The Dance - Collaboration with me and Emily de Molly

Annnd lot 27 - this was my favourite offering last year and I think we've equalled it this year. There is a lot of meaning behind it so grab a cuppa 

This is The Dance a collaboration with myself and Hayley from Emily de Molly.
This year my daughter should be in her last year of high school here in Tasmania and at the end of the school year is a huge event for the teens called their Leaver's Dinner, similar to what I imagine a prom would be. So it's kind of one of those years for me, where it's noticeable that a big event should be happening in her life but she'll never get to do it - we'll never get to do it. I should be arguing over dresses and their appropriateness, sharing the excitement of who she will go with and finding that dream vehicle for her to arrive in. I knew I wanted this years collaboration polish to reflect all of that and in some small way give me a chance to be involved and to share with others, just like what would be happening if we had her here. In a way Hayley and I did have some angst with the perfect 'dress', what I thought I wanted just didn't work and maybe as with all Mums was a bit too young. After driving Hayley crazy (thanks Hayley) out of the blue she came up with this polish and we both knew she 'had' it. The Dance has a a darkened magenta base filled with colour shifting shimmer that changes from pink to gold, what teen girl wouldn't want that on her fingers? There are 10 numbered bottles of this available and then that's it, it will never be made again.

Now the name has two meanings, The Dance as obviously Grace would be off to her first formal dance and The Dance by Garth Brooks is a song I can really relate to and listened to so often in the early years. It's so true I could have missed the pain of losing our precious daughter but to do so would mean I never would have had the joy of having her in our lives.

Thanks for making it this far (lyrics below)

Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared 'neath the stars above
For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known that you'd ever say goodbye?
And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end, the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance
I could have missed the pain, but I'd have had to miss the dance
Holding you, I held everything
For a moment, wasn't I a king?
But if I'd only known how the king would fall
Hey, who's to say? You know I might have changed it all
And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end, the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance
I could have missed the pain, but I'd have had to miss the dance
Yes my life is better left to chance
I could have missed the pain, but I'd have had to miss the dance
The dance

Our 3rd beauty from Celestial Cosmetics

Our third polish is a collaboration with my friend Nicki from Celestial Cosmetics and me. It has a whole lot of meaning behind it, so bear with me. Since my son was just little when our daughter died he always used to say the first star of the night was Grace watching us. Love you to the moon and back is something that I always say to Zac and write to Grace. I know many other bereaved parents associate their babies with stars so this polish had to be made for Wave of polish. The name 2nd start to the right is from Peter Pan, a story I loved as a child, a story I loved sharing with Zac and one I'm sad I never got to share with Grace.

Now my ramblings are out of the way this is a gorgeous deep blue jelly packed with glitters in stars and dots to represent the moon and stars. It's a stunner and we are lucky enough that Nicki has made 7 bottles of this, so 7 lucky people will be able to have this polish. Only 7 though as it's a one off creation :)
