Today I have the stunning Giada to share with you, this is a dark vampy purple with a lighter purple shimmer/flash, this is from one of my favourite collections from Zoya their Focus and Flair.
June is Migraine Awareness month and the colour is purple, I'll be doing a few purples from my untried polishes.
Formula on this was superb, no running or pooling, not thick and it went exactly where I put it, this is one of those lit from within polishes, perfect for Christmas and New Year manis.
I've had migraine since I was 15 and have been chronic since 2009, migraine is an incurable neurological disorder, traditionally medications for other conditions where used, now we have a medication called CGRP. I've tried a lot of the preventatives and the abortives and am now having botox treatment.
Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is a molecule that is synthesised in neurons (nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord). It has been implicated in different pain processes, including migraine, and functions as a vasodilator — that is, it relaxes blood vessels. Once scientists identified this target molecule, they began trying to develop ways to stop it from being activated at the start of migraines, as a kind of abortive treatment. The CGRP mAbs (monoclonal antibody) have this effect, and because they have a long duration of action (called a half-life), they can be administered much less frequently than typical migraine medications that are taken daily (with the exception of botulinum toxin, which is injected every 90 days). These new migraine medications are injected under the skin monthly, and have thus far demonstrated a statistically significant decrease in days of migraine.
