Emily de Molly Cosmic Forces

This is a very popular polish at the moment, so I consider myself quite lucky to have been able to buy a bottle from Llarowe at her last restock. And it's sister polishes Oceanic Forces and Dark Forces! Cosmic Forces is a mixture of pink and holographic glitters (including some huge circle glitters) in a dark purple jelly base. I took my whole hand photographs in quite poor light, so it ended up looking rather darker than it might in sunlight.

Here's a shot of the glitters in the bottle. The polish isn't quite so densely packed with glitter - there's quite a bit stuck to the side of the bottle, but this gives an idea of the range and complexity of glitters in the polish.

I used a thin coat of Butter London HRH as a base for this mani - HRH is near enough the same colour as the base of Cosmic Forces and I wanted a solid base so I could wrap my tips and paint a neat edge. I used two coats of Cosmic Forces. There is a LOT of small glitter in this polish, and after two coats my nails were looking quite bumpy, so I used two coats of my usual glitter tamer, Gelous, to smooth this out, before finishing off with a coat of Seche Vite. The end result is very smooth - just be aware with this polish that you will probably need more topcoat than you think! Also, I had to fish around for the big circle glitters - I didn't get any out at all on the first coat so I got an orange stick, scraped the glitters off the inside of the bottle then gave the whole lot a good stir and shake......... a lot more came out on the second coat!

I haven't broken my middle finger nail, I just seem to have got a rather odd reflection on that nail. Must be all that topcoat. lol!

Here are a couple of macros to show the detail  of the glitters on my nails

I'm not quite certain I like this polish as much as I was expecting to. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it, the formula is good, it's full of glitter and it does what it says on the tin. I think I'm just not in a purple mood............ I'm sure I'll like Oceanic Forces or Dark Forces better, since teal and black are much more my sort of colours than purple!

I purchased my Emily de Molly Cosmic Forces from Llarowe (international shipping);  if you are in the UK you can also buy  Emily de Molly polishes from Sally Magpies. Emily de Molly polishes sell out very quickly, so if you want them you really need to watch out for restocks.
