Movember/Gay Pride Nails

Wednesday, November 13, 2013


It's Movember! You've probably heard quite a lot about Movember by now, but it's basically a month to raise awareness and funds for men's health issues (especially prostate cancer and other male-specific cancers). A lot of guys are growing out their moustaches this month, so I decided to grow a moustache too -- on my nails, that is. 

I didn't want to be normal and put them over a plain base, so I decided to do them over a rainbow gradient. Only after I finished did I realize "hey, these could be gay pride AND Movember nails all in one!" 

So I present to you my gay pride & Movember nails!

I used Sally Hansen Blue Me Away, Sinful Colors Timbleberry, Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow, and Sephora by OPI It's Totally Karma for the gradient, then added the moustaches with Wet n Wild Black Creme. On my thumb I decided to try Jin Soon Epidote, because it's an awesome duochrome polish that I really need to swatch soon! (it looks a little odd here though)

Movember and gay pride are both great causes, and moustache nails were -- of course -- really fun to do.

Are you planning on doing moustache nails this month? (or gay pride nails... even though I guess those would be more of a June thing?) 

Also, I really did mean to do pink nails last month for breast cancer awareness, and I did but somehow the photos disappeared from my computer and I had already removed them and didn't have time to re-do them... it was a mess. If I find them I'll definitely post them, though!

Thanks for reading!
