October is breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is something that is very close to my heart as both my Grandmothers have suffered with this dredfull illness. Cancer has also affected other members of my family and friends in other forms. I myself have had cancerous cells removed. anyway onto what i am doing to show my suport.
Over on twitter a few of us are doing pink nail designs posting and retweeting each others. This was all organised by the lovely Josephine Jakobs. there have been a lot of gorgeous designs flying about. check them out using the hashtag BCAM.
First thing i did was get all my pinks out. I discovered i had quite a few pinks. Over 50 as it turned out (yes they are all different ha ha)
The first design I did I called putting the pieces back together after breast cancer. I painted all my nails white then used two square pieces of sotch tape to cover the white and painted my nail pink. For my accent nail I painted it white then used a dotting tool to create the breast Cancer ribbon.
Here it is:
For this i used: Models Own Snow White
OPI Kiss me on my tulips
Nails Inc base and Top coat
I am really pleased with how this turned out.
The next mani i have done represents hope and new beginings. Here is what i did: I painted all my nails in pink then using a nail art pen drew on the outline of the butterfly wings and filled in the tip of my finger. I then used a lighter pink to put small random shapes inside the black outline and dots on the tips. For my accent finger i stuck pink gems (although they look clear in the pics) in the shape of the Breast Cancer ribbon.
Here it is:
For this I used: Models Own Bubblegum
Models Own Strawberry Tart
Models Own nail art pen (black)
Nails Inc base and Top coat.
I am very pleased with this design.
I plan on doing more BCAM nail art through out October keep your eye on my twitter for future designs. I couldnt wait any longer to share this with you.
Maybe you would like to join in this great awareness project just use the hashtag BCAM on twitter and @josephineJakobs, she is planning to do somthing with all the designs.
I am really enjoying creating these designs and seeing everyone elses.
Thanks for looking I hope you enjoy this as much as i enjoyed creating it.
