Pink Nails for Breast Cancer Awareness

At a "Pink hair for Hope" party, I volunteered to paint pink fingernails for anyone who wanted to have them done.  In order to have some sort of "menu" for ladies to choose from, I did my nails in ten different pink styles.

Right hand:

*Note: I hope next time to include exactly which polishes I used, but here's a brief run-down

Left Hand:
Pinkie: Mauve base coat, then sparkly pink tip
Ring Finger:  Bright pink base coat (Sally Hansen Xtreme) with white dots (nail pen)
Middle:  Bright pink tip, clear top coat
Pointer:  diagonal half bubble-gum pink (sally Hansen) , half bright pink with white nail pen zig-zags
Thumb:  Bright pink base coat (Sally Hansen), spelled out "Hope" with white nail pen then went back with bubble-gum pink and made the "o" a heart using a toothpick "v" shape

Right Hand:
Thumb:  Marbled!  I'll do a whole post on this technique SOON!
Pointer:  White base coat, then use a toothpick to paint a pink ribbon with a toothpick
Middle:  Pink sparkles....hard to see, but I wanted to have a "calmer" option to show ladies
Ring:  Bubble-gum base coat with diagonal dotted perpendicular lines using nail pen
Pinkie:  just a calm, sparkly, pink.


  1. Wish I could have been there to get my nails done! I would have had a hard time choosing a nail style!
    Love the blog!!! :o)

  2. I also wish that I have that kind of capability to do such wonderful nail art. My cancer alternative treatment center fellaz likes this so much! Thanks for sharing!
