Pink Wednesday - Breast Cancer Awareness

Hello there!  This morning when I was checking up on the many blogs I follow, I noticed a lot of my favorite bloggers were doing Pink Wednesday for Breast Cancer Awareness month.  I immediately loved this idea of raising awareness for breast cancer by wearing something I love so much...nail polish!!  Now I generally am not a huge fan of pink nail polish but I definitely have plenty.  It is not that I don't like pink nail polish, I just tend to not like it on myself.  I feel like it kind of gives me lobster hands.  (If you don't know what lobster hands are...it is when your skin looks pink/red based on the nail polish you are wearing.)  So, I decided to throw out the window that I am not a fan of pink and take this on, especially for the cause at hand.  I have said it before but I just LOVE the polish community!  A bunch of bloggers have come together to raise awareness.  How awesome is that??!!  This Pink Wednesday thing was initiated by Finger Painting Fingers.  Please click this link to find out more on how to participate.

Okay, so I pick an untried which is OPI Pedal Faster Suzi.  This is a really pretty pink with silver and pink shimmer in it.  I still feel like it made my hands look red though.  Let me know what you think and if you know of a pink that would maybe better suit my skin tone.  (or if I am just nuts!)


I wanted to add one thing.  I know life can be busy (trust me!) and we often forget to do things but please, do a monthly self-breast exam!  If you have a smart phone or even use Outlook on the computer, set a date every month to be reminded to do one.  This is one of the best things we can do for early intervention and it only takes minutes!  

Thanks for stopping by and if you'd like to join in, feel free.  

Please check out the others participating in this!

  3. Pedal Faster Suzi is my favorite pink polish of all time:) Thanks for reminding me that I can wear it one of these Wednesdays! Yipppee. A great reason to pull out a favorite again. I think it looks great on you - not sure what you are thinking. But sometimes we just aren't a fan when we look down at our hands with certain colors on. Maybe try more of a magenta?? Have you seen China Glaze Sweet Temptation? It's a pretty pink with iridescent purple mixed in. It's always at Sally's. I have it and love it!

    1. Since I took so long to reply...looking back at these photos I am not seeing the lobster hands. I think also at this point that pink is growing on me! I will have to look out for Sweet Temptation. Sounds lovely! :)
