Emily de Molly Anniversary Release (June 2019) - Swatches & Review

Sunday, 26 May 2019


What seems to be an eternity to me now Hayley shared with my the bottle shots of this year's anniversary release.  If you have seen them in the Facebook group then you will know exactly how drool worthy they are!  Never the less, I stalked the postie like a crazy person until they arrived and I have to say the are even more jaw dropping in person than they are in pictures (no offense to anyone's photography skills - I am a firm believer that polishes always look better in person than in pictures).  Anyway, fast forward to now and I have swatches and a review of all of the new pretties.  Woohoo!


Botanical Musings is a dark teal green with a fine particle red to green aurora shimmer.  I loooove this one!  The colour is gorgeous and that shimmer!!!!  *insert heart eyes here*  The formula is amazing and so easy to use.  I used three coats for my swatch as I found it a little see through at the tips for my personal taste.

Magic Maker is a mauve / purple crelly filled with iridescent flakes in orange / gold / green.  It's purple and has flakies so you just know that I am going to looooove this one!  The colour is stunning and there are soooo many flakies.  Love, love, love!  The formula is fantastic and applies easy.  My swatch shows three coats, however I am sure most people will stop at two coats.

Ornate Print is a dark grey crelly filled with iridescent flakes in orange / gold / green and also blue / purple.  Have I mentioned that I love flakies?  No?  Well I do!  I absolutely love the flakies in this one and I love the base colour too.  Like with Magic Maker, the formula is fantastic and so easy to work with.  I used three coats for my swatch, however you can stop at two coats.

Pale Horse is a bright pink / gold / green multichrome with silver holographic micro glitters.  Love, love, love this one!  The colour is gorgeous, the holographic micro glitters are beautifully and that shift of the multichrome!!  I don't think words can quite describe the love I have for this polish.  The formula is fantastic and easy to use.  My swatch shows three coats.

Take Backs is a pink to green magnetic multichrome with a gold magnetic effect and gold holographic micro glitters.  You will be sick of me saying this but I love this polish as well.  I think it is a gorgeous colour and it is so shifty.  Personally I think I prefer this one without the magnet.  Now you will notice that there is a difference in my swatches when using the magnet.  The first time I wore it I was having an "off day" and couldn't get the magnet to work (I also kept knocking my nails) so I did reswatch it.  I thought I would show you both versions so you can see what it looks like with a more subtle look as well.  My swatch shows three coats.

Test Subject is a bright cornflower blue with a fine particle red to green aurora shimmer and silver holographic micro glitters.  This one is definitely a favourite of favourites.  I'm so in love!  The colour is absolutely stunning, the shift is amazing (although I think it may be more shifty in person than it looks in my pictures) and the formula is fantastic.  I used three coats for my swatch, however you can stop at two coats.

Unframed is a medium purple crelly base with metallic turquoise green micro flakes.  Will it come as a surprise for me to tell you that I don't love this one?  Of course it would be a surprise but it is also a big fat lie.  I love this one!  The colour and shimmer are both beautiful and the formula is amazing.  For my swatch I used two coats.

I'm sure it goes without saying that I absolutely LOVE each and every one of these polishes.  They are all amazing and I think everyone needs this collection.
