With images such as these all over the internet, it is hard not to want to do something, anything to help the town folk of Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada.
The town in northern Alberta, Canada is up against dangerous temperatures and bone dry weather with low humidity making for expolovise conditions.
Smoke fills the air as cars line up on a road in Fort McMurray, Alberta on Tuesday May 3, 2016 in this image provide by radio station CAOS91.1. At least half of the city of Fort McMurray in northern Alberta was under an evacuation notice Tuesday as a wildfire whipped by winds engulfed homes and sent ash raining down on residents.

People are literally taking everything of importance and leaving the city by car, bus and other recreational vehicles. Mandatory evacuation of the towns 60,000 people is in effect.
This young lady was making sure her horses were safe as well.
Homes as well as business were destroyed as residents were told to evacuate their property.
One bright spot in this disaster comes from nail tech/organizer of The Canadian Nail Tech Connection, Dayna White. The CNTC is a association for Canadian nail techs to expand their professional horizons through networking and learning at their organized events in Canada.

Dayna heard the troubles and simply put it out there that if any other nail techs had gently used or unwanted nail supplies (good working condition) that may help these Albertan nail tech’s get re-established if needed, then they could have it sent.
Further she let nail techs who may have been effected know to simply let her know what their needs might be and she would help with what ever supplies came in.
A shout out to Canada Nail Supply for this post as well.

For the final day of the 12 Days of Christmas challenge, they gave us Free Style. This worked out perfectly because I finally decided on what to do with my nails for the season.
I love the look of white nails at the holiday season but I also believe that metallics are the way to go for this time of year. (see my article in DLXVRSN Magazine winter edition. Page 89)
And as you can see, I incorporated all the things I love into my nails for Christmas!!!!
Check out the other artists that are participating!
