Autism awareness nail art
Last one for April Autism Awareness month! I was really struggling with my designs this year because in past years, I found out that not everyone likes the puzzle piece & blue symbolism. But how do you make an Autism Awareness mani without the symbolism that everyone recognizes? Click to see more!
I don't even need people to really understand what I go through every day. What I do need is people to respect me for who I am, and to know that when I say something is hard for me, or I can't do it, that I'm not just being difficult or trying to get out of doing the work. This goes for any disability, I think!
I used Picture Polish Lakodom for the base. The words are painted with acrylic paint and my Roubloff 00 detail brush. I used my OPI Color Paints for the puzzle pieces.
