Emily de Molly Sleep Walking

The sun finally came out just a little, so time to switch up to a holo, and time to switch to something cool from all those earth tones.

Emily de Molly Sleep Walking is the first thing that's made me gasp with amazement in a while.  In the bottle, it's a rich sapphire blue, but as it's being applied the gorgeous teal-y jade green shimmer flashes to life.

The total effect most reminds me of the Femme Fatale holos that all had a gorgeous contrast shimmer, so whether or not you missed out on some of those, absolutely pick this up.  The formula was a little more simultaneously sheer and sticky that I like (2.5 coats are needed, but don't overwork it or you get dragged patches), but was utterly smooth under one layer of topcoat.  Cleanup was shockingly NBD for a blue this dark.

In the shade or low lighting, the jade shimmer sort of vanishes but makes the color lean a little more teal or slate blue.  The holo dust doesn't grey out the rich sapphire at all, though, and only a smidge of sunlight is needed to start the green flash and rainbow sparkle up.

I picked up my huge Stampholic 1 plate for it's cute image of Jack Skellington faces in a spiderweb, and used EdM's silver holo stamping polish for the design.

Rating:  this beauty is a fantastic 4 out of 5 stars.

Where to buy:  several stockists carry EdM, but you can also buy directly here.
