No H8: Eradicate Hate purple 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 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.

Let me just say that with the advancement of technology, bullying has morphed and become more cruel than it was ever before.  Now called cyberbullying, it's easy for some to sit back with their keyboards and spew whatever hatred or malice without any thought or reason.  I really can't fathom why would anyone sit and spread so much negativity over a manicure, nail art or even if they had a clean cuticle line.

As always, my policy will forever be....don't like? Click "X" and that should resolve your problem.  




Stop the hate!

  5. Hehe, your comment about clicking the 'X' brought a smile to my face. Very true, if you don't like it, don't read it! Thanks for standing alongside us to support this message. And of course, your mani is beautiful :)
