Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Fresh Lifestyle Salon & Spa in Blackheath and Islington
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a worldwide annual campaign taking place in October, involving thousands of organisations, to highlight the importance of breast cancer awareness, education and research.
There are many ways that you can raise money and show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness and here at Fresh Lifestyle Salon & Spa in Blackheath and Islington we have some fabulous pink manicure ideas for October….
Why Do We Wear Pink During Breast Cancer Awareness Month?
It all started with ribbons. Since the 19th century, ribbons have been worn in numerous colours to support efforts to raise awareness of a variety of diseases and disorders.
In the 1990s, pink ribbons were used to raise awareness around breast cancer and the colour stuck. We wear pink to honour those who have lost their battles with breast cancer and support those still to come, whilst drawing attention to the fact that there is still much more to be done to find a cure for this disease.
However, you do not only have to wear a pink ribbon, you can wear a pink top, shoes, have a pink manicure or even dye your hair pink to show your support. Check out our favourite ways to wear a pink manicure or pedicure and support Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October….
Glitter Pink Nails for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Glitter is a girl’s best friend when it comes to an eye-catching manicure. Whether your base colour is a candy floss colour or neon pink, a glittery nail polish will add the “wow” factor to your manicure.
Show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness by flashing your glittery manicure throughout October.
Pearly Pink Nails for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Breast cancer is commonly thought of as a women’s disease (although men can be affected too), so your manicure can be as “girly” as you wish.
Pearlescent pink nail colours are perfect for showcasing your flirty, feminine side whilst showing your support for the cause.
Barbie Pink Nails for Breast Cancer Awareness
One of the best pink shades for a manicure is Barbie Pink. Hot pink nails aka “Barbie nails” are making their appearance for October, and we’re in full support.
Whether you wear your Barbie pink nails plain, or add interest with polka dots or cool nail art, this bright colour will draw the eye and start up an important conversation about Breast Cancer Awareness.
Wear It Pink – Breast Cancer Awareness Nail Art
If wearing pink nails during October is too subtle for you, why not showcase your support with some Breast Cancer Awareness nail art?
Mix up pink nail polish with some funky nail art designs, or accessorise your nails with a 3D pink ribbon design.
