About Me

My photo
Roseau, Dominica
I love nails and everything nails. This blog will be mostly about nails but I will through in some of my other creative abilities as well. I am from the nature island of the Caribbean Dominica. I live in the city Roseau. I developed and interest in nails since about 12 or maybe even before and I have been into it ever since. I must confess that I took a long break from it for reasons I have no idea. I think I just got lazy for a bit and this is a huge regret I have. But I'll make up for it.

Breast Cancer Awareness

The Month of October is recognised as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I did not catch the Go Pink Wednesdays notice on time so I could not join in but I wanted to do one of my own anyway.
In Dominica (my lovely island) to support people who have been diagnosed with the disease there are a number of activities taking place this month. There was a walk last week dubbed "Walk for the cure"
One thing that many people are not aware of is that men are also at risk of getting breast cancer. It is about 100 times less common among men than among women and risk of getting breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.
In this regard, I painted the tip of my index finger blue in support for the men who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
I used:
Santee's Baby Pink and Stamped with Jewellery Red which has a nice shimmer to it.

A ribbon design form an XL Stamping Plate.

Nabi's Crack Nail Lacquer on the tips.

I must applaud all the companies who have made great effort to join in the cause for a cure like O-P-I, Essie, Avon Orly, China Glaze etc.

I must say this is not my best stamping work but...
Thanks for stopping by.
