Nail Art for Wear It Pink! Breast Cancer Campaign 2012

Hi everyone!

Yes I know it's strange me posting on a Thursday, this is just a little extra post as I've done my nails tonight, so I thought I'd share them with you.

I hope you noticed my new header!  I'm super-pleased with it, I haven't got all the fancy schmancy photoshop etc, so I was lucky that I'd taken a nice pic of a butterfly on a road while I was out on a walk, and I could add some text with my greeting card software.  Work with what you've got, right?

Anyway, tomorrow is 'Wear It Pink' day at work, you donate £2 and you get to wear pink, pretty much everyone at work does it, even the fellas!  Some people go in fancy dress, but I'm just wearing a pink jumper and some red bootcut corduroys, so fetching lol!  If you want to find out more about this incredibly worthy cause, you can at http://www.wearitpink.co.uk/

But of course I had to do something with my nails - I've kept it relatively simple (for me) and gone with a Bundle Monster stamp BM321 from their 2012 collection.  It was the obvious choice really. 

This is what I came up with:

I started off with an experimental base coat of Andrea Fulerton Peel Off Varnish in red, which you can't see, because I covered it with the lovely opaque one-coat pinkiness of OPI Mod About You.  If you've been looking for an opaque pale pink, look no further!  This is actually a little bit washed out to how it actually looks, but as it's pitch black outside, this was the closest I could get for you.

Here's a pic of the BM plate - they're so tricky to photograph without getting a reflection of yourself in it!  I nearly managed it:

To stamp with I used Konad's Princess Polish Psych Pink - I love that name!  It's super bright in the bottle, but a bit more 'normal' bright pink once stamped:

Ok, get ready for your close up, fingers:

As you can see, I also blinged it up a little bit with NYC's glitter top coat Gramercy Glitz which is pastel glitter in a peachy clear base.  A top coat of Seche Vite and I was done.  Here's the bottle shot:

To be honest, I wasn't 100% satisfied with these, the stamping isn't very crisp, there's a little bit of peely bit at the top of my ring finger, and I'd just thinned my Seche, so it blurred the stamping a little bit more....  I nearly took it off and re-did it, but then I realised...

This isn't about me or my nails.... its about raising money for this worthy charity, and if my not quite perfect nails remind of that, well then they're doing what they're supposed to, aren't they?

Until next time.....
