When Water Mabling Goes Blue for Autism Awareness!

Hello Lacquer Luvers! Before I get into my post I would like to take a second to thank you all and to apologize. I feel so bad that I haven't been posting regularly. There are alot of things and changes going on in my personal life that are taking the majority of time. I'm trying my best to keep up with everything and trying to take it all in stride. I just wanted to thank you guys for sticking around and baring with me. It truly does mean a lot to me. Now, on to the good stuff! =)

I began my mani with a base of Essie Feed Me then proceeded to build my bullseye. Yup, you read that right. I didn't use a base color for these because I was pressed for time. What I love about Bettina polishes is that their buttery smooth formulas are incredibly pigmented! The colors more or less stay true even in the water. Here I used Bettina Elegant Blue, Vintage & Marshmallow and finished it with a coat of HK Girl.

These colors went nicely together, I think. I love how each nail comes out differently but sometimes wish they all came out the same. I like my middle finger best here. Do you water marble? Have you guys been lighting it up blue? If you are on Instagram tag me (@luvmylacquer) so that I can see!

Early intervention is key with this disorder and that's what I want to get out to the world today. My family began to notice that our son wasn't talking at all by the time he was 18 months old. We asked his Dr. about it and were immediately referred to specialists at the University of Miami. Although hearing that something could be wrong with him devastated us, we knew it was important to try and get him help early on. The specialists at UM did a wonderful job of explaining the disorder to us & guiding us on the right path to get him all the therapy available at the time. Not only was this a huge step for us as a family to gather as much information as possible so that we could aid our baby, it has proved to be fundamental to his success! If you suspect a developmental delay in your child I urge you to go and find out as much as you can. It will make it easier on all parties involved and once your child starts to show you how much they're progressing you will automatically feel rewarded for your determination in taking these early steps. As always, I hope you all liked this post my dear Lacquer Luvers and I look forward to sharing my next post with you, xo!
