Eradicate 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.
 
 
 - 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.

Let us stop the bullying:
