Twinsie Tuesday: Cervical Health Awareness Month (Teal & White)

Hi friends! Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is a manicure in honor of Cervical Health Awareness Month. The colors representing this month are teal & white.

First here is some info about the cause:

As the month of January brings cervical cancer into focus, it’s time to increase public understanding of the disease, including its prevalence, approaches to screening and prevention, treatment options, and resources that offer updated cervical cancer information throughout the year.
Each year in the United States, more than 11,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and approximately 4,000 die of the disease. While certain types of the human papillomavirus (HPV) are linked to cervical cancer, vaccines such as Gardasil® and Cervarix™ are designed to prevent infection with high-risk types of HPV and have the potential to greatly reduce the occurrence of cervical cancer.
For more information on cervical cancer, its treatment, and support, please visit Cancer Connect by clicking here.

 For my manicure, I used Julep Kate (pearly white) as my base with LA Glitter Addict Nostalgic (teal glitter) on top; I then did my accent nail with OPI Fly (teal creme-jelly) with Nubar White Polka Dot (satin white glitter).

Be sure to see what the other Twinsies did for their Cervical Health Awareness manicures!
