I’m back with more Emily de Molly polish swatches today…and perfect timing, it’s the first birthday of EdM today too!
Starting out with Blueprint* which is a dark blue jelly loaded with blue-purple micro flakie and mixed blue hex glitter. This polish was really difficult to photography because the purple just didn’t want to show but in real life it shimmers between blue and purple, while the blue glitter catches and sparkles on occasion. It’s a nice and subtle effect which I loved as it’s not something I usually gravitate towards. I used three coats for this swatch with no undies (hurrah for not needing undies!).
I’ve had my eye on Candy Coated for a long while now and it was worth the wait. A pretty pastel blue creme with very small pink hexes and fine glitter mixed in. I love the simplicity of polishes like this, as the pink glitter gets layered between the creme coats it looks slightly more purple too! I usually find the EdM formula to be good anyway but this one was PERFECTION, it’s really thin without being runny or streaky so even though I used three coats, it didn’t build up on my nail at all. I love it when my polish is really thin as it makes the free ends of my nails look so much more crisp and square.
Majestic Flight* is a medium green leaning teal jelly with a mix of orange, gold, green, teal and blue hexes scattered through it. There are also small fine gold and silver glitters mixed through it to add some extra depth. This polish is a true jelly and after three coats, there was still a small amount of VNL showing. You could probably easily add another couple of layers and still see the glitters in the bottom layer if you wanted but on the other hand you could just as easily wear this over a base colour to cut back on the layers.
Serenity* is a green-blue turquoise creme (talk about commiting to a colour there!) with a mix of lilac, turquoise and copper glitters. I could stare at this polish all day long, it just has so much happening and when it’s layered up alone it just adds to the interest. The base colour on this is sheer enough that you could layer one coat over any green/blue toned polish I think if you don’t want to wear it alone. I used three coats as usual for these photos and found the glitter balance to be just right. It’s also worth mentioning that the copper glitters are more orange toned in real life, but didn’t feel like playing well with my camera. Hands down my favourite of these four, it will be going on high rotation for me when spring comes round.
You can find all of these polishes available at the Emily de Molly Etsy store and Femme Fatale Cosmetics if you’re here in Australia or check with her international suppliers, such as Llarowe, Shoppe Eclecticco, Norway Nails and Sally Magpies (coming soon).
