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.
October is International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Throughout the month we ask that you paint your nails blue and pink on a Thursday to show your support and raise awareness of pregnancy and Infant loss.
October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss awareness day, so if there is only one Thursday you can commit to painting your nails this month please chose this date. Around the world on the 15th October at 7pm people are asked to light a candle. Then throughout the time zones a wave of light is made in memory of the precious lives taken too soon. Let's also make October 15th a wave of polished hands showing support throughout the world. If you would like to do more days in the month that would be great too smile emoticon
In conjunction with the wave of polish campaign I will be holding an auction of one off polishes made by our amazing Australian Indies and also some gorgeous pastels from amazing Australian polish brands. The auction will start on the 8th October at 9am and finish on the 15th October. Visit http://waveofpolish.blogspot.com.au/ for all the details or you can bid at http://www.myminiauction.com/waveofpolish
1 in 4 pregnancies will end in loss, leaving behind devastated families. Please show your support and help raise awareness.
Our first auction polish is Teen Angel, as Grace would be a teen it felt right to go with a bright colour rather than a pastel polish. This is what I'd call a Raspberry Pink, it has a subtle linear holo and glass flecks so it looks fabulous in the shade as well as the sun. This is a one of a kind polish and won't be made again.
Grace-full Nail Polish's second auction polish is called Everybody Hurts and is a little darker than normal. I wanted a polish to reflect grief - it is dark and gloomy with jagged edges like the flakies. Through time there are sparks of hope like the ultra chrome chameleon flakies that pop through the darkness. This is a black jelly that leans to blue due to the UCC flakies that are shades of Blue, Aqua and Violet
The next auction lot from Grace-full Nail polish (me). This is So Little, So Loved - it's a periwinkle holo with a slight pink sheen
