ALIQUID Lacquer - See Spot Run (Limited Edition Charity Polish): Swatches & Review

press sample 

Hey, guys! I've got another really special post to share with you all today. You may recall that last year ALIQUID Lacquer released a charity polish (Puppy Love) in support of shelter dogs in the US. It was a huge success last year and so Alison has gone ahead with another charity polish this year! 

This is something near and dear to my heart because my dogs (yes, dogs! We've recently welcomed a new adopted pup into our lives) are both rescue dogs. All dogs need good homes and while it's fun and special to purchase a puppy from a breeder, I think it's also really important that people also consider adoption first. You will never have an animal love you more than if you adopt and save them. *steps off soap box* :p 

Anyway! Here is a little tidbit from Alison's release letter about the polish.  

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month! Last year, we released a limited edition charity polish to raise money for shelter animals. The fundraiser was so successful that we knew we would have to do it again this year! Keep reading for details and to learn why this cause is so important!

See Spot Run retails for $11 (full size bottles only) and will only be available in October. We will donate $5 from each purchase to the ASPCA! Each order will also include a free magnet featuring our dog Trudy's pawprint. We're aiming to collect $500, but we can only do it with your help!

About 3.9 million dogs enter U.S. shelters every year, and 1.2 million dogs are euthanized (800,000 of them pit bulls and pit bull mixes like Trudy). Adopt a Shelter Dog Month seeks to call attention to the plight of these animals and to encourage people to adopt dogs rather than going to a breeder. No matter your preferences, you're bound to find a rescue dog that fits perfectly into your home! Click here to read all about pet adoption!

The vision of the ASPCA is "a humane community in which all animals are treated with respect and kindness." Donations to the ASPCA support a variety of causes, including:
-Grants to shelters nationwide
-Spay/neuter and microchipping programs
-Adoption, fostering and relocation programs
-Investigation and seizure of abused animals
-Lobbying for anti-cruelty legislation

See Spot Run (LE) is a sapphire blue jelly with silver holo microglitter and small to medium circles in blue, pink, red, and silver. I like how vivid and fun and lovable this polish is! Kind of like a dog ;) I really enjoy this polish and even though it's not really a fall color, I think it's great for winter and into spring and summer as well. The jelly formula was easy to work with and though it's sheer for the first coat, the 2nd and 3rd make reach a nice opacity.

These will be available only through the month of October so don't miss out on your chance to own this polish as well as give a little back :) You can purchase the polish here
