Up today I have 3 amazing polishes from an Aussie Indie brand called Emily De Molly. Sally Magpies magnificent nail emporium now stocks EdM’s (which is where I purchased these from) so these may well be cropping up on British nail blogs all over and the more swatches of these stunning polishes the better. These are pretty amazing, the Australians really do seem to know how to make pretty nail polish. (Any Australian friends reading this, I see some political shenanigans going on today, my only words of comfort have to be that they can’t be any worse than the muppets who run the UK, I hope not.)
First up Falling Skies. Clear base with holographic stars and moons with teal, blue, silver and purple glitter.
I layered this over A-England Brial Veil. This polish does require fishing and this is stated on the polish blurb. I just fished out some stars and moons, coated the nail with the polish which went on with no problems and then placed a star or moon with a dotting tool. This is 1 layer of SV top coat (maybe I needed 2 to capture the glassy effect, but 1 coat got it smooth, not sure the pictures reflect that) but I couldn’t stop staring at this… stunning! I actually went for a run (10K people!!) and kept catching it in the sun, slightly distracting The photos don’t do it justice.
Here we have Cosmic Forces – have you ever seen a polish like this? its just bloody amazing!
Described as a deep purple/plum jelly with Lavender holo dots and hex and pink dot glitter.
For starters the purple is just stunning and its the most jelly like I have ever seen in a polish. For this I fished out the large circles, coated the nail in 3 layers. I added the circles as I went with a dotting tool. On reflection the circles just need to be added to the last coat.
The circles actually stick together so its worth checking that you have just 1 circle – you want to make the most those pretties (and thanks to Loola for the tip!) This just needed 2 coats and 1 SV.
And one more pic with flash just to show all that lovely purple glittery specialness
And last but not least is Simplicity. Described as a Light pastel purple jelly/creme with matte white and iridescent glitter.
This was thin and first layer went on really sheer but in 3 coats this built up beautifully. No fishing. I did have to add 2 coats of Poshe top coat, this one took 2 coats to get a smooth finish – you might only need 1 of SV.
I love how finished it looks like a creme but it has the jelly layer effect. Its simply stunning.
So can you tell I am impressed and in love with all 3? Available in the UK from http://www.sallymagpies.co.uk/ and elsewhere check out the Emily De Molly Etsy shop for other worldwide stockists and purchase in Oz.
