Happy Wednesday! I’m blogging today from San Francisco! I had to fly up for a work conference, and since I have my laptop with me, I figured what better opportunity to squeeze in some writing!
Before I get to today’s post, I want to quickly mention that this Sunday I will be participating in AIDS Walk LA, a 10k charity walk/run to raise HIV/AIDS awareness and help support the amazing organizations in the Los Angeles area who provided much needed food, medical care, and services to people living with HIV/AIDS as well as educational and prevention programs to the community to reduce the number of new HIV/AIDS cases reported. This walk is important to me, as African-Americans and women are disproportionately impacted by the HIV/AIDS virus, and this is one way I help support HIV/AIDS awareness every year. If you have a minute, please drop a comment below to encourage and support me in this effort, or stop by my donation page and help me meet my personal goal to raise $500. $5 would be a big help!
On to today’s mani! The recent RAOK I received from a lovely friend included a polish from Rescue Beauty Lounge’s 2011 fall collection, Poco a Poco. Poco a Poco is a dusty pink polish with a gold shimmer. The color really reminds me of a more grey version of OPI Sparrow Me The Drama from this past spring’s Pirates of the Caribbean collection; memo to self to do a comparison post of the two later this week! Either way, Poco a Poco continues the tradition of the RBL exceptional formula, as this was very easy to apply. Below is 2 coats for full opacity. Take a look!
Of course I love Poco a Poco, and am happy to have it join my RBL collection. This was a great work-friendly polish and the subtle gold shimmer is stunning! Absolute love.
Poco a Poco is currently in stock and only available online at rescuebeauty.com I’ll be picking up one or two of her friends from the fall collection later this week at the RBL pre-order for the Bring-It-Back polishes. This pre-order will include the re-launch of past RBL faves (Mismas, Orbis, Anne, Scrangie, 360, and Locavore). The pre-order is a private event, so if you’re interested, please be sure to head over to rescuebeauty.com to sign up to on their VIP mailing list! You’ll receive instructions Friday morning via email on how to participate in the pre-order.
Make it a great day!
