November 8 for No H8 Manicure

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 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 and even to our polish application techniques. To look down on 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 my purple No H8 manicure today, I went with China Glaze Urban Night. I received this polish in a swap with Tara from Polishy of Truth. I thought it was fitting to choose a polish gifted to me by a friend and fellow blogger for today. I am so fortunate to have met so many amazing ladies through blogging and they are a testament to what a wonderful community we have going in the nail polish world.
