World Diabetes Day

Hi All! I have a very special post for you today, it's World Diabetes Day. Diabetes has affected my entire family in some way or another. I have many cousins and great-grandparents who are diabetic along with my mom and even my baby kitty. 


From the World Health Organizations website:

Diabetes is a chronic disease, which occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. This leads to an increased concentration of glucose in the blood (hyperglycaemia).


World Diabetes Day raises global awareness of diabetes - its escalating rates around the world and how to prevent the illness in most cases. Started by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and WHO, the Day is celebrated on 14 November to mark the birthday of Frederick Banting who, along with Charles Best, was instrumental in the discovery of insulin in 1922, a life-saving treatment for diabetes patients.
WHO estimates that more than 346 million people worldwide have diabetes. This number is likely to more than double by 2030 without intervention. Almost 80% of diabetes deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries.

Once again the nail community has banded together in support of a good cause. We are wearing blue today in support of World Diabetes Day. 
My mani is a simple one, Peripera 019. It is one of my favorite polishes ever. Flawless application, a wide brush, super cute bottle and its scented on top of all the other good things about it! On to the pics!




Now it does have a tealish tone to it but I assure you the blue is stunning!
Please feel free to visit my page on facebook and leave your blue mani of the day!

  4. Design your website from the start with
    search optimization in mind. But in both cases, webmasters still force themselves to do so because article marketing is effective in driving targeted traffic to their
    websites. This is one of the best burst talents you
    will get and is a must have if you want to burst anyone down.
