When Emily de Molly released this stunner as part of their 2019 Halloween Trio, I just knew I had to have it in my life! However, I didn’t pick it up until Emily de Molly’s Boxing Day sale and I’m SO GLAD I did. This polish is so fun and quirky and simply beautiful. The two other polishes in the trio – Hazy Situation and In Madness We Shall Reign – are beautiful too but Dead or Alive is just too beautiful, you know?
The Emily de Molly website describes Dead or Alive as a bright ultramarine blue with pink to green shifting iridescent flakes. For some reason my images show the blue as not being overly saturated – let me tell you Dead or Alive is way more blue in real life! I’ve made it look purple, ha! The iridescent flakes are just perfect in this polish, they simply glow and add real depth to the polish.
Application was great, with only two coats needed and then a top coat of Seche Vite. I wore this for three days and I didn’t have any chipping at all.
