October is Breast Cancer Month!

This is OPI's 7th annual , limited edition, breast cancer promotion.  Can you believe it has been 7 years?  :)

OPI "Pink of Hearts" 2013 Breast Cancer Collection.  This pack is designed to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research and support.

"Pink-ing of You"
3 coats, no top coat

This is a classic pink creme, from their regular core line.  I'm not a "pink fan", so this shade is new to me :)  It went on well in two coats, but I had some bald spots so I had to do three coats.  Went on smoothly in the usual OPI way, no big issues. This is a very "easy pink" that can be worn by a variety of skin tones, it's universal! :)

I decided to top this manicure with the accompanying glitter polish "More Than A Glimmer" in a ruffian style, using the crystal included in the pack.

"More Than A Glimmer"
2 coats over "Pink-ing of You"


LOL!  This pattern definitely makes my nails look shorter. They look like ice cream cones, LOL!  

"More Than A Glimmer" is a pastel multi-colored matte glitter polish, in a very sheer pink base. I know the glitter is supposed to be worn on it's own, without top coat, but I think I would prefer top coat on this one.   The glitter was a bit thick on the second coat, but it wasn't hard to work with, plus you get so much glitter per layer, it's worth it :) GLITTER LOVE!

I LOVE the Pink of Hearts sets each year! I haven't tried this year's glitter yet but plan on doing a mani with it this weekend. Love your swatches!
