Epilepsy Awareness: Day 1-China Glaze Coconut Kiss

A little under 3 years ago when I started blogging, I never knew that there was a world of Nail Bloggers. But during this time, I have quickly learned that there is a sisterhood of bloggers. I have quickly gained a number of ladies from each corner of the world, that I can call "friend". More often than not, when I'm shopping for nail polish, these ladies come to mind.  We support each other on nail related topics, but more importantly we support each other in life.

One of my blogger sisters, April, has been facing a challenge that would stress any one with a child. Her beautiful young daughter, has been struggling with Epilepsy; sometimes having multiple seizures within one day. Recently April asked if we fellow nail bloggers could show our support for Epilepsy Awareness by posting a Purple Manicure.  Tuesday, March 26th was Epilepsy Awareness Day. A group of ladies had decided to extend the request of a one day post to a week of Purple Postings.  

In support of April, I will be posting Purple Manicures for the next 7 days. While I don't have a child impacted by Epilepsy, and I am not equating these two situations, I did have a fur-baby that suffered with Epilepsy. I remember the sense of helplessness watching my cat, Gizzy, have her first seizure and throughout the next 13 years of her life. It was never easy.

So for Day 1, I'm sharing a polish that has been in my collection for years, but for whatever reason, I had never worn it. China Glaze Coconut Kiss is a gorgeous royal purple.  

I am happy to say that this polish is still readily available as part of the current core China Glaze collection.

In these pictures, I am wearing 2 coats of polish. And the coverage is great as well as the application.  I am so glad that I finally wore this polish. It is so pretty.

Do you have China Glaze Coconut Kiss in your collection? What are some of the polishes you have owned for years but took you forever to wear?

Grace, Peace, & Blessings.

I agree. This is a gorgeous color. I don't believe that I waited so long to wear it.
