Purple Polish for No H8


Today, in support of the November 8 for No H8 in the Nail Polish Blogger Community, I put on a pretty purple polish.  I read about this cause on Imperfectly Painted's post, which you can check out here.  I wanted to support this cause because I hate to see/read about bullying in any form, whether online or in real life.  It always saddens me when I hear about people's negativity toward another.  Whatever happened to, "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all."?

This is 2 coats of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Purple Haste (limited edition).
 Pretty royal purple with a small amount of tiny blue pretty

From the Eradicate Hate in the Nail Polish Community page:
"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."
