Lacquered in Orange – orange nails for Multiple Sclerosis Awareness

This post is all about Multiple Sclerosis Awareness. MS week is March 11-17. I thought it would be a great idea to arrange an event that involves orange manicures for MS Awareness. Read all about it below and please join! 😀

Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease.

I was diagnosed with MS myself a year ago. I’ve learned a lot the last year and I am sure that I will not let this ruin my life! Because what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger 😉

Lacquered in Orange” -guidelines-:

  • Orange is generally associated with MSA (with an orange ribbon). As such, I would be delighted if you show me, and everyone else, your  orange manicure(s) in a ‘MSA’ blog post(s).
  • This event starts today and ends by the end of this month.
  • There are no ‘rules’! If you like to include nail art or not is of course entirely up to you.
  • My sweet brother in law created the ‘logo‘ above. Please add it to your blog post(s). Also, feel free to use it on (the sidebar of) your blog or any social media.
  • Please add your work(s) of art to the Inlinkz Collection below so that everyone can admire it/them.
  • It would be nice if you (hash)tag your orange manicure(s) with #MSA and #LacqueredInOrange, so that everyone can admire your work(s) of art!
  • More important: spread the word! 😀

Last by not least:
My dear friend Louise that you might know from her blog: Mommy Loves Nail Polish and her Etsy Shop: Love Nailz, is joining the MS walk this year with her family. A big shoutout to you Louise! Love ya girl!
The MS Walk is a community event that brings together people touched by Multiple Sclerosis. At the MS Walk, people affected by MS connect with others who understand the daily realities of their disease. Every year over 65,000 participants in more than 160 communities across Canada gather at the MS Walk to engage with each other and raise vital funds for people living with MS.

  1. Ik zie nu deze post pas. Hallo mede MS Warrior! Ik heb ook vorig jaar de diagnose gehad, dikke vette pech dus. Ik loop hard, ben moeder (daarvoor moet ik ook vaak rennen haha, snelle peuter) en baal enorm dat die MS me soms afremt in wat ik wil doen. Maar zo lang ik kan steek ik twee perfect gelakte middelvingers op naar de MS, want je kent de quote “MS is nog for the weak”.
    Veel sterkte tijdens je dieptepunten en geniet dubbel van alle hoogtepunten! Liefs, Inge

  2. Everyone loves your blog.. good colors & theme. Did you design this excellent website yourself or did you rely on someone else to acheive it to suit your needs? Plz reply that i’m aiming to design my very own blog and would choose to know where u got this from.

  6. Reblogged this on Beauty expression by Luchessa and commented:
    Hey Beauties,
    Multiple sclerosis (MS) awareness is a pretty important & serious reason to spread the word about it and to show support by creating your orange manicures and maybe even wear an orange ribbon.
    Participate & link up using #LacqueredInOrange and #MSA hash tags.
    Thank you!

  7. Great cause! And if my nails weren’t such a mess I would be painting my nails orange! I’ll go share this though, on facebook! (the ms walk we are participating in, is on Sunday, May 26 – you can donate to the cause here: http://mssoc.convio.net/site/TR/Walk/OntarioDivision?px=1437315&pg=personal&fr_id=1953&s_locale=en_CA ……. or, I will be selling some polishes that Sabrina and I collaborated on, and 100% of the sales going to to the MS fundraising – I’m sure Sabrina will keep you up to date!)
