Girly Bits Roger That

Girly Bits...When I talk in my posts about indies who are in a class by themselves; when I say they ooze professionalism and their polishes have set a standard by which all others should aspire to, I am talking in part about Girly Bits. Don't get me wrong, there are many really good indie polish makers out there.  I own a lot of them!  But whenever I put on a Girly Bits polish, I am breath-taken by the exquisite professionalism that IS this polish brand. The ease of use and smoothness of the polishes are a pure joy to work with.  
Today, I have a special polish made by Pam.  It is called Roger That and it is a holographic blue that was made in honor of Brady Rogers-a friend in the community that Pam lives in. His life was shortened when he collapsed and died suddenly at his own graduation party.   
Here is what Girly Bits says on the description of the polish on her website:
Saturday, July 21st, our community was shocked, and deeply saddened by the sudden and unexplained death of a local teen, Brady Rogers. Brady and his closest friends and family were at his home celebrating his high school graduation when Brady collapsed and died. 
His close knit circle of friends have been reeling ever since, searching for answers, and trying to comfort one another. Brady was larger than life in spirit, personality, and even in his 6'4 red haired, blue eyed frame. He was one of those kids who left an impression on everyone who's path he crossed. He loved his friends and family deeply and wasn't afraid to show it.
Brady's friends have spent the better part of the week, creating tributes to Brady in the form of orange ribbons and posters which they painted the town with, especially along the funeral route from the funeral home, to the community center where a service for Brady was held, with a full house of 700+ people.
My daughter came to me on Monday, asking if I could create a polish, in Brady's memory, and donate the proceeds to the Brady Rogers Memorial Bursary Fund at Kingsville District High School, which he graduated from just weeks before. I told her if she and her friends came up with a colour inspiration, and a name, I could have it done in time for them to wear to the funeral service on Wednesday. They all agreed- a sparkly blue, like Brady's eyes. The name? Roger That. (his twitter name)
Consider it done.
Mackenzie and I paid a visit to Brady's parents- Mark and Susanne Rogers, and left them with 55 bottles of Roger That, to be sold for $10 each, with 100% of the proceeds going to Brady's Bursary.
All 55 were immediately purchased, with many requests for more. I have donated 100 bottles to the family, with 100% of the money from those sales going into the fund. I have also poured more and I will continue to offer the polish on my site, for the retail price of $12.50, with $5.00 from every bottle sold going to Brady's Bursary.
This polish and one other were generously bought for me by my friend Tina, who knew I didn't have the money to purchase at the time.  Thank you, Tina!  Roger That is a linear blue holo that went on like buttah in two coats.  The linear is so strong, that it even shows through at times in the shade.
Application was a pleasure. It reminded me of putting on my first Butter London.  Ease of use was ridiculous.   Pam has also made another polish for Brady Rogers called Gentle Ginger which you can buy HERE.
