Nail Art: World Diabetes Day 2021

Today is World Diabetes Day and November overall is Diabetes Awareness Month.

Type one diabetes can be diagnosed at any age, are you aware of the four T's?
The four T's stand for Toilet, Thirsty, Tired and Thinner.

Nails: World Mental Health Day 2018 - Young People and Mental Health in a Changing World

"Adolescence and the early years of adulthood are a time of life when many changes occur, for example changing schools, leaving home, and starting university or a new job. For many, these are exciting times. They can also be times of stress and apprehension however. In some cases, if not recognized and managed, these feelings can lead to mental illness" - World Health Organization

Nails: World Diabetes Day

November is Diabetes Awareness Month and November 14th is World Diabetes Day. I also did awareness nails last year which you can see here.

The reason behind today being World Diabetes Day is because the 14th November was Sir Fredrick Banting's birthday, the co-founder of insulin.

Nails: #SockItSelfie Eating Disorder Awareness Week

Eating Disorder Awareness Week runs from 27th February until 5th March 2017. This week also ties in to the National Eating Disorder Awareness Week (#NEDAwareness) in the States.

This year the theme is raising awareness of the importance of early intervention [more information here]. As usual the UK theme is sock it to eating disorders, and so here are my nails for my #SockItSelfie

26 Great Nail Art Ideas: Red and Pink - Smear for Smear

I am a little early with my nail art for the Smear for Smear campaign. However I think the nails also tie in with the pink / red themed challenge for 26 great nail art ideas.

[picture from bnailedtoperfection]

The idea is during 22nd - 28th January it is smear for smear week, whereby people in the UK raise awareness for how important it is to get your cervical screening test done, as uncomfortable and embarrassing as it is. People who have a cervix need to get them checked! Sera worded the importance much better than I could (read it here).

Traditionally you smear your lipstick and post a selfie, me being a nail art person started with a light pink base and stamped some red lips on to my nails and then smeared those with acetone.

Nails: World Mental Health Day 2016 - Psychological First Aid

This year's World Mental Health Day theme is psychological first aid, I did nails in 2014 for this cause as well which you can find here. While a plaster isn't going to cut it for psychological first aid I think it is the general symbol for first aid.
