Twinsie Tuesday: Cervical Cancer Awareness Month

As the month of January brings cervical cancer into focus, it’s time to increase public understanding of the disease, including its prevalence, approaches to screening and prevention, treatment options, and resources that offer updated cervical cancer information throughout the year.

Each year in the United States, more than 11,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and approximately 4,000 die of the disease. While certain types of the human papillomavirus (HPV) are linked to cervical cancer, vaccines such as Gardasil® and Cervarix™ are designed to prevent infection with high-risk types of HPV and have the potential to greatly reduce the occurrence of cervical cancer.

In order to bring more awareness to this devastating disease affecting women, my Twinsies and I will be posting manicures today in Teal and White, the colors designated for the disease awareness.

For my manicure, I used Nicole by OPI Khloe Had a Little Lam-Lam (thanks, Chelsea!) and Shimmer Polish Cassandra for a little sponging glitter.  


The NOPI applied ridiculously well and covered evenly in two glossy coats.  For my second published attempt at sponging, I have to say I surprised myself: I actually like this!  Woo hoo me.
