October's here! Where did September go? Honestly, it was here and gone like *that*. If you weren't aware, October is Adopt a Shelter Dog month! In honor of this, Alison of Aliquid Lacquer made a special polish to raise money for the ASPCA.
For a beautiful polish and more information on this great cause, keep on reading...
"You might know that the lovely lady on our polish labels is Trudy, our five-year-old rescue pit bull mix. Trudy is such an irreplaceable part of our lives that we can barely remember life before her! In honor of Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, we decided to give back by creating a limited edition charity polish that will be available through October only! Keep reading for details and to learn why this cause is so important!"
bright green leaning teal
pink to purple and gold shifting flakes
scattered holographic sparkle
three thin coats
one coat Seche Vite
The iridescent shifting flakes in this polish are beautiful. It was so hard to capture how they look in real life. As you can see, they're packed in there.
With three thin coats, this polish built up nicely and didn't give me any problems with application.
About 3.9 million dogs enter U.S. shelters every year, and 1.2 million dogs are euthanized (800,000 of them pit bulls). Adopt a Shelter Dog Month seeks to call attention to the plight of these animals and to encourage people to adopt dogs rather than going to a breeder. No matter your preferences, you're bound to find a rescue dog that fits perfectly into your home! Click here to read all about pet adoption, and click here to learn more about pit bulls!
The vision of the ASPCA is "a humane community in which all animals are treated with respect and kindness." Donations to the ASPCA support a variety of causes, including:
-Spay/neuter and microchipping -programs
-Adoption, fostering and relocation programs
-Investigation and seizure of abused animals
-Lobbying for anti-cruelty legislation
Puppy Love retails for $11 (full size bottles only). We will donate $5 from each purchase to the ASPCA! We're aiming to collect $250, but we can only do it with your help!
Aliquid Lacquer can be purchased in the shop.
