Moonflower Polish One More Light Collection

Hi guys! How's the weather where y'all are? We are in a winter storm warning here in Kentucky which means all the groceries store are running low on bread, milk, and eggs lol. People laugh at how southerners act when it snows but we simply aren't equipped to handle vast amounts of ice and snow here like they are in the north. Things literally shut down! One year we had 14 inches of snow and USPS didn't run for nearly a week because they couldn't get to peoples mailboxes. It's apocalyptic in the south when it snows, not kidding. Anyways! I have a very special collection to share with you guys today, more after the jump!

The One More Light collection was made in collaboration with Jenalyn from Two Girls, One Blush and is inspired by Linkin Park songs and struggles with mental health. 20% of the proceeds will be donated to the National Suicide Hotline and Linkin Park's One More Light fund.

I grew up listening to Linkin Park, their music resonated with a 15 year old me. When news of Chester's suicide made headlines, I was in the car with my bff Vicki on our way home from Nashville. We were both devastated. I've suffered with mental illness much of my life. OCD, depression, anxiety,'s exhausting. I was happy to see Nadia and Jenalyn were doing a collection like this, and donating proceeds. Now..let's get to the pretties!

A Million Thoughts
A greenish teal base with red-green-copper shimmer.
2 coats. No issues.
Nadia: "Depression comes and goes but anxiety is always there for me. It often feels like I have a million thoughts in my head, all at the same time, a million worries and what ifs. Teal is my favorite color and very representative of me, it's the color for the ocean of my Caribbean home in Puerto Rico"
Do You Love Me
A dusty blue with gray microflakes and pink-red-gold shimmer. 
2 coats. No issues.
Nadia: "Inspired by Jenalyn's long time boyfriend, specifically an old shirt of his that she loves. It's calming and helps to center her. He is her rock and main source of support. It's not that she thinks he doesn't love her, but that she likes to ask him if he still loves her in order to calm the chaos in her brain even though she knows she's his world."
Heart and Soul
A wine jelly base with holo, purple-blue iridescent glitters, and purple-blue shimmers. 
1 coat. No issues.
Nadia: "This color represent my kids, they are the reason I'm still alive today, they reason I get up in the morning and fight. My son is 5 and his favorite color is red, my daughter is 10 and her favorite color is purple."
One More Light
A dusty purple holo with red to green color shifting shimmer.
2 coats. No issues.
Nadia: "Inspired by the Linkin Park of the same name, this song is what has kept me alive on my worst days. The chorus goes "Who cares if one more light goes out? In a sky of a million stars, it flickers, flickers. Who cares when someone's time runs out? If a moment is all we are. We're quicker, quicker. Who cares if one more light goes out? Well I do" It reminds me that people do care about me, and I care about them. It shows the purpose of the collection, not just to raise awareness but to let others who are also suffering that we are here, there are lots of us, and we care."
Shadow of the Day
A bluish gray base with pink-red-gold shimmer and scattered holo. 
1 coat. 2 for pics. No issues.
Nadia: "Inspired by the song of the same name as well as a picture Jenalyn took. When we are struggling, the world feels all gray and heavy, it feels like there are no more options but one."

Stunning, right? The inspiration and proceeds are just an added benefit. Nadia & Jenalyn both put their heart and soul into this collection and it shows. I'm lucky to call them my blogging friends. If you or someone you know is strugging, don't be afraid to reach out. Sometimes it only takes one person to say "I care" to change someones perspective.

Price & Availability: Available now. 15ml bottles only. $10 individual, $48 for the set. 20% of proceeds donated to the National Suicide Hotline and Linkin Park's One More Light fund.
