Blue Nails for Autism Awareness


A few days ago, I received an email from Jasmine over at ColourCoated.com about showcasing blue nails in honor of Autism Awareness Month:

"In case you were unaware, April is Autism Awareness month, and April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day.
Everyone is encouraged to wear blue in order to raise awareness, encourage early diagnosis and early intervention and to celebrate the lives of those that we care about who have autism.

A very good friend of mine has 2 young children with autism, and I used to teach children with autism, so this is something that is very close to my heart.
The idea to do blue manis for the month of April hit me when my friend asked me if she could raid my stash for blue nail polish to wear to an autism awareness rally.

I think having all of us nail bloggers rockin' some blue for autism awareness is a great way to get word out about the cause.
It's really simple to participate. All you've got to do is paint your nails blue or incorporate some kind of blue into your mani, and post it on your blog."

With that being said, today I have a navy blue polish by Ulta called Blue Streak. I applied two coats for complete opacity.

I do not remember if I mentioned this or not but I did find an Ulta about 35 minutes from where I live. I was so excited and got the boyfriend to take me there. I love the whole layout of the store! I was a bit overwhelmed by the vast amount of items that were there being that this was the first Ulta I have ever been to (plus this Ulta had a salon inside as well), that I decided to just pick up a few polishes and make a run for it. However, I definitely plan on going back in the future because those rows and rows of products just amaze me!

I hope you all participate and show support for Autism Awareness! I will be posting more blue themed manicures during this month!

By the way, notice that my nails are back to being super short? I had a stomach virus over the weekend and I just let my nails go to crap and I cut them all down yesterday!
