Hi beauties, hope this week has treated you well and that you are ready for the weekend…..!!

Paint your “Old” Polish forward

The nail bottle saga is a subliminal one that affects most, if not all, of us gals – and our bathroom cupboards. How often do we eye out a shade we love? We buy it, sport it as the perfect match to a special outfit or occasion; we paint it on our hands or toes a few more times and, before long – and almost always before we get to the bottom of the bottle – we abandon it for a more on-trend, in-season or more-loved shade. And so begins our ongoing collection of crusty-round- the-top and terribly unloved, half-empty nail polishes at the back – way back – black depths of the bathroom cupboard.

You’re nodding because you know. (Im guilty!!) This Winter, Sorbet has arrived with some #good news to support your “colours in the attic” habit: a win-win solution for you that’ll leave you clutter free and feeling fabulous. The Sorbet SEW Academy (Sorbet Empowering Women) has sounded a call for all old, wasted away, unused, nail polish bottles to be donated to its SEW fund in support of their nail-technician “Old nail bottles have life in them yet,” says Jade Kirkel, Marketing Manager of Sorbet Group, “we are on a drive to reinstate old bottles as training material tools in our SEW Academy, to best sustain our nail techs along their dream journeys of becoming qualified beauty therapists,” ends Kirkel.

In its 5 th year running, the aim of the SEW Trust is to improve the earning potential and circumstances of previously disadvantaged women in South Africa, by providing training which enables them to find employment within the beauty industry.

And now, there can be no better excuse to rid your bad bathroom habits this Season, than paying your old polish bottles forward to the ones that need it most. Just pop into your nearest Sorbet store and drop off your bottles (any polishes, any brand) with the front desk cashier. Be sure to post a drop-off pic on the Sorbet Face Book Page for that added “feel good” feeling. Visit www.sorbet.co.za for more details.

ALSO, it takes just R5 to paint it forward!! 

Manicures and pedicures at Sorbet stores have never been more beautiful. With the option of adding R5 to any treatment, guests to all Sorbet stores have the power to paint it forward: by helping other women to “get that feeling” and create brighter futures for themselves through Sorbet’s social initiative: Sorbet Empowering Women (SEW) with the aim of empowering young, unemployed women into financial independence by providing them with the opportunities, skills and tools to learn, grow and improve their lives.

SEW Academy recruits, trains and mentors women from previously disadvantaged backgrounds to become professional nail technicians, and ultimately, find employment within the Sorbet Group. With an overarching goal of empowering 145 women into stable, permanent employment by March 2018, SEW’s ambition is as far-reaching as its impact.

Please support and get involved in this project its SEW easy!!!

Lets give back and empower the women around us!!
