American Apparel Factory Grey - Be Nice!

As you may have noticed, a bunch of bloggers have gotten together to take a stand against bullying.  See this blog for more information.  They are posting a purple manicure today (November 8th) to show their support and I have chosen to join them.

I would just like to say Be Nice to others online and in real life.  We are all living in this crazy world together - let's make it enjoyable...mmmmkay?

Here is my purple manicure:)  American Apparel Factory Grey.

"Bullying is not funny.  It is not cool. It is not right. And more importantly, it is not okay.  Most of us are, thankfully, residents of countries that support tolerance and many of our families have settled in these places simply for that reason.  Generations later, it is our responsibility to perpetuate that message of tolerance across our new social platforms, including the internet.

As members of the nail polish blogging community, we share a love of beauty, color, and lacquer.  Other than that, we are remarkably different: from our race to our religion, to our hair color...even to our polish application techniques.  To marginalize anyone because of those differences is completely unacceptable and today I take a stand against that.  I refuse to allow other people's view of "normal" dictate how I behave, believe, and blog.

In solidarity with a multitude of bloggers linked below, my purple manicure represents my proud commitment to the No H8 movement.  Today, November 8, I dedicate my post to ending bullying of any kind and to encouraging diversity and imperfection among our colorful community."

*Please note that Llarowe will be donating $2.00 of every purple polish sold on her site from 12a.m. Thursday, November 8 through 12 a.m. Friday, November 9 to, an organization devoted to ani-bullying education.

Feel free to join in and post your own purple manicure...even if it's not November 8th :) 


  1. Hi Essie Rae, I just wanted to let you know that the copied text after the No H8 doesn't show up in Google Reader. It displays as black text on a black background (and therefore someone has to click over to your blog to read the rest of it). Anyway, just wanted to let you know.

    Factory Grey is a great color.

    1. Oh my, thanks for letting me know. I went ahead and re-typed it. It seems like it got screwed up from copying it from the main site. Thanks again for letting me know!

  2. I love that you participated with such a beautiful mani!!!

  3. What a pretty shade. It reminds me of the lilac OPI Ballet color. Good on you for doing this. I wish I'd have remembered before it was too late to change what I already had on.

    1. You could add a spam of old purple manicures. That's what I was going to do if the sun wasn't out when I got home...

  4. Point well made. This is such a pretty shade of purple. I likey!
