I was over the moon when I received MeiMei Signatues Newsletter announcing the launch of Emily de Mollys in her shop - finally another chance to get hold of some lemmings of mine (YESSS I succeeded). The one I wore first Emily de Molly Cosmic Forces:
Cosmic Forces is a sheer purple jelly loaded with round glitter. If worn on its own it would certainly require three coats at least to achieve decent opacity. I wanted to keep the translucent feel of Cosmic Forces therefore I started out with one coat of Picture Polish Violet Femme, a very bright purple jelly and added one coat of Emily de Molly Cosmic Forces. Most of the glitters literally jumped on to my nails - only the saucer sized glitters were reluctant to leave their crib and had to be fished out. Despite the amount of glitter in this polish it dried nearly smooth and I could finish my mani with no more than one coat of Butter London Hardwear Top Coat. The removal required some elbow grease though.
I am a BIG fan of anything from A England and of course I could not pass Excalibur (revamped):
I applied two buttery, velvety coats of Excalibur (revamped) over Zoya Anchor Base Coat. I used Butter London Hardwear Top Coat. I spare you more text and rather add some more pictures as they say ALL about the beauty of the new Excalibur:

This post ended up being so long, that I split it into two parts.
I ordered Emily de Molly Cosmic Forces with MeiMei Signatures and A England Excalibur (revamped) with Llarowe.
Now on to part two....
