OPI Pink of Hearts 2014 nail polish set
Happy Friday, everyone!  No Friday Favorites this week, as these arrived on my doorstep right before dinner yesterday – the limited edition 2014 OPI Pink of Hearts set (see last year’s Pink of Hearts set here).  This is the eight Pink of Hearts set that OPI has released in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  There is one classic pink shade, Mod About You, and one brand new limited edition shade, The Power of Pink.

OPI Mod About You (Pink of Hearts 2014)OPI The Power of Pink (Pink of Hearts 2014)

Mod About You is a classic cotton candy pink shade.  The formula on the bottle I had was slightly thick and didn’t self level well (as you can see on my middle and ring fingers).  I don’t consider that too much of a problem, as it would have been covered up when I applied top coat.

The Power of Pink is a small magenta and white glitters with larger magenta and white hex glitters in a milky base.  I am sure you could wear this one on its own, but I chose to layer it over Mod About You.  The glitters were not hard to get out of the bottle, but I am not happy with the way my pinky finger turned out – to much milky base that is obscuring the glitters.  To avoid this on my remaining fingers I made sure to wipe the brush carefully against the neck of the bottle before applying, almost removing “too much” polish.
OPI will donate $25,000 to Susan G. Komen® in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October). OPI will also donate $5,000 to Rethink Breast Cancer in Canada.

Pink of Hearts 2014 will be available September and October 2014 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, beautybrands.com, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, ULTA and ulta.com for $16.95 ($21.50 CAN) suggested retail.
