Limited-Edition Nail Polish Shows Support For Newtown School Shooting Victims



NEWTOWN, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — Sandy Hook Promise, a non-profit organization founded following the Newtown school shootings, has created a limited-edition nail polish to show support for the victims.

OPI manufactured the polish called “Sandy Hook Green” and donated 10,000 bottles to the organization.

The polish is not for sale, but will be given out this weekend to people who donate $10 to Sandy Hook Promise during a Salon-a-Thon event at Ricci’s Salon and Spa in Newtown on Sunday.

Two mothers whose children survived the attack came up with the idea after each had their nails painted green at a local salon as a way to cope with their grief.

On Dec. 14, gunman Adam Lanza, who had killed his mother at their Newtown home, went to Sandy Hook Elementary School and opened fire with an assault rifle, killing 20 children and six educators. He killed himself as police arrived at the school.

After the shootings, many wore ribbons made up of the school’s colors, green and white, to show support for the victims. Green has now also become a symbol for the gun control movement.
