I decided to tackle one of my first PinspiratioNAIL pins, a look I’ve been wanting to try for a while now, with these punchy new shades.

By on February 7, 2014
in Essie, Maybelline, Red with 25 Comments

This fact has been shared in every mention of American Heart Month and it bears repeating, Heart Disease is the #1 killer of women.

That’s why, today, I painted my nails red in support of Go Red For Women’s 10th annual Wear Red Day. As part of the #GoRedChallenge, I’m wearing Essie Lacquered Up with an accent nail of Essie Blanc and Maybelline Color Show Wild At Heart (apropos, no?) from the Street Art collection.

The pin I’m holding is from the Hearth Truth Red Dress NYFW show a few years back. The annual event took place last night at Lincoln Center. You can get this year’s version from Shop.Heart.Org.

In addition to wearing red today, let’s all make a promise to become better educated about heart disease and get a blood pressure check. It’s one simple step towards a heart healthier you. Learn more at GoRedForWomen.org.
