With all the publicity surrounding Breast Cancer Awareness month, most people aren’t aware that October is also Depression Awareness month. Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer holds an annual fundraiser benefitting I Need A Lighthouse, Inc. I Need A Lighthouse, Inc.’s mission is to “significantly reduce the loss and suffering from teen and young adult depression, suicide, and suicidal behavior through educational programs and community partnerships.” This is a cause that is very near and dear to Julie (the owner of BEGL)’s heart.
This year, Julie will be auctioning off limited edition Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquers plus donations from other indie brands such as Alter Ego, Northern Star Polish, Monster Polish, Ever After, Superficially Colorful, Girly Bits, Paint Box Polish, The Polish Bar, Chaos & Crocodiles, SuperChic Lacquer and Hypochondriac Polish. Today I have a beautiful polish from one such donor, Chaos & Crocodiles!
I’m new to Chaos & Crocodiles. I’ve admired their beautiful holos on Facebook but never personally owned any. The polish I have here is named Storm Clouds and Rainbows, two coats of a moody slate blue holographic with gold shimmer and pink/purple glass-flecks. It applied effortlessly in two coats.
The auction will be hosted via Julie’s eBay shop starting 10/31/2015 and will last for 4 days. 100% of the money made during this sale will be automatically donated to I Need A Lighthouse via eBay’s Giving Works platform. Shipping will start on 11/7/2015 and Julie will announce the final amount raised at the end of the auction.
After seeing how fantastic Storm Clouds and Rainbows turned out, I will definitely be looking at more Chaos & Crocodiles! I’m also excited to see what other brands are bringing to the auction, especially since it’s for a great cause.
