Happy Spirit Day!!!!!! A New Holiday I will happily celebrate!

I like to keep things light, easy & fun on my blog, but this is something I wanted to inform others about, and something I strongly believe in.

This is from TheNewsofToday.com and can be read in full here

"A special “unofficial” holiday has been set up by members of Facebook to honor 6 boys and many others who have taken their lives due to homophobic abuse. The Holiday is being called “Spirit Day” and it will take place all day on October 20, 2010.

A Facebook Event Page has been set up for those that will be participating in Spirit Day by wearing Purple. This is the information posted on the page:
“It’s been decided! On October 20th, 2010, we will wear purple in honor of the 6 boys, and the countless others around the world, who have committed suicide in recent weeks due to homophobic abuse in their homes at at their schools.
PURPLE represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality.
Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your family, friends, co-workers, neighbors and schools.
You can visit the Facebook Event Page for Spirit Day, and click “I’m Attending” if you plan on taking part at: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=144778572233301. "

If you don't agree, or have a different opinion than mine, or others that are supporting this, that is completely okay, and I understand that everyone has different views. All I ask, is that you at least enjoy the manis!!

In honor of Spirit Day, here are my purple manis!!

Funky Fingers Jester

Nina Ultra Pro Purple-Xing

China Glaze Flying Dragon

Sally Hansen Purple Pizzazz

This is China Glaze Medallion over Flying Dragon

Pure Ice Cheatin over black

Now here are some fun manis I did in the past!!

This is Forever 21s, Love & Beauty in Lavender w/ OPI Lincoln Park After Dark matte, for tips

China Glaze VIII is the dark purple base and OPI DS Original was used for the Konad design

These are 2 different manis  I did using just a black polish for a base, and Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Turquoise Opal for the design. 

I again used just a black polish for the base, and used Sally Hansen Grape Going for the tips

For this last one, I used China Glaze VIII for the base and Amour Rain Glitter for the tips
