Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida - Purple For Lupus Awareness #BBCFL #PutOnPurple


Hello, Fireflies!

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.


Those glitters!

  12. Girl, you make me want to pull out my plates and do some designing. It's been awhile. Love this look!

  13. Shut your whole face. This looks like it's straight from a magazine! HOW do you come up with all of these utterly fabulous designs? I've never seen stamping over big glitter. It's so pretty and, like you said, layered. And it's for a good cause. A win across the board, I'd say!

    (And I love that you may or may not taunt your puppy about squirrels as we may or may not do the same, haha!)
