Hey y'all! Today on the blog I have a super special post to share with you! If you remember a month or so ago, I posted about Kent Hills, my sister's boyfriend who had a stroke at the very young age of 16. I am happy to report that Kent is on the mend and getting better every day! I kept asking myself how I could involve the nail community that I love so much to help the family in some way and decided to ask Megan from M Polish if she would make a charity polish for Kent. She agreed and helped us create this beautiful custom, You Are My Symphony. My sister wanted a black-red polish with subtle holo shimmer and that's exactly what Megan created for us. The name comes from Kent telling my sister that their relationship is like a symphony. (Barf alert!) So let me quit rambling and show you the polish!
You Are My Symphony looks red in the bottle, but more black on the nail except in certain lights. While the holo is subtle, it adds something special to the polish when the light catches it. The red pays homage to the red stroke survivor ribbon in addition to being one of Kent's favorite colors. You Are My Symphony is a stamping polish primarily but can be easily used as a regular polish as well and will be opaque in one coat as a regular polish. I had no issues with application or self leveling when I used it as a regular polish. Stamping with it, I had no issues with pick up or patchiness of the image. Each image was crisp and clean using my Creative Shop Stamper and the Cici&Sisi Holiday 2014 plate. I stamped it here over Lorelei Lacquer Laugh Often and topcoated with KBShimmer Clearly On Top fast dry topcoat.
Megan has graciously agreed to pay 50% of the proceeds from each bottle sold of You Are My Symphony directly to a GoFundMe set up for Kent by his family. You Are My Symphony is extremely limited edition, only 150 bottles total have been poured and it will not be restocked. If you'd like to pick up a bottle, it launches today at Noon CST at mpolishes.com! And if you'd like to donate directly to Kent's GoFundMe (to help with medical and recovery expenses), please click HERE.
