No H8: Let's Stop Hate in the Nail Blogging Community

Good early morning, my darling readers!  I'm standing today with my fellow nail bloggers in the movement to denounce hate in the nail community.  We're all wearing purple mani's, since that is the color chosen to represent the anti-bullying campaign.  As a child who was bullied, this is something I really feel strongly about since bullying is NOT okay.

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. 

You may recognize this from when I did my Chronic Pain mani because it is the same polish.  I will upload another photo of my current purple mani later today as it is currently 4:38 am and I really need to get myself to bed since I have a doctor's appointment in the morning.  I just had to post this before I could sleep though.

As always, thank you for stopping by to visit with me for a few minutes.  Have a good morning!  Huggles!


I love hearing from y'all and will respond (eventually, lol) to all comments left here.
