    Introducing Mau Loa Ohana by Joy Lacquer in collaboration with Crystal’s Charity Lacquers to benefit Hawaiian Humane Society!  “Mau Loa” means forever; “Ohana” means family. This polish is named for the beautiful phrase - “Forever Family”, something that every pet deserves - and $4 per bottle will go to benefit an amazing animal shelter that works tirelessly toward that very goal!

    Mau Loa Ohana is a vivid pink polish loaded with a purple shimmer, sure to make your heart beat faster! The love that is so obviously present at the Hawaiian Humane Society is reflected in this intense polish - as bright as the optimism and dedication with which the HHS fights to save the lives of animals.  This polish is especially excellent when used on the nails of those scratching little heads belonging to puppers and kitties.  To avoid a pet hair mani, just make sure it’s completely dry first!

    This fuchsia color is opaque in 2 coats and shifts to a light purple/orange glow.  The shimmer was difficult to capture in photos, but in person you'll see the orange is almost a chrome shift depending on the light, and the purple is a nice soft contrast with the hot pink.  Bottom line, this color is absolutely gorgeous, unique and even more incredible in person!

    Crystal’s visit to the Hawaiian Humane Society in 2015 which geocaching brought about a deep love for the shelter - the dedication and determination to save lives there was so palpable and obvious that even when Crystal’s trip was over, the place never left her mind. As a no-kill shelter that is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the shelter has become a sanctuary and a beacon of hope for animals that otherwise would have little hope - even illegal animals are accepted, no questions asked.   Next month, she's planned a trip to visit the Hawaiian shelter again and hand over the check personally.

    Since its inception in 2015, Crystal’s Charity Lacquers has taken a unique approach to raising funds for great causes. By combining the passion for nail polish and generosity of polish makers with the loving hearts of the nail polish community, Crystal’s Charity Lacquers has helped raise thousands of dollars for many worthwhile causes.  In the past Joy Lacquer's collaborated with Crystal several times and we're overjoyed to do so again, in order to benefit the Hawaiian Humane Society.
