Emily de Molly- Tread Lightly [Swatch]

Today I'm excited to share Emily de Molly- Tread Lightly with you! This polish is from the Spring (April) 2014 release, so is pretty recent.

Tread Lightly has a soft, aqua base which looks a little more seafoam on the nail.  There are several sizes of circle glitter; the biggest ones are orchid purple and holographic. There are also a couple sizes of lighter pink, purple, and holo hex glitters.

Artificial light, two coats:

Window-filtered daylight:

Outside, shade:

I really enjoyed wearing this one! It's just a lovely, soft combination of colors.


Up close:

Formula: The crelly base is not too thick or thin, and the glitter distributes nicely over the nail. I didn't turn this upside down prior to application, and didn't have to fish too much at all for the largest glitters- one or two appeared naturally on the brush. It sets fairly quickly to the touch, so you don't have to wait too long in between coats.  I only needed two medium-thickness coats for opacity. I thought this was super nice for a dense glitter!


  1. This is so pretty especially with how the circle glitter look here. I've been loving crelly colors like this too.

  2. Oh! I love the large glitter in this polish. Very nice!
