Emerald & Ash Review: Magic Bananas, Titty Sprinkles & Elevendy Seven

Good afternoon!  I've got a post for a great brand that I haven't had the pleasure of trying out yet.  But now that I have I can happily say that I think Emerald & Ash is pretty darn fantastic!  The 3 lovely polishes I have to share with you today are from the brand new Life In Color collection which will release tomorrow for pre-sale (7/10) at 9am MDT.  The 10 ml bottles are between $8.50 - $9.50 each.  There is also a plethora of cuticle oil in the shop so if you are an addict like I am you should check that out!  I highly suggest you give Emerald & Ash a try, you will love them!

I started off with Magic Bananas.  Why?  Because I loved the name and the color of course!  Magic Bananas is a lime green base that is literally packed full of gold shimmer.  There are also darker flecks in there but I can't determine if they are dark green or black.  Maybe gunmetal?  Whatever color they are they add a ton of interest to the polish.  I am also a fan of the foily finish.  Formula and application were both great.  I used 3 coats of Magic Bananas and 1 layer of topcoat.  






Up next is Titty Sprinkles.  This name made me laugh out loud.  Again, I don't know the story behind the name but it's a gorgeous polish!  This shimmery purple base is loaded with blue, pink, purple and gold shimmer.  Titty Sprinkles was pretty sheer on the first 2 coats and I ended up using 4 coats to build it up to complete coverage.  Aside from being sheer, the formula and application were both great.  Titty Sprinkles has the same foily finish as Magic Bananas but I didn't use topcoat this time.  






I have to say I saved the best for last here.  I thought Elevendy Seven was just another grassy green shade but with the heavy hand of gold shimmer it really is a stunning green polish. It's really a fresh shade of green.  Elevendy Seven also has a nice helping of blue micro flakies.  Formula and application were both fantastic on Elevendy Seven.  I used 3 coats and 1 layer of topcoat.
