Pink Wednesday!! O.P.I Pink of Hearts Set for 2012

Happy Humpday!! 

  Today I am finally showing you guys the adorable set that O.P.I released this month for Breast Cancer Awareness 2012, Pink of Hearts 2012. This BCA tag team includes a new glitter by O.P.I and an O.P.I classic that pair up perfectly to create one fierce Breast Cancer Awareness manicure. O.P.I has donated over 25,000 to the Susan G. Komen foundation in connection with the Pink of Hearts program.  It is always great to see a brand be connected with the issues, and do their part to help out.

O.P.I You Glitter Be Good to Me over O.P.I I Think in Pink
 You Glitter be Good to Me is a brand new glitter by O.P.I created for this Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. I was not expecting to love it as much as I do. You Glitter be Good to Me is made up of small Piggy Pink glitters with Magenta hex glitter accents. I'm fairly sure that this glitterbomb could be worn alone but I love how it looks layered, as you can see the textures of the glitter better this way. YGBGTM is very easy to work with. I had no issues getting a nice spread of glitter and an even balance of hexes on the nail. Bottom line? I LOVE this combination. These Two polishes were made for each other!

O.P.I I Think in Pink
 I Think in Pink is an O.P.I classic. This soft, squishy Pink is a dream come tru for me. I am a sucker for "Breast Cancer Pink". You guys know what I mean right? It is such a distinct shade of Pink. Anywho, this is a warm, light Bubblegum Pink "crelly" (as dubbed by Jen). The perfect middle ground between a creme and a jelly. The formula on this color does require a light hand to avoid streaks and bald patches. It is not a troublesome formula, not sticky, not thin, not thick, it actually flows nicely, just takes a patient hand. I used Three thin coats for the swatch you see above. This shade was also a big surprise and a hit for me because I am a sucker for anything slightly jelly and I have no other Pink like this one.

 And because I have a problem... Every polish that is even remotely jelly-like in nature gets the sammich treatment from me.. So naturally, after I did my layering I just had to see if ITIP was "thin" enough to do a sammich with... Surprise! It is, maybe a little too dense for the technique but it still created such a cute effect! So this is a base of I think in Pink with a coat of You Glitter be Good to me followed by one more THIN coat of I think in Pink.
   I am so glad to have these pretties as a part of my BCA arsenal, which grows every year. Let's save the TaTa's girls!! I will always be happy to see O.P.I, an the many other beauty brands that take part in BCA, do so every October. Cosmetics with a purpose are always welcome, and embraced, in the LTHP household!

What are your thoughts on this adorable set?

  11. I'm not a huge fan of light pink or of the color of the small glitter, but I like it as a sandwich.

    I've got a breast cancer awareness polish on today as well, but an indie (Pink Of Me by Oopsie Daisies). It's like an automatic jelly sandwich.

  12. I'm wearing this right now too! As I was doing mine, I thought it might make a good sammich, but went with 3 coats I Think In Pink with 2 thin coats of You Glitter Be Good To Me on top. I left the glitter off my ring finger and used a darker pink to paint an awareness ribbon. Love it!

  14. Lost my TaTa's in 1995. So this and every Oct and ever pink Wed (for those who still do that) are really meaningful to me. I am a 2x survivor now with the last interception being now 5 yrs out. It's so important to do self checks always, always. I had first time round, a clean mamo only 2 months before I found something. Treatments are much better now than they were 'then' and getting better all the time - but early detection is where it's at. Love your sammich with this one - had not thought to even try it with this pretty duo..going to do that tomorrow!
