Emily de Molly | A Heartfelt Tribute

Emily de Molly makes some of the most delicate and refined shades around. I don't know if it is the packaging or the colors themselves...but I always feel so classy wearing these shades. And when her inspiration comes from the heart, it makes the polish even better.

I can't think of any other way to describe the inspiration for this duo, so I'll just shamelessly lift borrow what Ms Hayley posted in the Fan Group about this stunning duo.

Emily aka "Emmy"
stolen from the facebook group
Almost 13 weeks ago, my gorgeous girl Emily passed over the rainbow bridge. To say she has been missed is of course an understatement and I’m sure many of you can relate to the pain I feel. But then I remember that we had 16 amazing years together and all the times she made me laugh and how much joy she bought everyone who met her. She was a character, my Emmy.
In her memory I have created a duo.
The first is simply called Emmy, thats what I called her most of the time :) Emmy is a pale off white creme, with subtle gold shimmer and tiny brown flecks.
The second half is called All the Feelings. I’m not always very good at expressing myself, so its hard to put into words what I think and what I feel. The name says it all really. All the Feelings is a clear glitter topper filled with red to green colour shifting iridescent glitter.  Its super simple and its not the most original creation of mine but its my favourite glitter, so it seemed fitting to use it in her memory.
who is cutting onions in here?

Emmy
This is a creamy, rosy-toned bone color filled with the tiniest shifting iridescent brown flecks and a delicate gold shimmer. It is bright without being stark, and applies like it has never known that it was a whiteish cream. My only significant note about this is that if you are a serial "thin coater", try to go a little heavier. I used two slightly medium coats for these pictures and it was perfect.

All The Feelings over Emmy
The most lovely glitter topper of the Fall, right here. I am a long-time fan of these iridescent hexes, so I honestly can't be unbiased. I will never understand how Ms Hayley makes such a dense-but-smooth glitter. I suspect there might be something in the water on her side of the globe that gives folks a deft hand with glitters...because they are generally magical. For this otherwordly manicure, I used one coat over Emmy, and I felt like a damned unicorn.

This duo will be available on Thursday night in the shop as a duo and separately. But no fear! These are definitely not going to be limited edition.

Which one of these is your favorite? I can see both shades being very useful for winter.

  1. I've had pets cross the rainbow bridge, and this is such a sweet tribute to Emily. Both shades are lovely, and it is an honor for something so close and personal to be shared with the polish community.

  5. Awww, these are so sweet and beautiful. Saying goodbye to furry members of the family is always difficult and I can see why people have remembrance lacquers created for them. <3

  8. This is a wonderful way to pay tribute to a loyal pet. They came out beautifully and your swatches are gorgeous! I've lost many pets - just recently our family cat passed, and now my parent's place is completely pet-less... it's so very strange and I really miss her. So I appreciate this duo!
