The one with my No H8 purple mani!

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.
A bunch of bloggers - not just nail bloggers - are joining together today is Eradicate Hate in the Nail Polish Blogging Community. It's not about perfection. It's not about clean-up. It's not about cuticles. It's about the bullying going on in this pasttime. IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE FUN! So for fun...we're showcasing purple manis :) Here's mine - Wet n Wild Buffy the Violet Slayer topped with Cover Band Sticks n Stones!
Check out all the other wonderful manis showcased by all the other participating bloggers!
