October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Okay, okay...I know I'm super late with this as October is almost over and I know I'm super lame since I promised more frequent posting, and it's been a month since I have done anything. Anyway, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! YAY! Feel your boobies! Save the tatas! As someone who has had a family member suffer from breast cancer, this is very important to me. My grandma on my mom's side had a mastectomy a few years ago and went through a round of chemotherapy and I'm glad to report that she is cancer free! So in honor of her, and her struggle - I will be doing my first 5k at the end of this month! I might not be able to run the whole thing...and will probably die doing it - but I'm super excited to do something this month as a tribute to her.

Since PINK is the color for breast cancer awareness, I decided to do my nails in this hot pink color I received as a freebie in a blog sale purchase the other day. It's called Fire from L.A. Colors. I usually don't wear loud colors. Most of my nail polishes are various shades of red and neutral blush pinks. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this color. I've always been an OPI girl but, unfortunately I haven't found them on island to purchase and for some reason nail polish isn't allowed to be shipped internationally (at least that's what MAC says)...but since I received this one in the mail - I guess there are ways around that ;) And hell, free is free! The polish is actually pretty sheer and I had to put on three coats to make it this vibrant but it was totally worth it! These were taken inside, with the flash on...and I would give you pics of it in natural light but it is presently raining and natural light to be seen here! Bear with me, my nails are still growing and healing from the acrylics I had on last month!

I actually really love this polish and while waiting for this to dry, I looked up the other colors in their line and they have quite a few that I want now! At $1.50-$2 a piece on - I really HOPE that they can ship them here! What do y'all think?
