NOTD Essence Twins Featuring Bella, Edward and Julia

Good afternoon my fellow lacquered lovers!  Today, I'm doing something I don't normally do! I'm showing you my Nail Of The Day (or NOTD in the polish community!)  I had a swap with a lovely friend in Spain and she got me a bunch of Essence Nail Art Twins!  These polishes come in sets of 2 and are named after famous couples (speaking of, if anyone can find me the Thelma and Louise set I will love you forever!) 

Above:  From left to right Edward, Bella and Julia

Now even though I have a bit of an aversion to Twilight since so many people, including random strangers on the street, tell me I look like Kristen Stewart, Edward and Bella was by far the set I was most looking forward to!  Since I'm a sucker for square glitter and holo, Julia was thrown into the mix as well.  Now, without further ado, on to the polish!






So I started off with one coat of Bella because this is a teal polish that's a one coater.  I'm pretty much in love with it.  I will report back if it stains like I'm pretty sure it will.  Not to worry, I have my polish toothbrush and whitening toothpaste ready for action!  Then I added one coat of Edward which is teal and silver  small glitter and square teal glitter!  I LOVE square glitter!  It's so fun!  Then I added one coat of Julia (from the Romeo and Julia set, which shouldn't that be Juliette?  Food for thought.) as an accent nail which is silver and holographic glitter and more square glitter!  I'm in love with this manicure!

So there you have it, my nail of the day!  If you follow me on Instagram (which I'm obsessed with, my name is lacqueredlover and leave me your names in the comments so I can follow you!) then you have been seeing this last night and all day today haha!  If you have a friend in Europe who can get this for you, do it!  I love them!

What did you all think of this manicure?  Any dupes?  Do you love square glitter as much as I do?

  1. I am totally obsessed with the Twins duos! I think Bella & Edward are the faves though... who would have thought that square glitter could drive us wild! Haha if I get any leads on Thelma & Louise, I'll let you know. Mine came from EvilBay :/

  5. An awesome combo!! I've got all of those twins but it never crossed my mind to combine the glitters like that! I've got the thelma&louise, and I will definitely search for them for you, too. You'd like the Bonnie&Clyde, too? I believe I saw some twins in the clearance basket somewhere... Very vague, I know, but I'll try. :) I'm hunting for the Essence Fruity LE at the same time for myself - the promo pics look really juicy!

    1. Yes if you could find Bonnie and Clyde and Thelma and Louise that would be amazing! Let me know! These are my first Essence and so far I love them! I always like doing an accent nail so I figured I should mix up the two square glitters I had!

  6. It seems "Romeo and Juliet" translates to "Romeo und Julia" in German. I'm guessing that's why the polish is Julia instead of Juliette. Lovely polishes!

  10. Ha! I just thought Romeo and Julia were characters on a show I don't watch, because surely they couldn't have gotten Shakespeare wrong.
