Emily de Molly - August 2015 New Releases

Emily de Molly has been very been the last few months. Exactly one month ago she released six new shades, and today I have swatches of six new shades that will be available tomorrow.

The six polishes have a nice range of finishes, with several holos, and glitter and a gorgeous shimmers.  Lets get straight into it.

Ambitious flower - a red based purple holo.This is two coats without top coat. Other swatches of this show an amazing holo flame, but it just didn't want to come out for my photos.

Copper patina - a dusty turquoise base with a strong copper/pink shimmer.  This sort of finish is what I love about indie brand Contrary Polish, so if you like her shades then you will love this. It''s the mix of contrasting base and shimmers that has me swooning. This is two coats with no top coat.

Cracks in the walls - a tricky shade to describe. I'm going to call is greige.  Its a very pale taupe base that at first you think is silver, but it doesn't have the same starkness to it, instead it has more fleshy tones to make it fit into the 'nude holo' category.  It also has a strong linear holo finish with larger holo giltters for extra sparkle.

Fruitcake in August? - a black jelly base with a fruity mix of glitters in a whole range of colours and sizes.  Suits the name perfectly. As with other Emily de Molly polishes that have a jelly base and glitters, the jelly base has the perfect opacity to achieve full coverage in two coats, yet is sheer enough to let the glitters show plenty of depth. This is two coats with two coats of top coat for a glassy finish.

Great and Small - This one is the next COTM, which isn't colour of the month, it stands for Charity of the Month polish.  With a name like great and small, it's no wonder that the charity is ACT Animal Rescue, a local charity for me that close to my heart, given that our household has had no less than 20 rescue cats over the last 20 or so years. But it breaks my heart when I visit their facebook page and I see all the babies that I can't take in.  

The polish has a soft cornflower blue base with a pink shimmer and strong linear holo. This is two coats with no top coat.

Sleep Walking - a dark blue base with a green shimmer and linear holo finish.This is two coats with no top coat.  A gorgeous inky blue that has an interesting contrasting shimmer as well as a holo finish.

These six new shades launch tomorrow morning Australian time - Saturday 22 August on the Emily de Molly website. Stockists and the US warehouse will be receiving them soon after.

Polishes provided for consideration.
