Today I have some really pretty polishes with a great message behind them, and that’s the OPI Pink of Hearts 2014 Set*, which comes with two polishes, available for sale during September and October in support of Breast Cancer Awareness. This is the 8th year releasing a duo, and OPI is donating $25,000 to Susan G. Komen Month as well as $5,000 to Rethink Breast Cancer in Canada. It seems the donations are not directly linked to purchasing the polishes, but the polishes are released to help raise awareness. The OPI Pink of Hearts 2014 set comes with the shades OPI Mod About You, as well as the new shade OPI The Power of Pink and a pink glitter nail file with a pink ribbon charm. In addition to OPI’s donations, the polishes themselves in the OPI Pink of Hearts 2014 set have a special pink ribbon wrap on the bottle lid to help support breast cancer awareness.
OPI Pink of Hearts 2014 includes a perfect pink cream as well as a glitter that can be worn on top or solo. OPI Mod About You is a pastel pink shade of the cotton candy variety, and I’ve actually tried a few polishes similar to this shade lately and the formula honestly has not been very good. However, I actually love OPI Mod About You and this will definitely be the polish I keep of the dupes, because its creamy and opaque and has a great even finish with two coats although it somehow makes my hands look more tan than they are (in person as well as in photos).
Of course the standout of the OPI Pink of Hearts 2014 Duo is the glitter-jelly shade, OPI The Power of Pink. I’m wearing one coat of it over OPI Mod About You, except on my ring finger which is just two coats of it own its own. It was surprisingly opaque without a base and actually works well on its own as well as a topper. It is a bit thicker in consistency and takes a little longer to dry. I love that it works both ways but I think I prefer it as a topper, the combination of the two colours in the OPI Pink of Hearts 2014 Duo is just so pretty!
Have you tried any of the OPI Pink of Hearts sets?
