For our fifth and final Go Pink Wednesday, I bring you a very special guest blogger! My sister, Ms. Nearly-Obsessed! Hope you enjoy this post!
For this final Go Pink Wednesday, I could not decide which pink to feature from the Selena Gomez for Nicole by OPI Collection…
So first a little background on how we got our painted paws on this very pretty, unreleased collection:
A few weeks ago, The Obsessed was invited to an exclusive bloggers dinner in Toronto with the one and only Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI’s Creative Director! The dinner was held at Ciao, an upscale restaurant located in Toronto’s posh Yorkville district.
I was fortunate enough to be able to tag along and thoroughly enjoyed the intimate setting where approximately a dozen or so local bloggers chatted with Suzi.
Here we are with Suzi! (I’m on the right)
At the end of our wonderful evening, we were presented with gift bags that were filled with all 14 nail lacquers from the upcoming Selena Gomez Collection!!
While we have yet to swatch and wear every single polish, I was excited to use the two pinks from this collection for this final breast cancer awareness post. I simply loved the combination of the soft and darker pink together, and what better way to end Go Pink Wednesday than to bring you not one but TWO gorgeous pinks!
The deeper pink is called Spring Break – a very appropriate name. It is fresh, fun and screams Spring without being too loud or office-inappropriate. This polish applies like a dream and is perfectly thick, without being sticky or streaky.
The softer pink is called Naturally – a more subdued pink hue that I think can be worn year round. The most beautiful thing about Naturally is the subtle tiny macro glitter that leaves the slightest pink and silver shimmer on your nails.
These polishes, along with the entire Selena Gomez for Nicole by OPI Collection, will be available in January 2013.
Did You Know?
Every 2 minutes, there is a new breast cancer diagnosis.
Every 14 minutes, a life is lost to the disease.
Over 40,000 people will die this year; about 400 of them will be men.
85% of all diagnoses have no family history.
1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
Breast cancer is the leading cause of death in women between ages 40 and 55.
Let’s work together to banish this horrific disease that has touched so many of us, either personally or through family and friends.
And remember, early detection provides us with the greatest odds of beating the battle against breast cancer.
A huge THANK YOU to the wonderful Andrea from Finger Painting Fingers for organizing this incredible effort in October. Andrea, you and your mom’s inspirational story are amazing!!!! I have loved participating in this every week, and though I thought that there was no way I could contribute weekly, with the help of some amazing guest-bloggers I have been able to bring you a new pink every week. Hope you enjoyed this as much as us bloggers! xoxo
