It’s October and That Means P-I-N-K, Especially Our Nails!

Posted on: October 9, 2014

Every October has been designated as “Breast Cancer Awareness Month”, one of the way the nation has embraced this idea is to wear pink. What better way to show our support than breaking out the pink nail polish in support of such a great cause?
Some of my favorites pinks:

Strawberry Margarita is one of OPI’s oldie but a goodie. For me it is the perfect medium pink. Just like this next one is the perfect baby pink:

This is from the Girls collection from Deborah Lippmann and it is Marnie. I get more compliments with this color than any other baby pink I wear. With only 2 coats the coverage is complete and it wears like iron.


I’d be remiss not to mention CHANEL May, not only is May my birthday month but it is my favorite pink shade from CHANEL, aptly named “May”.
The second picture show Wet n Wild Mega Last in the color CandyLicious as being a very close dupe for CHANEL May. When you are looking eyeball to eyeball, they look the same.

From butter LONDON Primrose Hill Picnic is a great everyday pink. If I had to wear pink forever, this would definetly be one of them.

Smell the Roses from L’Oreal has to be mentioned as this is my favorite ‘neutral’ pink. Another great everyday pink to wear.

I hope I’ve inspired you to get out those pink polishes you own and lets all wear pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAW). I know there are several special editions collections packaged for BCAW with some of the proceeds going for breast cancer research. Even if I don’t need another set I; always try to buy them when I can. I know it’s a good cause and I know they are so close to finding the cure, our support is needed more than ever.

What’s your favorite pink polish to wear? Will you be busting out a special pink for this month?

đź’… As always, thanks for stopping by!

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
