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!

Stamping Saturdays #fightforlightandlive

Hey guys! It’s Stamping Saturday! Feels like forever since I’ve done this since I missed last weeks! Don’t worry I haven’t forgotten to do my CND Vinylux review I’ve just been busy since we got back from vacation working on the new blog. Have you checked out the new Facebook page? Also if you notice I got my own dot com, revamped the layout and Esther and I worked on creating my very own custom Header for both! (She’s really reasonable if you are in the market for one yourself or any other graphic needs!) I’m so excited! 😀

I got some stuff over at Lacquer Me Silly’s Blog Sale and I think my favorite thing that I got was a special surprise pick from Frosso herself (I think Margo really picked it out) 😉 It’s KB Shimmer’s The Dancing Green! Wait till you see how gorgeous it is! This polish couldn’t have come at a better time! 🙂

With the sudden loss of America’s beloved Robin Williams there is finally more light being shown on Mental Health of all kinds. It hits very close to home for me as several very close family members suffer from different types of depression. On FB and Instagram there is a green mani day to show your support and help raise awareness for Depression/Mental Health. You can see the details here. My hope is that people suffer from depression seek help. It is so hard sometimes to realize how bad your depression has gotten the deeper you go, just remember you always have support and there is NO shame in seeking help! PLEASE DO!

 

My Mental Health Awareness mani for #fightforlightandlive is one light coat of Milani’s Fresh teal with two coats of KB Shimmer’s The Dancing Green. I also stamped PUEEN41 using Sephora Formula X’s Pedal to the Medal

Don’t forget to check out my blog sale, I added about 50 new polishes! Once I am done swatching the Nordic set I just might be putting some of them up too! 😉
