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.
I don't have a purple mani to post right now, but wanted to get this post out on the 8th. I do have a purple mani planned to do tonight, so I will try to get it posted at least first thing tomorrow.
I have a purple mani looking in my previous posts which I am deliberately linking into this. The post was an ombre mani and the only picture I managed to get before damaging it was this picture which has no clean up, so it's kind of appropriate!
The polishes used were ParlezVous OPI, DS Original, Purple with a Purpose, W7 Purple Paradise and OPI Ink.
The original pictures can be found here in my I'm having a bad week post.
