For my BCA, I wanted to do something sweet and simple and clean-looking. So I settled on a pink-on-pink gradient mani, using two polishes. The base is OPI Princesses Rule!, which is a silvery pink shimmer with a crystal-like look. The second polish is Etude House BPK001 Magic Kiss, which is a sheer pink base with pink and gold glitter.

I first applied three coats of OPI Princesses Rule!, and yes I needed three coats because Princesses Rule! is pretty darn sheer although it's so pretty once it's on. After that, I used Etude House BPK001 Magic Kiss. Normally I would have just dabbed it on with the nail polish brush, but this time I decided to achieve the gradient effect by using the sponging technique (I use a small piece of kitchen sponge to dab some polish on the edge of the nail) for a smoother gradient effect. And that's the manicure you see!

So that's my BCA awareness manicure. And remember, if you're in the at-risk age group, do get a mammogram once every 2 years. And with that, let me stop nagging you and end off with one last photo of my nails:
