BLUE NAILS FOR WORLD DIABETES DAY

Today is World Diabetes and it's lovely that I can show my support through my nails and my blog : ) I have a friend who is a year older than me and has type 1 diabetes so I know how difficult it can be; a couple of years ago when she being as careful with her diet as she should have been she took a turn for the worst and ended up in hospital for a couple of months but thankfully she's much better now. I also have a few family members who suffer too so I had to join it today. 

Diabetes is a chronic disease that arises when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces.  Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that enables cells to take in glucose from the blood and use it for energy. Failure to produce insulin, or of insulin to act properly, or both, leads to raised glucose (sugar) levels in the blood (hyperglycaemia). This is associated with long-term damage to the body and failure of various organs and tissues. (Taken from the International Diabetes Federation website where you can find out more about diabetes and today)

So for the nails I did 2 coats of Kiko 336 (the Nails Inc Baker Street dupe) and then topped it off with one coat of Ninja Polish Sticks n' Stones and 2 coats of topcoat. The accent nail is supposed to be an accu check testing strip, complete with the drop of blood on the end. 






Check out everybody else's blue mani's and share your own : )

    4. I do not know whether it's just me or if everyone else encountering problems with your website. It seems like some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This might be a problem with my web browser because I've had this happen previously.
      Appreciate it
