DIY French Pedicure as a Base for Pink Ribbon Nail Art Designs
The first step is to do a French pedicure as a base for your pink ribbon nail art designs. If you know how to do your own French pedicure, do so and then skip down to the steps for adding pink ribbon nail art designs to your nails. If you are unfamiliar with French pedicures, see below:

1.    Paint all of your toenails with a very pale pink or nude nail polish.

2.    Allow them to dry and paint a second coat using the same base color.

3.    Determine if a third coat is necessary. Apply and let dry if needed.

4.    Once your nails are dry, paint just the tip of each nail white. You can use a white nail art pen for precision or if a nail art pen is not available, simply use the nail polish brush, a tiny paintbrush, or even a toothpick.

Tip: If you find that you have a hard time making a straight line across your nails, you can give yourself a guide using a piece of paper taped around your toe or some kind of label, tape, or sticker that won’t peel up your base coat. Some nail kits include guides you can apply for flawless French manicures and pedicures.

5.    Allow your nails to dry completely before moving onto the next steps.

  1. Did this for red ribbon week at my school, and did a red french tip on all of the nails except for big toe, for that one i did a white one.

  2. Thanks everyone! Great comments. 🙂 Just an update – The winner of the Brillo contest will be selected later this week or early next – the contest goes until 10-28 so there is still a little time left for people to enter. 🙂

  3. I know it is kind of silly,but I was wondering if the winners were picked for the Brillo contest? I admit I keep checking.

  4. My mom had breast cancer and fought it so bravely and courageously. I support all companies whose products help us to fight breast cancer. Thank you so much for this article on how to give yourself a Pink Ribbon awareness pedicure. I am giving myself one as well as my daughters. I am going to pass it on to my co-workers. Thank you so much for the article!

  5. I love your pink Brillo pads. It is a wonderful way to remind people to support Breast Cancer awareness not only in October but every month. My Grandmother had breast cancer twice and eventually lost her battle. Maybe one day someone else will not have to lose their Grandmother, mother, sister or daughter to this terrible disease. Thank you Brillo for your help in keeping the fight going.

  6. When I see these toes, I can’t help but remember my very favorite, very eccentric Aunt Mary who died of breast cancer when I was a teenager. This is exactly the kind of thing she would have loved! Gone too soon, Mary. 🙂

  7. I love it! What a cool way to show your support! My mom died of Breast Cancer when she was just 49 years old and I was 19 years old. I am now 50 myself and I support many breast cancer related causes. Thanks for the great idea!
