Emerald & Ash Review

Press Sample
Emerald & Ash is a handmade brand of lacquer available exclusively online!  I have swatches of the brand new Road Trip Collection, featuring textured, black light/UV reactive polishes inspired by the sights of taking a road trip. First up is Bump, a bright yellow based on the road signs indicating general warnings. I layered this over Zoya Purity for opacity. This orange toned yellow is filled shimmer and, like all of the polishes in this collection, dries to a smoother finish than any of textured polishes currently available.





Next is Five Over, inspired by the speed limit signs that we always add just 5 more miles per hour to! This is a pure white shimmer jelly with the same textured finish.





Below is Construction Season, a neon orange shimmer jelly that comes to a textured finish.





Next is California Stop, a blue red jelly that shimmers and dries to a subtle, textured finish. Again, this is layered over Zoya Purity!





Next is Are We There Yet?, inspired by the green information road signs that let you know where you're going and how long it will take to get there! This is a bright, true green jelly with blue undertones. This shimmers and comes to a smooth, textured finish.





Below is Bike Lane, reminiscent of night driving and bike riding!  This black shimmer dries to the same smooth-to-touch texture.




Finally is Stretch Your Legs, inspired by the blue service signs everyone is hunting for when they are hungry, ready to stretch, or hoping for a bathroom break! This is a shimmery blue, glowing jelly.






All of these polishes and many more are available on emeraldandash.com, with 11mL bottles at $6.50 and 16.5mL bottles at $8.50!
