Polish Us Pink

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. It was a busy, tiring, yet refreshing weekend for me. Friday, my bff and I attended Oprah's Lifeclass featuring Joel Osteen. It was so AWESOME! It's going to air October 28th. Make sure to watch, it's going to be great! Then, later that evening my friend Erika and I attended Lakewood Church's Fashion Event sponsored by Dillards Department Store. Oh, a shout out to the Grand Lady! She makes homemade body scrubs, body oils, and soaps. Awesome lady she is. I talked to her briefly about Funky Nails and some things I want to do. She gave me a suggestion on how to do what I want to do. While I only spoke to her briefly, I was impressed that she would help someone she doesn't know. A woman uplifting her sister is what I'm gonna call it. :D Saturday, Erika and I went back (it was a 2 day event) to hear Christine Caine from Australia. She was just AWESOME! She has an awesome testimony and powerful message. If you haven't heard of her, she's worth the google search. Sunday, I went back to church. Wow, I've never in my life been to church 3 days in a row. Yay, Minnie! As you can see I was busy, busy, busy! Ok, on to the post.

As most of us know October is breast cancer awareness month. So, to raise awareness myself and many other lovely lady bloggers are Participating in Polish Us Pink. I cannot stress enough the importance of mammograms and self self exams. Let's all do our part and spread the awareness. If you or anyone you know needs information about breast cancer you can click on the links below to take you directly to their sites.

Today's mani is quite the opposite of last weeks soft romantic pink. This is a sheer black base with pink glass fleck and magenta hex glitter. Quite sexy. I don't know why but as soon as I put this on Santana's Maria Maria came to mind. I wanted to put on some black fishnet stocking and stilettos. Haha! Ok, on to the mani. Pictures do not do this mani justice, the pink glass fleck just sparkles like no tomorrow! I used a black base color, one coat of this and topped with Poshe TC. I'm using the same pic twice just rotated because it seems to bring out the colors in a different way.

Have a great day! D


  1. Love! The glitter looks like it's suspended in glass!

  2. I loooove it! Haha Santana's Maria Maria is SO APPROPRIATE!
