OPI Pink Shatter for Breast Cancer Awareness

Just a quick break from the Nice Stems Collection to relay some OPI news. We're still in OPI and in pink, but it's for a good cause. I saw this on one of my favourite blogs, Fashion Polish, check it out.

Une rapide pause dans les Nice Stems, même si l'on reste chez OPI et dans le rose. Cette nouvelle vient du blog Fashion Polish, c'est un de mes blogs préférés, je vous invite à y faire un tour. OPI nous propose de partir à l'assaut du cancer du sein.
Je ne vais pas traduire tout le communiqué, mais comme vous l'aurez compris avec la photo, il s'agit d'un nouveau Shatter en édition limitée, un rose pour lutter contre le cancer du sein, qui est une cause très soutenue aux Etats-Unis et à laquelle le mois d'Octobre est consacré. Tous les ans, plusieurs grands fabricants de vernis sortent des collections roses et OPI ne fait pas exception. Afin de rester dans la tendance 2011, c'est un shatter et les fonds collectés iront à l'association Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Ce vernis ne sera pas disponible hors USA mais comme toujours, on pourra le trouver sur internet.

Here's what it says:

Let’s Shatter Breast Cancer!
