White glitter gradient on green base

The pink week is over by now but Karin at Vacker&underbar brought some attention to the fact that October also means Depression Awareness Month which has the color green , which made her to decide to have a green week, hence United in Green. This is not the same thing as cancer where we can buy pins and donate money but I still think it's important to bring attention to it.

It's like a hidden disease filled with prejudices, one depression isn't similar to another, and they maybe don't need the same treatment. And there's one thing feeling blue, another to feel depressed due to a fail or loss and then there's clinical depression etc. And some people say that one should just cheer up but sometime it's not as simple as that, sometime it's about needing support from friends and family, someone that listen, and some time it's the opposite; to talk with someone outside the family and in some cases medicating.

With this post I'd like to point out that if you know someone that you know that is feeling down or depressed, give them a hug and/or some love. If you feel depressed, do something that makes you happy or in some situations the best thing is to search for help.. I know some people who have found joy in polish collecting and polish painting, it has become some sort of healing. How quirky it ever may be, what ever makes you happy is good.

This manicure made me happy when I wore it at least. I wore it during this summer and well, green is a great color. I'm also really found of these reversed glitter gradients. Hope you like it.

  4. Mycket snyggt! Det ser ut som flingsalt på en smaskig böna eller nåt! LOL! Det var menat som en komplimang! :)
    Depression hjälps bäst med aktivitet, att aktivera sig, hur mycket motstånd det än finns. Gör nåt litet! Been there, done that. :)

    1. Tack! Hahaha.. roligaste tolkningen någonsin, gillar nästan manikyren mer nu! ;) haha
      Och du har rätt, motion är toppen, tex att bara ta sig ut på en kort promenad och få lite luft. :)

  10. Awww such a happy and quirky mani!!!! Love it :-) I am a perfect example that polish collecting and painting nails has helped me through my emotional trauma and while I don't speak Swedish I understood LMNPs comment: ACTIVATE is the Secret and I can confirm from own experience. Creativity is Core in treatment of sadness and depression and it seems to be relevant that it is done with your hands - as if creativity has to flow through your Arms and hands out of your body!!!!

      Great to hear that nail polish has helped you! And you describe everything so well, now when you say it I think I've used painting and drawing (just being creative in general) has helped me a lot in the past even though I've not seen it like that, or known that it actually has helped me. :)
