Let's Shatter Breast Cancer!
OPI launches the limited edition Pink Shatter: Pink of Hearts Nail Lacquer to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure® in its promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever. The 2011 Pink of Hearts edition will follow in the footsteps of its namesake 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 Nail Lacquers in raising awareness of breast cancer for the fifth year in a row, during the months of September and October (National Breast Cancer Awareness Month). Unlike previous shade incarnations, this year’s Pink of Hearts Nail Lacquer marks the debut of fan-favorite Shatter coat in OPI’s first pink shade.
“We are continuing to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure in the hopes of increasing breast cancer awareness, while inspiring and empowering women. The organization’s dedication to this cause is unwavering,” remarks Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “OPI is proud to join with Susan G. Komen for the fifth consecutive year to offer Pink Shatter: Pink of Hearts. By launching our first-ever Pink Shatter coat, we hope this exciting new textured hue will generate lots of awareness for this cause.”
Each bottle of Pink Shatter: Pink of Hearts has a special pink-ribbon tag and pink cap wrap to call attention to breast cancer awareness. OPI will also be making its annual donation of $25,000 to Komen for the Cure. Pink Shatter coat contains no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and it also features OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application.
The limited edition Pink Shatter: Pink of Hearts will be available throughout the months of September and October 2011 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $8.50 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer.

Their new gel smells just like homemade pumpkin pies...which was the inspiration behind the new product. It was developed by California native, Stephie Wilhelm, winner of the global "Originals" competition encouraging consumers to create their very own Limited Edition fragrance.
The 8.4oz bottle is made with organic and natural ingredients, including Community Fair Trade Aloe Vera and Pumpkin seed extract. The Body Shop Limited Edition gel is available now ($5.99) and is available at your local The Body Shop store and online at www.thebodyshop-usa.com.
I arrived at Indigo late morning. It was my first time at the salon and was so excited to see that the salon was built in an old house...I love businesses in houses! They were so warm and welcoming at reception. The cozy feel of wooden flooring and soothing spa scents really puts stress out of mind and allows you to relax. Their waiting room (pictured below) has comfy chairs and pillows, soothing music and magazines. They also gave me a warm neck wrap to wear while I was waiting for my first treatment.
I received my conditioning treatment first. One of Indigo's hair stylists, Sabrina, shampooed my hair and applied Loreal's Power Repair B conditioning treatment. After letting it sit for a few minutes she massaged it into my scalp and then rinsed it out. She did a great job at blow drying and styling my hair, and I was good to go for the wedding I was attending that night!
My experience at Indigo Salon was above expectations. Their facilities and staff were amazing. $50 for the two treatments I received is a great deal, and there are plenty more great deals waiting to be had at SpaWeek.com (and check out the Spa Week app!). It starts next week, so book quickly!
