This month Crystal’s Charity Lacquers teamed up with Girly Bits Cosmetics to create two beautiful custom polishes in support of the Terry Fox Foundation, which raises awareness about and money for cancer research. More details after the swatches.
All swatches are two coats plus one coat of Girly Bits Cosmetics What a Rush Quick-Dry Top Coat.
Keep Calm, Terry On
Keep Calm, Terry On is a deep blue crelly base with a royal purple lean, filled with gorgeous red and blue shimmers throughout. This polish was inspired by the Terry Fox Foundation colours.
Fox Trot is a lilac holographic polish with pink to blue shimmer.
These two polishes are available to order from September 1st at 12noon EDT until September 17th at 11:59pm EDT at www.girlybitscosmetics.com.
$2.00 from the sale of each bottle will be donated to Crystal’s run in the Terry Fox Run (which is happening on Sunday, September 17th).
If you aren’t familiar with Terry Fox and his foundation, he was a Canadian athlete, and later, cancer research activist who battled bone cancer. In 1980, after having his leg amputated, he ran across Canada (east coast to west coast) to raise money and awareness for cancer research. Sadly he was forced to stop after 143 days and 5,373 kilometres (3,339 mi), and passed away shortly after. The annual Terry Fox Run, first held in 1981, has grown to involve millions of participants in over 60 countries and is now the world’s largest one-day fundraiser for cancer research; over C$650 million has been raised in his name.
Crystal’s Charity Lacquers holds custom nail polishes for various charities and as mentioned above, she herself is running in this year’s Terry Fox Run. If you would like to make a donation to her run, please visit http://www.terryfox.ca/CrystalWeber
