Purple Mani for no H8 day

I started nail blogging almost a year ago now. when i started i had no clue what i was doing, and if you go through my posts over the year you can see long nails, nubbins, yuck cuticles...and yes mine are ...slowly getting better, no clean up,bad clean up and so on.
i never professed to e a professional but when i saw a blog the other week telling blogger to clean up or die i was horrified that this lovely community that had taken me under its wing was getting so nasty!

So after a bunch of...well these horrible posts by bloggers that shall remain nameless the nail blogging community could stand it no longer. today is no H8 day.
Below is the statement. 
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.
So everyone is doing a purple mani for today. and me im no exception.

My mani for today is from a great brand called Gloss n Sparkle. this polish is calledDecadence.
It is a lovely shade of glittery purpley /burgundy. and 2 coats cover your nails just perfectly.

And to show we are all joining in. here are my 2 girls with their nails painted too with gloss n sparkles decadence .
