Hello Everyone! Happy Earth Day! Let your inner hippie out and go celebrate mother earth. It’s sad to say besides my windowsill garden and recycling and re-purposing things so they don’t end up in the dump, I don’t feel like it’s enough and comfort myself with the thought every little bit helps.
To help spread awareness and have fabulous nails, I did a swirl watermarble manicure dipping four fingers at a time. I know it looks dreary but it’s been raining for almost two weeks straight, go figure,
Polishes used: Essie Petal Pusher, Essie Garden Variety, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Cutepillar, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Groove-y.
Watermarble spiral pattern for 5 finger dip.
2013 Earth Day Manicure (yep I had nubbins lol)
Thanks for reading!
A brief Earth Day history:
Earth Day was first proposed in 1969 at a UNESCO Conference in San Francisco by peace activist John McConnell to honor Earth and promote peace. The day was suppose to be celebrated on the first day of spring March 21, 1970. The day was sanctioned in a Proclamation written by McConnell and signed by Secretary General U Thant at the United Nations.
A month later US Senator Gaylord Nelson founded a separate Earth Day to be held as a educational forum to be held on April 22, 1970. He was later awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom Award in recognition of his work.
While April 22 is mainly focused on the United States, an organization launched by Denis Hayes, who was selected by the senator to be the coordinator for his earth day, founded the Earth Day Network in 1990. They too Earth Day worldwide and organized events in 141 nations. Numerous communities celebrating Earth Week, an entire week of activities focused on environmental issues.
