Breast Cancer Awareness Fight On!

Hello Lovelies!!! Today is the last Wednesday of October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Although the month is over, the cause is not. Remember to do your self check and ensure that your loved ones do the same. Awareness is the key and early detection has proven to be instrumental in receiving a positive prognosis. Check out the Susan G. Koman Foundation website HERE. They have an extensive amount of information related to early detection, statistics, risk factors, prevention, and treatment.

As an update on my post from last week, I have an appointment scheduled for an ultrasound and mammogram for Tuesday, November 4th. I will keep you guys posted about the results. Thank you so much for your prayers, concern, and support during this difficult time.

I recently received these beautiful polishes from an indie brand called PolisHaus. I have never tried this brand before, but these breast cancer awareness polishes immediately caught my eyes.  According to the maker's site, this collection of four polishes were created in conjunction with another indie brand, Black Luna Lacquer. What's more awesome than the beautiful collection these ladies created? Well, it's the fact that they have pledged to donate 50% of the proceeds to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Today's manicure features 2 of the 3 polishes I have.

I started with two coats of Stronger, a bright salmon pink creme color. The first coat was a tad streaky when applied; however, the second coat went on perfectly and everything leveled out beautifully. I really like this shade of pink, as it has that peachy/coral type feel and is absolutely perfect with my complexion. Of course, this isn't to say this won't look amazing on a variety of other skin tones as well. This is 2 coats and no topcoat below.

To complete the manicure, I added accent nails with 3 coats of Fight On, a grey crelly polish with pink, purple, and silver glitters.  I also stamped the index finger using a white polish and BM-321 and added 2 white circular studs from Pueen Cosmetics on the pinky finger.

I love the way the colors in these polishes compliment one another. What do you think?


Have a Happy Hump Day!
