I Link It: Work/Play/Polish & Fear No Beauty & Polished Girlz Monday 30 December, 2013
When Leslie from Work/Play/Polish invited me to be a part of her holiday blogging for a cause for Polished Girlz, I was on board 100%. Check out the holiday nail art and give back!
Some people just warm my heart. One of them is Leslie Henry, from Work/Play/Polish. See, this holiday season she decided to give back by inviting a bunch of esteemed bloggers (myself included!) to create festive nail art, which she would post on her site. For each post, she’s donating $10 to Polished Girlz. What’s Polished Girlz? It was started by the most go-getter 10-year-old (now in her teens) out there, Alanna Wall, who believed that bringing a little nail art to kids with special needs or frequent hospitalizations would raise their spirits. (PS: It does!) Not only that, Polished Girlz teaches girls the importance of hand washing so that they can keep the infection rate down. All in all: It’s pretty darn amazing. Polished Girlz is always accepting volunteers as well as bottles of polish, so please do visit them and see how you can get involved.
So, as I mentioned, Leslie invited me to be a part of this Blogging for a Cause, and here is my holiday nail art contribution to Work/Play/Polish. It’s a spin on candy cane nail art, derived from a vintage candy cane poster I came across. I gave it a little bit of an edgy twist by painting my base black. Please give it a read here and check out the amazing work of Work/Play/Polish blogger Leslie while you’re at it!
