Our long-time readers might remember that back when we first started this blog there were about 10 of us working together to review polishes we bought. Over time, people have moved on, found new hobbies, etc. but we are all still very good friends and chat regularly about nail polish. Crystal is one of our founding members.
So, when we saw that Crystal had organized a really cool charity event to raise money for two causes very near to her heart, we asked if we could help spread the word.
Crystal approached indie nail polish brands and asked them if they’d be willing to create and donate a polish that could be used to raffle off in exchange for donations to either The Terry Fox Foundation (cancer research) or the SPCA Paws for a Cause event. For every $10 you donate to either cause, you receive a chance at winning one of the amazing polishes from indie brands. These are not polishes that have been or ever will be available from the brand itself. They were created specifically for Crystal’s fundraiser.
So far, the list of revealed indies participating is:
- Bitch by Jaclyn
- Echoes Polish
- Eat. Sleep. Polish.
- Fair Maiden Polish
- Parrot Polish
- Joy Lacquer
- Stardust Polish
- Spell Polish
- Ever After Polish
- Heather’s Hues
- Smokey Mountain Lacquers
- Nire’s Desire
- Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer
- Glittering Elements
And because Crystal is so awesome, she’s allowing My Lacquer Cabinet the exclusive to reveal the Fair Maiden Polish colour created specifically for this event. Here’s a sneak peek at the cancer research polish, Save the Ta-tas.
Ohhhhhh! Ahhhhhhh! Isn’t it gorgeous? All you need to do to get a shot at owning this beauty is donate $10CAD to the Terry Fox Run (link below). For other sneak peeks, join the Facebook group.
Here is where you can donate to the Terry Fox Run or the SPCA Paws for a Cause. For every donation that is made today, August 11, 2015 with a note that My Lacquer Cabinet sent you, we will match dollar for dollar up to $100 per cause.
