Polish Days: Sentimental Pinks

I'm thrilled to be doing my first Polish Days challenge. You can find more information on this at Polly Polish. So this month's theme is called Sentimental, so your manicure must represent something well sentimental. Be it the polish itself or the design. I'm choosing to go with the design. What better way to celebrate October than with a breast cancer awareness manicure that brings me back to an aunt of mine who suffered and died from cancer. She was indeed loved by our family. 






These polishes are all from the China Glaze United in Purpose Breast Cancer Awareness 2012 collection. From left to right: Hopeful, Exquisite, and Beauty Within. I just used two coats of Hopeful as the base colour and then sponged on Exquisite up to 3/4 of the nail bed with Beauty Within concentration more to the tips.


Hope you enjoyed! See what they lovely ladies came up with for their Sentimental Polish Days!

  5. Beautiful manicure! I have a friend going through cancer now that started with breast cancer 7 years ago when she was only 23!! This is the third time she's fighting it so I think of her when I see a manicure like yours :)

Happy One Year Blogoversary!

One year already? OMG! Time really flies when you're having fun . I really enjoyed my one year with you. I've made new friends, improved on my nail and makeup techniques, tried new trends and products, discovered I love nail art (can you tell) and the list goes on. But most importantly I want to thank you all for your support and kind words that kept me going. Honestly there were some times when I was down since I didn't feel my articles and pictures were great but you stuck in with me and for that I say thank you. But I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass. 

Nail Challenge Day 10: Blue Black Gradient Nails

Just when I thought my Rainbow nails were my favourite so far in the challenge, along came the gradient nails and replaced my love in an instant. I couldn't believe how stunning the combination of black and blue would look together. It's a truly simple design that is very popular with the DIY nail polish crowd.
