Hi everyone! Tonight, I have 3 new Smitten Polish charity polishes that are launching tonight at 11 PM CST along with her brand new What a Punny Autumn Collection. I have more details after the jump about these polishes and what organizations they will benefit. All of these charity polishes will only be available during the month of October, so get your hands on them while you can!
Black Mamba and Poach Busters are two charity polishes that will benefit the Black Mamba Anti-Poaching Unit. These polishes will be available throughout the month of October, and $3 from each bottle sold will be donated to the Black Mamba APU.
More details about the Black Mamba APU from Smitten Polish:
Black Mamba APU was founded in 2013, and is the first anti-poaching unit of its kind, since the majority of the teams are women. Black Mamba APU focuses not only on the physical prevention of poaching, but also on environmental education within their communities, as well as a social upliftment program that aims to address unemployment and skills development within South Africa.The Black Mamba APU was the recipient of the UN's Champions of the Earth Award in 2015. For more information on this groundbreaking organization, please visit www.blackmambas.org.
Black Mamba is a black linear holo with holo microglitter. Formula was very nicely pigmented and opaque in 2 easy coats. This is such a rich, true black and the holo microglitter adds ton of sparkle. If you've been searching for a true black holo that isn't grey, this one really fits the bill.
Poach-Busters is a grass green linear holo with added holo microglitter. Formula was again, superb, with full opacity in 2 easy coats. Ahhh...such a perfect green! I love it so much! I'm a green hoor, so I was excited when I saw it in the bottle and even more so when I got it on my nails. It's a must have for green lovers!
The next polish is a Hella Holo Customs exclusive polish, so you must be a member of that group on Facebook to purchase it (see details on Smitten Polish's Facebook page about joining). In a month focused on breast cancer awareness, Noelie decided to bring awareness to male breast cancer. 20 % of the proceeds from the sale of In October, We Also Wear Blue will be donated to the Breast Cancer Foundation.
In October, We Also Wear Blue is an a deep aqua-leaning blue jelly filled with holo microglitters. Formula was terrific and I got full coverage in 2 easy coats. This blue is GORGEOUS and really hard to capture on camera. It's more aqua in real life than my photos show (I tried really hard to adjust it!). I only got two photos that were close, so I'm sharing those with you. I wore it for a few days before I took it off...it's just beautiful!
Smitten Polish is available from their Big Cartel Shop as well as from these international stockists. Be sure to follow Smitten Polish on Facebook and Instagram for updates on restocks and new collections. Thanks for looking everyone!
