Limited Edition Nail Polish Created To Support Sandy Hook Victims

OPI creates a limited edition nail polish in support of Sandy Hook

Sometimes beauty can seem frivolous, but it can also help bring some levity during times of grief.

A limited-edition green nail polish called "Sandy Hook Green" has been created by Sandy Hook Promise, a non-profit organization founded after the school shootings in Newtown, and manufactured by OPI.

The polish is not for sale, and OPI will not profit from it, but it will be given out to anybody who donates $10 or more at a Salon-a-Thon event being held at Ricci’s Salon and Spa in Newtown this coming Sunday.

Two Newtown moms whose children survived the Sandy Hook shooting came up with the idea to create the nail polish while getting their nails painted green after the tragedy as a method of dealing with their pain.

Green is symbolic because it is one of the two school colors at Sandy Hook Elementary, and has recently become associated with the gun control movement.

It may seem like such a small thing, but sometimes it's really the little things that help people heal.

    bull shiz! this is called "crossed marketing"! probably just some company trying to turbo their sales using the sandy hook event, just like the "pink products", where they use the breast cancer tragedy in order to sell teddy bears, 5 hour energy, mustang, and hundreds of other products. beware America, the suffering and death of our brothers and sisters mean a lot of money for the shark businesses who run the country and if you think they won't profit on death, think again.

    Re: Alexima – It reminded me of the 'pink products' as well. I will stay away from this.

    Seriously? SERIOUSLY?! What a big, green load of HORSE MANURE (green even). How about people just donate their ten bucks directly to the survivors of the incident? This is as bad as the "pre buy Coffee for the homeless" scams being run by small coffee shops in Washington state. I will Clip my nails in solidarity for sandy you vain, vapid pieces of seagull excrement!

    I am from Newtown and I was in the Newtown school systen. I think that any little bit anyone does to venerate the memory of these children is a positive act.

    The product was donated at no cost. It's basically a nice incentive for people who are looking to donate. The company is not making any money and did not charge any money for the product.
