I've been lucky and have not had any bullying result from my blog, aside a stray Pinterest comment. However, I grew up being bullied. It still happens. So raising awareness about bullying and showing support is something I care greatly about.
So today, in support of eradicating bullying, I have a purple manicure to share.
For my manicure, I chose Sally Hansen Lustrous and Essence It's Purplicious. I used one coat of the former then two coats of the glitter.
"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."
