SinfulColors No Text Red: PAINT FOR A CAUSE
Last summer, thanks to the participation of several bloggers and nail enthusiasts, we hosted a #RedThumb2Stop event in an effort to join the Red Thumb Movement, a safety campaign aimed at ending distracted driving caused by texting and cell phone use.
Anyone here old enough to remember mom or dad, or grandma or grandpa telling us to tie a ribbon or a thread to our fingers in order to remember something??
The red thumb works the same way. Paint your thumb red for it to serve as a stop sign so when you pick up your phone, it reminds you to put it down, to stay alert-to just drive.
As opposed to limiting this event to an online pledge, I am working in connection with some local agencies to bring this event to life and have others (not just the online community) to take this pledge and I am AGAIN inviting you to join us again to take this pledge and invite others, it might just save a life!
To my delight, I found that SinfulColors has also joined in the movement and released this shade of red called No Text Red (how appropriate). A bright, stop-sign red perfect for the cause.
I decided to combine Blue Sensation and Blackboard from the A Class Act collection to highlight the red. I'm righthanded so I only painted my right thumb and when people ask why is my thumb red, I take that opportunity to invite them to take the pledge with me.
In case you're wondering about the other two pretties, Blackboard is a charcoal shade and Blue Sensation and gorgeous light denim blue with a matte finish. If you're feeling inspired, these two make a great combo for a school night manicure.
