Are Your Toes Ready?!

September is coming! Just two more days…and you may know by now what that means in the polish world! It’s time to raise awareness about ovarian cancer by sporting our Teal Toes!

I’ve been writing about Teal Toes on BeautyJudy since 2009, and I am as fired up about the cause as I was when I first discovered it! It’s a unique nonprofit model!

This year, in pondering how I would cover Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, I decided that I would get INTERACTIVE!

Share your Teal Toes!

Yes, I know that some of you are cringing and going “oh no….not FOOT PHOTOS!”

But let’s get in the spirit…together, we can offer great teal pedi ideas for folks looking to give themselves Teal Toes!!

Each week, depending on submissions, I’m going to do a Teal Toes roundup with YOUR Teal Toes!

Send photos of YOUR Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month pedis to beautyjudyblog@gmail.com!*

Include the following information with your photo:

  • First name
  • Your URL or link to your Instagram or Twitter etc. that can be linked to with your photo.
  • Name and brand of the polish you used for your Teal Toes.
  • Tell me – is there a special reason you’re sporting Teal Toes, or are you just happy to help raise awareness? I will share this with your photo.

*All photos are subject to editorial approval. They must be crisp, clear and sharp! It doesn’t matter if your toes sport a color I’m about to swatch below – let’s just celebrate teal!

If you are a fellow blogger, watermarking is acceptable – it’s your creative property, after all! ALL photos will be credited to you – either with a link to your site or with your first name and link to the social media site of your choice.

Let’s celebrate Teal Toes, and raise awareness of the cancer that is dubbed the silent killer – because there ain’t nothing silent about teal, right?! (Visit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund for more information on this disease!)

Ok. To kick things off, I have some swatches of teals…First up, I want to share two special swatches. Carey, founder of Teal Toes, has two favorite teals:

Diamond Cosmetics Don’t Teal My Heart (but see below for real name of polish!):

Actually swatched here is Priti Tulip Tree, which is a dead-on dupe for Don’t Teal My Heart. I gave my Don’t Teal My Heart away to a friend, and I haven’t had a chance to order a new one!

Also on Carey’s favorites list is Zoya Charla, shown here with dupes, Orly Haley’s Comet, OPI Catch Me In Your Net:

Here are some of MY teal favs right now!

Baboo Tampa Teal (from No Miss):

Sation Miss McTeal:

Cult Nails Awakening:

Zoya Cynthia:

And Sephora by OPI Teal We Meet Again:

One more. I’m wearing Wet n’ Wild Fergie polish in Miami Spirit on my toes, it’s a more green teal:

I hope you’ll share your Teal Toes with BeautyJudy followers!
