OPI Pink Of Hearts 2012

Today I've got a look at the 2012 OPI Pink of Hearts set which includes I pink I can and You glitter be good to me. This is OPI 6th year releasing a set for Breast Cancer Awareness!  I pink I can is a sheer pink and in the swatches below I really layered on a lot of layers. It took me four coats to get it super opaque. A little further down you will see where I did a Glitter Sandwich with both of these colors and for that I did two coats, 1 coat glitter and then 1 final coat of I pink I can to finish off the sandwich and it turned out dreamy!  My camera had a hard time capturing the pink in real life it is slightly darker. For not being a big pink fan I really enjoyed this color.

You Glitter be good to me only took two coats to get it opaque and I layered it over I pink I Can. A lot of glitter comes on the brush that you have to be very slow and gentle if you just want to do a light coat similar to what I did for the glitter sandwich. I admit that in the bottle the glitter does not impress me much but once on the nail it really wowed me. It's so glamours and has this crazy mega sparkle shine to it. It's borderline blinding! The glitter is a mix of small light pink glitters with bigger fuchsia hex pieces. It's really a nice combo. Overall I love this set and the main reason is because it's so versatile. You can create several looks and they play really nicely together.

Pink of Hearts 2012 will be available September and October 2012 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $14.95 ($20.95 CAN) suggested retail

  2. These are really pretty!

    Do you know if or the proceeds from this polish duo go to the Komen foundation? Or is it just OPI doing a duo for Breast Cancer awareness?

    1. From my understanding this set is just for awareness. In the PR doc for this it did state that OPI will donate $25,000 in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. They will also donate $5,000 to Rethink Breast Cancer in Canada. So regardless of the sales OPI has already committed themselves to a donation. Glad they are making a difference!

    1. The first thing I thought when I started swatching the sheer pink was I gotta do a jelly, I gotta do a jelly! hah I'm glad i wasn't the only one thinking that! You'll love this set! Thanks for the nail love, This is by far my favorite nail shape i've ever had, It's so funky and makes me feel all hip, hah even though i might be the only one sporting it. It's just so different and it really makes my fingers seem super thin and long!
