Hey Sugas and happy Wednesday! We are at the 16th day of May, midway through my #gograyinmay challenge and I wanted to do a quick check in. So far, so good! I have managed to do a different gray swatch each day AND post to IG! Don’t believe me, keep reading for a collage of days 1 thru 15
I also wanted to take a moment to thank all the ladies and gents, near and far, that have not only done a gray mani, but for all your thoughts, kind words, prayers and virtual hugs – they mean more to me than you know. Due to the amazing response of gray manis, I will be posting multiple collages at the end of the month on IG of those that took part in the challenge with me – rust me, they will know your socks off!
If you haven’t already done a gray mani, there’s still time! Keep reading to find out all the details and how you can help spread awareness, support the cause and treat yourself to some great nail polish and nail care items from 2 amazing indie brands!
For the full story of my dad, Michael, visit my original blog post, here.
May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month and the awareness color is gray, hence, #gograyinmay. For the past few years, I have openly shared my story about losing my dad to brain cancer on IG and invited everyone to join me in raising awareness, supporting one another and doing our part to fight this terrible disease!
I, have challenged myself to complete 31 days of gray manis for the month of May and I invite you to also do as many gray manicures (any finish, w/ or w/o nail art) and post to IG using caption #btam_teammichael2018 and tag me, @queenofnails83, in the post!
In addition to the gray mani challenge, this year, I am partnering with Jior Couture and EA Polish to raise funds for Chetan Bettegowda, M.D., Ph.D. at John Hopkins Cancer Research in honor of my dad. Each maker has agreed to donate 30% of their May sales to this organization and I have agreed to match their contribution. Be sure to use my discount code, KRYSX15 for 15% off your order with EA Polish.
