Teal Mani for IC Awareness

Hi Goddesses

Today's mani is an awareness mani.  I feel like I should do more of these.  I'm good at doing the Depression Awareness ones, because they are close to my heart, but I feel like a lot of the others sneak up on me unawares, so I don't have the time to prepare for them.  So, I'm going to start being better at these - in a lonely world, it's important we stand together when we can.

IC stands for Interstital Cystitis.  Anyone who has ever had a bout of cystitis knows how painful it can be, but IC is worse than that - you can find out more about it here.

Fortunately I don't suffer from IC, but a lady in a nail group I'm in asked some of us to help raise awareness, and I'm happy to do that :)

Teal is the colour, and daisy is the symbol, and although I have a lot of plates that now have the ribbon on them, I was determined to freehand rather than stamp.

This mani features 2 of my polish loves - OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, THE best white ever - and OPI Fly, just SENSATIONAL !!!!  There's also a little bit of Barry M Yellow and Mint Green in there too.

The thumb is Saran Wrap / cling film - the first time I've tried this.  I was surprised how lumpy and bumpy it was before the top coat went on.

Love xx :)
