Emily de Molly August 2019 Release - Swatches & Review

Friday, 16 August 2019


In my last post I mentioned that one of the downsides to being sent polishes to swatch and review is the wait time between wearing them and then being able to show them and OMG! That is most definitely the case when it comes to swatching the new Emily de Molly polishes.  I am obsessed!  And completely head over heels with this month's release.  Hayley is absolutely killing it!  Let me show you what I mean...


Fame And Decadence is a dark grey holo with very strong copper/gold/green multichrome shimmer.  I love everything about this polish.  The colour is gorgeous, the shift is awesome and the formula is fantastic.  I used three coats for my swatch but that is because I am fussy.  You can easily get away with two coats (it was just a little see through at the tips for me).

Half Orange is a dark but vibrant purple base with orange/pink/gold/green iridescent flakes.  Love, love, LOVE!!!!  I mean its purple, it has flakes - how can I not love it?  The formula is really easy to work with and is opaque in three coats (although you can get away with two coats).

Say The Word is a vibrant green base with green/blue/purple aurora pigment.  This is another love of mine.  I love the colour, the shift that it has and the formula applies like a dream.  You can stop at two coats, however I did use three coats for my swatch.

Tenfold is a moss green base with copper/blue/green aurora pigment and silver holographic micro glitters.  Again, I am so in love with this polish as well.  The colour and shifts are gorgeous, I love this holo, and the formula is fantastic.  I did use three coats for my swatch but you can stop at two coats.

The Missing is a steel blue with orange/gold/green shifting iridescent flakes.  I'm a big fan of this one.  It's such a great colour and of course I love the flakies.  Again, the formula is easy to use.  My swatch shows three coats.

The Puzzle is a pale duck egg blue base with orange/gold/green shifting iridescent flakes.  This one I don't think photographs as nice as it looks in person.  It's really nice!  And the formula is great.  I used three coats for my swatch, but you can stop at two coats.

Undeterred is a vibrant purple metallic flake in a purple base.  LOVE!  The colour is gorgeous and the formula is awesome.  You can easily get away with one coat, however you may find it a little see through at the tips.  My swatch shows two coats.

Where You Stand is a dark base with green/mauve/pinkish red shifting foil shimmer.  This is such an awesome polish and soooooo shifty.  It actually shows more colours in person than what I could capture.  It's so good!  The formula is also great.  I did use three coats for my swatch (because I am fussy) but you can stop at two coats.

In case you can't tell already - I LOVE THESE POLISHES!  I can't pick favourites because I love them all.  I think they are must haves.  You can thank me later.
