Breast Cancer Awareness

Today, I have a manicure to share with you in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Breast cancer is the second most diagnosed cancer among American women, and it is estimated that it will affect 1 in 8 women over their lifetime.  Early detection of breast cancer is key to helping save more lives.  Get to know your body, do self breast exams every month.  At the end of this post, I will have links to resources if you would like more information. 

Now on to the nails...

I finally got around to doing the saran-wrap marble method...and I love it! It's so easy and I will definitely be doing this again.  I started with a two coats of Zoya Shelby, when that was dry, I added a coat of Zoya Reagan and sponged it off using a small piece of balled up saran-wrap.  It's best to work one nail at a time because the polish must be wet to adhere to the saran-wrap, and use a new piece of saran-wrap for each nail. 

I added a coat of Fairy Dust by China Glaze and the a coat of Seche Vite.  For the words and the ribbon, I used acrylic paints and a small detail brush from MASH.

I wish my words were a bit neater, but I think it's good for my first attempt.
