PCOS Awareness Mani for Awareness Month!

   Today's post is a special one, I am showing my support for PCOS, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.  PCOS is when there is a hormone imbalance in a woman that interferes with ovulation.  Unfortunately there is no cure for PCOS, and many times a patient can be misdiagnosed.  Below are only a few symptoms of PCOS...

A change or irregularity in your menstral cycle
Development of male-like characteristics
Changes in your skin
Increase in weight
Problems breathing while asleep

This month is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome awareness. Let's all show our support by sporting your teal manicures.  

I put this on both of my thumbs.

   I used Everybody Loves Redmond as the base polish. To show that I love to support woman that have this syndrome. I used Sinful Colors, 950, Savage as my teal stamping polish. I used Ebony hates Chris as the black stamping polish. I used several different stamping plates to create this manicure: BM 321, BM09, Mash 38 and Cheeky C. The accent pinkie is used China Glaze, 883, Mrs. Claus.
