World Ovarian Cancer Day - 8 May 2013

To show some support for the first World Ovarian Cancer Day I have created an Art Deco Look using Teal - as that is the colour for the day.

More details after the jump.

Ovarian Cancer can affect any woman and if caught early enough is treatable with a good chance of survival.  Unfortunately there are still many cases where the disease is not caught early and chances of surviving 5 years from the initial diagnosis are greatly reduced.  Early detection and treatment obviously need a lot more research and there are links in the graphic above for more information.

When it was suggested on Crumpet's Nail Tarts Facebook page that the members do a mani using teal to show their support and raise awareness for this day I thought "I can do that".  This is the finished result:

I used Barry M Teal as the base and stamped with Barry M Silver Foil over my index, ring and little fingers with Gals image plate GA35.  I filled in the little squares in the design with Barry M Red Glitter, Barry M Boots Limited Edition Silver Glitter and Barry M Gold Boots Xmas Limited Edition 2012.

The triangular design on my thumb and middle finger was created using the Barry M Nail Art pens in Black and Silver.  The red triangle is filled with Barry M Red Glitter and the gold dots were done with a cocktail stick and the Limited Edition Barry M Gold mentioned already.
