My local Aussie indie - Emily de Molly has six new shades launching tomorrow, and I'm delighted to share my swatches with you in time for the launch. Hayley, the brains behind Emily de Molly is one of my closest nail buddies, and we try to catch up as often as we can, although when we quickly saw each other last weekend we realised it had been way too long, and we didn't have enough time to chat and play with polish. Isn't that always the way!
Lets get straight into each polish.
Crest Fallen - Oh my! This is stunning. Crest Fallen is a deep rich purple with a strong linear holo and a pink to gold shimmer. The shimmer doesn't dominate, instead is adds a magical glow to the polish. I love that it has hints of pink in the shimmer, yet has such a strong blue section in the holo flame. A true purple in my eyes. Gorgeous! This is two coats with no top coat.
Erratic behaviour - a medium green with a super strong linear holo. I do love a strong green holo! I thought this might be similar to Colors by Llarowe Gemini Rising, because the linear flame is so strong on both, but this is darker and has less lime green appearance. This is a more wearable green where as Gemini Rising is very in your face. The great thing about this one is that it doesn't stain your nails like Gemini Rising does. This is two coats without top coat. Very eye catching.
Forever and ever - A dark teal with a softer linear holo. This polish is also the COTM, which generally stands for Colour of the Month, but at Emily de Molly it stands for Charity of the Month, and she donates $4 from each bottle sold to a local charity. This is two coats with no top coat.
Vivid Dreams - a strong and bright pink with a holo finsh and lots of iridescent colour changing flakes that go from orange through to blue. In bright direct light the holo finish really shows up, and you get bright sparkles from the flakes, but indoors or in the shade that you can really the the colour changing flakes. This is two coats with Seche Vite top coat. Vibrant and striking.
Record keeper - If there were a record for gold polishes, then I reckon I'm the keeper of that record! Yet with all my gold polishes, this one has still managed to be unique. The base is a nice neutral toned gold, not too warm or too cool. It has a strong linear holo finish with ulta holo gold glitters and gold flakes. This is two coats with no top coat. I'm totally in love with this!
Stockpile - to use another pun on the polish name, I'm certainly someone who has a significant stockpile of silver holographic polishes, yet just like the gold polish here, this one is also unique in my collection. This polish is the sister polish to Record Keeper, but obviously the silver version. The base is a strong linear silver holo, with the added sparkles of ultra holo silver glitter and silver flakes. Very impressive.
Also coming soon from Emily de Molly is her Northern America warehouse, which means she will be able to ship to the USA and Canada using local shipping. To me this means fast shipping times and better rates, plus the fact they will actually be able to purchase them direct from the Emily de Molly website, because until now you have only been able to get Emily de Molly polishes from stockists.
These six new shades launch tomorrow morning Australian time - Thursday 23 July on the Emily de Molly website. Stockists and the US warehouse will be receiving them soon after.
Which is your favourite of these. Its a very hard call for me. I think it's the gold, but then that purple and the green are really talking to me too.
Polishes provided for consideration.
