MOvember & My Very First Blog Post

Well, I've done it. I've started a nail blog, and today is my first post. I'm still very new to the nail art world, so please keep that in mind as I attempt and probably fail before I get better. I'm starting simple today with an idea brought up by Teen Polish Junkie: Movember.

For those of you that don't know, November is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and the ribbon color is blue. *Edited: I had to come back and spell mustache with the "o" otherwise MOvember wouldn't make sense. Hehe.* The same way we polish lovin' ladies did pink manis for BCA, men stop shaving their moustaches for PCA and call it Movember. My husband and his co-workers decided to do this and Teen Polish Junkie thought we could show our support with moustache manis.

So, without further ado, here is my first moustache mani for Movember:

For this mani I used Sinful Colors in Cinderella, a beautiful baby blue with a pink holo shimmer, and Wet n Wild in Ebony Hates Chris. Stinks that it streaked. Anyone have any tips to avoid that?

I don't have a great camera or a light box so I tried to get a variety of pics. Here's one with a shadow to show the color a little better:

And here's one where I attempted to show the shimmer:

Last but not least, my right hand:

I'm showing my right hand because my husband painted that moustache. He's very supportive of my little nail hobby and was the first one to encourage me to start this blog. He called this the "Shahid Khan."  For those of you who aren't into football, he's the owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars and is well known for his mustache. *Disclaimer: We aren't Jags fans. My husband would never let me live it down if I didn't put that in. LoL. Steelers, baby!

So, there you have it. If you all want to join us in this little Movember adventure, feel free to share your pics on my Facebook page.

Thanks! I hope you'll come back to see more newbie mani adventures. ^_^
