Do you know what Lupus is? Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body. (Lupus.org)
It's one of those diseases that is often misunderstood because the person may not 'look' sick. They have flareups and remissions, too - so they can be fine one day and incapacitated the next.
The Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida are linking up today to show their support for one of our own who has this disease, in hopes of bringing more awareness to it. Put on Purple today!
I started with Revlon Gwen's Crush, a red-leaning violet with an awesome shimmer.
I needed undies for this because Lacquerhead Polish Space Cadet 2.0 is a very sheer jelly, and would take too many layers to get opaque... but look at those glitters! I really like how you can see some of the violet shimmer from Gwen's Crush, and then flashes of the holo glitters.
I really liked the way the stamping looked over the glitter in Dressed Up Digits' mani, so I tried to do something similar with Shany 20 and Finger Paints Silver Sculpture.
Purple over purple over purple - lots of layers.. kinda like Lupus, I guess. It doesn't appear to be a straightforward disease.
