Breast Cancer Awareness

Hey y'all! Ryan here with a new mani for you! It's that time of the year again...the month of October is National Breast Cancer Awareness.  Fortunately, I have been blessed to not have breast cancer in my family history and have never personally known anyone with breast cancer. I am most thankful I have never lost anyone to breast cancer. But that doesn't mean I should ignore the possibilities or think I'm too young to get it.  Actress Christina Applegate was only 36 years old when she found out she had breast cancer.  It seems to be a very ignored topic with women not thinking they need to get yearly checkups.  I thought I would contribute to the awareness by doing some NBCA nails!

I created the breast cancer awareness nails by painting all nails with China Glaze "Go Go Girl" from last year's China Glaze NBCA packaging. It's a really nice pastel baby pink. It would've been evenly opaque with 3 coats but I used 4 coats. Next I put 2 coats of Essie "A Cut Above" pink hex glitter on my ring nails.  Last I used OPI "Charged Up Cherry" to create a pink ribbon on the tip of my middle finger nails. Then topped it all off with some Seche Vite!

People who go through cancer always seem to be the strongest bravest people...and I also think it helps that they have great support systems, family & friends who love them unconditionally.  I hope if I ever have to go through something as trying as cancer that I have someone who will 'love me through it'.  I for sure know my family will be there for me no matter what.  I have never been 'in love' before but I hope if I find someone to be my partner in life that they love me more if I were to go through something as difficult as that.  Alright ladies, check yourself today!  SAVE THE TATAS!!!!!!
