Breast Cancer Awareness Nails Part 2

Check out my Followers Appreciation Giveaway! Click HERE to check it out! 

A couple days ago I completed a set of breast cancer awareness (BCA) nails that was super easy to do. When my best friend Alex saw it, we started talking about other "Cause" nails that we can do. Expect me to create something for Movember! Anyways, I told her I wanted to do another breast cancer awareness nails and told her my idea to create "Puzzle nails" that incorporates a BCA theme. I'm not too sure what the technical term for it is, but it's when you put all 5 finger nails together to essentially create a "bigger image", like a puzzle. Anyways, rather than describing, why not show it to you!

The three fingers with the bodies represent different body shapes (curvy, fit, and skinny) because breast cancer affects any women no matter their shape and size. On the pinky, I painted the pink ribbon for the representation of the cause. Finally on the thumb, it has a woman's head when put above the body fingers, it creates the "big picture". Want to see how it looks, read on! 

  • Shades of Pink Polishes
    • Julep "Reese"
    • Julep "Niecy"
    • Julep " Eva"
  • White Polish
    • Julep "Kate"
  • Black Polish
    • Julep "Brandt"
  • Yellow Polish
    • Julep "Daisy"
  • Beige Polish
    • Yves Rocher "Rose" 
  • Nail Art Brush
  • Dotter

I'm so glad that this turned out better than I envisioned. I kept the bras nice and simple just because I did this right before bed time. If you want to do it,  you can definitely add more detail! The downside is that I didn't let the artwork to dry fully and it smudged! Boo! But at least I took the pictures before I ruined it! 

Anyways, what do you think of them?
