Once I started looking at indie polishes seriously, I started
One of the brands carried by Llarowe that caught my attention was Emily de Molly. As I searched for swatches of her shades I stumbled across an interview with the creator of this brand on the More Nail Polish blog. Imagine my excitement realised this was a) an Aussie brand and b) I could order her polishes directly from her etsy store.
I ordered 3 shades from her store (trust me I could have ordered a tonne more) and eagerly awaited my nail mail delivery. The 3 shades I ordered were Somber Party, Black Forest and Studded Jeans which totaled $36.30 including postage. These certainly aren't the cheapest shades but in Australia her polishes are still cheaper than Revlon, Essie and OPI if you go and buy them in the stores (crazy right???).
Black Forest is a little sheer for me so I would recommend putting it over a base of black creme. The other 2 were opaque in 2 coats. I'll be sure to feature these in some upcoming NOTDs but the swatches look exactly the same as the bottle shots above (except for Black Forest which seems to have a sheer black jelly base). The packaging, formula and brushes of these polishes are spot on. Given how quickly these polishes arrived, the quality of the packaging and the products I purchased I definitely have this brand on my radar now.
If you live outside of Australia you can also purchase her polishes on Llarowe as stated above. So pleased to be able to give an Aussie brand some love too.
