Forces of Nature
I'm excited to show you these.. even though pretty much everyone else has already heard of these great Emily de Molly "Forces" polishes, they are new to me. I wasn't expecting them to live up to the hype... but I admit it. I love them.
Before I speak to each individual polish, I want to say something about the circle glitters in all three.
I was, frankly, expecting to hate them.
My nails are small, and typically, what I see with these large glitters is that they overwhelm my nails. These circles were the perfect size - I could even get 2 on some of my nails! I couldn't believe it. I REALLY couldn't believe that these polishes looked as good on me as they did in all the swatches I've seen.
First up, Oceanic Forces.
This is everything a teal jelly glitter polish should be. The jelly makes for light and dark areas, and the large and small holo and blue glitters distort the light to give differences in depth, just like an ocean bed.
Cosmic Forces is a dark purple jelly with holo glitters that flash pink, purple, and blue.
I was so surprised by the flashes of blue! That holo circle glitter on my pinkie is flashing the most beautiful cobalt blue. Awesome formula; beautiful polish.
Dark Forces is a black jelly with silver holo glitters that flash all the colors of the rainbow.
This was the only formula that gave me a little trouble - I needed three coats to even it out, and getting the circle glitters out of the bottle was a real hassle. I don't know why this one was difficult, because the other two Forces were easy and lovely formulas.
I can't believe how the circle glitters look so awesome and different in each of these polishes. Really great combinations of colors and textures in all three of these. I'm glad I finally caved and got all three of them! Emily de Molly is an Australian Indie, but she does sell through stocklists that ship to the US, like Llarowe.
Which is your fave?
