Manicure Monday: Pink Ribbon Nails

pinkribbon-thAs I may have mentioned in last Friday’s post, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. While Friday was about painting everything pink, today is just about my nails, with this super quick and easy mani, incorporating the symbol of Breast Cancer Awareness, the pink ribbon.

For this mani I needed two colours, one for the pink ribbon, and the other for the background. Wanting the ribbon to be the centre of attention on the hand, I decided to go with a nude pink for the background, opting for one of the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure range in 160 – Shall We Dance, which is in itself a brilliant neutral shade. Then, for the ribbon and the accent thumb, I wanted something glittery and stand out, which came in the form of a polish from Nails Inc, shade 082 – Buckingham Street. As it is a clear base it can be a little tricky to work with, but the glitter is so fine that two coats were enough on the thumb to achieve full coverage, while I used a fine paint brush with copious amounts of polish for the ribbon.

And here is how it turned out. The nude base really does allow the glittery pink to shine through, and it really is glittery, even if the bottom photo, taken with flash, doesn’t really show it. The ribbon also is the first thing you pick up on, which worked out exceptionally well.

And again, to repeat what I said on Friday, please do what you can to support Breast Cancer Awareness month. Wear something pink, paint your nails, buy a pink ribbon, or text pink to 50300 to donate €4. Anything that can be done to raise awareness or funds is always going to be welcome.
