Purple Butterflies for a Cause

Butterfly Nail Art

Hey there everyone! Today I am back with The Nail Art Squad for a purple butterfly mani in honor of Epidermolysis Bullosa Disease Awareness. One of our members knew someone who was affected by this disease and so we thought it would be great for all of us to bring some awareness to the disease. So lets take a look at everyones manis and learn a bit.



Epidermolysis Bullosa Disease Awareness

Here is the disease by definition according to the Mayo Clinic.

Epidermolysis bullosa (ep-ih-dur-MOL-uh-sis buhl-LOE-sah) is a group of rare diseases that cause the skin to blister. The blisters may appear in response to minor injury, heat, or friction from rubbing, scratching or adhesive tape. In severe cases, the blisters may occur inside the body, such as the lining of the mouth or intestines.
Most types of epidermolysis bullosa are inherited. The condition usually shows up in infancy or early childhood. Some people don't develop signs and symptoms until adolescence or early adulthood.
Epidermolysis bullosa has no cure, though mild forms may improve with age. Treatment focuses on addressing the symptoms — such as infection and itching — and preventing pain and wounds. Severe forms may cause serious complications and can be fatal.

Children that have this disease are often called Butterfly Children so we decided to do butterfly manis in the color purple which is the color they use for this disease in awareness type situations.

This mani was created with quite a variety of polishes/paint. I started with Essie Kimono-over. Then I went over that with some light purple watered down acrylic paint. After than I then topped it with China Glaze Seas & Greetings. Then on top of that I sponged on some China Glaze Brand Sparking New Year. Ha, that was a lot I know. So following that I then used acrylic paint and painted on the details.

It was a fun mani to do and I'm pretty happy with its out come. I love everyones manis honestly. They all look so nice together and I'm so happy we all got to do these together.
