Battle Pink aka Nail Art for Rethink Breast Cancer

Rethink Breast Cancer asked me to participate in Battle Pink this October.

What happens when you pit a radio host against a style blogger, or stage a battle with a beauty editor vs. a newspaper columnist? Rethink Breast Cancer presents BATTLE PINK! The charity has gathered writers, on-­‐air talent, stylists and bloggers to compete in a FIRST EVER creative battle royale during the month of October to raise awareness and funds for Rethink Breast Cancer.

On October 1st, 2012, Rethink will post images taken by the 24 contest participants showcasing 12 PINK products, and the public will be asked to vote for their favorite photos. Penguin Books Canada has pledged to match each vote cast with $1! Some of the face-­‐offs include: Taylor Kaye (KISS 92.5) vs. Anita Clarke (, Sarah Kelsey (Huffington Post Canada) vs. Tiyana Grulovic (The Globe and Mail), Afiya Francisco ( vs. Sharon and Tara of the Backseat Stylers (, and Jen McNeely ( vs. Chenessa Lam (, amongst others.

My Pink Product was the Root watch pictured. I wasn’t really sure how I was going to style this watch and in the last hour I decided that nail art would be the way to go. I took the Rethink and watch colours as inspiration and went to town. I even did nail art pink ribbons. It took me about a hour to complete my nail art journey. Everything turned out good except for the ring fingers. I was trying to do a fishtail braid mani but I messed it up a bit.

Battle Pink Voting is open right now and it’s free. Vote for me, vote for others, it doesn’t matter because each vote is $1 donated to Rethink courtesy of Penguin Books Canada. Keep voting until October 14, 2012.
