Breast Cancer Awareness Nails

Hey everyone!

Today is going to be a late post since I decided at the last minute that I was going to do my nails today haha. We still don't have heat in our house, so I've been lounging in my room in my robe surfing the interbubbles (what I call the Internet lol). It's been getting so cold!

For today's mani, I did a pink manicure for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is actually my first time doing them as well. I personally don't know anyone who has had breast cancer, but I have recently lost a close family member to cancer, so I know how it feels to lose someone to cancer and how important it is to spread awareness about cancer.

I created a stained glass look for these nails. I painted two coats of L.A. Colors Bright Pink as the base color. For the stained glass effect, I used my detail brush and made random shapes on the nail using Wet n Wild's Tickled Pink. For the accent nail, I freehanded a white ribbon with my detail brush using Wet n Wild's French White Creme.

I think these are really cute. I wish I had painted the ribbon the other way so I wouldn't have to rotate my photos, but it's okay. I really love the base color. I'll definitely be posting Bright Pink in the future to show you all how pretty it is!

What do you think of this design? Have you done Breast Cancer Awareness nails?

Thanks for reading!

  1. These are lovely, Tyeisha! I especially love how well you incorporated the ribbon--it's noticeable, but it totally fits with the rest of the design. Awesome job!
