Two Days of Love in One

 Two important causes coincide for me today - Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day and Polish Us Pink for breast cancer. I chose a pink polish to support breast cancer awareness, which I've been blogging about every Monday in October with a blogger group. Look for my other posts on it. October 15th is also Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. In memory of all the angel babies out there...far too many...you are truly missed and we love you every day.
I lit a candle for every angel baby I know and placed my favorite gemstone, a rose quartz heart, in the center.
In Loving Memory


I added blue to the pink for all the babies. I love how it almost makes it look purple, which is a combination of the two. The pink is Maybelline Fireflyand the blue is Zoya Skylar added with a plastic marble technique I just did a tutorial on. I also topped it with my best friend Brittany's franken she made that totally rocks. It's just so fun and random and colorful I think it goes perfectly with the memory of children.

Sorry I couldn't get any good sunlight pics. It's been dingy today, fittingly. Her franken is amazing and has so many colors of glitter I can't even bring myself to try and pick them all out - including black bar glitter, large holo silver hexes, and fine holo shimmer. Pretty much my favorite polish ever.

I got an update on my Stepdad and he had his surgery to remove the cancer for a second time today. They had to remove quite a bit, but he's doing well. I just hope he can emotionally cope with the repercussions of this difficult journey. He may not have to have chemo this time around though, so that's a plus that he won't be constantly deathly sick! Let's hope Sting is gone for good (that's what he named his giant port implant for chemo lol)! I have sort of a secret project going on for him if you'd like to participate, so please contact me!

To those struggling with cancer, the loss of a loved one or your own baby...I'm sorry and I love you.

Feel free to join in the fun this month as we post a mani in support of breast cancer every Monday in October. Don't forget to tag your posts on Twitter/Instagram with #PolishUsPink!

  3. That was lovely! In loving memory of all baby angels out there! :) They will always be remembered with joy and happiness and, of course, a few tears. But never with only sadness! I hope your father gets well soon and I'm supporting everyone with cancer so they can win the battle! :D
