Breast Cancer Awareness Manicure

Hello Lovelies

Today I have two manis to show you for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The first one will be the one I did on my Mom's nails and of course the other will be the one I did on myself.

First let me tell you that I desperately needed a new bottle of Seche Vite Top Coat so my mom and I ventured out to the nearest Sally's to get one. She immediately went towards the Breast Cancer section and saw this set.

This set I believe was $8.99 which was a great deal. The Seche Vite Top coat alone retails for $6.99 or $7.99 w/out using the beauty club card. So for a couple dollars more not only did I get the Dry Fast Top coat, I also got a China Glaze polish in Go Go Pink and a really pretty guardian angel key chain.

China Glaze Go Go Pink is a pretty creme finish, milky pink polish. For my look I used 1 coat of Go Go Pink and it was streaky so, 2 coats would of made it more opaque and not streaky.

For the month of October, my Mom's job has Pink Friday's for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. They are all encouraged to wear pink to show support and because she didn't have a pink shirt to wear she asked me to do her nails for the occasion.

For Mom's look I used Seche Plus fortified strengthener as a base coat,
Go Go Pink, Zoya Aareej, Orchid lacquer in Bedazzled!
and Seche Vite Top Coat
I also used a 18/0 Loew-Cornell 7650 Spotter Brush that I got
at Michael's to draw with

Here is the mani I did on her nails...
2 coats of Go Go Pink and Aareej for the french tip.
Used the Spotter brush to draw the Pink Ribbon
on accent nail also with Aarej. Then I topped it all off
with a coat of Bedazzled! and Seche Vite

At my job, we have Pink Wednesday's but I apparently didn't read the memo and missed it last week but I still wanted to show my support. So I decided to do a water marble mani. You can click here to see my previous post on a water marble mani.

For my look I used Seche Plus, China Glaze Go Go Pink & Limbo Bimbo,
Orchid Bedazzled! Seche Vite Top Coat and
The Spotter Brush

Here's 1 coat of Go Go Pink Under Seche Plus

For the water marble I used Go Go Pink
and Limbo Bimbo

(yes the index finger above and below look
different because I dinged it really bad :( and had to redo it)

Then I topped it off with 1 coat
of Bedazzled!

Then I decided I wanted to have the Pink Ribbon on an accent nail
so I took off the water marble on the ring finger
and used 2 coats of Go Go Pink instead

Using the spotter brush I drew on the Ribbon with Limbo Bimbo

And Lastly topped accent nail with Bedazzled! and
1 coat of Seche Vite over all nails.

So what do you think? I know this was a long and picture heavy post, but it's to show support for a great cause. I think I might do 1 or 2 more Breast Cancer Awareness looks especially since my mom's already asking me what I'm going to do for her nails this week lol.

I just want to dedicate this look and any future Breast Cancer Awarness looks I do this month to my Tia Rosy and my Mom's co-worker and friend Mona who are both Breast Cancer survivors <3 And of course to all the women (and some men) who have lost the battle to breast cancer, who are still fighting strong and to all that have survived.

Kourt wanted to add a dedication to E!'s Guiliana Rancik who found out this week she is in stage 1 of breast cancer. Not only has she had to battle miscarraiges and trouble conceiving a child w/ her husband, now she has to battle The Big C. Our thoughts and prayers are with you! Also just a dedication to my Grandmother who lost her battle w/ breast cancer in 1995. I love you always Grandma Georgia!
