Royal Flush - Emily de Molly The Amber Palace

I think this one was a gift from Jme for my last birthday!

[Bottle to nail: Emily de Molly The Amber Palace (2 coats)]
Isn't it such a unique polish! This is Emily de Molly The Amber Palace, which is described as a reddish brown base with iridescent flakes and gold holo microglitter.

To me, it's less of an amber, and I get more of a plummy-brown shade. These photos are of two coats, nice even formula and decent dry time.

As you can tell, it's quite a vampy shade, but the twinkly glitter and pops of blue and magenta from the flakies really brightens it up.

Here's an out-of-focus photo to show the sparkle from the glitter. All-in-all a great combination if you're after a darker mani with some oomph. =)

Velvet Mocha - [Emily de Molly LE82]

I have a beautiful thermal polish to share today.

[Emily de Molly LE82]
This is Emily de Molly's LE82 which is a thermal colour changing nail polish. You can see that LE82 is bright pink when warm, and a rich maroon-brown when cold. It has gold holo glitter through it, and dries matte. For reasons unknown, my pinky finger was colder than all my other fingers, so it didn't show the colour change as much in this photo, haha.

I actually did not realize LE82 was a thermal polish at first and thought that EV had given me an interesting maroon-brown nail polish, based on what I had in the bottle. So I had a surprise when it started changing colour on my nails!

Here's a funny inverse situation. I was washing my hands in cold water so my nails turned brown. I then breathed on the tips and with the application of my warm breath, the tips turned bright pink. Ah, colour changing nail polishes are so fun. Of course, this didn't last long because I eventually warmed up enough that the brown turned pink again.

I will say though that it's not very quick to change colour. It's odd, but it's winter now and my other thermal colour changing polishes tend to work really well in this weather because I tend to run hot, while the tips of my nails remain cold. But LE82 actually remained pink for the most part, until it was unusually cold. So, that's a little unusual. But LE82 applies smoothly and is a lovely colour in any case. I don't have anything like it in my collection.

Smooth Serpent - Glam Polish Dreamscape

Oh dear, I found these in my files... this mani is already 3 years old!

[Bottle to nail: Glam Polish Dreamscape]
This is Glam Polish Dreamscape, a duochrome flakie polish that shifts from green-to-gold with lots of extra flakie colours scattered throughout.

Unfortunately it was so long ago that I don't remember too much about formula and finish...

Hope you enjoyed the photos anyway! =p

Paradise Pink - Emily de Molly LE77

Hope everyone had a lovely long weekend! I've just got a quick one here for you today. =)

[Bottle to nail: Emily de Molly LE77 (1 coat)]
This is LE77 from Emily De Molly, a warm pink creme polish with silver holo glitter and iridescent glitter.

[1 coat: Emily de Molly LE77]
I think the first photo is most accurate colour-wise, the other two are a bit washed out. The holo is more of a scattered holo and the iridescent glitter provides a bit more interest without being too girly-toddler in-your-face pink rainbow, if that makes sense... !

[1 coat: Emily de Molly LE77]
This is a really great formula, nice, creamy and opaque in one coat with relatively quick dry time. This does dry slightly textured due to the glitter so be generous with topcoat. I'm not sure what I think about this as it's not really a colour I wear often, but I can't fault the formula!

Champagne Bottle - Dance Legend 09

It's golden time!

[Dance Legend 09]
What I've got here is Dance Legend's 09 from their Velvet Mini collection. It's a champagne gold nail polish that dries matte.

This one is an understated beauty. It's a very classy colour and looks like burnished metal. I really like the look of it and I'm amazed that it has lasted 5 days on my nails without chipping!
