PCOS Awareness Month

September is PCOS Awareness month. PCOS stands for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. Nory over at Fierce Makeup and Nails asked if anyone would like to participate in doing a teal mani to show our support for PCOS Awareness month. 
Most of you don't know that I was actually tested to see if I had PCOS about a year ago, thankfully I do not but it was very scary to think that it could be a possibility. So, of course this mani was right up my alley and I had to show my support.

This mani ended up turning out better than I had imagined! For each nail there is actually a meaning behind the design.

For the thumb I chose to do the teal ribbon by using some loose glitter I had. The thumb represents the ribbon and the support that this cause has.

For my index finger I have two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and I stamped using BM-201 with Butter London Slapper (the perfect teal might I add). My middle finger is the same colors but opposite. I chose this stamp because I know that PCOS can be a struggle for women and they may encounter quite a few bumpy roads that are forever changing.

My ring finger is a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and a loose glitter gradient of teal glitter. This represents how hopefully, the women with POCS, their symptoms can slowly fade.

My pinkie finger is a base of Butter London Slapper with a coat of Nicole by OPI Somebody Teal Love. This finger represents the light, or shimmer in this case, at the end of the battle against PCOS.
