For the month of October, I try to show my support for Breast Cancer Awareness by wearing pink nail polish throughout the month. I've done this for the past few years. This year is no different. I've been very blessed that none of my immediate friends and family have been impacted by breast cancer. But that doesn't mean I don't help in the fight. Earlier this week, as I was posting about Breast Cancer Awareness, I e-met one of my Twitter followers. As as fate would have it, she was scheduled to start a new round of chemotherapy on October 1st, So I decided to dedicated my 2013 BCA manicures to "lovenailpolish3". I'm praying her strength and healing.
For my first manicure, I was determined to find and use the OPI 2013 Pink of Hearts duo. Fortunately, I found it at my local Ulta ($15.95 USD). This year the OPI BCA collection was made up of OPI Pink-Ing of You, a baby pink jelly and OPI More Than A Glimmer. This collection also comes with BCA Pink Ribbon nail stickers and stick on gems. While these two polishes would have been enough, I just felt the need for another color, so I pulled from my stash a favorite pink from 2012-OPI If You Moust, You Moust (2013 Minnie Mouse Collection)
|L to R: Pink-In of You, More Than A Glitter, If You Moust, You Moust|
For my first BCA manicure, I layered More Than a Glitter over Pink-Ing of You as my accent nails. For the remaining fingers, If You Moust, You Moust.
This is one of those manicures, that I really enjoyed. I admired it throughout the day. I need to layer this glitter bomb with other color combinations.
Here is a close up bottle shot. There is blue, pink, gold, white green, and silver multi-sized glitters. I can certainly think of other color combinations.
