Election Day

Not only is today Election Day in the US, it’s a Presidential Election day!

So today I have another new Pretty & Polished polish called… Election Day!  I couldn’t not wear it, right?

Election Day is an awesome mix of red squares, blue hexes, white stars and “stripes” (which are really bar glitters), holographic silver bars, and tiny red and white glitter.  I wanted something subtle, so I layered one coat of Election Day over OPI Don’t Pretzel my Buttons.  Love how it turned out!

And here’s a shot of my never-before-seen right thumb, so you can see one of the two stars I managed to get out of the bottle (the other’s on my left index finger, but it’s kind of hard to see).

This is the second time I will be voting for President, and I really love being able to participate in the government.  If you’re eligible to vote in the US, GO VOTE!

Think your vote doesn’t count?  It does.  Hitler was elected as head of the Nazi Party by one vote.  Idaho, Oregon, California, Texas and Washington became states because of one vote (each).   Because of one vote, the official language of the US is English, not German.  JFK won the election by one vote per precinct in just 10 precincts.  One vote saved Andrew Johnson from impeachment.  Andrew Jackson was elected by one vote.  Thomas Jefferson was elected over Aaron Burr by just one vote.  In 1876, Rutherford B. Hayes became the 3rd president to be elected by one vote.  And one vote gave women the right to vote.

So after you finish looking at this awesome nail polish, go help decide who will be the next President of the United States.  If only because it gives you license to complain later 🙂
