Sephora by OPI Nail Polish Casting Call: Honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month (Fall/Autumn 2013)

Hey y'all! 

Looking for a dusty pink-mauve nail color? I would like to recommend a beautiful and an affordable option for y'all today - Sephora by OPI's Casting Call

On sale, woohoo!!! Since the middle of Summer, Sephora has marked down its Sephora by OPI nail colors by 50%. If you buy one nail polish, it will cost $4.50 (originally $9). Also, if you buy three, you can save about 50 cents per nail polish, and purchase three for $12. I picked up quite a few colors, but I made the mistake of buying them on separate days, mainly because the shades I liked were at two different Sephora stores, so I wanted to point out to you all that you can save a little bit by getting a few together. 

A warm 'n' cozy color!!! Personally, I don't associate pink with Fall/Autumn. I don't even associate it with Summer. I like to implement pink in my wardrobe during the Spring because I associate pink with the fresh bloom of blossoms, tulips, and colorful gardens in the Spring. However, there are many muted creamy pink nail colors with brown, taupe, or mauve undertones that are perfect for time of the year, when you just want to feel warm and cozy. What do I really like about Casting Call that makes it very unique from other muted creamy pinks might you ask? I like that although it is a deep and dusty shade, it is not dull or muddy. You know those colors that add a gray stark cast to your hands? Or those colors you see and think, oh this looks too "mature"? Well, this shade is quite the contrary. The pink is very prominent, especially in light. Rosy, taupe, or purplish mauves are popular shades for the Fall/Autumn, so why not try a dusty pink-mauve?

Easy peasy application, yes!!! I used two coats in the pictures below. Some of you may only need one coat. This is a fully opaque, creamy, non-streaky nail color. Sadly, I cannot say this for some of the other colors by this brand, such as, surprisingly, the popular Metro Chic

Help a Cause!!! Narrow minded of me, perhaps, but I also associate pink with being a young girl - innocent, playful, delicate, sensitive, light-hearted. Pink reminds me of little newborn baby girls in frills and bows with pinched pink cheeks. Pink reminds me of Disney Princesses. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. In honor of this month, businesses, charities, and non-profit organizations as well as individuals organize fundraisers and bring about awareness to the public. When I began blogging, one of my goals was and still is to help raise awareness for charitable causes through my blog. I hope to accomplish that one day in the future. For now, I wanted to post up a "pink" themed manicure ideal for this season as well as in honor of all of the special women across the world.
