Polish Me Silly "Green Genie" for depression awareness


Hello lovelies!

Today we raise awareness for depression and related conditions. This has been initiated by @nailsandpolkadots and I want to contribute this mani, since I have seen depression in my direct surroundings and what it does to people. I chose to wear Polish Me Silly "Green Genie", which is green for today's #fightforlightandlive and a genie, for the recent passing of Robin Williams. 

This nail polish represents for me the light and colours and beauty that people with depression are often just unable to see because of the illness. With this mani I want to show my support to everybody who is suffering from this and let them know that they're not alone and that we understand.
This is two coats of Green Genie topped with two coats of top coat. As you can see, it is amazing! No fishing, no problems whatsoever. 

Last thing I want to share is this. If everything seems like it just can't get any worse and you're thinking of doing something irreversible, please call one of these numbers first:
USA: 1-800-273-TALK (8255)

NL: 0900 0113 www.113online.nl
Belgium: 1813 or 02 649 95 55.
For other countries, please just google, there are many many people out there that are willing to help you and have the training to do so. You are worth being helped.

  8. Lovely polish for a very important cause.
    I have a Yes Love polish, which is a cheap brand, that looks very similar to this indie, in the very same shade!
