“In 2002, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, the same disease that took my mother’s life. Fortunately, I was treated and made a full recovery, but I vowed to never let recovery be the end of my battle,” explains Ouidad, the founder of the eponymous ‘curl experts’ haircare line. Inspired by her own story and the harrowing loss of her mother to the deplorable disease of breast cancer, Ouidad ties a year-round fundraising program to Ouidad.com and Flagship salon sales of its KRLY Kids product collection which includes: No Time For Tears Shampoo, No More Knots Conditioner, and Pump & Go Spray Gel; $15 each. Ouidad donates $1 from each KRLY Kids purchase to BCRF.

Everyone around the world comes together this month to support Breast Cancer Awareness. Whether it’s your mom, sister, aunt, or grandma we all know someone personally or have heard of someone affected by this terrible disease, and how important it is to support these women through their fight, and for a cure. And in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Lauren B. felt it was appropriate to create a nail art that is just as strong and fabulous as every woman battling breast cancer today. Using three Lauren B. pink shades, City of Angels, Clueless in 90210, #ImSoLA, we created a pink bow and layered it with an array of different colors with accent polka dots inside. This is the perfect manicure to rock for the month of October, to show your love and support!
Step 1: Apply one coat our Nail Perfecter as the perfect base coat. Let dry for 1-2 min.
Step 2: Apply two coats of light pink, Lauren B. City of Angels. Let dry for 2-3 min.
Step 3: On the accent nail using a very thin pointed brush, paint on the breast cancer ribbon using Lauren B. #ImSoLA nail polish.
Step 4: Using a small dotting tool or toothpick, apply dots to the ribbon with Lauren B. Clueless In 90210 and Lauren B. City of Angels. Let dry for 1 min.
Step 5: Apply Lauren B. Gel-like Top Coat for a perfect long-lasting manicure! Let dry for 3-4 min.
Optional: For some extra flare, add some silver studs using a small dab of topcoat to the nail and then apply the studs. Show your support with nails that express the strength that women with breast cancer show everyday!
