GIVEAWAYS / CONTESTS
Giveaway by IG @alintamcmurdo
A message from Alinta about her giveaway:-
May is Lyme Awareness Month and the World Wide Lyme Protest runs 16th - 18th May. So I am running a giveaway to raise much needed awareness - especially within the nail community. The Australian Government need to accept that this disease is here and that it can be very debilitating, I have Late Stage Neurological Lyme Disease that has made me very disabled but I cannot access treatment. I hope that more awareness will make the Australian Government act so that less people need to suffer. I also hope people will understand Lyme more so that there is less stigma attached to the name and more compassion showed for those who suffer. If just one person catches their symptoms early and realises it's Lyme so that they can get early treatment, this will all be worth it.
Prize consists of nail art items, polish donated by myself, Dead Set Babes, Powder Perfect and Fox And Owl Polish as well as an "I Do Nails" polish necklace from Perfectly Imperfect Pretties.
