Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Nails

While October is more known for being Breast Cancer Awareness month, it is also Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month. I have a very lovely, strong friend who unfortunately lost her daughter at beginning of 2011. As a way to honor not only my friend and also her daughter, I wanted to dedicate my first post in October to them and to help bring more awareness to pregnancy and infant loss.
I based my design off the logo from the Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope blog. The blog is dedicated to helping women and families share their stories about pregnancy and infant loss while also providing resources and advice.
The base color used is Weird Indeed Pivot! (post here), the hearts are Sinful Colors Slate (post here) and for the feet design I used Wet n Wild French White. For the designs themselves, I used the dotting tool in the nail art brush kit from Born Pretty (post here).
While I know my nail art skills are not as good as others, I tried in hopes to only bring a smile to my friend's face and bring awareness to this cause. My friend has a blog that shares her very touching story and I will edit this post if she is comfortable with me sharing it. Edit to add: Maggie has she is comfortable with me sharing her blog :) You can find her beautiful and very touching story here.

There are many wonderful sites dedicated to Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness I have come across; Faces of Loss, Faces of HopeGrieve Out Loud and The Compassionate Friends. If there anymore anyone would like me to add I will be happy to do so. I urge everyone to do whatever you can to bring awareness to this cause wether it be donating or talking to others about it, every small act helps.
