Go Pink Wednesday!

Hey there everyone!
Today I've got my second Go Pink Wednesday mani, and again I am honored to be able to join together with these awesome ladies to bring awareness to such a great cause.

I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do with today's look, but I had just bought a few new pink China Glazes (they're on sale at Sally's) and I wanted to try out Rich & Famous. I started with a base coat of that and then did something different on each nail.


For my thumb I did a subtle glitter gradient using Essence Party Princess.
I did some random dotting on my index using Kleancolor Metallic Pink and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Presto Pink.
My middle finger shows my first ever encounter with striping tape. I picked up this tape from Born Pretty Store and it works great! I thought it would be perfect for this mani.
The glitter on my ring is Pure Ice Spitfire, and my pinky is just a failure, lol. I had tried to do a ribbon in a different shade of pink using my dotting tools, but it failed miserably and I didn't have time to start completely over before work, so I covered it up with white lol. I used a thin coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust to try to cover up the mistakes!




I hope you like this week's pink mani for Breast Cancer Awareness! Check out the other ladies participating <3

    1. Thanks Shannon, what a great compliment! I usually do something different on each nail because I'm so indecisive, so I'm really happy when it actually looks good together lol :D
