Beauty // Pink Ribbon Nail Art For Breast Cancer Awareness

Pink breast cancer awareness nails

October is by far my favorite month because HALLOWEEN, of course, but it’s also Breast Cancer Awareness month, so I couldn’t NOT mention it in some form or another because it’s important to all of us and we all know someone affected by this terrible disease {and we all hope that it never comes after us}. And since I don’t really share nail art tutorials anymore, I thought this pink manicure by Lauren B. Beauty for Breast Cancer Awareness was a nice way to merge the two together. And though it’s clearly not curing cancer, bringing more attention to it is important so we can someday find a cure…

Using three pink shades, City of Angels, Clueless in 90210, #ImSoLA, Lauren B. Beauty created a pink ribbon accent nail and layered it with an array of different colors in the form of polka dots. You can add a ribbon on every nail, two nails, or just one accent nail like they did, and/or create other accent nails to go with it, like the rockstud nail right next to it… and here’s a quick step-by-step for a little inspiration…

Step 5: Apply Lauren B’s Gel-like Top Coat for a perfect long-lasting manicure! Let dry for 3-4 min.

Optional: For some extra flare, add some silver studs using a small dab of topcoat to the nail and then apply the studs.
