Models Own Cerise Shine and Pink Veneer
Regular people like myself are encouraged to post a #maniselfie on Instagram and other social media and use the hashtag #NailBreastCancer to help raise awareness. You can text NAIL10 followed by £1, £2, £3, £5 or whichever amount you'd like to donate to 70070. If you'd prefer, you can donate £3 to Cancer Research UK by texting BEAT to 70200 but it's so easy to donate through text so there really is no excuse so just choose whichever charity you feel is best for you.
Pop on under the cut to read more about how the nails were done :-)
For the ring finger design, I painted with the black first, to create a crisp outline for the ribbon, then applied the pink polish on top once the black was dry. Once the pink was dry, I added the line of white to give the design some extra dimension. I used my usual detailing brush for all of this work. It takes a while to do because you have to wait for all the polishes to dry but I think it's worth it. If you're impatient, I'm sure there are some decals or wraps you could use to get a similar effect.
Now of course you don't have to do anything as detailed or time consuming to help show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness but just paint your nails your favourite shade of pink and post to instagram and elsewhere using the hashtags #nailbreastcancer #maniselfie and remember to share the information to donate as well!
I hope you've enjoyed this post and I'm aware that this post is rather UK-centric but here's some numbers for those in the South and the US -
IRELAND - Text CURE to 50300 to donate €4 (Breast Cancer Ireland)
USA - Text HOPE to 20222 to donate $5 (American Cancer Society)
I'm sure there are far more charities out there who deserve your donation so like I said before, so I little google search and see which one you think is best for you, these are just a few suggestions. Until next time :-)
