October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There are many cosmetics and skin-care companies joining the Pink October events in support of breast cancer awareness and research. Essie and OPI also have created special limited editions of soft-pink nail lacquers. I always love to have my manicure done to show the pretty pink and to support the power of pink.
The Pink Is Powerful ($7) from Essie is a pale pink with slightly shimmer. 10% of its sales profits will be donated to the Entertainment Industry Foundation's Women's Cancer Research Fund during the month of October.
OPI has its pink version with Pink of Hearts Nail Lacquer ($7.50). This is a light pink color, which has been created exclusively to raise fund for Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation.
