Wearing Blue to Raise Autistic Awareness

I have a handful of ‘pet’ causes and charities I like to support.  Jasmine, at ColourCoated nail blog, brought to our attention that April is Autism Awareness Month.  The color to represent this awareness if blue.  Allow me to share my blue Autism Awareness with you…

Here is OPI’s ‘Yoga-ta Get This Blue’.  What a deal too.  I got it at Walmart’s hair salon called ‘Smartstyle’ for 60% off.  I picked up 3 other colors too.  At $3.40 a bottle, I HAD to get them!

‘Yoga-ta Get This Blue’ is that deep, inky blue color that I love.  It’s quite unexpected, looks blue upon first site, and had me staring at my own nails.  Do you think other people find that odd?  Hmm, probably.

I have on 3 coats with a top coat of Vite and then Orly’s ‘Glosser.’  I was looking for top shine!

Upon viewing my photos, I see that I need to wrap the polish around the top of my nails.  Amazing what I find when I scrutinize my results with close-up photography.  Maybe with more practice and, learning to use a photo-fixing software, I can glamorize my nails.  That and working on moisturizing them every 10 minutes.

And talking about glamorizing, Libby is going in for a photo shoot tomorrow.  Wish us luck.  Libby doesn’t get out in public very often.  We hope to get some photos that are blog-worthy.

I have a bestie that has an autistic daughter.  A friend of Jasmine’s has two autistic children.  She is currently raising money for an autism awareness walk that she will be participating in later this year.

Her name is Jessica Scott, and if you would like to donate to the cause you can do so here:

Please consider helping Jessica help a worthy cause.
