Silver + Pink Ribbons: Breast Cancer Awareness Nails

Hallo und wilkommen! Today I have my October-is-the-month-to-remind-you-to-check-your-boobies manicure to show you!

(Srsly, you should be checking yo'self. You too, male readers. Yours may not be as fabulous, but they can get cancer too. So go ahead, give 'em a squeeze. Everybody should be familiar with all parts of their body--how it looks, feels, the way it normally behaves--and pay attention if something changes. And go to the doctor if something weird happens! Better safe than sorry.)

This is for you, Vicky. RIP <3

The pink nails are painted with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Flashy Fuchsia, and the silver is China Glaze Icicle. Atop the pink nails, I used the ribbon-french-tip design from Bundle Monster plate BM-324 to stamp in Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Silver Sweep. Stamping french tip designs is harddddd, y'all. It only came out non-wonky on the middle finger, so focus on how pretty that one is!

On the silver nails, I stamped the full-nail ribbon image from BM-321 in the same set, also with the same fuchsia polish. All the Insta-Dri colours work so brilliantly for stamping!

Sealed in with Cult Nails Wicked Fast topcoat.

With flash, and the bottle, so you can see that great blue shimmer running through Flashy Fuchsia. I love that it even came through a little on the thin layer of the stamped image!

and one more close-up.

I will be participating in a 5K at the end of the month to raise money for cancer research, and will probably re-do this mani (or at least something similar) for the occasion. If it is different and turns out well I may post it for you as well. :)

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your week, and I'll see you next time! xoxo
