Today I have a french mani that I wore earlier this week. I wanted to do a pretty light pink mani in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month this October.
|Outdoors, full sun, no flash|
For these nails, I started of with a basecoat of NailTek followed by two coats of Sephora by OPI A True Romantic. Then I used Konad plate m19 using Konad Special White polish twice on each nail. I topped this off with a coat of Seche Vite.
From there, my original plans changed a bit. I had been planning on using a darker pink polish for the embellishment, but I realized that my K-State Wildcats were playing our biggest rival, KU, in football the next day. I have a superstitions belief that my nails must be somehow purple for us to win. I don't really believe this, but it is fun and I usually try to do something purple for games. So I used OPI Funky Donkey and Konad plate m35 to put purple hearts on the nails. We completely crushed KU, if you are interested. :) After that, I decided the mani needed a bit of sparkle so I layers one thin coat of OPI Princesses Rule! and topped it off with one more coat of Seche Vite.
Please take the time this month, and all year, to think about those people who are fighting, have beaten or have lost the fight with breast cancer. If you are interested in donating money to the cause, here is a link to the donation page at SUSAN G. KOMAN FOR THE CURE. They are a fabulous organization that funds a lot of brilliant research into treatments for breast cancer. Coming from a cancer researcher, thank you so much for any donations you are able to give. They are very much appreciated!
