Perfectly Polished Tips 77 - Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As most of you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Many cosmetic companies offer products in which part or all of the profit from the product goes to research for breast cancer. I think it's a great way to help those in need. The offical color is pink, I have been sporting a pink manicure this week, CND Paris In Pink. I won't be posting pictures though because it didn't dry in time for bed and is full of sheet marks. I've been too lazy to change though. So here are a few of the nail polish companies that are supporting the cause this year.

OPI Pink of Hearts 2 (last year's was Pink of Hearts). OPI created this polish to help support Susan G. Komen for the Cure. OPI also plans on donating $25,000 to the foundation this year. I believe Siobhan over at the Nailphile posted pictures of this color.

China Glaze has released this three pack of pinks with part of the proceeds going to research. The colors are Rich & Famous, St. Tropez, and Temptation Carnation.

This year Essie has released Pink is the Link, there is also a Pink is the Link gift set which includes a mini pink nail file and a mini bottle of Essie's Sensitivity base coat. 10% of sales from both products will be donated to Living Beyond Breast Cancer


Color Club's mini Colors for the Cure include four of the companies best selling pinks; Translucent, Bashful, Angels N’ Pink, and In Bloom. All of the proceeds will go to a local breast cancer chapter that is located in New York. Stephanie over at the Polish Addict swatched these a few days ago.

Companies like Nubar and Jessica are doing promotions as well for BCA month. You can check the nail polish ones as well as others out at NailsMag.com. The links at the end of the descriptions don't seem to be working, there is a lot of information already there though.

OMG all the peeeeenks!! I need them! How different would you say the two versions of Pink of Hearts are? I will buy the 2nd on anyway to support the cause, but am curious. Thanks

I have the first one and if I remember correctly it's pretty sheer. POH2 is suppose to be opaque. Siobhan at the nailphile posted a picture of it. maybe she could do a comparison for you. :)

I am excited to get the ChG ones but disappointed that OPI did not change their color that much.

lo - i have reviewing Priti Polish and I loved it. However I don't have as easy access to it as I do other brands. A lot of polish companies have removed the most harmful chemicals from their polishes though.
