Breast Cancer Awareness- Pink Ribbon Nail Art

I meant to post this a few days ago but I've been really busy lately. I had a huge essay on medieval times due. Anyway, I wanted to do a Breast Cancer Awareness manicure before October is over. I really liked this manicure, it is simple but people still realized what it stood for. I used Elf Metallic Pink for the base colour and L.A. Colors Art Deco Baby Pink for the dots. There are a variety of things you can use as a dotting tool, but I used a pencil for this manicure. Elf Metallic Pink was perfect in two coats and is a bright pink with a slight blue flash. It didn't have any brushstrokes and application was smooth.

This picture was taken after about 4-5 days of wear and this polish really held up well. I wore it without topcoat for 2 days and I didn't get any chips or tip wear. By day five I did get tip wear but it wasn't horrible. Pretty impressive for a polish that is only one dollar!

Here are a few facts about breast cancer:
  • Ninety-six percent of women who find and treat breast cancer early will be cancer-free after five years. 
  • You are never too young to develop breast cancer! Breast Self-Exam should begin by the age of twenty. 
  • Approximately 1400 cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in men in 2000 and 400 of those men will die.
I was surprised by the last fact. Most people don't think about men getting breast cancer!

Thanks for reading!
Peace and Love,


  1. My aunt picked it up for me at Ross. It was part of a set of three polishes. I believe you can find them at Kmart. That's the only place I've seen them. You can also order from http://www.eyeslipsface.com/makeup/nails/elf_nail_polish

    The picture in this post was taken at about 4 or 5 days wear so they hold up pretty well. I only had slight tip wear. The best part is they're only a dollar!
