Monet's Garden has a slightly teal-leaning green jelly base filled with lots of multiple sized hex glitters in various shades of green, red and purple. There are also some green holographic hexes plus gold microglitter. I couldn't really capture it, but Monet's Garden is really sparkly irl. The name is perfect in my eyes, especially in the macro shots Monet's Garden looks like a pond with water lilys.
Formula was great, I used three coats for opacity and had no issues with application, all glitters came out of the bottle willingly and spread easily. For a smooth finish I added one coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and one coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer.
Emily de Molly polishes are available on Etsy (Australia only), at Llarowe, at Shoppe Eclectico, at Mei Mei's Signatures and at Norway Nails.
You know how much I love this polish and Claude Monet's artwork. You really rock this polish and I think you choose the perfect time to wear it - nothing to cheer-up a dreary Monday like one of those sparkly sunlight filled Emily de Molly's - have a great start of the week :-)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Christine, i wünsche dir o e guete Wuchestart :-)Delete
Very interesting - there is an amazing depth in this!ReplyDelete
Yes, in my eyes, EdM used the perfect amount of pigments with this one, opaque enough so you can wear it alone, but still so sheer you can see all the glitterr through all layers...Delete
Oooh yeah, I can see the inspiration for the name of the nail polish, lovely!ReplyDelete
Thank you Melissa, I'm glad you like it!Delete
I love this polish. This is one of those examples of the name of a polish fitting the look perfectly. <3 The Impressionists weren't my favorite art school, but this polish is quite another story. :)ReplyDelete
I'm glad you like it. So you don't like the Impressionists, but you do like the impressionistic polishes ;-)Delete
Wunderschön :) wie machst du das eigentlich immer mit den Glitzerlacken? Lackierst du eine Pell off base darunter? Oder entfernst du den Lack ganz normal? Nervt des dann nicht mit den ganzen Partikeln?ReplyDelete
Vielen Dank! Manchmal benutze ich den Peel Off Basecoat, aber meist die Folienmethode: Wattepad mit NLE tränken (ich zerschneide es zuerst in kleine Stücke, damit ich weniger brauche), Alufolie drum, 10min einwirken lassen, und der Glitzer rutscht wie von selbst vom Nagel. Bei normalem Ablackieren mit Rubbeln würde ich wohl durchdrehen und Schreikrämpfe kriegen... ;-)Delete
This is a gorgeous polish! I love all of the colors in it.ReplyDelete
I'm glad you do, I love it, too :-)Delete
Sweet polish! :)ReplyDelete
Vielen Dank, Tabea!Delete
Wunderschöner Lack, die Tiefe ist einfach der Hammer *_*ReplyDelete
Freut mich, dass er dir gefällt, ich finde ihn auch ganz toll <3Delete
Wow! That's a really beautiful mix of glitters and colours! Love how it really looks like a garden in a bottle and on your fingers too! What a beauty!! ♥.♥ReplyDelete
Thank you, everybody seems to love it, it's good to know I'm not the only one ;-)Delete
