The Charity Box August 2021 | Folklore

by Lisa Heath

Press Samples

It’s almost time for another month of The Charity Box! I have 15 items in the August 2021 shop, and the theme is Folklore!

This month makers drew inspiration from Folklore. The charity for August 2021 is The Lupus Foundation of America. From their website:
Throughout our 40+ year history, the Lupus Foundation of America has made pioneering contributions toward ending the brutal impact of this misunderstood and unpredictable disease.

For the August shop, The Charity Box will donate $1 from every bottle/item sold to The Lupus Foundation of America, but there will also be a listing you can add to cart to make your own private donation if you wish to as well.

Let’s jump in and take a look! This month’s shop will run from August 12, 2021 at 12:00 noon central time through Saturday, August 21, 2021 at 10pm central time.

By Vanessa Molina | The Headless Horseman (Magnetic)

The Headless Horseman is a berry base with cherry red to orange magnetic pigment and scattered holographic. I found the magnetic effect to be on the more subtle side for this one, but it might have been that my magnet wasn’t strong enough. In person it was more noticeable but dispersed a bit. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Only the middle 2 fingers are magnetized for these photos.

Price: 13.00 | Cap: 100

Cardigan is a light, dusty sage like army green crelly base loaded with metallic bronze flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Esmaltes da Kelly | Boitatá (Magnetic)

Boitatá is a blue to purple to bronze multichrome magnetic with iridescent flakes, metallic flakes and aurora shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

I didn’t realize this was magnetic at first, so I am going to attempt to redo these photos this weekend.

Luna Wax | Lucky Gnomes Wax Melt

Luna Wax brings us a cute wax melt with a gnome on it! This is scented with a mix of Lingonberry, red currants and golden amber. My nose picks up a warm, tart scent that I’m assuming is the red currants. It’s slightly berry but not quite. This is a nice scent to melt that’s a little different and not too sweet.

Price: $6.25 | Cap: 60

LynBDesigns | I Am The Horseless Headsman

I Am The Horseless Headsman is a deep, blackened blue base with silver magnetic pigment and orange to green shifting crystal flakes, and a sprinkling of holo flecks. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

I only magnetized the middle 2 nails and left the outer 2 nails alone.
