Monday Mani PaA - Breast Cancer Awareness

This week I decided to get this mani for the challenge a little earlier last week so I could post early in the morning on my blog for you guys :)
The theme was in honor of the Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Those challenges always put me to think what I am gonna use and how I am gonna show my creative side. First thing came to my mind was the pink ribbon. And as I've told you guys before here. I am not good at free hand nail art. Don't even have those tiny brushes for it and all that.
I then went through my stamping plates to see if they had any ribbons there and I came across konad plate M63 that was a full design and I could kinda see ribbons getting untangled there.
I used Color Club Hot Like Lava from the collection Foiled. And oh boy is that something really top noche for stamping!!! Such a great polish to do your designs.

 Forgot to take a picture of my thumb but just cause some of you asked me. When I do any nail art where I put some accent on my ring finger you bet I have the same one om my thumb. Always!

 And if you are wondering what's my base color. Here you have the bottle. It's Essie Neo Whimsical. Super pretty cream baby pink but .... I have to tell you those are 3 coats of that baby. I usually love Essie's nail polishes. But for me they are either super good to apply or a disaster. I had a lot of trouble applying that polish. So thin, so streaky and dragging. I got frustrated and disappointed big time cause it's such a pretty pink. However, despite all of that I made it to work. And here is a picture of it by itself. Sorry for the dry cuticles.

BC: Essie
Base Color: Lady Like
Design: M63
Stamping: Color Club Hot Like Lava
TC: 0-60

Hope you guys like that mani as much as I do! I wore that for 4 straight days.
Thanks to those who submmited your Halloween themed manicure pictures for the contest. Submmisions are now CLOSED. But don't worry I might be having more fun coming up like .... a giveaway. Plus you guys will get to vote for the pictures submmited.
Happy Monday to you all!!
