Paint them Pink - Help raise breast cancer awareness!

As you might know, October is the Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the colour pink is the signature colour for this campaign.
To me it's important to help supporting the fight against breast cancer and to raise breast cancer awareness!


"Paint them Pink" is a small campaign using my blog to show only pink nail polishes during week 42, October 15th until October 21st, in order to raise breast cancer awareness and to help support the research in breast cancer.

I'm asking all you other laquerheads out there to send me photos of swatches of pink nail polishes, and if you do, a donation will be made based on the rules below:
  • A donation of $1 will be made to the National Breast Cancer Foundation for every qualifying swatch of a pink nail polish.
  • Send your swatches to me by e-mail to: missjezzlan@gmail.com and include the name and brand of the polish (or polishes) you have swatched and, if you want to, a short review of the polish. (If you have a blog you can include a link to it if you want to.)
  • During this week (Oct 15th - Oct 21st) I will publish as many of your swatches as I can here on Litte Miss Nailpolish - hopfully ALL of them!
Seeing the screen “pink out” would be quite a show of support!

The earned amount will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation during the final week of October and I will write a post about it in this blog.

You can start e-mailing me your swatches on Monday October 8th, and the last chance to send your swatches is Sunday October 21st. Please make a note in your calender NOW! :)

Please don't use old swatches. Take a few minutes and and paint your nails pink while sending a thought to all the women in the world who are fighting breast cancer now.

 

I hope you consider participating and also helping me to share this post.

Please leave a comment if you plan to participate in this campaign
- and please do! All you have to do is to paint your nails pink! :)


Please consider to paint your nails with a pink polish which helps to support the research in breast cancer. :) OPI, China Glaze, Essie, Orly and Mavala have special breast cancer awareness collections and polishes which a part of each sale goes to support the research in breast cancer.

Thank you,
Little Miss Nailpolish.

(Due to limited fonds the maximum donated amount will be $150)

    1. Du kan skicka in dina swatches från 8-21 okt. Allt eftersom eller alla på en gång. Det gör du som du vill!
      Ta gärna ett lack per mail annars blir det svårt för mig att administrera allt :)

  7. These are cute ways in supporting breast cancer awareness. these small things that we do to support cancer alternative treatment centers for cancer patient is one of the most significant approach.
