Today I have a post that was supposed to go up yesterday, but I was so busy and not home long enough to even turn on my computer! This is Shooting Star from Rainbow Polish. This polish has a bit of a story behind it. The creator had a family member that had been robbed, which meant they couldn't work to support themselves. She created this polish to sell as a fund raiser, where all proceeds when to the family member. With help from all of their family, and the funds raised from the limited number of these polishes she made, they were able to give enough money so the stolen item could be replaced and the family member could get back to work! I am glad that I could help them out, and that I got this beautiful polish out of it! So here it is:
This is Shooting Star. It's a milky base with microfine, small circle, bar, hex and star holo glitters! I used 2 coats and everything came out easily, even the stars. It is shown with 1 coat of Seche. The formula was just right, and went on easily. I love this polish and it looks amazing in the sun! Sadly my camera was only able to capture little glimpses of the holo from the glitters. You can see this best on the star on my ring finger.
Here is China Glaze Fuchsia Fanatic, the color I layered Shooting Star over. I used 3 coats of this. The formula was a little on the thin side, but still fairly easy to use. Very pretty color, its just as the name suggests.
And now for some awesome news: Rainbow Polish has said that this polish will now be a permanent fund raising polish! From now until Oct 1st 50% of the proceeds for every bottle sold will go to help send a student from her sons school to Science Camp! I think that is really great, its polish with a cause. The recipient of the money will change every so often, depending on things that are going on locally around the creator or around the world.
