Hi everybody, Today I have nails dedicated to a very good cause and to help raise awareness about the treatment of Rhinos and their declining numbers due to how serious poaching has become.
Did you know that rhinos horns are made of Keratin which is exactly the same protein found in our nails 🙂 Did you also know that in 2014 in South Africa a staggering 1,215 rhinos were killed by poachers…that is 1 every 8 hrs. If poaching continues as it is now we run the risk of Rhinos becoming extinct within the next 11 years, that is shocking.
This campaign is not new and there are a number of high-profile nail artists who have created nails for this great cause in the past years. I am asking you all to get involved and use the hash tag #NailIt4Rhinos to share your Rhino inspired nail art.
You can see the nail art I created below.
If you can also help by donating I am sure that would help this good cause. You can find all the details at the end of this post.
I created a tutorial for this design that I hope you enjoy it and inspires you to get involved.
Thanks for reading, I hope to see your manis tagged to #NailIt4Rhinos xxx
