11 Week Manicure Challenge: Week 1

Hey Guys, Sorry for the brief hiatus, sometimes life gets in the way. Hopefully back for the long haul now! 
Some Facebook friends and I are doing an 11 week maincure challenge, so I thought I'd share it with you all. It started last week and I did my mani but didn't get a chance to post it, so I'm going to post 2 this week and then get back on track!

  So for week 1, I chose to represent the It Gets Better Project. This is a description of the society and what is does taken from the website: 
The It Gets Better Project was created to show young LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will reach – if they can just get through their teen years. The It Gets Better Project wants to remind teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone — and it WILL get better.
I am completely in supposrt of this project, and I wish that more people would show their support. Teen suicide from bullying is a major problem, and if more people were tolerant it would make a huge difference. 
So this mani I did was on October 20th, which was Spirit Day, where everyone was asked to wear purple in support of LGBT teens to raise awareness for the It Gets Better Project.

I used Wet N Wild Buffy the Violet Slayer, and I apologise for the colour looking off in the pics, it was the only way I could capture somewhat close to the actual polish colour.

BTVS is a gorgeous Violet purple with tiny blue and pink shimmer particles in it. It's a bit frosty, but not too brushstrokey. (yep that's a word now!)

This was 2 easy coats with base and top coat

Hope you enjoyed seeing this colour, I absolutely love it, but then this shade of purple is my favourite colour, so what's not to love?
Please check out the It Gets Better website, and Take the Pledge to help spread the word!
