I don’t think there is a sole out there that hasn’t been touched or effected by cancer in some way. As many of you already know, I lost my best friend of over 18 years to cancer in 2008, after a long 18 year battle with it. I also lost my mother-in-law in 2010 to breast cancer and my aunt is a breast cancer survivor. I now run a charity in honor of my friend in hopes of giving back and spreading hope to those in need, so to say cancer has affected my life is an understatement.
OPI has been a huge supporter of breast cancer for the past 7 years and this year will donate $25,000 to Susan G. Komen and Rethink Breast Cancer, along with another $5,000 to Rethink Breast Cancer in Canada.
This year’s annual Pink of Hearts promotion features the classic sheer pink shade called Pink-ing of You and a new sparkly hue called More than a Glimmer along with 10 pink ribbons and 10 crystal decals to embellish those pretty pink nails. This Pink of Hearts 2013 duo pack is designed to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research and support those in need and women are encouraged to create and customize their own Pink of Hearts manicure as a visible way to honor everyone whose lives have been touched by breast cancer.
Pink-ing of You features a special pink ribbon cap wrap in support of breast cancer awareness and is a medium to full coverage (I applied 3 thin coats to get a truly opaque look), pink crème polish that dries within minutes to a perfect shine. It features OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application.
More than a Glimmer also features a special pink ribbon cap wrap in support of breast cancer awareness and is packed with both micro and macro matte metallic hexagonal shaped glitter in a rainbow of colours like silver, pink, orange, yellow, green, and blue and can be worn alone, without a top coat or layered over Pink-ing of You. Thanks to the milky white polish the glitter is combined with, you can really layer the polish with 2,3 or even 4 coats without the glitter starting to poke out of the top of the nail. It creates the perfect matte glitter finish without the milky colour looking too obvious. I did apply 4 coats to each nail to get the full glitter effect I was looking for. It also features OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application.
OPI Pink of Hearts 2013 is perfect for any girly girl like myself, the matte glitter polish is something totally unique and is almost completely smooth on the nails. The pink is a pretty, soft, Barbie pink that every girl needs in her nail polish collection. OPI Pink of Hearts 2013 will be available September and October 2013 at professional salons and spas across Canada, will retail for $19.95 CAN for the set and 100% of the profits will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
