Sickle Cell Awareness Month - Inspired Nail Art

Hi dolls and gents,

In the month of September we bring awareness to Sickle Cell Disease.

I never like discussing much about Sickle Cell so many reasons to mention but I've been affected and living with this disease for all my 27 years. I can't begin to describe the pain or the nights I've spent at hospitals but through it all God has been an continues to be my source of strength.

What is Sickle Cell Disease or Sickle Cell Anemia? 

I know many people are unaware of SCD and how it affects the lives of persons living with this disease and even their families. 

However, Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) is a serious disorder where the body makes sickle-shaped, or shaped like a crescent red blood cells. These tend to block blood flow which can cause pain and organ damage. To learn more about SCD click the link - Sickle-Cell-Disease-and-Sickle-Cell-Anaemia

I've been following @msnailgasm on Instagranm for some time now and she also has the Sickle Cell Disease and have been sharing that part of her life with her followers; she also requested that as nail technicians we can show our love and support on spreading this awareness by doing Sickle Cell themed nail art designs #NailsForSickleCell which I think was a pretty awesome idea. 

I definitely will join seeing that I had previously started working on such a theme and will continue to share other designs in Awareness throughout the month of September.

Let's Talk Nails!

Help us make others aware of SCD throughout this Awareness Month and continue to do your research.

Much love to the ladies the showed there love and supported by sharing my post via Instagram
