This listing is for the complete Stronger Collection. It will include all five polishes inspired by very special women in my life. You will receive:
Brandi is a lifelong friend. Brandi, Karen and I have been a trio for as long as I can remember. Her name means fiery beacon, and that is PERFECT! I chose to make her color pink crelly. It fits her soft and loving personality, her love of pink plus a nod to her love of the 80's and 90's. She is gentle, kind, humble and warrior! Brandi is never to be underestimated. She is my fighter, and my personal warrior. She has come to my defense, being my voice when I couldn't muster a single word. Flying into Virginia, just to give me a hug when a phone call would not do. I chose to add a violet/yellow duochrome pigment because she is so humble and adds sparkle to anyone who meets her! Brandi is strong as steel and wields a HUGE sword, therefore I added metallic black flakes. She can go toe to toe when she feels someone has been wronged. She is a crusader, trying to make the world a better place so I added pink/gold micro flakes!
Karen: This turquoise crelly polish was inspired by my dear friend Karen. Her name mean Purity, and that is perfect, as she has a pure heart. She taught me determination, loyalty and perseverance. We have been friends forever, and even share the same birthday. Once we were almost denied access to a movie because our birthdays are the same, the theater thought we were using fake ID's. Although life keeps us from talking every day, when able to catch up it is as though we have never missed a beat. We have grown up together and have been by each others side through good and bad times. Not long ago Karen surprised me when she came to the hospital after hearing my father unexpectedly became ill. Karen stayed and stood with my entire family as we watched my father's last breaths. I chose to make a turquoise crelly polish because of her loyalty (and memories of the beach). I added vibrant color shifting flakes for her ability to always look for the good, even when things don't go the way you were hoping.
Missy: This lavender polish was inspired by my sister-in law. Missy is kind, gentle, and loving but she has NO IDEA her awesomeness! Missy taught me not to worry about the small stuff, concentrate on the big things. She also taught me to laugh instead of cry. She has sat next to me for hours in surgical waiting rooms as we clung to each other awaiting news of my husband, her brother. She talked me off a ledge as I came unglued on a pharmacist while trying to pick up her brother's prescription. We have laughed with and at each other and cried together. I chose to make this lavender/red duochrome polish because Missy's favorite color is purple, and her heart always shines through! The polish was jam packed with color shifting flakes to represent all the color and happiness she brings into my life (and everyone who meets her) I couldn't think of any other way to complete this polish but with linear holographic pigments, hoping to show Missy how she is a diamond bringing everyone around her such light!
Renate: My mother was the inspiration for this color. Born in Germany, her names means "Born Again" fitting since she was adopted. She taught me to never give up, always keep fighting for what I believe. She taught me to slow down, and not miss a moment with my children. She has taught me to only worry about and solve today's problems, as tomorrow will have an entire new set. This polish is a two tone metallic silver base, as she is my shield and protector. She does her best to shield my three siblings and I from hurt and pain. Pink holographic flakes were added to represent her amazing heart. Holographic pigment was included as she shines being a guiding light helping to guide me while I was forced to make some scary life decisions.
Ruth: This polish was inspired by my late grandmother. In Hebrew Ruth means friend, and she was to anyone she met. She was one of the most amazing people I ever had the privilege to meet, and a gift she was my grandmother. She was a pastors wife, humble, kind, loving and her smile was like no other. Anyone who realizes I am related to "Ruth" will stop and tell me what an amazing person she was, and share a story of how she touched their life. she and my grandfather were a team, happily married until she left this world. I miss her like crazy and her passing left a huge void in my life. She lived with a painful debilitating nerve illness (CRPS formally called RSD) for twenty years, and never complained. She bravely faced each painful day with a smile. Always willing to help someone in need no matter how much physical or emotional pain. I admire her bravery and am in awe of her strength. Doctors question if my husband has this illness, I now have a deeper understanding of her bravery. I have no idea how she was able to wake and fight each day with such grace. This is a light blue with lavender duochrome polish. I wanted this polish to look like the angel! Multi colored holographic flakes as she was full of life, laughter and joy. This beautiful polish has a crazy amount of holographic flair as she did not just help light up my life, but was a light to everyone.
