Glam Polish Bad Hair Day Limited Edition Alopecia Awareness Shade Swatch & Review

Hi there and hello lovely reader! Today I am here with a new limited edition lacquer from Australian indie brand Glam Polish! They have produced this shade for the month of September to help raise funds and awareness for Alopecia, an autoimmune condition that causes people to lose their hair from all areas of the body, including the scalp, for which there is no known cure.

Approximately 60% of people diagnosed are under the age of 20, and for children especially, hair loss can have a negative impact on their self-esteem, which in many cases is linked to anxiety, depression, impaired academic performance and lack of social inclusion. To support children affected by the condition, Australia Alopecia Areata Foundation & Variety grants wigs - helping children gain their confidence and feel more comfortable amongst their peers.

* Alopecia (al-oh-PEE-shah) is a HAIRLOSS Condition, that can cause round patches of baldness, or total body hairless.

* There are 3 Main Types of Alopecia: Alopecia Areata - round patches / bald spots, Alopecia Totalis - complete Scalp baldness and Alopecia Universalis - total hair loss from body and scalp.

*Alopecia Areata is a believed to be a AUTOIMMUNE disease: the immune system mistakenly attacks the body (hair follicles) instead of defending it.

*Alopecia Areata affects MEN & WOMEN equally. It can occur at ANY AGE, often begins during childhood or early teen years. It does not discriminate on race.

*Alopecia is NOT Contagious.

Bad Hair Day is a linear holographic medium-deep navy blue with silver, navy and bright blue holographic microglitter. It has an amazing formula, just like all the other Glam Polish shades I've tried. Covers completely in two coats. It does dry a little bit textured with all of the glitter, but a layer of top coat will smooth it out just fine.

The color was named by 13-year-old Natalia Voss, who lives with Alopecia Areata. Some days it can be very hard covering up patches of missing hair or even looking at your hair in the mirror when you have Alopecia Areata so we thought this was the perfect name for our fundraising shade.

Bad Hair Day will be available for purchase starting September 4th at 6 pm EST (US) on www.glampolish.com.au. $7.00 AUD from each bottle sold of this polish goes to the Alopecia Areata Association of Australia Foundation Inc. to help fund wings for children with the condition and aid in educating against bullying. If you would like to help the cause without purchasing the polish, you can donate HERE. Since I was given the opportunity to review this shade for free, I contributed the amount that would have been donated had I purchased it. 

Tell me what you think about this beautiful glittery lacquer! I am head over heels in love with it! It supports a very worthy cause and of course it makes my nails look pretty! I'll be back with some more Glam Polish tomorrow, so stay tuned!
