Our 3rd beauty from Celestial Cosmetics

Our third polish is a collaboration with my friend Nicki from Celestial Cosmetics and me. It has a whole lot of meaning behind it, so bear with me. Since my son was just little when our daughter died he always used to say the first star of the night was Grace watching us. Love you to the moon and back is something that I always say to Zac and write to Grace. I know many other bereaved parents associate their babies with stars so this polish had to be made for Wave of polish. The name 2nd start to the right is from Peter Pan, a story I loved as a child, a story I loved sharing with Zac and one I'm sad I never got to share with Grace.

Now my ramblings are out of the way this is a gorgeous deep blue jelly packed with glitters in stars and dots to represent the moon and stars. It's a stunner and we are lucky enough that Nicki has made 7 bottles of this, so 7 lucky people will be able to have this polish. Only 7 though as it's a one off creation :)

For those new to wave of polish here is our description

October is International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Throughout the month we ask that you paint your nails blue and pink on a Tuesday to show your support and raise awareness of pregnancy and Infant loss. If you would like to do more days in the month that would be great too :)

October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss awareness day, so if there is only one Tuesday you can commit to painting your nails this month please chose this date. Around the world on the 15th October at 7pm people are asked to light a candle. Then throughout the time zones a wave of light is made in memory of the precious lives taken too soon. Let's also make October 15th a wave of polished hands showing support throughout the world.

In conjunction with the wave of polish campaign I will be holding an auction of one off polishes made by our amazing Australian Indies and also some gorgeous pastels from amazing Australian polish brands. The auctions will run for a week finishing from 7pm on the 15th October. Sneak peeks of auction polishes will be appearing here and on the Facebook page as they become available. All proceeds will again be going to SANDS Australia and you can read about them on the tab above.

International bidders are welcome. 

1 in 4 pregnancies will end in loss, leaving behind devastated families. Please show your support and help raise awareness.

I will set up an inlinkz code for blogs and we will use#pregnancyandinfantloss and/or #waveofpolish on Facebook and instagram. Also join us at our facebook page to share your manis and thoughts https://www.facebook.com/groups/waveofpolish/
