Pink October (Breast cancer awareness month)

19:00

Hello!


October is back *happy dance* But this doesn’t only mean roasted chestnuts, beautiful scenery and warm drinks, it’s also breast cancer awareness month. Just like last year Slovenian bloggers decided to help raise awareness about breast cancer, which takes the higher toll than any other type of cancer for women. Just like last year I cannot stress enough the importance of monthly self-examinations, so please hop on that train.

For nails, I decided to go with a pink marble design. For the base I used  Kiko multi effect 03 Cupcake Rose & Starry Crimson (coincidentally the same polish as last year). Once the base was dry, I filled a plastic cup with room temperature water and put in a drop of Barry M Silver polish. After it spread on the surface of the water, I prayed it with a body spray (anything with enough alcohol will do, for example hand sanitizers or rubbing alcohol). This caused separation and marble pattern starts to appear. Then you just dunk your nail in the water as you would with water marbling and repeat the whole process for other nails. The cleanup is not that bad since it’s not much polish in the water but next time I’ll probably use liquid latex/glue. I’m on a matte kick so of course I had to put matte top coat over it - Catrice Silk matt top coat.

Having a light box is great since you can take photos in the middle of the night if you want to (I usually do) However there are rare cases where the mani just doesn’t want to cooperate with artificial lightning which happened in this case. So in this post you get natural light photos.

Even though this is really out of my character I enjoyed wearing this delicate and subtle mani <3

    Manikura je pa čudovita. Čeprav je roza, jo čisto vidim tudi na mojih nohtih. :D

  2. Zanimivo, to pa nisem vedela, da se lak zaradi alkohola loči. Sem mislila, da je kaj drugega v sprejih, česar lak ne mara :D In lepa manikura. Meni so teli marble looki res všeč.
