november 8 for no h8

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.


In honor of the No H8 Movement, I am wearing purple to show my support. As a future teacher, this cause is close to my heart. I want to be an advocate for all children, especially children who are feeling down on themselves. Bullying is never acceptable.




Shown is two coats of Sephora by OPI Just A Little Dangerous topped with one coat of Cult Nails Seduction.

Do what you can to show your support, even if it's as simple as painting your nails. We can stand together against bullying!

    1. You could always have them ship to a friend of yours in the states and have them ship to you! I know they ship to the UK (pretty sure anyway) but not sure on pricing!
