Hey everyone - I know, a break from the 31 Day Challenge - so you KNOW this is important stuff!!
I was sent some information about a website the other day - and I just couldn't view everything via my blackberry.. Now that I'm home with my desktop computer and able to view everything, I knew this was something I would have to share with you all immediately!
The information I was sent is about a website called 'Adopt A Polish' and I was wondering what the what that was all about.. Then reading the concept behind the site.. I died.. It is amazing!!
"Every day, thousands of nail polishes are abandoned or abused. They are not sickly or old, they are fine new polishes, stuck on a shelf because they are forgotten or out of season. All they desire is to be used, and maybe taken for a night on the town in return."
Seriously? This is the first paragraph within the press release - I knew I was sold on the idea!
I love the idea of nail polish needing to be adopted.. I think it is a cute idea (NOW, do not get me wrong.. I don't think animals or children being neglected/abused is a 'cute' idea, but nail polish = cute) and one that I needed to share with all of you!
"One current nail polish, Charleston, held back tears while describing his life, 'I spent two years of my life stacked in a dark room crammed together with thousands of others just like me, hundreds pressing down on my shoulders at any given time. I'm a shimmer, and I have never seen the sunlight in my life. Oh and don't be started on CND Shellac, I just can't keep going as long, why would any women want me?'"
"Please don't let the agony go on any longer than it has to. The first round of adoptions closes December 31st. Apply to Adopt a Polish at http://www.adoptapolish.org/category/current-adoptions"
Basically.. What are you waiting for? Come up with a great application of why you'd make the perfect parent to a forgotten about polish.. Maybe you'll use that colour to adorn your nails and then go out for a picnic.. Or use it to go out with your blind date set-up.. OR.. Well, you get the idea! This is open to Canada and the US.
OH! This also introduced me to the website www.nailpolishcanada.com (they are sponsoring Adopt A Polish) - I went perusing the site.. UHM! Deborah Lippmann polish is on there. The only place I have ever found them was in West Edmonton Mall. I am kind of dying. They also have 'Bad Romance' still up for sale. This is going to be a very Merry Christmas for me!!
BUT! I know where I am going the next time I'm in Regina!!
