Welcome back, reader! It’s another swatch! This is Emerald & Ash’s Construction Season, a throwback from their 2013 Road Trip textured polish collection. I’m wearing three coats without top coat.
Construction Season is a bright orange polish with a fine texture. Application was good; due to the textured effect, the polish is quite thick, and goes on in thick coats. I find this kind of consistency easy to work with, but I realize some people don’t. The texture is pretty smooth, and smoothness increases with additional coats. It mostly serves as a visual effect than a palpable one, so even the people who dislike textured polish may like this one.
So, when I was getting this post together, I noticed that Emerald & Ash’s website is down and the domain is expired. I know they were on hiatus for a while, but I thought they came back, and it’s sad to lose another maker. So many of them are closing up this year. It’s a terrible shame. I hope everything is going well for them.
Wow, Construction Site is soooooo bright! But lots of fun
Oh wow, that’s a bummer. I loved their cuticle oils. I haven’t bought any in years but the scents were awesome! This is a beautiful orange!
man, I miss these guys.
It’s been far too long since I’ve worn a textured polish!
A little too bright for me but I’d wear it on summer!!!
That’s a pedicure shade if I ever saw one!
I remember when this collection came out and just loved it!!! I hate it they just disappeared, I hope all is well with them both.
This brand is long gone. But I do like the polish! I miss wearing textures!
This color is SO stunning, sad to hear the maker is not in business.
I mean I’m not an orange fan but this is fun!
I’ve never tried a textured nail polish before. This looks so bright and fun! Too bad their site is down
I’ve never heard of this brand, but this is a great orange and the fact that it’s textured makes it even better. Sad to see so many indie brands close.
