Today (April 2 here) is World Autism Awareness Day, and a lot of nail bloggers are posting blue or puzzle piece nails both today and throughout the month. The exact cause of autism is unknown (although it’s probably not vaccines), but it affects 1-2 in 100 kids in developed countries. This number is increasing every year, in part due to greater awareness, which means people are more likely to seek diagnosis.
These are my blue nails for today – I’ll be trying to incorporate blue into all my manis this month. For this, I used ulta3 Get Teal, a dark inky blue creme that’s part of ulta3’s Autumn collection, Dark Romance. I layered the gorgeous iridescent Alanna Renee Milky Way on top – I love the squares in this, and it would make a great topper for galaxy nails!
The zebra nail is from Glam by Manicare Sunset Safari Express Nail Wraps – these come in packs of 40 with two designs, and adhere to the nail pretty strongly. They don’t wrinkle much with Seche Vite on top, which seems to be a rare quality! They’re pretty easy to use, but wrinkled a little bit since my nails are quite curved lengthwise. I’m looking forward to using these in a full mani and seeing how long they last.
Glam by Manicare Express Nail Wraps retail for $9.99 for a pack of 40, and can be found at Priceline, Target and selected pharmacies. For more information see here.
Glam by Manicare strips were PR samples, and Alanna Renee Milky Way was a gift, which did not affect my opinion of either product. For more information, see Disclosure Policy.
