... Wave of Polish ... In memory of Charlotte and Bailey xxxx

Something special today and close to my heart.  Loss of a child is something that we don't talk about much as a society even though so many of us have been touched by a life who was taken from the world too soon.

October is International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Throughout the month we ask that you paint your nails blue and pink. October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss awareness day. Around the world on the 15th October at 7pm people are asked to light a candle. Then throughout the time zones a wave of light is made in memory of the precious lives taken too soon. Let's also make October 15th a wave of polished hands showing support throughout the world

1 in 4 pregnancies will end in loss, leaving behind devastated families. Please show your support and help raise awareness"

Today my nails are in memory of my two beautiful nieces Charlotte and Bailey Anne who sadly passed away shortly after entering the word.

Two Sisters, Two Butterflies. Flying together forever.

The polishes I used are Face of Australia Boys 'n' Berries, Zoya Barbie, Bourjois 06 Rose Cupcake and piCture pOlish Black.

There is currently an international auction for polishes over at Wave of Polish with all money raised going towards the work of Sands Australia who are there to support grieving parents in their time of need. There is also a donation link on the Sands page if you would like to contribute funds towards
