Hello Lovely Ladies,
Today I would like to show you swatches of the two shades in OPI’s seventh annual Breast Cancer Pink of Hearts 2013 polish-duo release:
More Than a Glimmer
Pink-ing of You
The OPI Pink of Hearts 2013 duo includes:
* One full size bottle of More than a Glimmer
* One full size bottle of Pink-ing of You
* Pink Ribbon & Crystal Decals
I have to contain my excitement for the glitter polish in this duo…*inhale, exhale*
More than a Glimmer IS the ULTIMATE matte-glitter-sandwich in a bottle! That pretty much sums it up. The base is MATTE sheer (slightly pink tone) and the glitter varies in size and color (with pastel rainbow bits). Honestly, this polish floored me when I applied it (I will shamefully admit that I missed the fact that this would be a matte finish, and I swear when this polish was drying my eyes bulged out all cartoon-like).
More than a Glimmer is light and airy, so so soft and flattering. AND MATTE!
Something tells me that this is the exact color of the pillows that Angels sleep on
Plus, the name of this LIMITED EDITION shade, instills more than a glimmer of hope in all of us that one day Breast Cancer will stop claiming so many lives.
(two coats… even after one coat it looked so lovely!)
Pink-ing of You is a soft pink cream polish. A while back OPI had a lighter version of Pink-ing of You out… this one is definitely more opaque and more “pink” rather than milky.
(great coverage for two coats)
I wanted to try out the decals as well (how great to have this special nail-art treat included in the set).
I pulled the thin decals off of the paper backing with tweezers and placed them onto the nail. I applied topcoat over the entire nail.
May I just say I love love love the glistening delicate gemstones from this set! They lay fairly flat and are so shiny and dainty.

Pink of Hearts 2013 will be available September and October 2013 at professional salons and spas across Canada, for $19.95 CAN suggested retail per set.
There is a lot of pretty in this OPI set (and all for a great cause)! I think that More than a Glimmer is a must have for any OPI enthusiast. I still can’t believe how pretty this polish is… and how, with two coats, you get such a lovely matte glitter sandwich. *can you hear the quickening pitter-patter of my heart?*
Side Note: at firs I thought that More than a Glimmer would be a dupe for China Glaze It’s a Trap-Eze… but it is NOT. The CG shade is far more opaqu and the base is white-blue on that one. Needless to say, OPI blows the CG shade out of the water IMO- softer, matte, and more universally wearable.
What do YOU think of this duo?
THANK YOU FOR READING!
