Have you donned your pink skirt-suit? Are you flaunting a blushing boot?
No? If all that seems a bit much for the workplace, or you feel a little like candyfloss with limbs, here’s how you can support the #wearitpink cause with a tad more subtlety (and originality)…
Who likes the Disney background? ;)
Wear a pop of pink charity on your nails this October with this nail colour from Nail Girls! Nail Girls are the natural, non toxic, chemical free, nail care brand. Free from any harmful chemicals like toluene, formaldehyde, DBP (phthalates) and camphor, they are not tested on animals, are vegan friendly and the packaging is recyclable.
I wasn’t expecting much from this nail polish as I had not heard of the brand before, and it didn’t look particularly high end. Having said that, this is one of the best formulas I have ever tried. The colour is opaque in one coat, yes, one coat (although in the picture I am wearing more than one)! Making the colour and the bottle itself really long-lasting. I’m wearing mine with a coat of white nail polish underneath to brighten the colour but honestly I don’t think it needs it. I love the colour, I love the formula, I even love the bottle shape.
I just had a little peek at their website and I am now lusting over so many of their colours and treatments, I might have to make a wishlist. The packaging in full sized products looks much more professional but they are heavily priced, £13.50 for a 15ml bottle! There are also 5ml bottles for £5 but not every colour comes in baby size. The formula is not superior, in my view, to the Barry M nail paints which come in at half the price; but Nail Girls boast unique and beautiful colours that are far more sophisticated than the drugstore staple. I am thoroughly impressed by this brand and will have my eye permanently on them – I would buy something now but I have banned myself from any further nail polish purchases (predominantly unsuccessfully to be honest).
Block coloured nails not enough for you? Spice it up by adding a top coat of this Barry M nail paint in 316 Kingsland Road for a textured finish. You could also attempt to paint on the breast cancer ribbon, I attempted it myself but I really fail at nail art so I had to rub it off.
Thank you so much for reading :)

P.S. You may have noticed sashahope.com has gone pink! This was originally in recognition of awareness month, but I like it so much I might just keep it. What do you think?
