Polish Us Pink- OPI Pink of Hearts

Hello lovelies!! Happy Pink Wednesday! As I stated last week, I will be participating in Breast Cancer Awareness month throughout the entire month of October by posting a pink manicure every Wednesday. Don't forget to perform self-checks and remind your family and friends to do so as well. Throughout the month of October, there will be various BCA events in every community across the country, so there are many ways that you can show your support for this cause.

For today's BCA mani, I used the OPI Pink of Hearts 2013 set. The set comes with 2 polishes (a pink creme and multicolored glitter), silver rhinestones, and pink ribbon nail stickers. Here is what it looks like.
To begin this manicure, I started with 2 coats of Pink-ing of You, which is a simple, soft, pink creme polish. The formula was a tad tricky with the first coat but ended up leveling very well. I had to use 3 coats to get the smooth and balanced finish that I desired.
Pink-ing of You
As I stated many times before, pink is not my color, especially a soft, light pink. Although this is the case, this is a really pretty color and I know I will really enjoy using this for manis and pedis with my Sweet Pea. Next, I added an accent using 2 coats of OPI My Vampire is Buff, which is a really great neutral toned creme color. I also added 2 rhinestones to the edge of my ring finger.

The next step was to begin to add in some of the flair with the other products included in the set. I added accent nails on my pinky and index fingers using 2 coats of More Than a Glimmer, a multicolored clear based glitter bomb.

To complete the look, I placed one of the ribbon stickers to the middle finger. Additionally, I placed one rhinestone in the center of the ribbon, topped each of the accent nails with China Glaze Fairy Dust, and finished with G&G HK Girl Topcoat.

I absolutely love the way this turned out!! What do you think?

Have you done any BCA manicures this month? Do you have any suggestions on looks to create for BCA?


Have a great day!
