Depression Awareness Mani

Last Sunday, I did the green nails for Depression / Mental Health Awareness. Liquid Sky Lacquer created three very special polishes in honor of Robin Williams to help promote awareness for Depression and Mental Health. As I said in my other post this hits very home to me, so many people I know suffer from some sort of Mental health issue, PTSD, Depression, that I want to spread the awareness any way I can. You would think that since Depression is such a well known thing that it doesn’t need the awareness. but I think it’s because Depression is so ‘well known’ that people sometimes ignore it, don’t get treated, write it off as nothing, etc. I know it’s hard, but if you are suffering, please seek help, please talk to someone, even if you have to start somewhere small; and if you know of someone going through any kind of depression, please help them through it any way you can!

A total of 100% of the proceeds will be donated: 50% will go to the Families For Depression Awareness, and the other 50% will be donated to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Her first restock she was able to donate $975.10 to the Families for Depression Awareness in honor of Robin Williams and the same amount was also donated toward the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline also in honor of Robin!

This is such an amazing cause and I am so happy to have contributed to it even in a small part. Hopefully my posts are helping to raise awareness to those that needed to see that people care and that there is hope! You are not alone!

I purchased both O’ Captain! My Captain! and Genie, You’re Free! I layered one coat of Genie, You’re Free! overtop China Glazes’s Resolution a gorgeous cobalt blue.

I absolutely love this layered over the cobalt, it really brightens the other blues and the other glitter fleck colors. How can I not love glitter that’s also for a good cause, something so true to me.

Liquid Sky Lacquer is doing another Restock August 23rd at 2PM PST, Don’t miss it!

  1. Thanks for the post, Amanda. As you say, it hits close to home, especially in recent years. While dealing with my mom’s illness, I started developing/ dealing with my own anxiety/depression, and I’ve learned that some friends of mine struggle, too. I think it is helpful to be able to talk about it and not keep it hidden. Although the loss of Robin will always be sad, I am impressed with the awareness movement spurred by it and am glad you are part of it. 🙂
