30 Days of Colour: Matte finish Autism awareness nail art


Today for 30 Days of Colour challenge everyone is sharing nail polish with matte finish and I wan to share mattified nail art, which I did for Autism awareness this month.  Autism spectrum is a group of neurodevelopmental disorders characterized by difficulties in social interactions and communication with other people. There is no cure for this disease, but early behavioral therapy and specifically designed education programs can make a huge difference in the life quality of people with ASDs. Therefore it's really important to recognizes symptoms early in childhood and autism awareness helps to spread information about problem. If you want to participate use blue color or puzzle symbols during month of April, as it's chosen to be Autism awareness month. You can find more info and donate money here or on any other website designed to help with autism.
In my nail art I tried to depict socializing problems of people with ASDs, even though their brains work differently, they should have a chance for normal social life.  I used my top coat Essie Matte about you for matte effect.

  1. I don't know what it is about this mani, but I am in love with it. It has the most character of any Autism Awareness nails I've ever seen! My younger brother is on the spectrum, so this cause hits me really close to home. Thank you for creating such a thoughtful piece of nail art around something so important! <3
