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