Emily de Molly: Where boys fear to tread

Hello everyone!

I first saw this nail polish on The Crumpet, and fell in love with the dark pink color. But the name "Where boys fear to tread" is also fantastic. This is the first Emily de Molly nail polish I try. Emily de Molly is an Australian indie brand. She is famous for her round glitters, but I didn't expect this quality on her holographic nail polish. WBFTT is a very beautiful linear holographic nail polish. Although it's not as strong as the Halo Hues, it is a gorgeous linear holographic, and I was surprised by how well the holoness shows inside. But we had to change three bulbs this week, and the new ones are really bright, so I can't really compare with how the other holos looked inside. This is a one- coater. So on the left hand you can see what one coat looks like. On the right hand I used two coats. The reason why I applied a second coat, was that I had a bold spot on one nail, and that I felt that it showed that I had wrapped the tips, and that I was curious. Do you see the difference between 1 and 2 coats? Maybe the color is a bit deeper? I'm not sure. As usual with linear holographic nail polish, I've used a base coat for holographic nail polish and no top coat. The polish is very easy to apply. So the next photo shows one coat, no top coat, before clean- up. I managed to get a little tip wear the first day, but I'm not complaining, because I didn't use top coat, and this is a very pretty pink holo. The light sources are sun, shade, and my IKEA LED lamp. The first photos are taken outside.

This photo is too pale, but shows the underside of the bottle:

I was thinking about mentioning breast cancer every time I show pink nails this month, since October is breast cancer awareness month. But today my thoughts goes to everyone in Australia. I hope you're safe from the fires. So I'm just giving you this link where you can read about breast cancer, in this post.

A few days later:
Now I've applied the polish again, and can't wait to try my new Emily de Molly stamping plates. So I'll show you a few photos of this holo goddess with Seche Vite. It didn't dull the holo. Or what do you think? This is two coats+ Seche Vite:

On Emily de Molly's web site, you can look at her nail polishes and two stamping plates, and where to buy it. Here is the list of stockists. This polish was bought from Norway Nails, and according to Norway Nails Emily de Molly's products are 3-free and cruelty free. :-)



  1. Oh wow, what a beauty - and one coat - I love it :)

    1. Yes, it really is a beauty! :-) Yes, but when I tried it over a regular base coat, I needed two coats.
