Neon Nails for Charity

Becky'y Wish

Fearne Cotton, Becky, and Holly Willoughby.

We love our nails here at BATD, but this new charity foundation makes us want to paint our nails every day!

Cowshed is pairing with Essie in an exclusive limited edition nail polish launch. All of the proceeds will be going towards the Starlight Children’s Foundation, which gives children once-in-a-lifetime wishes, as well as providing light-hearted fun at hospitals and hospices in the UK.

It all started when a young girl named Becky made a wish to have a mani-pedi spa day with her idols, best friends Holly Willoughby and Fearne Cotton. Willoughby and Cotton jumped at the opportunity to make Becky’s wish even more memorable by creating a nail polish in honour of her!

They immediately went to Essie Cosmetics and spoke with Essie Weingarten herself, the founder of the company. Weingarten instantly agreed and offered to create a bespoke polish in Becky’s favourite colour!

The Starlight Children’s Foundation features a mix of celebs and other prominent members of the public. There is also a 10-part funded entertainment series that airs in Feb. 2011. Bill Nighy, a favourite of the charity’s ambassadors, is lined up to narrate one of the episodes.

The limited edition nail polish is for a great cause. Not only that, but Becky picked a fab electric blue colour for her nail polish – bang on trend for the neons this season.

Be sure to look for it in stores now! Its launch was 16th Feb, which was when Becky’s episode aired on TV.

‘Becky’s Wish’ polish can be found at cowshed spas and online for  £10.
