Hello my new followers! I am so excited you have joined Color Issue!
So, so excited!
I hope you had a fantastic weekend! I don't want to minimize the great giveaway which is in the post below...but I just had to share something dear to my heart!
Did you know that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month?
Breast cancer runs in my family.
My grandmother had it at the age of 50...and thankfully has been cancer free for 25 years!
Breast cancer is real. It effects millions of women each day. It can happen to anyone.
So to honor these brave and strong women during this special month...
I decided to wear a little pink in a very glitzy way!
-any kind of glitter (I used the martha stewart kind)
-clear nail polish
1.) Pick out your color. Naturally mine was pink!
2.) Put a nice, thick layer of clear nail polish on and sprinkle to your hearts content
(i laid a piece of paper under my hand to catch all the extra)!
The glitter I chose was more like sparkly strips,
which I didn't realize laid a little rough until after the fact...
So I had to flatten them by softly pressing on it, just to seal it on there nice and tight.
You could still do this with powder glitter as well, just to give it that extra "sealage"
3.) Add a nice extra thick coat of clear polish on the top and there ya go!
p.s. don't mind my crooked middle finger...its like that on both hands?!?! Funky, I know. I debated whether or not to put this picture up b/c it makes my hand look gigantic (its the angle I promise!); but it shows the polish so nicely, I just had to!
Lastly, a little goes a long way with this stuff! So make sure you put all that extra glitter
(that didn't stick) back in its rightful place for next time!
