Tag Archives: Go Pink

Week 4…. already!! Only 1 more week left in our joint Go Pink effort to in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month.  A whole slew of bloggers are sharing our pink manis every Wednesday throughout October… which is quickly nearing an end.

Today I wanted to bring you another fun mani!

Let’s start with this gorgeous, shiny and summery colour, which has totally won over my heart. Nubar’s Rouge, a hot pink creme polish, was a big surprise for me in a fall collection (read about it here!), but it has become a big favourite of mine. Hot pink to brighten up a dreary fall day? YES please!!

Isn’t it amazing?? Look at that bright and happy pink goodness! (Ok now I have just convinced myself I need to change polish. Again. To that beauty. And it’s late. LOL)

Now wait till you see how incredible Rouge looks as a base for this stunning gradient. Shimmer Sophie over Rouge!!

I so did not want to take that off!!! It is So incredibly beautiful!!! Even more so in real life!

To learn more about prevention, go to the Canadian Cancer Society or to the American Cancer Society.

Together we can make a difference!

Are you liking the pink manis so far? 🙂

In honour of our Go Pink Wednesday effort, I am thrilled to share a guest post by my good friend / sometime-guest-blogger Mai! ❤

It’s Week 3 (already!) of the Go Pink Breast Cancer awareness month, in support of breast cancer awareness which is a cause near and dear to my heart.

This week’s pink is Zoya Maya, which I initially picked up as it’s the closest Zoya to my name, Mai.  I was super thrilled when Maya arrived, the pinky colour was unlike anything in my collection, and it’s even better on the nail.

Maya is a beautiful soft watermelon pink that is just a treat on my nails.  While not a true jelly, this polish really has a great squishiness that makes me think this is some sort of a cream-jelly hybrid, a crelly I think they’re called?  This pink is perfect for those hot summer days with the sun on your shoulders, or as I’ve found, a perfect compliment to the gorgeous fuzzy-grey-sweater cooler fall weather we’ve been having.  I’m really impressed with Zoya’s formula as it was a breeze to apply, and is shown with just two coats and Essie Good to Go as the incredible shiny topcoat.  There is something I really like about Zoya’s brushes, too, they seem easier for my style of application.  I have to say, I also really like the shape of the Zoya bottles.  Simple, elegant, and unique.  The above photo was taken on a bright cloudy day and I found it best captured the actual polish colour on my nails.

This is a post that makes me think about my loved ones, here and gone.  Both the Canadian Cancer Society and the American Cancer Society have a wealth of information that can help save lives. Please visit their great websites.

Breast cancer is a horrible, horrible disease that is best treated with early detection.  Know yourself, know your body, and give your mom, aunt, sister, and girlfriends an extra tight hug the next time you see them.

Wow, we are already in week 2 of our joint Go Pink effort to in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Andrea from Finger Painting Fingers (who led this amazing effort!) and a whole slew of bloggers are sharing our pink manis every Wednesday throughout October!

Today I bring you some of my favourite pink manicures.

First up, one of my very favourite “near-nudes” that I have previously written about here, A England’s Iseult. This stunning, delicate pink polish is perfect for everything from a wedding mani to an office-appropriate mani.

Next I have another stunner, this time from piCture pOlish. I featured this polish as part of piCture pOlish’s Blogfest! Here is Tease! Is this silver microglitter not amazing?

And because this amazing polish sparkles so incredibly, here is a shot in the sun:

The next mani isn’t technically pink as its base colour, Essie’s Sure Shot, leans fuchsia with a shimmer, but together, Lynnderella’s Boy Girl Party and Sure Shot sure look pink together!! I just LOVE this combo!! (see all the pics here)

So what is your favourite pink polish of all time?

Today marks the first Wednesday in our joint Go Pink effort to in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month. In honour of this month, more than 25 bloggers have joined Andrea from Finger Painting Fingers (who led this amazing effort!), and we will be sharing our pink manis every Wednesday throughout October!
For my first pink mani, I bring you this brand new, gorgeous polish from Aphrodite Lacquers, Fleurir.
This beauty is part of Aphrodite Lacquers’ latest collection that only launched yesterday, called Printemps a Paris, a collection after my own heart. These seven polishes are all white-based, pastel-hued, soft, springy shades that are an amazing break from the deep and vampy shades that have launched for fall.

I previously blogged about the release of this pretty collection here.

And here is the first polish from Printemps a Paris, Fleurier:

In daylight/shade

Do you see the beautiful pink base and those stunning shimmers?

Aphrodite Lacquers describes this polish as a pastel pink base with pink hidden shimmer and  pink/lavender/fuchsia glitters. It is so girly and pretty!!

Here is another shot to show the delicate yet noticeable shimmer:

Finally…. a bottle shot:

This polish, along with the rest of the Printemps a Paris collection, is available on Aphrodite’s Etsy show now!! Follow her on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news.

And please participate by sharing your pink manis on my Facebook page throughout October!
