Today I have the second nail polish from edding for you (yes, edding now makes nail polish!) and this shade is called Mad Mistyrose. This is a rosewood / dusky pink creme shade, probably not a colour I would have picked for myself, but it is definitely work-appropriate and combinable with lots of outfits. Like with edding Real Red, I was surprised by how shiny the first coat of Mad Mistyrose dried, plus one coat of Mad Mistyrose was more opaque than one coat of Real Red. But, as you can see on the picture below, after one coat all the irregularities of my nails were enhanced.
So even though the opacity might already be sufficient for some, I had to add a second coat to even everything out and to get a smoother finish. Application was good, but I had some problems with bubbles again, which I was able to even out with the sealing top coat that edding sent with the nail polishes. This is how two coats with the edding top coat looked like:
The wear was okay, but only if you use top coat. For a comparison I had every second finger painted with the edding top coat for a few days. The nails that didn’t have TC showed tip wear after a day, and chipping and scratches during the second day. The nails with top coat survived the second day, I had to take it off on the third day due to tip wear though. So I really recommend using a top coat to extend the wear.
Price-wise, a bottle of edding L.A.Q.U.E. is as expensive as a bottle of Essie. While Essie bottles contain 13.5 ml, edding only contains 8 ml though so edding is actually more expensive than essie. I would say that the quality is comparable to essie, but it highly depends on the colour you are using. Edding nail polishes are now available at Müller, Douglas, Kaufhof and Karstadt.
Stay tuned for a review of my favorite colour from the trio called Wild Watermelon!
