The Auction Has Closed

Bidding Has Closed For The Charity Auction

I wanted to do a quick post to let everyone know that bidding has closed for the auction. I am in the process of adding up totals for all winners and will be emailing everyone tomorrow, Monday September 10th. If you are a winner, expect to receive an email from me at some point tomorrow with your total, and where you can send payment.  
I want to thank EVERYONE that participated in this auction...whether it was bidding, donating polish, or simply emailing to say you were sending your support. It has been an AMAZING week, and I couldnt be more grateful to everyone. I am so excited that we are able to help such a dear woman, and she is eternally grateful to all those who have offered help.
Again, I'd like to offer a special thank you to the ladies who so graciously donated items to the auction, Leah Ann LaRowe of Llarowe, Kim Snyder of Overall Beauty, Pam Heil of Girly Bits, Jody Alu of SoFlaJo, Sandy Gallo of Dandy Nails, Dolly of Dollish Polish and Lynnderella. None of this would have been possible without your contributions!
My eyes are sort of going crossed from staring at the computer screen, so I'm going to bid you all goodnight. And again THANK YOU!!

Polish for a Cause, A Silent Auction for a Dear Friend

Polish for a Cause:

A Silent Auction for a Polish Friend in Need

Hi friends. I know I've been absent all summer, and I'm so so sorry :( But I wanted to reach out you to first to say I'm coming back to blogging! And second to ask for your help with something very close to my heart. 
I have met some truely amazing woman through nail polish, as I'm sure many of you have as well. I am blessed to have met some ladies that have become more than just "polish friends" but real, true friends. Recently, one of those dear friends has been suffering from complications of a life long illness, Type 1 Diabetes. She is unable to work due to those complications, and without health insurance has incured a great deal of medical bills. She has been turned down for disability, and Medicare multiple times. And yet, she is still one of the sweetest, and most caring people I've ever "met".
So, together with an amazing group of people that have donated to this auction, I am asking for your help. I have 39 bottles of polish **UPDATE WE NOW HAVE 46 bottles**, some indies, some HTF, some international stuff, its a pretty good mix. I will be holding the auction starting tonight Monday, September 3rd, 2012 when this post is published, until Sunday, September 9th 2012 at 8pm eastern standard time. The auction is open to ALL bidders in the US and international. I will keep the identities of the bidders private, but I will update the current bids on the spreadsheet twice a day, at 11am and 11pm est. All bids must be emailed to All winners will be notified by email on Monday September 10th 2012, and are expected to send payment via PayPal within 24 hours of that email being sent.
If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me. Thank you in advance for your generosity and caring.
**UPDATE** More items still being added!! Please continue to check back!!
And thank you to Leah Ann LaRowe of Llarowe, Kim Snyder of Overall Beauty, Pam Heil of Girly Bits and Lynnderella for your generous donations to this most deserving cause.
