Emily de Molly ~ Imperfect Harmony



Emily de Molly ~ Imperfect Harmony
Periwinkle subtle linear holo

Imperfect Harmony is beautiful, period. It is from the second Holo Grail box from April 2014, the one that was called Meet the Makers pt. 2. I only bought the two first boxes. There weren’t any colour clues back then, so you only knew which brands the box contained, not which colours. It’s a relatively expensive box too, and I just hate it when I end up with polish I’m never going to use. This second box contained four polishes: This one, a beautiful magenta, a brown (ugh) and a very very pale mint green (ugh again). So basically I paid for four polishes, and I’m ever only going to wear two of them. So even though I like surprises in the shape of mystery boxes, then I still have to feel that I get value for my hard earned bucks!

Back to Imperfect Harmony: The formula is good and the polish covers in two coats. The drying time is average. The holo effect isn’t as strong as I prefer it, but it’s there. Take a look at two coats and a thin layer of topcoat taken with flash:



The colour is really pretty, I like it a lot!


Here’s a daylight picture. The colour is still nice!


I wanted to make a dotticure and I wanted the dots to be shocking pink and white. But I couldn’t get the pattern right in my head so I ended up stamping on it instead. I found a swirly motif on Moyou London’s stamping plate Princess Collection-14 and I stamped with a pink polish from Coolcos with the number 05. I sealed it all with another layer of topcoat, and here is my final mani with flash:

I really like Emily de Molly’s polishes and I really like this one even though I would have loved the holo effect to be more in your face.

Are you a fan of mystery boxes yourself?
