Pink Zebra Nail Art for NET Cancer Awareness Day

Hey y'all!

Long time, no faff, eh?  As I stated in my last post back in June, things have been pretty busy for me trying to start up my own nail technician business.  I can report that things are moving along, perhaps a little slower than I'd like, but forward motion is progress nonetheless.  I've been throwing my energies into advertisement and getting my name out there, as well as training on new techniques and treatments to add to my services list.  But, enough about me, because I haven't come out of my cave just to give you an update on what's going on inside it.  Today, I wanted to share with you a nail art look I created in response to a call for action from one of my blogger buddies and all-around neat chick, Emma from Em's Little Corner.  You see, last December, Emma's husband was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer, of which she'd never heard, called Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET).  Because the symptoms of NET are similar to other conditions (and can therefore be misdiagnosed easily), the International Neuroendocrine Cancer Alliance has chosen the zebra ribbon to represent the cause - because when you hear hooves, you assume horses, but what if a zebra comes along?  The INCA wants to spread awareness among medical professionals and the general public to think zebra when it comes to screening illnesses.

To that end, a few of us nail blogger types are participating in a pink zebra mani linkup to help spread awareness of this overlooked condition today, which is NET Cancer Awareness Day.
