Eradicate H8!

Image from SoFlaJo Eradicate H8 Blogpost
 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.
 - For this manicure I used Spoiled's Checkin' Into Rehab, which I thought was super pretty.
- And this is probably the type of photo that would have gotten me mean comments because my lack of clean up is even more apparent in this photo.  But it shouldn't be about a not flawless application (because please, "I have no flaws, at all." said no one ever, or well if they did say it they were totally lying because we all have our flaws and they should not be held against us in anyway.) it should be about beauty and things that make us happy and give us joy.

Tick Tock Love!

To commemorate today I wore Tick Tock's Midnight Magic, Salvador Dali, and Midsummer Night with Once Upon A Time as a highlight.  I did some TheBodyNeeds mixing medium with some of them, and Revlon's Emerald liner, Urban Decay mascara.  And lips are NYC Special FX lipstick in Hot Tamale.

What's today you ask?  Well I found out I'll get to be one of the new models for Tick Tock!!!  How epic and amazing is that?  I cannot tell you how excited I am for this.

 - I am so in love with this necklace, it's from Luxe Chimere.
- Also new adorable sunglasses from Ebay, they were like 7 dollars, I probably could have got them cheaper, but I couldn't wait long for the shipping time with moving, and these were from a local seller.

Sugarpill And Concrete...

 - This is a look I did on Saturday for a meet up <3   It was a morning get together so this might have been a bit dark but I liked the way it turned out anyway.
I used:

Essence Eyebrow Designer in Brown.

Stila Prime Pot in Caramel.

Sugarpill's Dollipop in the inner corners (which also stained me.).
Concrete Mineral's Revolver just a touch in the middle.
Concrete Mineral's Sabotage with TheBodyNeeds mixing medium for the rest of the outside corners.
Lashes were Urban Decay Big Fatty mascara.

Concrete Mineral's Sexy Lips Lip Tint in Maniac.

 - Then I did try and take a few outside too to better show the makeup, you can certainly see the lip tint better outside than in, it was more noticable in person, I really liked it, it was my first time using one of the lip tints from Concrete.

And you can't really see the jacket but I adore this jacket.
 - Random yay for cute bat necklace <3
