I never really know how much of myself to reveal in my blog. After all, it's a nail art blog; not based on politics, human rights or even my own life. I feel I need to apologise if I deviate too far from what's expected, especially in my YouTube videos. However, not for this. I am proud to support marriage equality and I will rant about it as much as I like!
Like far too many people, growing up I was told that being gay is unnatural and wrong. Fortunately, I have a habit of asking "why" and quickly figured out that love is love, no matter what the gender. I balled my eyes out when gay marriage was legalised in New Zealand. I watched it all unfold on Parliament TV and loved all the speeches - well, expect Winston Peter's one and one or two haters. It ended up being a landslide victory and I have never been prouder of my country!
I was thinking about Scotland's legalisation (or is it decriminalisation?) of same-sex marriage while doing these nails and it led to me giving them a rainbow theme. I've seen gay rights nails, I've seen rainbow nails and we all have seen quite enough Valentines nails... but I haven't ever seen any Valentines nails celebrating homosexual love! So here's my tutorial for these nails - and don't forget to hit that "subscribe" button if you haven't already!

Here's the other hand. As you can see there's also a bit of patchwork thrown into this theme as well! It kind of just happened.
Well, I hope you like today's nail art and the theme! I didn't even rant too much - I have to save some for my next equality-related post, right? Can't wait to show you my anti-valentines nails. I didn't want to go straight into "hating love" so did something a bit different... haha, you can see a sneak peek here.
