I’m running a little behind with my blog post today. In my own defence, I built my very first Nail Polish Rack rather than polishing last night because I was so darned excited to make it! Otherwise I would have done this mani last night 🙂
Anywho, today is the 4th Go Pink Wednesday, hosted by Finger Painting Fingers, which has been so much fun. I have a new-found love for the colour pink. It’s not that I didn’t like pink before, I just like it more than I did before 🙂 I have all the colours of the rainbow (literally) in my polish collection and really not that many pink polishes, considering it’s a pretty “normal” polish colour.
This week I had to use a Breast Cancer Awareness polish. This is 2 coats of 365 Days of Color Love My Tatas over 2 coats of Julep Carrie from their Pinky Promise set.
Sunny from 365 Days of Color says: “As many of you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, which means all month long, many companies are donating money all month long to research foundations. I have always been a supporter of breast cancer awareness and research. As someone who had a breast cancer scare back in 2010, I know how important it is to regularly check to make sure nothing is wrong with your body. This month only, I will be selling this polish and donating two dollars from each sale to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.”
Julep says: “In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, we have created the Pinky Promise Set with two beautiful pink crèmes and one of our best-selling products. 20% of the proceeds from this set will go to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).” The set includes Drew (a darker pink), Carrie (a lighter pink) and their Cuticle Oil.
How great are both of these for doing this for the month of October? I know there are LOTS of polish companies doing the same, or something similar, for the month of October, but these are the only 2 that I have purchased something from.
Onto the mani 🙂
Isn’t it beautiful?! I am absolutely in LOVE with this mani. Carrie is a perfect base colour for Love My Tatas 😀 Love My Tatas is an extremely shimmery polish that has a slightly tinted base. The shimmer is goldy-pink and it has almost rose-gold hexes and squares in it 🙂 These were a little tricky to get onto the nail but all in all I absolutely love this glitter and can see myself using it often!
If you love Love My Tatas as much as me, hurry on over to the 365 Days of Color shop and pick yourself up a bottle, they are limited edition! She is only selling them for the month of October, and when stock runs out, that’s it!
P.S. — I have only filed my nails once since my break to try to get them more even in length. I am really loving them at this length — what do you guys think?
