Introducing NAF! Stuff x Navy Professional
Launching Friday 16th of July 2021 at 8am ✨
Navy Professional’s signature scent meets NAF! Stuff’s cult Nail & Cuticle Oil formula, with artwork in collaboration with Laxmi Hussain, all to raise money for three incredible charities. We hope you’re ready for the ultimate nail collaboration, because we can’t wait to share these Limited Edition products with you!
NAF! Stuff x Navy Professional is all about unity; coming together, supporting one another and sharing fantastic professional products with our industry. Both NAF! Stuff and Navy Professional are brands founded and created with beauty professionals at heart.
“I’ve been a big fan of Navy Professional and Rebecca, their founder, for a long time. We’ve developed a friendship through the highs and lows of running our own businesses and really wanted to collab on something together to celebrate that. I’m so in love with what we’ve created. It’s been so fun to re-imagine our products with Navy’s branding & signature scent and Laxmi’s beautiful artwork tied the whole concept together perfectly.” - Tammy Koslowski, founder of NAF! Stuff
“We are delighted to work with NAF! Stuff and Laxmi to create such an iconic product and packaging. Uniting with NAF! Stuff has allowed us to not only create a great product, but also signifies strength and unity between businesses, which I am extremely passionate about.” - Rebecca Crawforth, founder of Navy Pro Tools
✨These nail and cuticle oil products come in glass dropper bottle and a pocket friendly twist and click brush pen. Available to all beauty professionals at nafstuff.com and navyprofessional.com ✨
We’re committed to donating 10% of all profits generated from this collaboration and will be donating on behalf of all purchasers. For NAF! Stuff x Navy Professional both founders wanted to do something extra special for the collab’s packaging, which led them to commission an exclusive piece of art by artist, Laxmi Hussain.
“Elegant and ethereal but also precise and geometric, Laxmi Hussain’s drawings and watercolours exist somewhere between the abstract and the realistic, often presenting what appear to be the free-flowing organic forms of nature through intricately ordered patterns.”
“It was really nice to be asked to work on a product surrounding nail care. I come from a Filipina background and in the Philippines looking after your nails whether you’re male or female is something that’s just normal - usually everyone’s hands are so well manicured. When we were growing up, my mum would organise for my aunties or someone locally to come do the whole family’s nails and it’s just really lovely to have that kind of connection and then work on this project together with NAF! and Navy.
The inspiration behind the design was for the artwork to be quite abstract but also to have some hands because we’re celebrating the nail industry. I decided to draw an abstract piece which hints at a body being in there but also hints at the hands and connection which is a really lovely take on this collaboration.” - Laxmi Hussain, Artist
Laxmi’s exclusive piece decorates each pen and desk oil, as well as printed materials, so that every customer will get to own a small slice of her beautiful artwork. There will also be an opportunity to win the original artwork in a special launch giveaway on Instagram!
Each brand has chosen a to donate 10% of profits from this collaboration to a charity of their choice.
NAF! Stuff has chosen Hair & Beauty Charity
“The Hair and Beauty Charity is the official charity for the hair and beauty industry; an independent service dedicated solely to helping hair and beauty professionals in their hour of need. Everybody has different circumstances, and we provide financial support to those living tough lives due to illness, disability, domestic violence or other difficult circumstances. So far, we have helped thousands of people live a better life." Hair & Beauty Charity
“We chose Hair & Beauty Charity because they offer support for anyone who is struggling financially in our industry. It’s been a really tough year and the charity has seen requests for assistance rise by 144%. I really respect the work that this organisation are doing ” - Tammy Koslowski, founder of NAF! Stuff
Navy Professional has chosen Freedom4Girls
"Our charity’s missions and aims are to support those who menstruate by challenging the stigmas, taboos and gender inequalities associated with menstruation through education, provision of menstrual health management solutions and actively being at the forefront of the wider campaign against period poverty.
We are passionate about educating all people on the importance of normalising conversations about menstruation, from challenging stigmas and myths associated with periods, to providing education sessions that offer a safe space for healthy conversations about periods." - Freedom4Girls
“Our chosen charity freedom4girls, is a charity fighting period poverty. 1 in 10 people who menstruate in the UK can’t afford to buy menstrual products, and the same number have had to improvise sanitary wear. I feel compelled to support a charity which helps empower in this way; this charity is very close to my heart.”
Rebecca Crawforth, founder of Navy Pro Tools
As well as the donations from profits, NAF! Stuff have teamed up with Navy Professional and Laxmi Hussain to create a special, downloadable phone wallpaper featuring Laxmi’s design that will allow anyone to donate to the charity of Laxmi’s choice, Blood Cancer UK.
"We’re here to beat blood cancer. We do this by funding research that takes us closer to a cure. Our research has already helped transform treatments and taken us to the point where the day we will beat blood cancer is now in sight.
As well as looking for a cure in the future, we help people right now. We’re there for people when they need someone to talk to, whether on the phone or online, and we offer health information people can trust, in a language they can understand. We also campaign for change, helping make sure that people get the health care they deserve and that new treatments that come from research breakthroughs are available on the NHS." - Blood Cancer UK
The digital download of the phone wallpaper will cost £5 and also enter that person into a draw to win Laxmi’s original artwork along with the NAF! Stuff x Navy Professional collab products, a £50 NAF! Stuff Voucher and a £50 Navy Voucher! All proceeds from the sales of this digital product will go to Blood Cancer UK.
