We all know that this October is Cult Nails month (with giveaways on all social networks, and even a SUPER SALE starting as this post airs).
We also know that October is the month of Halloween and there are awesome contest, like the Bundle Monster one that needs your creative entries
On a serious note however… with all FUN nail-events aside for a moment… October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), also referred to in America as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM); it “is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer” (source Wikipedia).
Pink ribbons symbolize our support and our want/need to find a cure. Pink manicures have been popping up everywhere to increase awareness. We are mid October and I am just chiming in… (better late than never?)…
The nail-polish enthusiast community is made up of (mostly) ladies, and whether we have been affected by breast cancer personally, know somebody who has been touched by this disease, or are healthy and counting our blessings, it is important that we continue to stay educated on this disease, do regular checkups, and if possible donate to find a cure.
To create this pink-manicure I applied two coat of China Glaze IV (an oldie but goodie). IV is a soft cream pink (borderline, but just not quite, coral). I painted half of my nails with a sheer silver glass-fleck polish and stamped over that with Bundle Monster plate BM-318. I then added a few silver dots using SueSa Nail Polish – S02.
I hope you like this soft and delicate manicure in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
