WnW-Teal of Fortune & Chg-Techno Teal For Teal Toes!

Hey guys! Today's post
(Should have been posted yesterday eek >.<)
Is about Teal Toes & Ovarian Cancer awareness!

Here is Information from the Teal Toes website, 

Welcome to Teal Toes!
Our mission is to raise awareness of ovarian cancer.
How?  By painting your toenails teal, the ovarian cancer color.  By getting your friends to paint their toenails teal too, and then by talking with people when they ask about it, to make sure that they know the signs of this whispering killer.
Any time of year is good for teal toes, but we especially recommend September, the ovarian cancer awareness month!

Why Teal Toes?
  • Ribbons aren't enough
  • It's easy!
  • It makes your toes look pretty
  • Teal, the ovarian cancer awareness color, is striking enough to make people ask about it
Why toes and not fingers?
  • If you want to do your fingers, by all means, please do!
  • Some places of employment have rules for fingernail polish, but toes can be covered if necessary.
  • Toenail polish can last longer
Why September?
  • September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month
  • September, the end of summer in most parts of the USA, is the perfect time for one last pedicure
Why raise awareness?
  • Too many women with ovarian cancer do not get diagnosed until their cancer has spread. Their survival rate is 45%.
  • The survival rate improves greatly - to 93 percent - if the cancer is diagnosed at an early stage before it has spread. Only 19 percent of ovarian cancer cases are diagnosed at this local stage.
  • Approximately 75 percent of ovarian cancer cases are diagnosed at an advanced stage after the cancer has spread beyond the ovary.
This information is from the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.

For My manicure I used Wet n Wild-Teal of Fortune.
There is some VNL in the pictures BUT not in person at all, I used 2 coats and honestly could have left it at two if I weren't posting pics!

& For my Pedi I used China Glaze-Techno Teal
 Okay don't hate on my feet too bad, I promise they look better in person LOL The awkward shininess is from lotion, they were super dry looking in the first pic, but yeah Not the best looking feet D: I don't take as good of care of them as I should like my hands!

Here are some other bloggers who posted about Teal toes!


  1. Yay! I have yet to use Techno Teal on it's own... I still need to do that! It's great for stamping though!

  2. Love the colors you choose! You got cute feet, Stop hating on them =)

  3. Thanks so much for your support in Teal Toes. Don't let it stop here - keep reminding folks. We have to get this grassroots effort going big time. I lost my mom to Ov CA - I had to have a total hysterectomy because the type she had was so strongly linked genetically. It's a silent killer and does not have to be. WE can change this - we need to change this!!!


I promise that I read and appreciate each and every comment!
