Go Pink Wednesday: Icing Power to the Pink

Hello my friends.  Here we are, on the second Wednesday in October already!  This is the second installment for Go Pink Wednesdays.  Andrea from Finger Painting Fingers extended an invitation to everyone to sport pink nails to help raise awareness for breast cancer.  You don't have to be a blogger to participate.  Share your pink nails on Finger Painting Fingers Facebook page and/or my Facebook page.  

Today the pink polish I chose is from Icing and it is called Power to the Pink.  It is an in-your-face neon with silver irridescent glitter in it.  This was four coats and you can still see some visible nail line.  I really love how bright this is but the polish is a tad hard to work with.  I might add thinner next time I use it as that seems to be a cure-all for many polishes.  I also used two coats of Seche Vite as it was pretty gritty after the first.  I probably should have used a coat of Gelous first and then Seche Vite.  Without top coat, this does dry matte just like any neon.  Also I must confess, I adjusted the brightness in this to get the color accurate.  As I've mentioned before, neons are very hard to photograph and without editing it, it was not even close to accurate color-wise.  



Also, I wanted to provide a great link for more info on breast cancer.  This website has great info on how you can help, different programs, FAQs, etc.  http://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/

Get out your pink nail polish and lets see some of those pink manis!
