Today it is Nail Art Sunday at LeLack, as every sunday. The today´s theme is focused on rising awareness of breast cancer and the pink ribbon campaign, just like the United in Pink initiative that Lacky Corner is hosting this week.
poison and optimism
Cancer is a devastating disease. In your fight against the poisonous sickness you need to have an optimism. An optimism that you someday will get well, and an optimism that enables you to see things positive in the everyday life you are living in the middle of the crisis. At least that is how I feel about the frustrating time of sickness I’m going through myself at the moment. (Not cancer though…) And I wanted to capture this feeling in the nail art for today.
inspired by joanne
I saw an awesome poison mani at the blog Witch Nails the other day which I used as inspiration for this manicure. (By the way, this is the first time ever I saw a good use of crackle polish.) Then I added an accent nail with flowers I painted with some dotting tools.
For this manicure I started with the pink Essie Too Taboo and IsaDora Jugend Black. Then I topped everything with the crackle polish IsaDora Black Tag. The poison touch was then finalized with some extra Essie Too Taboo at the tips.
The accent nail has China Glaze Friends Forever Right? as base color, then I used the same pink and black polishes as on the other nails to dot the flowers. Finally I added a hint of neon green in the middle, China Glaze Grass Is Lime Greener.
