m done, but this time he did not want me to get close to him.
Did you grab anything from this collection when it was out? I still have two more nail polishes that I have yet to try so you will be seeing those at some point.
