OPI Pink of Hearts 2012 Breast Cancer Awareness Duo | Review + Swatches

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and to show their support OPI has released their sixth annual Pink of Hearts promotion. It includes a duo pack which features the classic pale pink shade I Think in Pink and the new sparkle-packed hue You Glitter Be Good to Me. The promotion is designed to raise funds in support of breast cancer research. OPI also plans to donate $25,000 in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month  to Susan G. Komen for the Cure and will also donate $5,000 to Rethink Breast Cancer in Canada.

paired with I Think in Pink

Glow: Let me just start by saying that I always look forward to the Pink of Hearts promotions because they hold a soft spot in my heart. My grandmother is a breast cancer survior and I appreciate brands who show their continued support for the cause. As far as the polishes I absolutely love the soft hue of I Think in Pink, it's sort of a sheer creme and it's super shiny! I didn't use a top coat for these swatches. I also like the pairing of You Glitter Be Good to Me with this duo. It's a micro glitter which has a mix of large glitter as well. It has shades of pink, purple and gold. I think it looks nice paired on top of I Think in Pink!

Glare: None! although it's sheer, surprisingly I Think in Pink only took 2 coats to get the shade completely opaque. I'm not a huge fan of sheer polishes but this one works out nicely. 

Would I Recommend It? If not for the polishes definitely for the cause! 

Where To Buy: The limited edition duo is currently available at select retailers nationwide. To purchase, find a location near you, or to learn more please visit www.opi.com.
