Happy Founders Day Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc

Happy Monday everyone. Today is a special day. My sorority, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., celebrates 90 years of excellence and service. And while I wanted to go with a cutesy blue and gold design, I reflected on what founders day really means to me.

I can not lie, every November 12th for the past 13yrs, I've cried. To think of how 7 young, black, female, educators in 1922 founded a black sorority on a predominantly white campus (the only historically black sorority to do so) gets me emotional. Their strength, their tenacity, their perseverance it's everything I am, its everything a Sigma woman is! This mani is dedicated to those 7 ladies for breaking chains and bringing down barriers!!!!

The blue is Essie's Mesmerized and the gold is Chanel's Delicate 
The chain links are free handed with a polish pen
