MeLissa Lacquer: Rebel With A Cause

[Part Two: see previous entry here]

Successful Woman really called to me when I opened up the package that Melissa sent to me. Its a beautiful hot orchid shade packed with micro shimmer. It applied like a jelly but was opaque in two coats and oh so shiny! Half of the profits from the sales of Successful Woman will be donated to Dress for Success, which promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire.

Melissa was inspired by a photo of Martin Richard's drawing for her Peace glitter topper. It includes glitter in the colors from his drawing: blue, yellow, black, hot pink and white in hex and square shapes. All the profit from the sales of this polish will be donated to the Richard Family Fund. I've worn two coats of Peace over black.

Hope has a milky white base with different sized pastel glitters and a few white hearts. Half of the proceeds from the sales of this polish will go to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. What an awesome cause to support! I chose to layer this polish over a white cream polish, but the listing for the polish says it is opaque in two to three coats. Since I was using a mini to swatch, I was not able to get the hearts out of the bottle.

Boston Strong was inspired by the slogan created after the tragedies at the Boston marathon. The proceeds for this polish will be donated to One Fund Boston who assists those affected. The polish contains a mix of blue, yellow and black matte glitter in hexes and squares. I wore two coats over Successful Woman for an added pop of color.

Each Me.Lissa Lacquer had a good formula, and I admire her inspiration and generosity of donating for each polish sold from this collection. Support your favorites and change the world! Available at the Me.Lissa Etsy shop and follow Melissa's brand on Facebook!
