30 Day of Colour: Emmily de Molly Dark crystal


It's a second week of daily challenge and today's color is black. I'm rarely excited about posting swatches, because my heart belongs to nail art, however today is an exception. I love  my swatches of Dark crystal. This polish was used couple times as a background for nail art, but I never wore it on it's own. It's a black polish how different it could be from other blacks? To me it's the most elegant and enchanting black polish. Millions of tiny holographic micro glitters sparkle on my nails as stars in the night sky. Even though this black jelly requires 3 coats, it's totally worth it.

Materials and Methods

Nail Polish:
  • Emily de Molly - Dark crystal (3 coats)


  1. I like this a lot what a wonderful backdrop for nail art.

    1. That's exactly how i was using it, but in this case batter to apply cream black underneath, so you can add only one layer of Dark crystal.

  2. I really like how tiny and subtle the glitter is, it looks both fun and sophisticated!

    1. It's really tiny Nesita, I was even thinking to call them nano glitter ;)
