#FightForLightAndLive Depression Awareness Nail Art

After the tragic passing of Robin Williams just under a week ago, the nail art community decided to come together and paint our nails green in honour and respect of depression awareness - which is what caused Robin Williams to take his own life.  If you are suffering from depression or its sidekick anxiety you need to speak up! Sometimes this can be the hardest thing in the world to even think about doing, but it will be so worth it in the end.

What a tragic loss of life RW was - I think everyone felt it.  Its not like I knew him personally, and you reading this probably didn't either, but everyone knew him in a different movie playing a wide verity of characters.  A career which spans over so many generations.  Whether it was Jumanji, Mrs Doubtfire or Aladdin, it was Good Will Hunting or Good Morning Vietnam.  A true legend indeed.  

I decided to paint my nails white, with some green floral stamping.  I love this plain, simple and delicate look.  


Polishes Used:
Sinful Colors - Last Chance (Pictured)
Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - In Record Lime
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Lickety-Split Lime
Seche Vite
(MoYou London Pro Plate 04)

I started off by painting all of my nails with Snow Me White.  Once that was completely dry, I painted a blob of my light green, Lickety-Split Lime and my dark green, In Record Lime to the flower print on my MoYou London Pro Plate 04 and scraped them down as a gradient.

I stamped the flowers onto my nails, in a gradient effect as I mentioned above, from dark green down to light.  I felt that something was missing, so I added a border of Last Chance to my nails.  Its all topped off with a coat of Seche Vite.

Last, but not least, Rest In Peace Robin Williams - I hope that you're in a better place now.  I will always try to roll a 5 or an 8 though - just in case.  You will be missed.
