Zoya - Carly

Join us on November 8th to stand against bullying! We will be posting purple manicures on our blogs to represent our commitment to the movement. We ask you to join us! All are welcome: Do purple nail art, or purple make up, or purple crafts for the day, or whatever else you’d like to do.

Copy the following statement to your blog, and check back here on Thursday for an Inlinkz code to also post on your blog!  (Inlinkz code will allow us to have a collective list of blogs participating)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.



My purple mani is Zoya - Carly. I swear she was purple in the bottle, hopefully she is not too red-toned to fit in. :) I used Orly's "Matte Top" matte top coat, and I've only used it a couple times before since I ran out of my China Glaze - Matte Magic. I've now confirmed that I'm really not a fan of the Orly version, it's not matte enough for me, it's great if you want a satin finish though!

It's also technically November 9th, but I haven't gone to bed yet so it's still the 8th to me, lol. ^_^
