Feature Friday - Relay for Life

Happy Friday!  Tonight, we will be participating in our local Relay for Life.  We are big supporters of this cause.  I am a cancer survivor, as is my husband and mother.  And I lost my grandmother to cancer.  So we always try to support the cause every chance we get.  If you would like to support the cause through a donation, check out my sidebar.  There is a link there that will take you to the donation page.  I appreciate any support you can provide!

To further show my support, I did a simple color-blocking mani using the Relay for Life colors of red, blue, and purple.  And yes, my virtual bandage is back!  What can I say?  I work with my hands a LOT.

I started with my base of SH Double Duty.  Then, I painted a stripe down one edge of my nails with Wet 'n' Wild's 414, which just happens to be my all time favorite red.  Then, I painted the rest of each nail with Essie's Mesmerize.  Finally, I added a little section of purple using Orchid's Good Girl Gone Bad.  Everything was just free-handed. I topped my nails with a coat of SV to finish.

Are any of you participating in the Relay this year?  Thanks for looking, and hopefully supporting.  Have a great weekend, everyone!  And don't forget to enter my giveaway!  It ends next week!


  1. I really like this color blocking mani! The colors go so well together :)

  2. ooh this looks great! I've got to give this a go :)

  3. LOL, that virtual bandage is adorable. Clever way to cover up nicks and cuts. I wish I could have one in real life -- I don't work with my hands a lot (aside from on computers), but I *am* a klutz!

    Also yay at the Relay for Life love!

    1. Thanks! I didn't want to have to stop posting every time I get a little nick, but also didn't want to photoshop it. Just kind of seems like cheating to me...you guys should get to see "the real thing", good or bad. :o)
