I recently came across a new polish line called Colors For Hope and I instantly fell in love with the polishes and mission behind them. I was actually on a no-buy at the time that I found them, but I broke down and bought a couple because I LOVE what they're all about! Clinton's Club, the organization that began Colors For Hope, was founded after Clinton Milliken was diagnosed and later passed away from Medulloblastoma, a form of brain cancer. However, as their website states, "while Clinton may have lost his battle with Medulloblastoma, his fight is not over." Colors For Hope donates 100% of the proceeds to children (and their families) fighting cancer. They name each polish for a child who is/has battled cancer and they also share small bio's about each child on their Facebook page. Today, I have swatches of No Jo and Pray 4 Tay. Take a look!
This medium blue creme is so gorgeous! In person its slightly darker, but this picture is fairly close to how it appears on the nail. It had decent opacity and went on like butter!
Now...take a look at the little one who inspired this shade!

"This was the amazing Noah. Noah was a spunky 5 year old who this world lost in 2011. Noah has DIPG and was from Wilkesboro, NC. Noah and Clinton were St. Jude Warrior buddies of the best kind. We just know they are off feeshin somewhere now. Noah's color for Hope is the best shade of light blue, and called "No Jo""
Pray 4 Tay
AHHH! Lime green jelly, heck yes! I'm absolutely loving this one...yes, it's sheer, but over another green or white it would be AWESOME. I can't wait to try some fun jelly sandwiches with this one!
Meet Tay, the beautiful inspiration for this beautiful polish =]!
"Taylor is 17 years old and is currently a patient of Vanderbilt."
I hope you've fallen in love with these colors and this awesome organization, too! You can get these for $6 each plus shipping (Just a heads up...you may have to email them regarding the shipping. They've had a few bugs with Paypal over-charging people for shipping costs, but they are offering refunds. Shipping did take a little while for me, but I received my polishes within about 2-3 weeks of ordering.). Check out their site here to see more polishes and purchase information. Also, become a fan of their Facebook page here!
Have an awesome day!
P.S. - I have no idea why the text in this post is so small...forgive me =P
