Autism Awareness Swirls nails

I think a lot of people believe there is only an autism awareness day, but there is actually a whole month dedicated to autism awareness. Yep, you guessed it- that month is this month!
I know that the autism symbol is a puzzle piece, but these nails were inspired by the traditional colors of autism (dark blue, light blue, yellow, and red) and this bracelet.
I love that none of them are uniform! They are also really simple! I painted a thick coat of yellow on my nail and added a drop of each color, took a toothpick and swirled it all around.
With only one day of wearing this design, I’ve received a lot of compliments! Every time someone commented on them, I had to hurry up and push my sleeve up so they could see my matching bracelet. I also wanted them to know the reason for this design.
I used:
  • Blue Me Away! – Sally Hansen
  • Red Red – Wet n Wild
  • French Kiss – Pure Ice
  • Mellow Yellow – Sally Hansen


  1. The bracelet is beautiful and your nails compliment it perfectly!
    I think this is a great idea to promote awareness for any cause.

    1. Thank you so much! I hope to do more awareness nails in the future :)
