12:00 PM

Happy Labor Day Weekend my fellow Nail Crazies!
Hope everyone is having a good weekend so far! Today I have some swatchers and reviews for a very special collection from Dashing Housewife Polish called "Because of the Brave". 50% of the proceeds from this collection will be donated to one of the following organizations: 
Fisherhouse.org , WoundedWarriorProject.org , HelpingHometownHeroes.org, HeartstringsForHeroes.com/our-heroes , OpChristmas.org , SpecialOps.org or
SoldierAngels.org
This is special to me as I have family and friends who are veterans and currently active in the military and any support they can get is well deserved! This collection consist of 11 polishes and instead of squishing them all into one blog post, I will be posting them in 2 parts. Part 1 will consist of all the military themed polishes and part 2 will be the law enforcement themed polishes(which will be posted tomorrow). Lets get right to it!

Here are the beautiful Military polishes.

First up is Watchmen. Watchmen is a white crelly filled with various shapes and sizes of red and blue glitters. I used 2 coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Formula was good and applied well, no fishing needed! This polish represents the Coast Guard.

Next is Semper Fi. Semper Fi is a clear glitter topper with red and yellow glitters in numerous shapes and sizes. I used 1 dabbing coat over a black undie and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Applied very well and no fishing was needed at all. This polish represents the Marines.

Third is Wild Blue Yonder. Wild Blue Yonder is a deep blue shimmer polish with holographic and silver glitters of different shapes and sizes. I used 2 coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Formula was good and applied easily. No fishing needed. This polish represents the Air Force.

Next is Hooah. Hooah is a back jelly polish yellow and gold glitters in numerous shapes and sizes. I used 2 coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Formula was good and applied very easily, no fishing needed. This polish represents the Army.

Fifth is Kiss Me Sailor. Kiss Me Sailor is a light blue crelly with dark blue and yellows glitters including triangles. I used 2 coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Formula was good and applied well but some fishing was needed for the triangles. This polish represents the Navy.

Next up is Until They All Come Home. Until They All Come Home is a yellow crelly with white and iridescent glitters. I used 2 coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. This one  felt a little on the thicker side but if you apply with a light hand and in thin coats it is good. This polish represents the yellow ribbons we all put up in hoping for safe returns for our military men and women.

And Last is Sacrifice. Sacrifice is a lavender crelly with white and purple glitters including hearts. I used 2 coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Applied well but some fishing and placement was needed for the hearts. This is my favorite from this set of polishes. Sacrifice represents all the Purple Heart recipients.

Overall i loved every one of these polishes. Not only do the meanings behind them mean something very special but the formulas were great and only some with the heavier glitters required fishing/placement. You can purchase each of these polish for $10 now for pre-order. As stated above 50% of the proceeds from this collection will be donated. So what are you waiting for! Go help a great cause!
