Pink Ribbon Nails

On Wednesdays we wear pink! I'm not actually part of the group that does this every week, but this week I do have a Pink post. Liesl over at Liesl Loves Pretty Things had a beautiful pink polish post today in honor of October being National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This inspired me to whip out an old photo of some nail art I did last October.

Pink (and black) ribbon nails

Last year I found this video tutorial on making these pink ribbons via following Breat Cancer Awarness on Facebook.

Colors Used:
   • ESSIE Allure - base color
   • ART DECO Black
   • ART DECO Hot Pink

My Art Deco polishes were from the Dollar Store. Great place to find the art brush bottles for cheap because you can't beat a dollar. (:

Liesl said, "...the fact is there's not one of us out here that hasn't been affected by this disease in some way." How true is this. My Grandmother lost her battle with breast cancer. My sisters and I never got to meet her and she never had the chance to meet any of her grandbabies. Thankfully progress has been made and women are catching their cancer early by becoming more aware of their bodies and having regular check ups. This is so important, girls. Early detection can save your life. Take care of yourselves and encourage the women in your life to do the same. SAVE THE TA♥TAS.

Thanks for popping in and help spread awareness.

    1. Thank you Shannon. I wish I could have met her but if my Mom is any indication of how she was, then she was a strong amazing woman.
