Hi Lovelies! Sorry I have been behind in my posts lately cos I have been away for two weekends in a row… 🙂
This week, Teal Tuesday is especially meaningful as we are raising awareness for ovarian cancer. Teal is the ribbon color for awareness and support of ovarian cancer and September is the National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.
Some information on Ovarian Cancer that we might not be aware of from their website –
Ovarian Cancer is one of the most deadly of women’s cancers. Each year, approximately 21,880 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer. In 2010, approximately 13,850 women will die in the United States from ovarian cancer. Many women don’t seek help until the disease has begun to spread, but if detected at its earliest stage, the five-year survival rate is more than 93%. Recent research suggests that together the four symptoms of: bloating, pelvic or abdominal pain, difficulty eating or feeling full quickly and urinary urgency or frequency may be associated with ovarian cancer.
Anyway, on with the nail stuff!
This mani almost did not happen as I just got my nail mail on Tuesday which consisted of Hits Holo blue and Klean Colour’s Holo Chrome and REALLY wanted to swatch it.
I used both of them and did a gradation glitter mani. Then I got to thinking, how about a duochrome holo? Wouldn’t that be totally blingtastic!? So I topped this with Girly Bit’s Street Magic. This combination yielded a blingtastic, duo chrome holo that flashes blue, green, gold, holo…. and then stamped it with BM ribbon plate in silver.
Check it out!
How do you find the effect?
Would you try a duochrome-holo?
