OPI Pink-ing of You is from the Pink of Hearts 2013 Set that will be in stores this September and October.
(Not long ago, I blogged about the Pink of Hearts 2013 press release.)
The theme is Breast Cancer Awareness, so the set includes this and OPI More than a Glimmer (a glitter) plus nail decals that you can use to create a customized manicure.
In this post, I’ll share with you my thoughts and photos of OPI Pink-ing of You and a few photos of the set.
If you like cute and girly pink creme nail polishes, you may like this one!

OPI Pink-ing of You Review
Pink-ing of You by OPI is a cutesy pink that reminds me of cotton candy at the fair. It’s perfect for Breast Cancer Awareness because I definitely think of a light pink as opposed to a darker shade.
It has a creme finish, but it seems to almost has a ‘marshmallow’ look to it, which looks fluffy and somehow not flat like a typical creme can sometimes appear.
Application & Formula
Pink-ing of You by OPI had a nice, smooth formula that was easy to control. However, I found the finish to be streaky, so I had to use 3 coats to get the opacity you see in my photos.
Keep in mind that I tend to use medium coats, so if you use thin coats, it’s possible that you may need 4 coats.
Final Verdict: 6.5/10
I liked how adorable this shade of pink looks, and for sure you could do a lot of different nail art with this simple colour as a base.
If it was more pigmented and required fewer coats, I would rate it higher.
All that being said, it’s great because not only do you get a cute colour, but you’re helping to spread Breast Cancer awareness.
Will you be purchasing the OPI Pink of Hearts 2013 Set? Do you create a Breast Cancer Awareness manicure each year? If you could design any Breast Cancer Awareness manicure, what would it look like?
