NOTD: Paint Your Pinkie Pink!

In the spirit of Breast Cancer Action Month which kicks off today, I thought I'd join in on Breast Cancer Campaign's Paint Your Pinkie Pink campaign, and do a NOTD.. or rather, a NOTM!


My first pink pinkie look is quite standard and slightly understated, with an overall theme of pink but with two different shades. This makes it slightly more work-appropriate I think, but still accentuating the pink pinkie (very different from the ring finger accent I'm used to!)

The shades I used are OPI Kiss on the Chic for the baby pink, and OPI Elephantastic Pink for the pinkie. These two are great shades, and the latter was a summer favourite of mine last year.

Here are other pinks from my collection that may be making an appearance over the course of the month..


(Click on shade names to see swatches :))
Mavala Vegas Pink - my favourite hot pink, which is a few shades deeper than your typical hot pink, and an absolute showstopper!

OPI Teenage Dream - a stunner since its release, this is a sheer pink with rainbow and silver glitter. See my favourite use of this colour here.

OPI Kiss on the Chic - a slightly blue-toned baby pink, this is the shade you see above!

OPI Elephantastic Pink - slightly warmer than Mavala Vegas Pink and slightly lighter, this is your standard, but not neon, hot pink.

Rimmel Rose Libertine - for those looking for something more salmon-ey and less 'hot', this is a fantastic and unique shade that is perfect for more classier or toned-down approaches!

As I stated, Paint Your Pinkie Pink is a campaign run by the charity Breast Cancer Campaign. They've also teamed with nail giants Nails Inc., to bring an exclusive breast cancer awareness nail polish. If I didn't have Teenage Dream, I think this would be an instantaneous purchase! Breast Cancer Campaign's work is absolutely fantastic, and awareness campaigns like this is so crucial and effective for health causes like theirs! I enourage you to give their site a gander! :)

  1. This is such a cute idea. I don't actually own any pink nail polish but am definitely going to pick up a bottle to use this month to show my support. x
