It’s nail colour with a cause! Future Dreams, a charity set up by mother-and-daughter team Sylvie Henry and Danielle Leslie to tackle breast cancer, has teamed up with nail brand Essie Cosmetics to launch a polish named after the campaign.
A 2008 variety evening raised an incredible £300,000, but Future Dreams hopes its latest venture will raise even more cash. All proceeds will go to Breakthrough Breast Cancer, the UK’s leading breast cancer-beating charity. Every sale counts - you can pick your polish up here at Perfect Nails, or from high-street favourite Reiss.
Sylvie’s recent tragic death and the news that Danielle’s cancer has returned have inspired Future Dreams to go further in its admirable campaign to raise funds. This October another variety event, featuring the cast of Grease, Patrick Kielty and the cast of Jersey Boys (and more) will take place, showcasing the best of West End talent!
Add your help to this display of courage and pick up Essie’s bang-on-trend new nail colour. Peony pink is the perfect shade to offset your autumn nudes and will add a spark of sensibility to studded leather.
The polish’s launch comes hot on the heels of Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s campaign to create a selection of pink objects to raise awareness of the disease. Has there ever been a better time to look pretty in pink?
