PCOS is something that most women don't know they have, and if they do, they don't like to talk about it. It's a very personal and emotional syndrome to have. It can make you feel like less of a woman. Losing your hair, increase in facial hair, depression and fatigue, weight gain, and unable to get pregnant. These are just a few of the symptoms you can have if you have PCOS. It is often not talked about for fear of being humiliated, ridiculed, or laughed at. Or not heard.
Nory is a beautiful woman who I recently found out has PCOS. This is a lifelong struggle, and I want to stand up and hug her for getting us to come together and recognize this horrible syndrome. Many woman likely have this and have no idea, and it has serious complications.
In honor of September being PCOS Awareness Month, a group of us got together to show support (and nails!) by doing teal and white manicures, which are the colors of PCOS support.
I used a base teal color I mixed myself (Barielle Surf's Up, Barielle Lily of the Valley, Sally Hansen Polar Bare) and the nail art is in acrylic paint.
