Review & Swatches - OPI Pink of Hearts 2012

Hey guys!

Thank you all once again for the birthday wishes on Friday! I had an awesome day and your comments made it that much more special. :)

I have the OPI Pink of Hearts 2012 Breast Cancer Awareness Duo to show you today! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and OPI is once again doing their part by releasing a duo of awareness-raising polishes.

"This duo pack is designed to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research and support. In 2012, OPI will donate $25,000 in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. OPI will also donate $5,000 to Rethink Breast Cancer in Canada."

Let's take a look!

I Think In Pink is OPI's signature Breast Cancer Awareness shade and it's a soft light pink creme. It's on the sheer side, so it takes three coats to build it up, and even then it's not 100% opaque. I think this would work best used as a sheer colour, perhaps for classic french manicures. The formula was great, and it didn't feel thick even after three coats.

You Glitter Be Good To Me is a clear base with small coppery pink glitters as well as some larger deep pink hex glitters. This can be used as a glitter topper, but it can also be built up on its own with 3 coats. I've shown it both ways below (the first pic is over I Think In Pink, the second pic is YGBGTM on its own).

Personally, I prefer it as a topper, just because I felt that after adding top coat, it was just too thick of a manicure on its own. The formula was really easy to work with and I didn't have to fish any of the larger pink glitters out of the bottle.

The OPI Pink of Hearts 2012 Breast Cancer Awareness Duo is available now at beauty supply stores and in professional salons.


  1. I like that glitter. I'm like crazy for glitter these days. :)

  2. Wow....all of them look amazing.... :D

  3. Wow! The glitter is gorgeous!! It looks stunning on its own!

  4. I love the idea of polishes for breast cancer awareness, but I have to give these a miss. The pink is too sheer to me and the glitter is too golden. But hey, it looks great on you! :)

  5. I don't like those larger pink glitters - I wish they were all the same size. I didn't like the Muppet Glitters for the exact reason :(

  6. Very beautiful... This my pleasure to get information here about...!
