Movember Nail Art

As we are now more than half way through Movember I thought it about time I show my support as the wife of a Mo Bro to all those men out there who are busily styling moustaches and raising money for a fantastic cause.  The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer. For more information please visit Movember UK.
Mr LiPP is sporting a rather impressive moustache and has raised a fantastic £300 so far! Whilst facial hair is not my cup of tea, I do support my husbands decision to be involved in this charitable month and I am proud of him for raising so much money.

For this manicure I started with three thin coats of NYC Lavendar Cupcake. A really pretty lilac that I had forgotten how much I liked until I used it tonight.

Using my black nail art pen I free handed the moustaches onto my ring finger and thumb. Considering free hand is not my thing I am pleased with how they turned out - Cute!!

Then using Barry M Lilac Foil I added these wood effect stripes using BM 309 to just my index and middle fingers... still loving the Skittlette mani :-)

Purple heart rhinestones were the perfect addition to these two nails and it finished them off nicely

Finally for my little finger I decided to keep it simple and add a layer of Barry M Lavender Hex. It contains lots of very reflective lilac square glitters not to mention the millions of lilac micro glitters that are set into the clear base. Super pretty!

Congratulations to all you money raising men out there - great job for a truly worthy cause.
