Late night nail art today for the month of Movember! Cutie mustaches and lots of pale blue for men's health issues. I find this slightly amusing because when I think of male health issues the first thing that comes to mind is prostatic cancer which has absolutely nothing to do with mustaches. Weird. Anyway I'm really pleased with how this nail art ended up coming out. I don't really have a particular men's health issue to get behind, but I do think all the mustaches that float around this time of year are adorable :)
I'm gonna side chat here for a minute. For whatever reason whenever I transfer my pictures to instagram the color of my photos gets ALL kinda messed up. If any one knows how to prevent this please let me know. It's driving me insane. Anyway I'm really happy I got to use this Zoya Blu again. It's such a pale blue its almost white. I don't have the words to describe the soft floating through the cloud feeling this color gives me. It was way to perfect for this mani plus I love the way this looked matiffied.
This is literally all MoYou London Hipster happening all the time. I love this plate mainly for the mustaches and the abstract pattern you are seeing on my accent nails.

So pleased with these accents. I'm working on a new technique and this is a integral part of the process. I really love how colors translate with this method, but I don't feel I'm quite accomplished enough to share a tutorial for it just yet :/ Hopefully soon!
Yup it's Movember and my nails look really cute! I guess I should do my due diligence here as a health care professional and say for men there has been quite an advance in the way we monitor and screen for prostatic cancer. For one thing its not really recommended any longer to have PSA's done or random core biopsies for elevation in PSA levels. Yearly health exams which screen for irregularities is really all that's necessary. Also these days it's likely a chronic disease like congestive heart failure is more likely to kill you than prostatic cancer. As a male what's more risky is smoking and heart disease and the best thing you can do for your health, man or woman, is to quit smoking if you do smoke. In roughly 10 years after quitting your lungs will be back to the same level of health as your nonsmoking counterparts. Though your cancer risk is not. If you want to learn more about prostate screening here is a link to the guidelines put out by AAFP and the USPSTF http://www.aafp.org/afp/2013/0215/od1.html. Well with that little piece of of info and advice I'm going to leave it here. Thanks for reading and look forward to maybe a few more mustachios this month maybe...
