Emily de Molly Creams | April 2017

Emily de Molly is well know for unusual finishes, spectacular holos, and stunning glitters. And now, henceforth, for must-have creams. Not only are these some amazing shades, but they are all confirmed to be pretty impressive stampers. Come check out these swatches, and be amazed.

Emily de Molly Creams | April 2017


(promotional samples ahead)


Bip, Bip, Bip
This is a bright, sunshine orange cream with a fine gold shimmer. Since I swatched this one, Ms Hayley has thinned this one out a little and she says the gold shimmer is far more evident on the nail and the formula is a little easier to layer. I used one coat here followed by a layer of Seche Vite, and I am glad to hear it is thinner.

Borrowed Time
This is a pale, peaceful green-leaning aqua. It is a perfect cream, and applied like a dream (accidental rhyme). It wasn't chalky or streaky, and I didn't even have to use a matte base here. I used two normal coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here. I was told this one was also thinned a touch, though I didn't have any issues.

C.R.E.A.M.
This is a magical saturated jade green cream. If you wanted to do a Gumby manicure, this would be your color. This might be the best green cream of 2017. It applied smooth and easy, and I used one coat plus a layer of Seche Vite for these pictures.

Eyes Only
So...I can't be objective with this color. I love these pale, bright blue/periwinkle/cornflowers. This is a great saturated version and I love it. The formula was just as pleasing, and I used a single coat plus a layer of Seche Vite here.

Given the Givens
Hello your majesty! This is a great royal blue with just a breath of violet. It is so bright and vivid, it gives slightly neon vibes. The formula is lovely, and I used two normal coats plus a layer of Seche Vite.

Hot Run
This cinnabar red shade was a big surprise for me. Normally I am not a big fan of warm reds, but this one really made me happy. The formula was creamy and delicious, and I used a single coat followed by a layer of Seche Vite for the pictures here.

Jam Pony
This muted berry is one of my favorites of this collection! It reminds me of a more electric OCC Strumpet, which is one of my favorite lipsticks (and nail polish). This one is another wonderful one-coater, and I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite.

Love Among the Runes
I love this pale pinky lavender. It is a wonderfully modern take on a traditional Eastery pastel. The formula is nice and smooth and I used two coats for these pictures here followed by a layer of Seche Vite.

Monty Cora
I do love a good gray...and this is a very good one. It is a nice, warm leaning stormy gray cream. The formula was fantastic, and I used a single coat plus a layer of Seche Vite for the pictures here.

Original Cindy
This glossy grape cream reminds me of a now-discontinued Wet'n'Wild color that I loved to death. Only this formula is worlds above that one. I only needed one coat plus a layer of Seche Vite for these pictures.

Picasso in My Cocktail
This was the perfect 90s raisin mauve...until I top coated it. Then it shifted into an equally-nice-but-not-at-all-what-I-wanted warm, ruddy brown. I tested it with my Yellow Stopper base + Seche Vite, and then my regular peely latex base + Gelous, Seche Vite, NYC Grand Central Station, and Vapid Matte...all brown. I like it, but I'm sad. Ms. Hayley can't figure it out, so this became a freebie-with-purchase. The formula was magic though, and I only needed a single coat for these pictures.

Proof of Purchase
This is a country blue cream. The formula was easy and pleasant, and I used a single coat plus a layer of Seche Vite for these pictures.

Slackers, Bums & Weirdos
I am a little confused on how to describe this shade. It is a bit like a smokey robin's egg blue. It definitely feels like a mature, put together Easter color. The formula is, again, flawless. I used one coat plus a layer of Seche Vite for the pictures below.

Terminal City
This is a great, medium-deep softened charcoal gray. This is another very modern-feeling color. And again, this formula is great and I only used a single coat plus a layer of Seche Vite for these pictures.

X452
This is a muted, dusty, modern proper violet. The formula is smooth and easy, and I used one coat plus Seche Vite here. I though I should have used a second coat, because I can see a little thin spot on my pinky. But this is more than opaque enough to make a great base for nail art.

These are all the creamiest of creams. EdM does good work, regardless of finish. I am also told that these stamp very very well. Once I find my stamping plates, I intend to test that out for sure. They are more than opaque enough to be great for stamping. I also intend to test out their water marble viability...when I find my special glass. Moving sucks, guys.
