Nail Art Tutorial: Polish Us Pink Breast Cancer Awareness

Beauty, Fashion, Fitness & Nails



Hey there Nail Enthusiasts!

Today’s post is another fun and simple nail art design supporting Breast Cancer Awareness!

I haven’t used this pink in a while and I forgot how pretty it is!  It’s called Good Morning Hope by Essie.  It’s a soft warm, creamy pink.
For the ribbon I used Figi by Essie.  Figi is an opaque bright pastel pink.    If you’re in the market for a new shade of pink, definitely try out Good Morning Hope it’s great for all skin tones and subtle yet striking enough for the office!

I also included a few bonus designs just for fun…Feel free to add in a small line of little hearts on your pinky or bedazzle your ribbon and hearts using a sparkly glitter polish.  I used Time To Shine by  Morgan Taylor for my diamond ribbon & hearts.

To get these Trendy Nails all you need is a thin striping brush or a narrow paint brush to paint your ribbon.

It’s funny how the pink appears in different lights.  This photo was taken with natural light.  The other pictures were taken indoors.


Step 1:  I started off with a clear base coat and 1 coat of matte polish to prevent streaking.


Step 2:  Paint 2 coats of Good Morning Hope – Essie 

Step 3:  Once your nails are dry.  Take your striping brush and dip into Figi-Essie.  With one stroke make your ribbon.  If you need to make 2 strokes feel free. 🙂  Seal off your design with one coat of your favorite Dry Fast Top Coat.


Here’s the same nails but I put 1 coat of  Time To Shine by Morgan Taylor over your existing pink bow and hearts.

Hearts:  If you don’t have a dotting tool you can use a the end of a pen or even a tooth pick to make your hearts.  Dip the tip into the polish and make a small “V” shape.
