Polish Days - MANicure

It's Polish Days time again and Novembers theme is MAN-icure.
I'm sure you are all aware by now about Movember. But just in case you are not, each November men all over the UK sport a moustache for the duration of the month to raise funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
Obviously this is a bit tricky for us ladies but we can show our support in other ways.
Such as on our nails!
For this months theme we were given the choice to go with the Movember moustache or a tribute to an important man in our lives, I had a choice of five men, and I chose them all!






The thumb is a computer circuit board to represent my Dad who works with computers, don't ask me what he does because I have no idea! I'm just going to call it magic!

The index finger is and Xbox symbol to represent MrGT. Yep, I am an Xbox widow.

The middle finger is lots of little toy cars to represent my four year old son, he is, as most four year old boys are, completely car mad.

The ring finger is an anchor to represent my father in law who is ex-navy.

And lastly the pinky is tartan to represent MrGTs Grandad who is Scottish and proud!

I used lots of polishes for this so I will try my best to list them all for you.
Thumb - Base No7 Totally Teal. Lines Barry M Mint Green. Dots Barry M Black.
Index - Base Nails Inc Charlotte Street. The X is a mix of Barry M Yellow, Mint Green and Spring Green. The Highlight is a mix of Barry M Matt White and Nails Inc Charlotte Street.
Middle - Base Barry M Matt White, Cars Barry M Bright Red, Spring Green, Yellow, Cobalt Blue. Wheels Barry M Black and Silver Foil.
Ring - Base Barry M Cobalt Blue. Anchor mix of Barry M Silver Foil and Black.
Pinky - Base Barry M Bright Red. Stripes Barry M Spring Green, Yellow and Matt White.

This was done in a bit of a mad rush so I could get the photos taken before we lost the natural light, so it'd not as neat as I would like but I'm still incredibly pleased with it and very proud to be wearing it!
