Emily de Molly December 2019 Releases - Swatches & Review

Monday, 23 December 2019


Some of you may have seen a sneak peek at this post back in November.  Knowing how quickly time goes and how limited nail/blogging time I would have I thought I would be smart and write the polish descriptions for the upcoming Emily de Molly release so that I could easily go in and add my thoughts and swatches when I was ready.  Well it turns out that it somehow got posted (either it was a glitch or I accidentally hit publish) so some of you may have seen the polish descriptions.  If you didn't that is totally ok, because you haven't missed out on anything.  Today I have not only polish descriptions, but also my thoughts and swatches of all the new Emily de Molly polishes that are about to be released.


Be My Something is a bright red (almost neon) base with gold holographic micro glitters and iridescent flakes.  This is such a vibrant colour and definitely fun to wear.  The formula is great and easy to use.  I used three coats for my swatch but you can stop at two coats.

Card Trick is a dark blurple base filled with iridescent shifting flakes.  Obsessed with this one.  It's absolutely stunning - both the base colour and those flakies.  This polish is definitely packed with flakies so I did find that when I was applying the first coat that it was easier to use a slight dabbing motion rather than applying the polish in strokes.  For my swatch I used three coats.

Flexible Morality is a medium brown base with strong green to pink shifting shimmer.  The colour shift in this is amazing!  I'm not sure I quite captured it properly in my pictures but it is so good in person.  The formula is amazing and applies like a dream.  I used two coats for my swatch.

Lines We Cross is a pink (warm) to bright purple (cold) thermal with green to pink shifting foil type shimmer.  Love, love, love this one.  I love all the colours in it (warm and cold) and the shimmer.  So pretty!  For the formula is great and easy to use.  I used three coats for my swatch but you can stop at two coats.

Past The Breakers is a bright blue jelly base filled with gold flakes, gold holographic glitters and iridescent flakes.  Even though the base colour is blue, this leans quite green because of the gold.  I love this one too!  I actually wore this one on for about four days and kept looking at it.  It's gorgeous and looks a million times better in person than my pictures.  My camera didn't like this polish.  The formula is also great and easy to use.  For my swatch I used three coats.

Thorn In My Side is a medium dusty purple/grey base filled with orange to green shifting iridescent glitters.  I'm beginning to sound like a broken record here but I love this one too.  The glitters are amazing and the base colour is gorgeous.  The formula is great and easy to use.  I used three coats for my swatch as I was finding it a little see through at the tips for my personal taste.  I also used two coats of top coat for this one.

Through The Hourglass is a blue base filled with green to purple shifting foil type shimmer and a silvery white magnetic effect.  I  really like this one both with and without the magnetic effect.  It's such a great colour and the formula is great too.  I used three coats for my swatch but only because I knocked my nails.  You really only need two coats for this one.

Whisper Of Desire is a dark red based purple with vibrant blue shimmer.  I'm obsessed with this one too.  As soon as I saw it it was instant love and I just had to get it on my nails ASAP (it was the first one from this release that I wore).  It's gorgeous and the formula is great.  I used three coats for my swatch but you can stop at two coats.

I'm only days away from having to narrow down my favourites for the year and this release really isn't helping me.  I mean how stunning is this month's new releases?
