Hi everyone! I'm so happy to be doing a purple mani for such a great reason!
I started off with two coats of Ozotic 513, a gorgeous purple holographic, and two coats of Lime Crime Lavendairy, a light purple creme, on my ring fingers. I followed with one coat of SV.
I have been saving 513 for something special, and I could think of no better polish for today's purpose.
I then used a pair of decorative edging scissors to cut strips of tape in half, and applied both pieces to each nail, leaving a space in between.
I then applied one coat of the coordinating color, and removed the tape immediately. I finished with one coat of SV.
I am so happy with the final result, especially out in the sun. It's simple, but the linear effect is just dazzling.
I am so pleased to se so many amazing bloggers taking a stand for this, and I hope you all will as well!
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.
