Going blue for Autism Awareness Month mani #12

Today is April 30th, and while it is the last day of Autism Awareness Month, we should all remember to support the multiple causes out there that fight each day to find solutions to help those with Autism lead healthy lives.

This will be my last blue mani for Autism Awareness Month and I am so excited to end with this amazing polish.

Today's mani was created using OPI Taylor Blue with an accent of Lynnderella Angel Whisper.

Taylor Paige Storch's life was cut tragically short at the age of 13 after a skiing accident. Yet through that tragedy she was able to give life to others through the gift of organ donation.

Taylor’s organs went to a number of different people in need: her heart to a 39-year-old mother of two in Arizona; her pancreas and one kidney to a 49-year-old husband and father in Colorado; her other kidney to a 33-year-old man in Colorado; her corneas and liver changed two other lives in other parts of the country.

Taylor’s Gift Foundation was created to honor Taylor’s many talents and gifts, and especially her ultimate gift: life for others.

Taylor's Gift and OPI teamed up to create this polish in her honor and to bring more awareness to organ donation.

I am excited to say that this is my very first OPI polish. I have plenty of nOPI but I am so glad that my first is honoring a cause that means so much to me.

We decided after our daughter Caris passed in 2011, to donate her organs in the hopes of saving another family from losing their child.

I wear this color proudly and feel a special bond with it, and Taylor's parents. I strongly suggest your visit their website at www.TaylorsGift.org to read more of her story.

Going blue for Autism Awareness Month mani #10

My current mani for Autism Awareness Month.

I did a jelly sandwich!

One coat of Lacquerhead Polish You Glow Girl, one coat of Lumina Lacquer 1000 Julys and another coat You Glow Girl to top it off. 😍 This is so much more stunning in person!

Going blue for Autism Awareness Month Mani #9

Hello! It's been a hectic week for me so I haven't been able to share my beautiful creations with you!

But this is a gorgeous blue mani that I am proud of :)

I used L.A. Girl Matte Sky Blue which is an absolutely perfect matte polish. I had never tried the L.A. girl line. A friend of mine was able to pick me up a lot of their mattes and a few others. Matte polishes are my favorite- if you didn't know ;)

I topped this beautiful sky blue off with Lynnderella Mixed Feelings which is brand new from her line with the same name. You can get Lynnderella at www.lynnderella.com - she has my absolute favorite glitter bombs. This was no exception.

Another blue manicure for Autism Awareness Month: Maybelline Summer Spash topped with Lynnderella The Bride Turned Blue. I added an accent of Loreal New Money topped with Loreal Green for a Day. I love this bright springy combination! :))

Hi! :)

I decided to use Lynnderella's Forget You Not again, in a slightly different way: matted! And I LOVE how it turned out! I hope you do too!

This is over Sinful Colors Rain Storm.
