Emily de Molly | May 2017

Emily de Molly knows all the right notes to play. Every month brings us a new collection of shimmering beauties...I just don't know how she does it. But every month, she does it so right.

(promotional samples ahead)


State of Mind
What is better than holo? How about a multichrome holo? Oh, and did I mention that there are also some coppery rose holo glitters in there too? Yeah...EdM is coming for your wallet here. The formula is amazing, and I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite for these pictures.

Sparta Drive
This is a dusty, subdued raspberry sherbet shade filled with shifting aqua shimmer. Its the perfect "office friendly" shade...but with a tiny bit of mischief. It applies like a cream and I used just two coats here, followed by a layer of Seche Vite to get the glossy look seen here.

Perception is Key
Another sneaky, sexy multichrome holo with holo glitter. In photos it shows a green face, but in reality is is a lot more blue + purple. I just love colors like these...except for the photographing. I feel like I am constantly saying "you have to seeeeeee it". But it is true. Bring this baby home, you won't be sorry. The formula is smooth and divine, and I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here.

On the Bench
This is a warm, burnished gold holo filled with orange holo glitter. On me, this looks very grown up and Fall appropriate. I think on someone with a warmer/deeper skin tone, this would be a glorious neutral holo. (If you fit that bill and pick this up, please tag me? For science!) It applies smooth and easy, and (again) I only needed two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite for these pictures.

It's Sunday Somewhere
Speaking of grown-up, check out this soft shell-pink holo. It is filled with a mix of iridescent hexes pink holo hexes, and even a dusting of shifting shimmer. It is feminine and soft, but still sophisticated. Because this one is so dense, it is a wee bit thicker than the rest of this group..though I still only needed two coats plus Seche Vite for these pictures.

Bring the Light
This is an icy, pale lilac linear holo with holo glitter. Need I say more? I have a notoriously large place in my heart for colors like this, so when it comes to judging this one I just can't be objective. The formula is like magical satin. The color is like a frosty coastal twilight. The rainbow is strong and true. Sigh. Objectively, it applied super smooth and nice. I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here.

Ava
This electric orchid is another color that I have a huge fucking tiny bit of a bias towards. Adding that shifting turquoise shimmer to it just makes me love it more. Oh, and did I mention that this is almost a one coater? Because yeaaaah. This is the good stuff.  I used one medium coat and achieved perfect opacity. Without a topper, this polish is a lovely demi-matte finish which I kinda dig. I added a second coat for the sake of Seche Vite, but I almost didn't need it. (I also sponged on a layer to my ring to see if it made a difference. Spoiler: it does not.)

And there we are! Another seven glorious shades available for our polishing pleasure. I don't think I can pick a favorite, since there are two of my top three shades in this collection already. I just can't let those icy, faded lilac shades pass me by. It is my version of Achilles' Heel. What is your weak spot when it comes to color?

  7. Hot damn! I seriously tried to pick a favorite. I went through several times. Sparta Drive was the first one to make me say "WOAH!" but after that it was impossible to just love one. Your swatches are perfect.
