Did you notice that Executive Producer Selena Gomez was rocking blue nail polish at the premiere of the Netflix show? She chose the colour as a tribute to main character Hannah Baker. As you probably know, Hannah uses the polish to label the tapes before sending them out to the people she blames for her suicide.
Now, fans who were touched by 13 Reason Why are joining Sel and honouring Hannah by painting their own nails blue. Pics are popping up all over Insta with hashtags like #HannahBaker, #13ReasonsWhy, and #Bluefor13RW to raise awareness about the show and it's important message.

"I am wearing blue nail polish for Hannah Baker, but not just for the fictional Hannah Baker; for all the Hannah Bakers out there. This show has gotten people talking. I keep going on about this show but it's because I relate to this character, I have been in her position. People are relating to this character. People who have been bullied, isolated, raped, sexually assaulted, depressed, suicidal and anxious; people who have felt alone. I am Hannah Baker and I am a surviver!! Talk to me if you ever need to, or talk to someone you can trust, I am here for you. Also kudos to my fellow Aussie Katherine Langford, you have truly started something special ❤️ ;;;; #HannahBaker #13ReasonsWhy #ThirteenReasonsWhy #Bluefor13RW #depression #suicide #anxiety #borderlinepersonality #sexualassualt #bullying #isolation @13reasonswhy @dylan_minnette @katherinelangford"
