Teal for Ovarian Cancer Awareness | Twinsie Tuesday

» This post contains affiliate links «

September is ovarian cancer awareness month and the Twinsies and I have created teal manicures to spread awareness.  For this mani I started with a base of OPI's My Boyfriend Scales Walls and sponged on Pure Ice's Calypso.

So why is teal the color to spread awareness for ovarian cancer?  According to whyteal.org, the acronym "teal" stands for Take Early Action and Live.  Let's do that! 

Please visit the lovely Twinsie Tuesday ladies to check out their teal manicures:
