Vale Robin Williams

I am wearing green today not just because I love green but because it is the colour for depression awareness. I'm sure, like many of you, I was deeply saddened by the death of Robin Williams. When the person I would class as the world's funniest man dies from depression I feel strongly that as a society we have to sit up and take notice. I have chronic depression and have had it for 20 years, there has been improvement in society's attitudes towards depression since my early days of battling depression but it's obvious it needs to go further. There are so many myths and such a strong belief that people just need to "get over it", it's just not that easy and as Robin Williams death shows us again it can be fatal. We need to do more to stop losing so many to a difficult but treatable illness. While some would criticise me and ask what a simple nail art design can do to help depression, I think "awesome" because at least it's made people think about depression.

Vale Robin Williams, you gave us all so much and the world has lost a beautiful soul.

Colours used - base on ring Powder Perfect custom, middle finger Zoya Meg, ring finger Cirque Hellebore, pinkie base Zoya Tilda and other colour in stripes and dots Zoya Tracie.


  1. Such a tragic loss :'-(

    Lovely manicure for a great man and cause. :-)

  2. I'm in the same boat as you Theresa and it really is exhausting trying to explain to people that depression, and mental illness in general, doesn't respond to "bootstraps". Hugs to you and I hope you're traveling well at the moment (and if you're not, I hope this episode passes sooner rather than later).
