Purple nails for Epilepsy Awareness

Wednesday 26th March 2014 (tomorrow) is Epilepsy awareness day. This is something close to my heart as my husband has epilepsy and has had since he was 7 yrs old. We have worked very hard and he has been fit free for about 3 years (touch wood). His epilepsy is medication controlled however some people aren't this lucky.

 I feel that not many people know a lot about epilepsy to the point where people even joke about it.
Any damage to the neurotransmitters in the brain can disrupt the workings of the brain and cause fits. To see someone have a fit can be a very scary experience. There are several types of epilepsy and some people may suffer from blackouts rather than fits. There are lots of triggers, symptoms and effects of epilepsy and I would really encourage people who know someone with epilepsy to research into it.

Our All things nails group on Facebook are showing our support by creating Purple mani's. Purple is the chosen colour for Epilepsy awareness.

Here is my mani using MUA 'Frozen Yoghurt', Models Own 'Purple Haze' and Barry M 'Prickly Pear'.

Thankyou for reading.

  1. That design is so pretty. I will go and see what I can come up with. My father in law had epilepsy and you are so right, witnessing a fit is a terrifying experience.

  2. Thankyou :-) will look forward to seeing your design
