It Girl Jelly Polish

Nicole, from it Girl Nail Art, made this gorgeous teal It Girl Jelly Polish as a gift for me for Christmas. I’m not sure how she knew that I love teal polish. Maybe she’s just really perceptive like that???

I got a ton of compliments on this polish when I wore it. Nearly every woman I worked with wanted to know where I got it. Nice job, Nicole! :)

And now I’m going to completely diverge from anything nail polish or makeup related…

Did you know that women got the right to vote in 1920? It’s been 97 years since our foremothers fought for that right and won.

Even though it’s 97 years later, men are still taking away our rights and that has never been more clear than in the last 5 days. I urge you to call your representatives. You can find out who your reps are here: http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/

If at all possible, call them rather than email. It’s a lot harder to ignore a constituent on the phone than it is to ignore an email. If your representatives aren’t representing what you want, you need to tell them. They (‘they’ being mostly white, upper-class, males) are making decisions about parts of our bodies that can not vote. Therefore, we need to make sure they know that our vote will be lost if they don’t listen to us.

Millions of women have marched across this country the last few days. I wish I could have been one of them. Don’t let our voices end there. Call your representatives and make sure they know who you are and what you want. Your voice matters.
