Rosewater by ILNP: a beautiful holo polish with a pink shimmer 💖 This picture doesn’t do it justice! 

ok, repeat after me

I, [insert name here]

Will support Dan Howell,

No matter what he wears

(actually no, cause if he wears a swastika or some shit, that’s fucked up and i will not support him. but he isn’t the person like that, he’s a good person and would never do that)

If he wears nail polish,

Or doesn’t.

I will always remember that it is HIS body

And it is thereby 

HIS choice. 

He gets to decide how he looks.

I will love and support my boi regardless.

If he is breaking the societal standards of 

what is “masculine” 

or what is“feminine”

Or he is not.

I am still gonna support my boi.


I love that Dan wore nail polish today.

It makes me so happy that he is becoming more confident with himself, 

But if tomorrow,

He takes of the nail polish,

And dresses in a way society perceives as “masculine”,

I will still love and support him.

Because it is his body.

Because it is his choice.

A smart man once said,

“Gender roles are the worst kind of bread”

I already know Dan thinks gender roles are dumb.

At the end of the day,

I can’t dictate what someone else should or shouldn’t wear.

Saying,

“Because Dan is a man, he should wear nail polish, pink, and dresses, as that subverts gender roles”  

Isn’t much better than saying,

“Because Dan is a man, he shouldn’t wear nail polish, pink, and dresses”

In both circumstances,

You are putting the (perceived) gender, before the person. 

Someone’s gender identity shouldn’t dictate how they present themselves.


You shouldn’t encourage Dan to wear nail polish, 
Just because he has identified himself as a man
You should encourage Dan to wear nail polish, 
If that’s what he wants to.


just to be clear, i have no issue with dan wearing nail polish.

but i think we should remember, someone shouldn’t break a gender roles, just because it means that breaking a gender role. People should break gender roles, because they want to.

Imposing the idea that men should wear nail polish, carries the same ideology of saying they shouldn’t

Someone shouldn’t do something because of their gender. They should do it if they want to

For you: do you have a favorite color of nail polish and/or favorite brand of nail polish?

thank you @bearlytolerable <3. I am always happy to talk polish. 

I love ILNP nail polish, a boutique brand. My favorite colors are green or purple

(Match up without mystic messenger.) Hi Im a tall girl who loves to sing! I also enjoy videogames, anime and learning new things. I love flower crowns but I also love black nail polish. Kind of weird? I also love listening to my friends and helping them get through their problems. Thank you for the oppurtunity!

I SHIP YOU WITH RED!

He adores every little thing about you! Your kind heart and selfless ways would be enough reasons for him to admire you and see you not as the girl of the story whose role is to be saved and protected but as a full-on hero, always willing to help those in need. Hell, he’d even team up with you to bring a smile on the ones surrounding you. On top of that, you both share an interest in video games and anime, and your evenings would consist of endless marathons and non-stop gaming (I can definitely see Lance nagging you two for staying late playing and making noise). Overall he pretty much thinks you’re unique and stand out from the crowd which makes you even more lovable in his opinion. Bonus: He’d let you paint his nails black and put a flower crown on his head and it would be great because you two would have matching(ish) outfits?? And that’s the coolest thing ever??

1975 – what is the first happy memory that comes to mind, recent or otherwise?

ooookay of course my brain had to make this gay and jump to my last skype call with ilja on friday where she was supposed to be asleep and couldn’t talk! so we just kind of sat there and typed back and forth to each other and just smiled and had a gay old time. oh god i’m in Love

black nail polish – do you have a bucket list? if so, what are the top three things?

– meet/hug/kiss my gf
– punch a nazi
– own a coffee shop maybe?

these are all very…different but they’re all things i’d like to do!
