As I run a fashion page on Facebook and write this blog, I thought I would do something that would be a talking point to create awareness for lymphoedema but that was also stylish! I decided to get my nails painted. I went for green (ribbon colour for lymphoedema in the UK). It’s not a colour I would usually go for, also they are vibrant and glitzy which means they draw attention. Hopefully they will serve as a conversation starter ready for an education.
Think about what you can do to draw awareness to the condition.
Lots of love
