Save the Bess Bestie Twin Mani
August 20, 2013
Did you guys catch the below photo last night on Instagram? Awhile back now I sent Jessie (IG: @nailsofjessiek) one of Hexnail Jewlery’s charms as well as Sally Hansen’s Yellow Mellow and Black Out. I didn’t give Jessie much choice and made her do some bestie twin nails with me. These manicures are for Saving the Bees!
You may of heard about how the Bee population in the world is slowly dwindling. Some say it is due to the increased usage of pesticides which affect the incests immune system. Some bees are just disappearing from their colonies giving it the term “Colony collapse disorder.” Honey Bee’s in particular are essential for pollinating large crop field’s and without them we could lose the lovely variety of vegetables and fruits that we have in our super markets. Bee keepers around the country transport large amounts of bee colonies just so those particular plants can be pollinated.
Bees are just too cute, when they aren’t stinging you, so why not do a save the bees mani?! A little while ago Celina (IG: @celinas_treasures) did a manicure with a polish line from Norway that is creating polish especially for saving the bees. I suggested we start the tag #savethebeesmani on Instagram to try and raise awareness about this worldwide occurrence.
Let’s make sure our crops aren’t harmed any longer from this. If you’d like to you can sign this ongoing petition at change.org HERE to ban certain chemicals from being sprayed on our crops, something France did back in 1998, lets get with the program! I’m not going to sit here and lecture or push my beliefs so if you would like more information check out this 60 minutes video HERE back from 2009.
We used Colette’s tutorial from Simplelittlepleasures on youtube, she is really the watermarbling goddess, check her out if you want to try this water marbling design!
You can purhcase these sally hansen colors, which I always have success with at your local drugstore or walmart. If you are international then you can get them HERE.
The bee charm can be found HERE at hexnail jewlery’s site.
Don’t forget to tag your Bee mani’s with #savethebeesmani!
