Emerald & Ash Hold On Swatches & Review
Today I have a polish from Emerald & Ash's 2nd anniversary collection. These shimmery toppers look somewhat plain in the bottle but they come alive when layered over a base colour.
Hold On features small turquoise flakes and purple to green shifting shimmer in a clear base. I layered it over Essie Turquoise & Caicos, a light turquoise creme. The formula was very easy to work with and dried smoothly. It does dry to a matte finish though so I added a glossy top coat to really bring out the shimmer. In bright light the shimmer is dominant but in lower light the turquoise flakes take center stage. Photos show one coat of Hold On over Essie Turquoise & Caicos with one coat of Essence Gel-Look top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.
Emerald & Ash should be re-opening soon (after recovering from a flood in their workshop). You can still check them out and build your wishlist on:
