Item details

Grasshopper with Cotton Candy Hair – Designed by Cate (
A bright grasshopper green linear holo polish with pink and blue flecks inspired by The Dresden Files

Cate writes:
To me, The Dresden Files series is the epitome of urban fantasy. It has something for everyone, from fairy tale creatures and Norse gods to vamps and werewolves. I'd love to one day curate an entire collection of Dresden Files polishes, with the help of makers like Amy. This polish is inspired by Molly Carpenter, Harry Dresden's wizard apprentice. Besides Dresden's nickname for her, Grasshopper, being the perfect excuse for needing another green polish, I've always had an affinity for Molly. Her desire to learn and help people combined with her stubbornness and innate magical talent get her into trouble more often than not, but those same qualities are part of what make her endearing. Over the course of the last few books she's traded her goth clothes, piercings, and blue and pink hair for a more conservative look and gone from a naive, rebellious teenager to assuming the mantle of Winter Lady of the Unseelie Court of the Fae and becoming second in line to Queen Mab - yes, that Queen Mab. Even so, when I think of Molly, the image that comes to mind is the Molly we first got to know, the goth girl with cotton candy hair.

Returns & exchanges

In the case of a breakage in shipping, please contact me with a photo of the damage and I will replace (or refund, if the polish is not available for some reason) the polish and shipping costs.

If you have a problem with the formulation, please let me know. Polish is an interesting medium to work with. Sometimes ingredients do weird things and while I do thoroughly test my ingredients, it's impossible for me to replicate every polish storage situation. I recommend storing nail polish in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.

Additional policies

My customs waiting list is very long right now and I'm not taking any additional custom orders right now. I welcome any and all general conversation about nail polish and polish creation.

I will happily discuss wholesale accounts with anyone interested!
