Pretty & Polished Breast Cancer Awareness Duo!

Good morning, readers! I have a really gorgeous duo polish set to show you today from Pretty & Polished! It's for Breast Cancer Awareness and is made up of a shimmer and a glitter topper. The best part of this duo is that its being sold to raise money for a non-profit organization, as well as raise awareness for breast cancer!

Chelsea of Pretty & Polished is donating all profits from these duo sets to Little Red Door of Delaware County. It was this non-profit organization that was able to get her a test within days of finding a lump in her breast when she had no insurance. Thankfully, everything was okay with Chelsea, but this is a cause very near and dear to her heart because she has lost a couple of people to it.

Some bottle shots:



First, I'm going to show you the base color, You Are Beautiful, on it's own. It took 3 coats to full opaqueness and it is full of gorgeous shimmer! It was very easy to apply and I had no clean up! Shown without top coat.


You can see in this macro that there are teeny bits of darker pink as well as a gorgeous shimmer throughout!


And here is the duo together! One coat of BCA over the previous 3 coats of You Are Beautiful. BCA has 2 different sizes of pink holo hexes, as well as teeny purple glitters. Gorgeous topper! I used one coat of top coat and the glitter was smooth to the touch!

I love these two together!

The sets will be available at $20 for a full size set and $10 for a mini set, with all profits going to the non-profit organization Little Red Door of Delaware County. It's Chelsea's way of showing appreciation to them after being her support and help. 

Also, Chelsea is opening their office/shop to the public tomorrow and will be accepting donations and giving the duos out in exchange for donations on LRD's behalf through October! Because her family has a history with many kinds of cancer, she does what she can for non profit organizations like LRD because they are the ones making a difference in our everyday lives. 

Chelsea is opening up her Etsy shop tonight at 8 pm EST. She will have a limited amount of the Breast Cancer Awareness Duo as well as the Fall Collection, Halloween Collection, Color Changing polishes, and several polishes from her regular line.
