Emily de Molly December 2020 Releases - Swatches & Review

 PRESS SAMPLE

December...it still seems so bizarre to me that it is December already.  Seriously where has this year gone?  My concept of time is completely off - I'll blame all the lock downs for that.  Soon it will be time for Christmas decorating which I am super excited about.  Do you know what else I am excited about?  New polishes from Emily de Molly!  I'm guessing you are excited too or you wouldn't be here.  Right, less chatting and more swatches...

 



Before I Forget is a light turquoise blue crelly with metallic copper glitters.  This polish reminds me of the old school indies and I am totally here for it.  I love the base colour and the glitter.  They work beautifully together.  The formula is great and easy to use.  For my swatch I used two coats.

Blur The Line is a bright orchid purple base with blue and red iridescent flakes.  This polish is amazing and one of the many reasons why I love Emily de Molly.  It's seriously a gorgeous polish.  I also love that it does look different in various lighting.  I was actually questioning if it was a thermal or not.  It's not - I tested it to triple check.  Anyway, the formula is also awesome and is opaque in two coats.

Double Cross is a black jelly base with copper/gold/green iridescent flakes.  Big fan of this one too.  The formula is great and easy to use.  I used three coats because I love the depth of the third coat but you can stop at two coats.

Fall Back is a murky green jelly with silver metallic flakes.  I know that Halloween has been and gone but I think this polish would make for some awesome Halloween nail art - or just as a plain mani.  This polish just says Halloween to me.  The formula is also great and easy to use (I am sure I say that about all of Hayley's polishes but honestly they are always so good).  For my swatch I used three coats but you can stop at two.

Final Answer is a dark emerald green jelly with assorted iridescent flakes.  I love both the colour and flakes in this one.  It's stunning.  I did find this one to be a little on the sheer side, especially on the first coat but it does build up.  I used three coats for my swatch.

One Look is a dark blue base with a subtle blue to purple foil type shimmer.  LOVE this one.  The shift is very subtle but you can see it in person.  My camera struggled to pick the shift up.  The formula is awesome and so close to being a one coater.  I think on short nails you could easily get away with one coat.  For my swatch I used two coats.

Shakedown is a mustard yellow with metallic glitters.  This definitely isn't my sort of colour but I do like the glitter in it.  Formula is great and easy to use.  I used two coats for my swatch but question if I should have done a third.

Something Special is a very pale pink crelly with silver holographic micro flakes and iridescent flakes.  I love this one.  It's gorgeous and super girly.  The formula is great and easy to use.  I did find it to be a little on the sheer side (but that is to be expected with it being such a light colour) so I used three coats for my swatch.
