Lots more lovely Emily de Molly polishes to spam you with today. I can’t get enough of her polishes, I’m upto 10 of them now! It’s so nice that since I started buying them they have now become available worldwide and to watch Hayley’s success. I also like that there is no hype around premeditated collections and limited editions.
The first polish is Girl’s Best Friend, an eyesearing, near neon, pink jelly with silver holo hexes and squares. I really like the simplicity of this polish although nothing prepared me for how bright this polish is, you need to see it in person to truly appreciate it. It reminds me a bit of Hare A Positive but the glitter is slightly less dense (which I think is a good thing) and the base is a nice bright pink which suits me far better than red which I hardly wear. Also all the glitter laid smoothly against the nail bed and only needed one top coat to get an even finish. I was wearing three coats in these pictures and there was no VNL.
Next is A Certain Shade Of Green which is my stand out of the four. I’m not really sure how to describe the base colour on this polish, it is definitely green, yet without holding it next to something blue it looks like it could almost be a dusty blue. Another jelly polish that builds to perfect opacity in three coats, it has a mix of pale green large hexes, smaller silver hexes and the piece de resistance….small lilac hexes. You can see a few on my middle nails. The lilac hexes really make this for me, it gives some subtle interest while keeping the polish completely wearable without being in your face. I’ve already worn this twice and I’ve only had it two weeks!
Split Personality is a departure from Hayley’s normal polishes and had me completely intrigued. A periwinkle base loaded with pink shimmer makes it difficult to decide if this polish is truly blue or purple. There are tiny copper flecks in this polish too which you can see quite clearly in the photos add that little bit extra. This polish was a little sheer, I ended up applying four coats to ensure I didn’t have any VNL but it would easily layer over a blue or purple polish too.
Finally Stuck On Blue which I ended up going back and ordering separately after kicking myself for not ordering it with the others above! I was so excited that my postie actually rang my buzzer and delivered it to me at home instead of having to make the trek to the post office where I always get the same miserable woman. So I had time to swatch it to go into this post, wheeee! Another bright jelly polish, this sits somewhere between sky blue and turquoise but I wouldn’t quite class it as either. This polish has a mix of gold and silver hexes and squares and honestly my photos don’t really do it justice. This is a fabulous bright summer polish that really pops. Once again I went with three coats which seems to be the ideal point for getting a feeling of depth with the glitter and obliterating my VNL.
Keep your eyes peeled, I’ve got swatches from another two Australian brands coming up soon, it’s exciting times to be living down under!
