Keep S’Myelin – Multiple Sclerosis Awareness

Hi beauties!

Today is a special day. Because as of today Keep S’Myelin is available at the shop. Why so special? Well, because I designed this polish to raise awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. €1,00 of every sold bottle will be donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

MS is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.
There is as yet NO CURE for MS…

Help find a cure before MS gets on my last nerve!

In advance, thank you from the bottom of my heart to help raise awareness!

Love Nailz: The Sabrina Duo

iusb_760x100.11800620_ew6iHappy Friday beauties!

Louise, the genius behind Love Nailz and I again joined forces which resulted in this duo nail polish: Sabrina Duo (in case you didn’t know already: that’s me :D), which consists of two polishes called Hope and Care. Louise created this duo to raise awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. Isn’t she the best?! Thank you sweetheart! This means a lot!
This duo is now available through her Etsy shop for $12.00. All profits from the sales of this polish duo will be donated to Multiple Sclerosis Research. Specifically MS Society. il_570xN.459643540_oad0
Here’s my swatch of Care, a stunning red/purple duo toned shade with red micro shreds. This is opaque in two flawless coats. I used three here without top coat. It’s perfect for layering too, to create a totally different look. Obviously Louise knows exactly what I love 🙂

And below you see Hope, a mix of ultra fine holographic silver, red and black glitter. This is three easy coats on it’s own. The picture is taken in daylight which reveals to me a unique look. I have never seen a polish like this before. A generous coat over a black base will bring out the holo effect of the fine glitter. See Louise’s swatch at the top of this post. sabrina duo2Isn’t this the most amazing way to raise awareness? And even if you’re not in to polish I bet you can make someone who does very happy! So, what are you waiting for? Head over to Louise’s Etsy shop and get yourself this beautiful polish duo for $12.00.  Remember: all profits from the sales of this polish duo will be donated to Multiple Sclerosis research.

And if you prefer a donation you can do that here.

Thanks so much!

Lacquered in Orange – orange nails for Multiple Sclerosis Awareness

This post is all about Multiple Sclerosis Awareness. MS week is March 11-17. I thought it would be a great idea to arrange an event that involves orange manicures for MS Awareness. Read all about it below and please join! 😀

Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease.

I was diagnosed with MS myself a year ago. I’ve learned a lot the last year and I am sure that I will not let this ruin my life! Because what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger 😉

Lacquered in Orange” -guidelines-:

  • Orange is generally associated with MSA (with an orange ribbon). As such, I would be delighted if you show me, and everyone else, your  orange manicure(s) in a ‘MSA’ blog post(s).
  • This event starts today and ends by the end of this month.
  • There are no ‘rules’! If you like to include nail art or not is of course entirely up to you.
  • My sweet brother in law created the ‘logo‘ above. Please add it to your blog post(s). Also, feel free to use it on (the sidebar of) your blog or any social media.
  • Please add your work(s) of art to the Inlinkz Collection below so that everyone can admire it/them.
  • It would be nice if you (hash)tag your orange manicure(s) with #MSA and #LacqueredInOrange, so that everyone can admire your work(s) of art!
  • More important: spread the word! 😀

Here’s my orange manicure:msa

Last by not least:
My dear friend Louise that you might know from her blog: Mommy Loves Nail Polish and her Etsy Shop: Love Nailz, is joining the MS walk this year with her family. A big shoutout to you Louise! Love ya girl!
The MS Walk is a community event that brings together people touched by Multiple Sclerosis. At the MS Walk, people affected by MS connect with others who understand the daily realities of their disease. Every year over 65,000 participants in more than 160 communities across Canada gather at the MS Walk to engage with each other and raise vital funds for people living with MS.
