Colour for a Cause - Chemmart Pharmacy and Ovarian Cancer Australia

February is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month, and in a bid to help raise awareness of ovarian cancer, Chemmart Pharmacies and Ovarian Cancer Australia (OCA) are inviting Australians to paint their nails teal - the international colour of ovarian cancer.

To help Aussies show their support, Chemmart Pharmacies across Australia will be stocking a limited edition Designer Brands teal nail polish pack called 'Colour for a Cause'. The pack comes with two full sized polishes, a white and a teal and will retail for $6.99, with 100% of the proceeds going to OCA.

Selected Chemmart Pharmacies will also off in-store manis, were you can get your nails done for a gold coin donation, which will also go to the OCA.

First up, I have swatches of the two colours and then I have a nail art look I created with the set in support of Ovarian Cancer awareness.

Teal - a rich teal creme polish.  Great formula and opaque in two coats.

White - a nice coverage white creme.  Application was good and it was opaque in two thick coats.

Here is the nail art look I created.  On my index and pinky fingers I did a gradient using both colours.  On my ring finger I painted it teal and stamped in white using Messy Mansion plate MM29, on my thumb I reversed it and painted my nail white and stamped with the teal polish.  

On my middle finger I did some freehand nail art and created the flower logo of Ovarian Cancer Australia, as it appears on the box.  I create the different shades of teal by mixing a little bit of white with it for two shades.

Teal Ribbon Day is Wednesday 26 February, so I'll be wearing another look with these polishes on that day. 

Colour for a Cause teal nail polish packs will be available in Chemmart Pharmacies from February 6, while stocks last.

Polishes provided for consideration.

  6. I just wanted to let you know how much this mani means to me. As an ovarian cancer survivor, it touches me a little closer to home. Also, my cousin passed away just before Christmas from it. I want to urge women to listen to their bodies...if something feels even a little off get it checked. 
    PS. Since this is my first official comment I wanted you to know I love your blog. It's one of my two daily musts.

    1. Thank you for your comment, and I couldn't agree more with what you have said.

  7. I got my set today Kitties, thank you very much for doing this post or I would never have known about this needy cause xoxo
