Swatch & Review: Enchanted Polish Congratulations

Hiya!

Today I have the lovely Enchanted Polish Congratulations from the Time to Pretend collection. Congratulations is a gold/red/orange multichrome with a strong linear holographic effect.




I applied Congratulations in 3 coats (I think!) and topped with Essie Good to Go. I actually wore this mani for my 21st birthday dinner, as I felt it was appropriate :)
As much as I love holos and multichromes, photographing them is my weak point. I feel like I can never accurately capture a polish's beauty if it is either of those 2 finishes. Hopefully my photos can give a hint of how pretty this polish is in real life!

Have you got any EPs?

Swatch & Review: Emily de Molly Bo Peep

Hi everyone!

Today I have one of my favorite polishes so far: Emily de Molly Bo Peep. I knew I wanted this, ever since it was posted on the Emily de Molly Instagram page as a prototype. Bo Peep is a gorgeous light teal-based polish with yellow, coral, and purple glitters. I haven't seen a polish like this before, and love how unique and gorgeous it is.



The yellow circle glitters give it such a candy-like feel. Love! Also I couldn't leave well enough alone and decided to splat on a coat of Matte About You. Here are the results...


I can't decide if I like it better matte or glossy! Which do you prefer? Do you also own this gorgeous polish?
