Eradicate H8 in the Nail Polish Blogger Community

Hi all!

A bit of a serious mani today and a cause that's close to my heart, as I myself have suffered at the hands of bullies but I'm proud to say I came out the other side a stronger person for it.

Bullying is not funny. It is not cool. It is not right. And more importantly, it is not okay.


Most of us are, thankfully, residents of countries that support tolerance and many of our families have settled
in these places simply for that reason. Generations later, it is our responsibility to perpetuate that message of 
tolerance across our new social platforms, including the internet.
As members of the nail polish blogging community, we all share a love of beauty, color, and lacquer. Other 
than that, we are remarkably different: from our race to our religion to our hair color...even to our polish
application techniques. To marginalize anyone because of those differences is completely unacceptable and 
today I take a stand against that. I refuse to allow other people's view of "normal" dictate how I behave, 
believe, and blog. 

In solidarity with a multitude of bloggers linked below, my purple manicure represents my proud commitment
to the No H8 movement. Today, November 8, I dedicate my post to ending bullying of any kind and to 
encouraging diversity and imperfection among our colorful community.




My mani is a shout out to when times were simpler when our lives revolved round chasing butterflies, picking flowers and making daisy chains.











I hope the day comes that we no longer have to deal with bullies but in the mean time there is support out there for you, so please reach out if you need it or help those you think are suffering.

♥ xo
