Nail of the Day: Show some PRIDE!

This weekend was Gay Pride in Austin. To show my support, I painted a Pride inspired mani!

The LGBT community holds a very special place in my heart. My mother-in-law is gay, and I have gone through my own struggles of gender identity and sexual experimentation. My first Pride celebration was an amazing experience, and something that I will never forget. I hope to take my daughter one day (when she is an adult!) to a pride with my husband and m.i.l. We want her to understand, above all, that everyone deserves to be loved, and we should all be able to love who we choose. Now enough of my soapbox, on to the mani! ; )

I decided to try some very basic nail art and free handed a rainbow striped accent nail, along with the "NO H8" logo on my middle finger. My stripes and lettering aren't the best, so be kind!
I used Spoiled by Wet n Wild Visibly Slimming black cream as a base and the following colors for the rainbow stripes:
Sephora by OPI/Betsey Johnson - Pushing Your Luck
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Sunkissed
Maybelline Color Show - Fierce N Tangy
Maybelline Color Show - Go Go Green
Nails Inc - Baker St.
Zoya - Dannii
For the "NO H8" lettering, I used:
Maybelline Color Show - Porcelin Party
Zoya - Dannii
