#TheNailArtSquad Raises Awareness for Epidermolysis Bullosa

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world and Happy Friday to you all!!!  Yup, Friday is here and I couldn't be happier.  My work week has been hectic despite the fact I've only had a four day work week.  I'm sleeping all weekend.  Or at least I think I will and then I get plans and that just goes by the wayside.

Today I'm back collaborating with the Nail Art Squad.  This month, we are painting purple butterfly manicures to raise awareness for Epidermolysis Bullosa.  My friend Meagan had a close friend named Taylor who recently passed away from this disease.  When she told me about the disease, my heart was broken. Epidermolysis Bullosa is a rare skin disease which causes the skin to literally blister.  Those who are diagnosed with it have a very short life expectancy due to the fact that the skin is very fragile.  The children are known as butterfly children due to their fragile nature like a butterfly.

One night when I sat down to do my nails, Meagan asked if I had ever done butterfly nails.  Of course I started to show her all my previous manicures and she said she wanted her nails to be purple butterflies for Taylor.  I decided to draft up a design on my own nails and told Meagan that I would be posting it on my blog to raise awareness for the ideas and to remember Taylor.  Then it hit me, I could raise more awareness if I did a collaboration.  So I contacted Sarah and we gathered up the Nail Art Squad for today's manicure.

Let's take look!

Colors Used:
  • China Glaze - Lotus Begin
  • China Glaze - Let's Jam
  • China Glaze - I Got a Blue Attitude
Isn't it lovely?  The whole manicure turned out perfectly.  When I was painting it, I told Meagan that Taylor was cheering me on making sure I didn't mess up.  I truly believe it too because out of all the butterfly wing designs I've done, this one was the easiest to create.  Usually my lines are too thick, the gradient doesn't work....the list can go on and on.  Every single step went smoothly.

Let's take a look at the other girl's manicures!!

I hope that one day they find a cure for this horrible disease.  Learning about something like this really makes you count your blessings.

Until next time, <3.
