Emily de Molly Sugar Coated Memories

Sugar Coated Memories was created by Hayley of Australian indie polish maker Emily de Molly especially for the "Sugar Rush" February 2017 edition of Polish Pickup. It is described as a bright red jelly filled with metallic silver flakes and silver holographic micro glitter. The color is a brilliant, intensely saturated, medium-toned variation of scarlet, similar to red-orange. Abundant, highly-reflective silver flakes read in bright hues of red, pink and orange from within the base and give the polish a foily, semi-metallic sensibility with a dappled visual texture that has tremendous light play -- gleam, glow, flash and sparkle -- interspersed with pinpoint prismatic sparks from the holographic microglitters. Fabulous!

Application was great! The consistency of Sugar Coated Memories is fluid and full-bodied with a medium consistency and a very even, self-leveling flow over the nail. Pigmentation is excellent -- it goes on so evenly and opaquely that you could easily wear it at one medium coat. Two deepens the color to match the bottle. Between pigment travel and sticky silver flakes, cleanup can get messy real fast -- ask me how I know! Best to go for as clean an application as possible and allow the polish a bit of dry-time before going in with the acetone-dampened cleanup brush. Sugar Coated Memories dries naturally in very good time to a slightly flat finish with a skosh of discernible texture from the components, easily smoothed by topcoat.

If you're after a high-energy, uber splashy look, here you go -- the very definition of eye-catching! The brilliant, saturated color and dynamic light play of the components make for a jazzy, flamboyant presence on the nail, like a glitzy stage costume -- sensational!

love,
