Emily de Molly ~ Transpire



Emily de Molly ~ Transpire
Turquoise linear holo

I have always loved Emily de Molly’s holos! Both the quality and the holo effect is always living up to my high expectations. Transpire is no exception.

The formula is great and the coverage is good. Two easy coats it what it takes to achieve full opacity and the drying time is good.

I didn’t want to overwhelm this beautiful polish so I limited my nail art to an accent nail. The white polish is El Corazón’s Iron Hard 418/1, the stamp is from the stamping plate Mezerdoo36 and the stamping polish is El Corazón’s Emerald.

This is my final mani in the sun.


Here’s the same thing in the lightbox.


These are the things I used for my mani:


Transpire is a bit of a chameleon that changes colour depending on the environment. When I look at my nails right now, as I write this, they are definitely leaning more green than blue. When I go to the next room they show up more blue. Nice, I like that.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Linear holo
Overall impression: Wow, this is a fantastic polish!
Buy again: Yes

Cupcake Polish ~ Jolly



Cupcake Polish ~ Jolly
Purple jelly with holographic microglitters

Jolly is from the Candyland collection from early Summer 2017. It’s a part of a six polish collection, of which I bought three: Queen, Frostine and Mr. Mint. Click on the names to see the other two polishes.

The formula is equally good as it was on the previous two polishes, and so is the coverage. I used two easy coats for full opacity and the drying time was really good.

I stamped on it. I used the stamping plate Mezerdoo35 and I stamped with two stamping polises from El Corazón: White and Pink Neon. I applied a layer of Moyra’s stamping topcoat before I took my pictures.

Here’s my final mani in the sun:


This picture is taken in the lightbox. The holo glitter still glistens and I love that stamping gradient!!


Here’s Jolly alone in the sunshine. It’s two coats and no topcoat here.


These are the polishes and the plate I used for my mani.


I really like Jolly and her two sisters. Some girls have said that this collection isn’t super unique. I agree with that, but I am still really happy with the polishes. They’re gorgeous, and that’s what counts.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Jelly with holo microglitter
Overall impression: Very pretty, good quality polish

Cupcake Polish ~ Mr. Mint



Cupcake Polish ~ Mr. Mint
Hot pink jelly with holographic microglitters

Mr. Mint is from the Candyland collection from early Summer 2017. It’s a part of a six polish collection of which I bought three. I showed you Queen Frostine yesterday – click this link to see it if you missed that post. LINK

The formula is really good and so is the coverage. I used two easy coats for full opacity and the drying time was really good. It’s a really nice polish in all ways.

I placed a black star stud by the base of each nail, except for the ring finger. I placed a big skull on that. The stars are from a holiday in Hungary, the skull is from evilbay :D


Here’s my final mani taken with flash:


This picture is taken in ordinary daylight, no sun. The holo glitter still glistens! I’m wearing two thin layers of topcoat on the three fingers with the stars – to keep the stars in place :D


Here’s Mr. Mint alone taken with flash. It’s two coats and no topcoat.


Mr. Mint. Another polish with a name I don’t get! I would have expected that a polish called that would be mint green. I guess I’m not innovative enough, haha!

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Jelly with holo microglitter
Overall impression: Super pretty polish with a great quality
