Emily de Molly Swatch and Review: Positive Contact

Emily de Molly Positive Contact (2 coats)

Hi guys! I hope you've had a good Hump Day. The week is flying by, despite being back from a short work week. Not much is going on here. I ordered a ton of items between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday, and some of them are making their way to me. One of these items is a new Tuft & Needle Mint mattress which was delivered today. I can't wait to see how we like it! Do any of you out there have one? Tonight I've got a magnetic polish from Australian indie brand Emily de Molly. I have a very strong "c" curve to my nail, so the magnetic line is a little more diffused on the sides compared to those with flatter nails. 

I applied my base coats and the first coat like normal. I then applied a thicker second coat to a single nail and quickly placed the magnet as close to my nail as possible for at least 45 second (or until my hand got tired) before moving on to the next nail. After all nails had 2 coats, I applied a quick-dry topcoat to each nail and placed the magnet over the nail again for about 15 seconds. It sounds like a long process, but it goes pretty fast once you get the hang of it. Positive Contact drew me in from the photos on the Emily de Molly website so you should check them out. It flashes between rose gold, blue, and purple depending on the angle. This one is definitely more beautiful in person. If you have flatter nailbeds, the magnetic line will likely be more striking. 

I'm very particular with the magnetic polishes I purchase and I don't have anything like Positive Contact in my expansive collection. If you don't mind a little extra work in applying your polish, I definitely recommend this one. It is available now for $10 (without the magnet).
