"Chiari Awareness" by U-Neek Polish

Nail polish for a cause. I'm going to share with you all what this decease means. Taken right from U-Neek Polish's etsy shop description of the polish.
"Chiari Awareness polish was created to help bring awareness to Chiari Malformation. As most people do not know what it is and how you “get it”. Chiari Malformation (kee-AHR-ee mal-for-MAY-shun) is a condition in which brain tissue protrudes into your spinal canal. It occurs when part of your skull is abnormally small or misshapen, pressing on your brain and forcing it downward. Chiari malformation is uncommon, but improved imaging tests have led to more frequent diagnoses. The adult form, called Chiari malformation type I, develops as the skull and brain are growing. As a result, signs and symptoms may not occur until late childhood or adulthood. The most common pediatric form, called Chiari malformation type II, is present at birth (congenital). In the past, it was estimated that the condition occurs in about one in every 1,000 births. However, the increased use of diagnostic imaging has shown that CM may be much more common. Complicating this estimation is the fact that some children who are born with the condition may not show symptoms until adolescence or adulthood, if at all. CMs occur more often in women than in men and Type II malformations are more prevalent in certain groups, including people of Celtic descent. Treatment of Chiari malformation depends on the form, severity and associated symptoms. Regular monitoring, medications and surgery are treatment options. In some cases, no treatment is needed. Chiari malformation occurs when the section of the skull containing the cerebellum is too small or is deformed, thus putting pressure on and crowding the brain. The lowermost portion, or tonsils, of the cerebellum are displaced into the upper spinal canal. The pediatric form, Chiari II malformation, is always associated with a myelomeningocele. The adult form, Chiari I malformation, results primarily from a too small back portion of the skull." To read more... http://www.etsy.com/listing/119212340/chiari-awareness 

This is a beautiful polish and goes to a great cause;
15% of each bottle sold will be donated to http://www.csfinfo.org/ Chiari & Syringomyelia Foundation. 

This polish is made in a pearl purple base with black bars, and purple, silver and black macro glitters. Purple is also the color of Chiari Awareness. I was able to get even coverage in 2 coats, but I added a thin third one just personal preference really. The application was very good, no need to dig for glitters. Also, I got full even coverage with no streaking or pulling or anything. This is the polish on its own, no undies needed! I did use a top coat to get the polish finish and shine. The bar glitter blended in right with the polish, and didn't curl or stick up or anything annoying. The finished application was very smooth and the color is so beautiful! Dried really quickly too. Also, purple is my favorite color so I loved wearing this. 

The silver glitters are holographic, as seen in this pic.
