Purple Butterflies for Donna | Lupus Awareness

Today I have a very special post for you all.

Recently, a very dear friend of mine found out she has Lupus. Many of you may know her as Donna of @workinggirlnails on Instagram. While Lupus is surely treatable, the last few weeks have not been easy for Donna as she adjusts to the changes in her life and running between doctors appointments. On Thursday, Donna suggested I do some purple butterfly nails with her for Lupus Awareness and I agreed of course! I wasn't sure when I would get to do them, but I knew I wanted to. Yesterday, I got a text from Donna that she was in the ER and not feeling very well. I knew I wanted to push out this design quickly and maybe put a smile on her face sooner rather than later.

I don't know a lot about Lupus, but I'm willing to learn so I can understand what my friend is going through. Donna is one of the most caring, generous people I know and any little thing I can do to give back to her will be done even if it is just some nail art and lending an ear. Donna, you are a light and a positive force and I love you so much. I hope you love these butterflies, they are all for you.

I'm not going to say much about the design today, lets just enjoy the photos shall we?

I hope you all enjoyed this post even without the mani details. If you have any questions about the design or colors please just leave a comment or drop me an email and I will answer you!

Love you Donna. Lots of love and hugs.

  4. This is beautiful. As someone who suffers from lupus, sometimes just having a wonderful friend that cares can make the worst day better. I hope your friend has better days ahead.
