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:
