As most of you are likely already aware, there was a mass shooting at an elementary school yesterday morning in Newtown, Connecticut, USA where 20 children and 6 adults were “slaughtered” (according to the news casts we have been watching) by a man, who also killed his own mother and then took his own life.
As we know, the nail community is all about banding together to bring awareness to everything we can through nail art, even though some may think that nail art isn’t “doing any good”, but any way we can help or show our support is what really matters to us. So we all pulled together to all do white manicures to support the families that are going through this really hard time, and to honour peace, non violence and remembrance of the innocent.
For this mani, I used 2 coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On and topped it with Julep Melissa to give it a pearl finish. I really love this look, even though the reason for it is not a happy time.
Although this tragedy doesn’t effect me personally, I can’t imagine going through something like this, or having something like this happening in my community and the hurt the family members of the lost are going through. My heart and thoughts go out to this community.
