Literary Lacquers Tonight's Adventure: Raising Funds for the IOCDF

Press Sample

Good afternoon, dear readers, and happy hump day! I have a gorgeous new polish by Literary Lacquers to share with you, and I hope you love it as much as I do! Not only is is beautiful, it was created to raise funds for a charity. How amazing is that! Let's check out photos first and then I'll follow up with all the details. Ready? Let's do this!

Tonight's Adventure

Two coats plus top coat

Tonight's Adventure is a bright warm orange-coral holographic polish with flashes of pink microflakes. It was with Debbie Wolf DeMars, a fellow indie polish addict and created to raise money for the International OCD Foundation. Here is what she wrote about it:

Imagine you have this amazing friend. She’s super smart, the kind of smart that would be intimidating if she weren’t so down to earth and nice. So instead of feeling inferior you learn from her. The kind of friend who pushes you to be a better person, and pushes you to question what you know and what you stand for. Imagine she has a wicked sense of humor. When you are together you laugh deep in your belly and your eyes tear. She’s caring and genuine and you know if you needed anything she would be there for you. Now imagine she has a teenage daughter and that daughter has all the amazing qualities of her mother. She’s spunky, smart and incredibly sweet. Sounds awesome, doesn’t it? And it is! Except that this amazing young woman, in addition to being brilliantly gifted and wickedly funny, also lives with mental illness. Her name is Sage. She is strong and brave but the road is hard and there are many bumps (hospitalizations) along the way. It is a constant fight. As their friend you feel helpless. You feel their pain so deeply it hurts but you are at a loss as to how to help. This is me and these are my friends. During one such hospital stay, amidst my feelings of helplessness, I had the idea of doing a charity polish in Sage’s honor, to raise money for OCD, one of the mental illnesses from which she suffers. I reached out to Amy with the idea and she was immediately 100% on board. Not only was she on board, she offered to donate a generous $5 per bottle sold to the IOCDF (International OCD Foundation)! Thank you, Amy, for your thoughtfulness and generosity! Being able to do something like this makes me feel like we are helping not only my friends but the countless others out there who are battling OCD. Please consider purchasing a bottle of this special polish in honor of my courageous young friend, Sage.

I am swooning over this gorgeous polish- it is the perfect shade for summer! It photographed a little pinker for me that it is in real life, and the true colour is closer to that of a coral peony, the inspiration used to develop this stunner. Bright for the warmer weather but still with  a delicate and feminine look, Tonight's Adventure is sure to be a popular shade from the Literary Lacquers brand. The application was sublime, and I had no issues to report on today's post.

Each bottle will retail for $13, and $5 from each bottle will be donated directly to the IOCDF. Tonight's Adventure launches about midnight tonight at the Literary Lacquer etsy shop located here. This is a limited edition charity polish, and it will only be available for purchase through May 31st. You definitely do not want to miss out on this beauty! The best part is you can always look down at your painted nails and know you did a little good!

What do you think of this polish? Is it something you would wear this spring and summer? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
