Twinsie Tuesday: Special Edition

31 Jan

Wait, isn’t today Thursday?  Yes.  Yes it is.  Welcome to a special edition of Twinsie Tuesday.  Today marks the one year anniversary of the first ever TT post.  It snuck up on me.  To commemorate, we’re all revisiting our first TT post.  I’ve been here from the beginning, so my first post was an international polish.

Rose_mint_red (3) WLcopyI don’t have many international polishes, but I originally chose Barry M Mint Green. Of course I had to do something a little different with it this time around. Red wasn’t the most obvious choice to pair with mint green, but I think it’s pretty.

Twinsie Tuesday: Cervical Cancer Awareness

22 Jan

Did you know that January is Cervical Cancer Awareness month?  I didn’t.  Cervical cancer screening is just as important as breast cancer, skin, ovarian, prostate, colon screening and all other forms of cancer.
CervicalCancerAwareness_floral_stripes (5) WLcopyA little information for you about cervical cancer:
Each year in the United States, more than 11,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and approximately 4,000 die of the disease. While certain types of the human papillomavirus (HPV) are linked to cervical cancer, vaccines such as Gardasil® and Cervarix™ are designed to prevent infection with high-risk types of HPV and have the potential to greatly reduce the occurrence of cervical cancer.

For more information on cervical cancer, its treatment, and support, please visit Cancer Connect by clicking here.

CervicalCancerAwareness_floral_stripes (7) WLcopyTo show my support in teal and white, I went with some chunky stripes and a floral. To give myself an extra challenge, I did this design with my left hand. It was a lot trickier, but I managed. I used Milani Fresh Teal, NYX Girls White and white acrylic for the floral.

CervicalCancerAwareness_floral_stripes (8) WLcopyI think it’s safe to say that none of us enjoy our cervical cancer screenings, but hopefully we all understand how important it is. Go get your paps ladies! 🙂

Christmas Floral

24 Dec

Happy Christmas eve everyone!! I hope you’re all ready for Christmas tomorrow, as you’re pretty much out of time. I’m super excited!

I was so happy to see Mr. Candiipants “grown up floral” tutorial video.  I have always loved designs like this, but was too scared to try my hand at them.  Her tutorial really helped.Christmas_floral (8) WLcopyI practiced a bit on paper first. I have to say I’m pretty impressed with myself.

Christmas_floral (9) WLcopyI used acrylics for these because I new polish would dry up too fast. This was fairly slow going for me as it was a new design. I love it though and am already thinking of different color combination to try it in.

Christmas_floral (10) WLcopyWhat do you think of this grown up floral? Do you think you’ll try it?
