Essie Yes We Can, Pink! Nail Polish


Object Of Desire

Essie Yes, We Can Pink! Nail Polish, $8, at

Reason #1

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Essie has released the ballet slipper pink color. A portion of the proceeds will go to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a non-profit organization devoted to empowering women who are affected by the disease.

Reason #2

Amidst all the overpowering neons and intimidating blacks that everyone is wearing lately, why not shock them with pink? It’s a whisper of color, and extremely delicate against your blackest of outfits.

Reason #3

The only pink I accept is on my BlackBerry or my nails, so this is a subtle way to be feminine but not in a way that shouts Barbie. Unless that’s your thing, of course.
