BB Couture For Nails - Hands of Hope Collection

Have you been wanting to do something to help the earthquake victims in Haiti? Have you taken out of you nail polish funds to give? Well now you can buy new nail polish and help the relief efforts.

BB Couture for nails has released a new collection of six shades called the Hands of Hope Collection. 25% of all sales are going to the Salvation Army towards their efforts to get relief into the hands of those who need it most, the women and children of Haiti.

The collection includes:

~Tortuga Island - explore the exotic lush green island foliage
~Kyona Beach – gaze up at the cloudless baby blue sky while sunning on the beach
~Bassin’s Blue – experience subtle turquoise pools linked by spectacular waterfalls
~Labadie Beach – delight in the delicate pink hues of the setting sun
~Cape Haitian – mornings bring a mysterious pale violet haze over the mountains
~Paradise – savor the natural beauty of Haiti along the endless sandy beige beaches
I myself have just placed an order for the entire set. As soon as I get them I will swatch and post them for you. In the meantime Kim from Overall Beauty is getting swatches up for you to take a look at. The collection will be available tomorrow, but pre-orders are being taken today.
Not only do sales go to a good cause, but all the colors look really gorgeous! I am looking forward to every one of them!
The Hands of Hope Collection retails for $54 and can be purchased here.


  1. Thank you for posting this. My Godmother is orginally from Haiti. She's lived in the US since the 60's and is an activist for Haiti and Haitian immigrants. I've already donated to several organizations to help Haiti, but I'll definitly be placing an order for these tomorrow.

  2. Thanks for sharing! I made a blog post about it to to get the word out.

  3. Gah! I wish I had more money!!! I already donated through another organization, but I think once my taxes come in, I may have to pick these up. I've don't own/ haven't ever used BB Couture, so this will be a good way to give them a try. I love every single one of the shades. Do you happen to know if they're cremes or shimmers or a mix?

  4. I placed my order right away. I love the pastels that are out now. Why not combine the love of polish and some charity at the same time. This is wonderful of Kim to do this. I know you can buy single bottles of this collection. I'm not sure if they count toward the 25% to the Salvation Army. Is it only for the complete collection?

  5. Claudia - You're welcome!

    Chynna - Glad to help in any way

    MinderMustig - That is awesome!!

    razberiswrl - I believe they are cremes? I guess I won't know for sure til I have them. I will post pics ASAP!

    Lucy - No, the proceeds still go to Salvation Army even if you only order individual colors. :c)

  6. I been hearing comments about those wanting to help out but can't afford the full set. I now have it so you may buy one or two and still be helping. I am matching BB Couture dollar for dollar for each bottle of polish being sold part of this set. Thanks Lacquer Laine for helping us getting the word out..
    PS: your's are in the mail! ;)
