Philly Love's Lacquer's Awareness Polish

Hello and Welcome!!!

As you may know it is the month of October. This is the month when we all come together and spread awareness of cancer along with Lupus, Down Syndrome ect. Unfortunately members in my and my husbands family are going through radiation and chemotherapy as we speak but they are very very strong but even the strongest need tons of support. I lost my grandma to bone cancer January 6th of this year, A friend of mine lost her dad to cancer this week. I am torn. Cancer is everywhere and a cure needs to be found NOW. Hopefully one day a cure will be found and we wont have to go through life with cancer or watch our loves ones suffer through this horrendous sickness. Today I have 3 beautiful awareness polishes from Esther of Philly Love's Lacquer.Esther's grandmother had battled breast cancer so Esther has made a polish called "Fight On for Breast Cancer" to pay homage to her and every man and women who has battled with breast cancer. Some other awareness polishes that have been created by Esther of Philly Love's Lacquer are called "Keep Calm for Neuroblastoma and "Roll On for Ataxia Awareness".

Lets take a look at these amazingly beautiful creations.
This polish is called "Keep Calm for Neuroblastoma"
Neurolastoma is the most common extra-cranial solid cancer in childhood and the most common cancer in infancy, with an incidence of about six hundred and fifty cases per year in the U.S and a hundred cases per year in the U.K. Nearly half of neuroblastoma cases occur in children younger than two years old. It is a neuroendocrine tumor, arising from any neural crest element of the sympathetic nervous system. It most frequently originates in one of the adrenal glands, but can also develop in nerve tissues in the neck, chest, abdomen, or pelvis.
"Keep Calm for Neuroblastoma" is a sparkly teal jelly base with matte teal hearts, holo hearts,turquoise dots, matte white dots along with other turquoise glitters.I applied 1 coat of Keep Calm over 2 coats of Julep/Susie.
 ***NOTE***30% of total sales from Keep Calm will be donated to St. Jude's Children's Hospital for Research.

This is called "Fight On for Breast Cancer"
This is a light pink jelly base with a mixture of glitter of various sizes and shapes. Fight On for Cancer has a punkish flare to it which makes it fun and unique.I applied 1 coat of "Fight On for Breast Cancer" over SinfulColors/Cotton Candy.
***Note***30% of total sales from Fight On will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, to aid in research.

This is called "Roll On for Ataxia Awareness"
Esther of Philly Love's Lacquer teamed up with Kari of Midwest Lacquer Mamma to collaborate on an awareness polish for a cause that is near and dear to her. This polish above is what they created together.From what I have read on Kari's blog, her husband and his son and several of their family members suffer from Spinacerebellar Ataxia Type 2. Ataxia is a neurological disorder that attacks the nervous system and coordination and slowly gets worse over time. I really recommend you read Kari's story for yourself. Her story is something we all need to read and share with others and help any way we can.

Please take the time to read it.It would mean so much.
This is a Beautiful white crelly base with a mixture of light blue hearts and hexes, matte turquoise hexes(Small and Large), turquoise hearts and dots,aqua daisies,matte grey dots and white micro bars.I applied 3 light coats with HK Girl Top Coat.
***NOTE*** 30% of the total proceeds from this nail polish will be given directly to the National Ataxia Foundation 
International Ataxia Awareness Day is September 25, 2013

These polishes are now available in Philly Love's Lacquers shop. I hope you stop by and show your support.
