Bullying is something that needs to be ended ALL around the world. It’s a pity that hate even exists in the world, but it does, and the way people showcase it is definitely NOT okay especially if it ends up hurting somebody physically, mentally, emotionally, etc.
So, today, I am dedicating this post to putting an end to bullying. Praying that we can all show some unity and try to bring more LOVE into this world. That is my short and sweet little speech on the soapbox today.
Let me share my brush with bullying. Being Indian (and the ONLY Indian in a small town in Minnesota) made it really hard for children to understand me and my heritage, especially back in the early ’90s. My Indian name was made fun of (my first name is Shipra) and the P was always replaced with a T, so you get my drift. I was a studious child, and when I received my grades (yes, they were A’s), I remember quite unfondly the girl that would pass the graded papers back to me (the teacher would give the graded papers to each row, and you passed it back to the person it belonged to) and she would always remark: Oh, gee, I wonder if you could score higher than a 100!? I would ignore it, but I think it did effect me somewhere down the line. I am a perfectionist, and I do remain proud of the fact. Bullying is definitely not okay. I am glad that it did not go further than this, and some people are not so lucky. So, please, November 8 (and beyond) for No H8!
Now, I want to share with you my purple manicure for No H8. I used Nail Pak Keira, a gorgeous aubergine with red flakies and duochrome shimmer of purple to blue. It’s spectacular!
The formula was amazing, and it becomes opaque in 3 thin coats, which also means that it dries super fast (BONUS!) and if you don’t know anything about Nail Pak, let me go ahead and share that with you. Shark Tank is a TV show that is broadcast on ABC on Fridays (my husband and I are absolutely fond of this show and cheer for the many participants) which gives an opportunity to inventors/business owners to share equity in order to receive an investment from a shark (a.k.a. one of the famous sharks is Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks). Barbara Lampugnale, the creator of Nail Pak, came on the show and got an investment from Lori Greiner, and MUCH more than that. At first, she introduced Nail Pak to QVC, and due to its success, you can now find Nail Pak at Ulta! SO amazing, and incredibly happy for her! She deserves it, and once you try her unbelievable product, you will see how great and wonderful it really is! To read more on Nail Pak, check out one of my earlier reviews: Nail Pak Ellen.
What’s so special about Nail Pak, you ask? Well, if you remove the bottle from its pedestal, underneath is a circular file, and a numerous amount of nail polish remover pads. Yes, that’s awesome! It was created because Barbara Lampugnale was fed up with have nail polish, remover, cotton balls, and the like all over the coffee table and this solved the problem! So, there you have it! A unique product!
Now, let’s get to the pictures, shall we?
Here’s a gorgeous close-up, so you can see all the flakies and shimmer! (Cue: Ooohs and aaaahs!)
NailPak is available in many different colors – a lot of fashionable colors – at their homepage:www.dualitycosmetics.com, and retails for $20 per NailPak on the site. You can also order them from QVC HERE, and they are now available in Ulta!!
