Paint Up and Polish for Life.

Are you a woman struggling with a cancer diagnosis who feels like she can use a new paint of coat on life? Why not try nail polish and enjoy having some cute cuticles.

A simple act like painting her nails can refocus a woman on her femininity and innate beauty.

Yet maintaining ties with current trends in fashion and beauty can serve as a wonderful way for a woman not to lose herself as she faces the biggest battle of her life.
If the idea of a full makeover is overwhelming, there are small and simple ways for a woman to maintain a sense of style.
The reason why a manicure is such a wonderful idea is because it an easy and time efficient way to pay a little attention to your own needs. A manicure may be the absolute last thing a woman has on her mind while battling cancer, yet it may be just the thing she needs to renew her sense.

All it takes is a simple drug store bottle of nail polish and her husband, friend, or children to elegantly apply the nail polish as she sits back relaxes. The soothing human touch paired with adding bright, beautiful colors can be a truly transforming and healing experience.
After endless appointments with doctors and treatments following the cancer prognosis, hands that provide a beautiful touch can be a refreshing change.

No matter how much she faces, painted nails tell the world that she has not lost count of her value as a woman.
Being pampered is a great way for a woman to ease back and allow herself to be treated as a princess, even as she struggles with one of the many cancers woman are faced with including mesothelioma from asbestos exposure.
If a trip to the salon for a manicure simply isn’t in the budget, then a woman can still enjoy the same blissful pampering at home.
When facing a daunting diagnosis and the subsequent treatment options, it is easy for a woman to feel overwhelmed.
As inconsequential as it may seem, a manicure can really brighten up your perspective. Let’s face it, there is nothing fun about cancer. Yet, in the midst of your darkest emotions, brightness can be found in the form of gorgeous, silky nails.

One of the first things a woman allows to fall to the wayside is her personal upkeep and beauty.
