OPI Pink of Hearts Duo

OPI recently announced its seventh annual Pink of Hearts promotion, a limited edition duo featuring the gorgeous classic OPI shade Pink-ing of You, and the new glitter, More than a Glimmer. The duo also comes with a set of pink ribbon and crystal decals!


When I first received the set, I thought I would end up with a back-up bottle of Pink-ing of You, one of my (many) favourite pink polishes. Boy was I surprised to see this:


It took me a while to find my original Pink-ing of You (on the right, above), never realizing that it was so many shades lighter than the new Pink-ing of You. Needless to say, though they are labeled the same, they are not the same polish colour.

The new Pink-ing of You is still gorgeous, much more vibrant and pink than the original I had in my stash. It applied evenly, needing only two coats for the shiny look below:

Think that was the only surprise I received?

I added a generous coat of More than a Glimmer, the rainbow-hued glitter in a pale pink crelly base…

I was pleasantly surprised – what a fun, gorgeous glitter polish! Never did I expect it to be matte! The pale crelly base slightly softened the undies of Pink-ing of You, and the matte finish was perfectly dreamy. Check out this macro:

Of course I had to see what this combo would look like shiny, so I added some topcoat for the photos below. First one is in the sun:

  1. Oh noes! I was hoping Pinking would be the same as the original, I can’t find it anywhere anymore. I like the old Pinking much better. New shade, new name, right? Anyways, it’s still
    A soooper cute mani. Lucky you!

    1. Forgot to say I actually like the Matte more than glossy.

      How do you get these so early?

    2. Thank you, I think it’s a gorgeous shade as well. I used to think the old version was quite pink (compared to some of my favourites like Bubble Bath or Funny Bunny) but I am in love with both old/new now! Get the new one if you can’t find the old one (though I bet most stores that carry the full range will still have it – it’s a popular shade). 🙂

  2. Maybe pinking came out before I even knew I was a polish addict because this is the first time hearing about that one. Surprised at the difference between the two though, it would’ve been nice if it was a little closer to the original but it still looks nice.

    1. I was very surprised as well!! Both shades are stunning in their own right… though you’re right, it would have been nice if they were the same… 🙂

  3. I’m a fan of shiny polish, the matte looks weird to me. nice swatches, as always. your application is perfect! I still find it weird that OPI is doing glitter.
