Emily de Molly: February Releases

Thursday, February 09, 2017 Ashley K 0 Comments


Hey y'all! Today I've got the new Emily de Molly shades that will be releasing this month! I'm really excited about this collection, it's super gorgeous! There are six new shades releasing this month and this collection definitely has something to offer everyone! Let's jump right into the swatches then, shall we?

Distant Moon (indoors with daylight bulbs)
Distant Moon is charcoal taupe linear holo with a strong copper/bronze flash. I really love the way this polish looks on me! Definitely right up my alley and the formula on this is excellent! Super creamy and fully opaque at two thin coats. Shown below is two thin coats with a glossy top coat.

Escape Artist (indoors with daylight bulbs)
Escape Artist is a spring green that leans yellow with a strong gold shimmer. This color really surprised me with how nice it looks on me. Yellowish colors of any sort tend to pull terribly on me. This one doesn't though and that makes me tremendously happy. This applies smoothly and is fully opaque in two coats. Shown below is two coats with a glossy top coat.

*Disclaimer* The macro for this is slightly color inaccurate and looks like a darker green. I think this is due to it not picking up the gold shimmer as much and the lighting being slightly darker I turned off one of my lamps for it because the photos kept getting washed out or had a horrible glare. The green you see in the other two photos is an accurate representation of the polish.

External Links (indoors with daylight bulbs)
External Links is a bright cobalt blue jelly with shifting iridescent glitters and an aqua shimmer. This is the only jelly of the bunch this release and it's a stunner! Formula was good on this one too, but the glitters can make application a bit tricky at times if you struggle with glitter placement (wait for each coat to DRY before doing the next - this helps so much I swear). I did three thin coats for this one instead of two just to make sure I had full opacity in photos. This would probably be fine opacity wise by most people's standards at two coats, but I'm neurotic like that. Shown below is three coats plus two coats of top coat. Those iridescent glitters are topcoat hungry.

Looks Can Kill (indoors with daylight bulbs)
Looks Can Kill is a rose gold with a strong green/gold shimmer. This was another surprising one for me. I wasn't sure this one was going to look goon on me either and it ended up being one of my favorites from the collection! Another one with excellent formula, this is creamy and fully opaque in two coats. Shown below is two coats with a glossy top coat.

The Tenth Running (indoors with daylight bulbs)
The Tenth Running is a baby blue with various holo glitters and a pink shimmer. I love this polish, it's so pretty and delicate looking. Application was great on this one too, no issues with glitters or anything. Applied smoothly and was opaque in two coats. Shown below is two coats with a glossy top coat.

These were scheduled to release for everyone yesterday, but the shipment for the US distribution was delayed and thus the release date for US/International orders has been delayed as well.
