OPI Catch Me in Your Net - Blue for Autism Awareness

Hello everyone.

Here I sport blue polish in order to support Autism Awareness Day.

This is OPI Catch Me In Your Net, part of a limited edition Summer Flutter collection from 2010. This is a great nail polish. A well known dupe to Zoya Charla.  It is a fine addition to a polish collection.  I remember gazing at it in wonder the first time I applied it, this one is so so sparkly! This is three coats with no topcoat.

Autism is a mysterious disorder with no known cure, in which the sufferer has difficulty in communicating and interacting with others, and exhibits repetitive behavior. It begins to become evident at around age 2.

It is becoming more common in the United States, with 11.3 of 1000 children identified with an Autism Spectrum Disorder in the United States in 2012 according to the Center For Disease Control. 

More boys than girls are diagnosed with Autism 1 in 54 vs 1 in 252 according to the CDC website.

My hope is that one day we will find a way to prevent and cure Autism, so no more children and their families have to suffer the effects of this disorder.
