Late No H8!

I am late with this but a BUNCH of bloggers were sporting purple nails on their blogs yesterday to take a stand against bullying.  Go HERE for more info. It's unfortunate but we here about bullying all the time.  It happens in real life but it seems to happen a bunch in the cyber world as well.  When people are sitting behind a computer screen, it must make them feel big and bad like they can say anything.  I don't know how someone could purposefully make someone feel down but it happens all the time!

So even though I'm a day late, I still felt compelled to join in as I feel this is something that needs to stop.  There is no reason for it.  We've all heard the line...if you have nothing nice to say, then don't say anything at all!  There is no reason to go out of one's way to make a person feel bad.  Shall we get onto the mani?

I first started with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Plum Luck.  Then I added Wet n Wild Color Icon in Back Alley Deals.  Unfortunately this was LE but it is a gorgeous one.  I forget to wear these guys! 

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.


  1. Love this. I sure wish i would have picked up that Wet N Wild polish. I got the blue one and the silver one... so pretty!

    1. Thank you! I have them all and tend to neglect them. They are gorgeous! :)
