Cupcake Polish and Crystal's Charity Lacquers have teamed up to create a very special, gorgeously sparkly custom duo! These are limited edition polishes whose sales benefit OVC Pet Trust for research in the field of companion animal cancers. Take a look at the rest of my post for my review of these stunning colors and more info on this wonderful fundraising charity!
|Cupcake Polish Best Fur-iends|
Best Fur-iends is an ultra-shimmery cyan with a super-linear holographic effect and iridescent pink & violet contrasting shimmer. This has a such a beautiful array of colors, and looks very mermaid-like! The formula was flawless, with a smooth and even application. It looks semi-sheer at first but builds up nicely in 2-3 coats. Here I have on three coats and top coat.
|Cupcake Polish Furever Loved|
Furever Loved is a fluorescent orchid-pink shimmer with a strong holographic effect, tons of gold sparkle, and a subtle reflective, foil-like effect. The strong violet holo arc contrasts beautifully with the gold sparks, which are more visible in person. It's truly a magical, must-have color, and definitely one of my all-time favorite pinks! This had a superb formula that applied very smooth and evenly. It was also super-pigmented, and looked opaque in just 1-2 coats. Pictured here with three coats plus top coat.
These are both crazy-gorgeous, very special, one-of-a-kind colors, and their sales benefit an amazing cause. Many of us have been directly affected by cancer, and this fundraiser gives us the opportunity to enjoy something beautiful for ourselves as well as contribute to the fight against this terrible disease. Here is more information on how you can get these gorgeous colors, and the organization their sales will benefit, direct from Crystal of Crystal's Charity Lacquers:
To kick off 2016, we are welcoming two new brands to the Crystal's Charity Lacquers family. Along with Cupcake Polish, we are also launching a custom duo from Top Shelf Lacquer. These special polishes will launch at 5 pm PST/8 pm EST on Friday, January 15th and will be available through Sunday, February 7th. After that, both of these duos will be gone! This month, we are fundraising for OVC Pet Trust for companion pet cancer research. A portion of every sale of these special, limited edition polish will be donated to this cause.
On October 2nd, I very suddenly lost my kitty, Ana to a very aggressive cancer. It broke my heart and was sadly not the first time I've lost a furry family member to cancer. One of my childhood dogs was also taken by cancer. After Ana passed, I learned that others in our group here also had pets fighting cancer or had just lost their fur babies to the disease. It is with each and every one of them in my heart, that I hold this month's fundraiser. I chose this particular fund for our donation after doing much research. On their site, there is a paragraph that addresses donations and how funds will be used to further research into the fight and treatment of companion animal cancers. It ends with the following quote; "Not only will our pets benefit from this contribution, but also the knowledge gained will be shared with human research, for the good of us all." I love this because no matter if we're two legged or four, we are all connected. Cancer has affected me deeply, attacking both my human family, my furry family and myself personally. I dream of a day when cancer no longer holds any of us hostage, when it is powerless against our knowledge. For all of these reasons, I chose this cause and foundation.
Our polish names were chosen with Ana and all our furbabies in mind. Ana was one of my Best Fur-iends and even though she's my angel now, she will be Furever Loved.
The Cupcake Polish duo will be available through Sara's custom shop, www.cupcakepolishcustoms.bigcartel.com, for $15 per bottle starting Friday, January 15th at 8pm EST through Sunday, February 7th.
