Grace-full Nail Polish Charity Shades

Happy Fri-yay readers!  To celebrate the start of the weekend, I wanted to share these beauties with you.

These polishes work a little differently to the auction polishes.  They can be purchased directly from the Grace-full Nail Polish stores, and are available now through until the end of October for the Australian store, or until sold out in the international store.  Like the auction polishes, they are also raising funds, with all profits going to SANDS in Theresa's home state. 

The two polishes are 'Sleeping Prince', a medium pastel blue with pink shimmer, and 'Angel Princess', a baby pink with silver-blue shimmer.


If you're worried you might miss out on an auction polish, these are a great way to support the cause.  I know that was my thinking last year!  Plus they are both absolutely stunning - it's a win-win situation!
You can purchase these at the Grace-full Nail Polish international store, or at the domestic store for Australians.   

Till next time,

International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month - let the wave begin

October is International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Sadly, still today one in four pregnancies end in loss, leaving behind devastated families. According to the Stillbirth Foundation Australia there are six stillborn babies born every day in Australia, a statistic that has not changed in decades.

Throughout the month of October, the Wave of Polish campaign runs two main events to promote awareness and support for pregnancy and infant loss, as well as to raise funds to support the charities supporting bereaved parents.
In the first event you are encouraged to paint your nails pink and blue to show your support. You will also help raise awareness of pregnancy and Infant loss. We are in our 4th year and have found many people encouraged to share their story, some for the first time, just through the simple act of sharing our nails Please don't forget to Post your manis on social media using the hashtag #waveofpolish and follow the IG @waveofpolish. October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss awareness day, this is the best day to show your support. If there is only one day you can paint your nails this month, please chose this date. To honour the little ones taken too young on the 15th of October at 7pm wherever you live please join in and stop a moment with us and light a candle. As the clock, strikes seven in different parts of the world a wave of light will wash over the world for those precious angels who we no longer share this earth with. We also want this to be a day across the nail community that shows parents we care, we remember, we are here to support you by sharing your nails.

The second event is a large auction of one of a kind polishes made especially for Pregnancy and Infant Loss awareness and not commercially available. We have many extremely talented makers from around the world that have created these polishes. The Wave of Polish auctions start on the 8th of October and finishes on the awareness day 15th the same time you light your candle, 7pm. Gorgeous hand blended nail polishes are on offer as the auction ships internationally to anyone in the world who registers. All the proceeds go to help the parents and families grieving the loss of their child by going to SANDS Australia and MISS foundation in United States. Details on how to bid on the gorgeous polishes offered are on our blog site or at our Facebook group

There are some scars that can’t be seen by the eye
Some wounds that will never heal
Some hurts that time will never mend
And broken hearts with pieces missing that will never be whole again.
