International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month

This is a cause very close to my heart. While I have seen some beautiful breast cancer manicures this month I haven't yet seen one for International Pregnancy and Infant Loss  Awareness month. So I got out my pink and blue polishes and came up with this in honour of our beautiful daughter Grace.

There are some scars that can’t be seen by the eye

Some wounds that will never heal

Some hurts that time will never mend

And broken hearts with pieces missing that will never be whole again.

October 15th is International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness day. 

Each year in Australia approximately 58,000 couples 
experience reproductive loss: About 55,000 experience early pregnancy loss, 
1,750 babies are stillborn
and about 900 babies die in the first twenty-eight days after birth (source SANDS Australia)

I used Opi's breast cancer support polish - I Think in Pink on all fingers but the ring
On the ring I used Opi - Mod about you
The blue details are China Glaze flyin High.

It was fun but also hard as I wanted it to be just right. The hearts are done using a dotting tool and 
I finally had success with stripping tape to do the stripes. I free-handed the ribbon, certainly not great but for 
my first time trying to free hand a design I was happy enough with it.
