Silly Bee's Chickadees Glitter for Good 2014

Provided for Review  
Hey guys! I have a new set of polishes from Silly Bee's Chickadees to share with you today. This set is part of her inaugural Glitter for Good line, I will let Melissa share with you her vision toward the bottom of the post. They will be available staring November 1st in Silly Bee's Chickadees shop. You will have the option of purchasing the individual full size bottles (for $10 each) as well as mini trio sets (for $15), which will include both polishes in mini size, and a bottle of gold beads.

Two coats
Violet/blue matte creme with gold micro-shimmer
Beautiful color! I love the complimentary gold to the blue toned violet base. This dries down to a matte look and for those that prefer shine, a layer of topcoat is a simple add.

Layered over Grace, Faith & Hope
Clear based topper of gold flakes
Even more gold with the flake topper, which pairs really well against the base. 



I didn't have a chance to apply the beads as I was swatching but I wore all both polishes and added the gold beads of this nail-of-the-day look. 


Gorgeous polishes AND for a wonderful cause, I wholeheartedly can endorse that!



ABOUT GLITTER FOR GOOD:

Glitter for Good is the driving force behind Silly Bee's Chickadees. I believe that everyone, regardless of race, creed, gender or sexual orientation deserves to sparkle and it is my hope that we will inspire others to do just that. 


Silly Bee's Chickadees pledges to donate a portion of all sales to organizations with a special focus on empowering and improving the lives of women, children and youth.

Since its inception, Silly Bee's has supported several worthy organizations including Ronald McDonald House, Cancer Research Institute, Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, SPCA of Central Florida, Vested Interest in K9s, and most recently Free Hill Primary and Infant School in Jamaica.

Each quarter, a different organization will be selected to benefit from Glitter for Good. There may also be limited edition polishes which will benefit special events.

As always, Silly Bee's Chickadees will continue to create the highest quality product while striving to bring joy to its customers. 

I hope you will support us as we launch this new initiative and vision. 

Glitter for Good. Because everyone deserves to sparkle.

Thank you for your support,
Melissa
ABOUT TUMAINI:


The 2014 Glitter for Good nonprofit: Tumaini Children’s Village
Through the rest of 2014, $1 from every bottle sold will go directly to support the good work of Tumaini. 


Tumaini, which means "hope" in Swahili, provides just that for children who may otherwise be living on the street and turning to crime and drug abuse to survive. The home is a safe environment where children can grow and learn to become productive members of society.

Founded in 2010, Tumaini is located in Soy, northwest of Nairobi, Kenya’s capital. Currently, the orphanage is home to approximately 70 children, ages 6 to 13 in six houses, each watched over by houseparents.

I learned about Tumaini through my sorority sister, whose teenage daughter volunteers there during the summer. I am continuously inspired by young people who serve to make our world a better place. Grace is one of those amazing, selfless young people. 

Of her experiences, Grace says, "I love helping out at the orphanage in Kenya and it makes me realize how blessed I really am and to never take anything for granted. These kids are so well behaved and so appreciative of what they have been given and I am lucky enough to get the chance to meet them. I see the smiles on these faces and I know they are in the right place and are grateful for what little they have."

Thank you, Grace, for being an awesome human and sharing your love of children with us! 

Glitter for Good and Tumaini Children's Village. 
Because every child deserves to sparkle.
