Emily de Molly Oceanic Forces

Hello all!

Today I have a more recent acquisition to show you guys, though it’s a polish that’s been out for a while: Emily de Molly’s Oceanic Forces! This is one out of a trio of polishes, the other two being Dark Forces and Cosmic Forces.

Oceanic Forces has a dark teal jelly base with various size holographic glitters all the way up to the amazing large holographic dots. The formula is decent and was not difficult to work with-the hardest part about applying this polish was getting the holo dots placed just so.

As you all may remember from when I reviewed a-England Saint George, my favorite mug in the universe is teal, and I love using it as a prop in teal polish photos!

Sorry about the low lighting in these pics-this is a combination of as bright as I could get our living room lights to go and the sun from this time of the year.

These pics were taken the day after I did this manicure, and I have one coat of a-England base coat, three coats of Oceanic Forces, a coat of Gelous and a coat of Poshe topcoats.

I managed to score all three of this trio together on a blog sale so I’ll be reviewing the other two sooner or later! You can pick up Oceanic Forces and its mates on Etsy if you’re in Australia. If you’re in the US, you can try Llarowe, MeiMei’s Signatures, or Nail Polish Canada.  For now, keep on keepin’ on ladies and gents-

All love, Allie.

A-England’s St. George

Just a quick update-things have been busy here! It’s down to -20F most days now, and with the cold comes a few household maintenances that have been put off for a bit too long.

The formula on this, like the other a-England polish I have (Dragon) was phenomenal. The polish is *very* pigmented, requiring only one coat to be opaque! It dried to a fine shine, though I slapped some Seche Vite on top because hey, I’m a mom, and my baby wakes up randomly and makes me smudge my polish a lot. HA. Sadly, the SV shrunk it up a tad, and so by day two my tips are showing. 😦

The scattered holo in this is very fine, and does not appear in normal lighting. Even in sunlight, you have to be paying attention. Just keep that in mind! And now, without further ado: photos!

You can really see the holo sparkles in the bottle here!

This matches my favorite mug!
