Review: Emily de Molly Black Forest!
I’m suuuuuper pumped to be able to share this polish with you all today. I have been lusting over Emily de Molly polishes ever since I first stumbled across her Etsy shop earlier this past Spring. Sadly for me, she is based out of Australia and the turn around time for shipping nail polish from AUS was a staggering 3 months! And that’s if it showed up at all. As much as I loved her polishes, that was just too risky for me and I just came to the belief that I would never own a ‘de Molly’ polish. And after a while she stopped shipping internationally altogether on her Etsy page.
Then Leah Ann of Llarowe came to the rescue! She started to stock Emily de Molly! And my nails rejoiced, haha! I immediately snatched up Black Forest because it was at the top of my DO WANT list for months. ^_^
Emily de Molly – Black Forest
Emily de Molly Black Forest is a BEAST! This super black jelly is chock-full of multi-sized iridescent green hex glitter. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life! I decided to layer 2 coats of Black Forest over 1 coat of black (A England Camelot), and oh-my-glob-you-guys, it’s beautiful!
The polish was easy to apply and I didn’t have to fish for glitter at all. I added a coat of Gelous before adding my top coat to get a super smooth finish. But you may not even need to do that. I didn’t wait for it to fully dry to see if it had any bumpy texture before adding my TC.
Sorry guys, I could not get a decent macro shot of Black Forest to save my life! I took about 10 macro shots and this was the best one from the lot. Bah.
I love Black Forest and I’m so happy that there is a way to acquire Emily de Molly polishes internationally now! The way I feel about Emily de Molly is the way I feel about Pokemon, GOTTA CATCH ‘EM ALL!
Emily de Molly polishes can be purchased from her Etsy Shop for residents of Australia only. Outside of Australia your current options are Llarowe or Shoppe Eclecticco, who both ship worldwide! Pricing ranges depending on the E-Tailer, so check each individual shop for pricing and shipping charges/policies. ^_^
