Tips 4 Type 1!

Tonya Homme is a mother of a child with type 1 diabetes.  She wanted to do something extra to do her part in creating awareness and raising funds for the research towards a cure for type 1 diabetes.

So Tonya took a fun and creative approach and created a nail polish duo which symbolize diabetes awareness.  Silver is the color of the diabetes awareness ribbon and blue is the color of the diabetes awareness circle.  I put in my order recently and here is what it looks like:

I did my nails in Silver


Ana did her nails in Blue


Proceeds from each order go to the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation.

You may be thinking that a little nail polish can’t go far.  Oh it can.  When a large group of people wear a particular color of nail polish, many others jump aboard and every fashion magazine gives that color or colors all kinds of precious attention.  So if you visualize the impact of such a small way of contributing and if you already wear nail polish, then consider purchasing your nail polish duo.  The colors are great and just so happen to be “in” this Fall season.  They also cover very nicely.

If you want to get in on this gorgeous act of solidarity, go to Tips4Type1 (clever name by the way) and put in your order.

Have a nice day everyone!
