Breast cancer has affected the lives of millions. Chances are that you know someone who has or had breast cancer.
But what a lot of people don’t realize is that men, not just women, get breast cancer! It’s not as common, but that doesn’t mean it’s not important.
I read on Wikipedia that about 1% of breast cancer occurs in males. Also, “the relative risk of breast cancer for a female with an affected brother is approximately 30% higher than for a female with an affected sister.”
There are significant differences in breast cancer in females versus males. Since men tend to have a smaller breast size, the lesions are easier to find. However, the scary thing is that because there’s less awareness of breast cancer in men, they may hesitate to seek medical attention.
The whole reason why I’m mentioning breast cancer is because OPI is coming out with a new nail-polish set with a breast-cancer-awareness theme.
With the purchase of the OPI Pink of Hearts 2013 set available in September and October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month), you’ll get 2 full-size, limited-edition nail polishes: OPI Pink-ing of You (pale pink) and OPI More than a Glimmer (a glitterbomb). The OPI Pink of Hearts 2013 set also comes with crystal and pink-ribbon nail decals.
The following official press release was sent to me by OPI’s PR:
OPI Supports Breast Cancer Awareness with Seventh Annual Pink of Hearts Promotion
OPI announces the launch of its seventh annual limited edition Pink of Hearts promotion, featuring the classic sheer pink shade Pink-ing of You and the new sparkle packed hue More than a Glimmer. Pink of Hearts 2013 will also include pink ribbon and crystal decals (10 each) to embellish nails.
This duo pack is designed to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research and support. In 2013, OPI will donate $25,000 in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) to Susan G. Komen®. OPI will also donate $5,000 to Rethink Breast Cancer in Canada.
“OPI is proud to support Susan G. Komen and Rethink Brest Cancer with the seventh annual Pink of Hearts promotion,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI cofounder & Artistic Director. “I encourage women to create and customize their own Pink of Hearts manicure, wearing these colors as a visible way to honor everyone whose lives have been touched by breast cancer.”
Pink of Hearts 2013 includes two shades sold in one pack – the pale pink Pinking of You and the vibrant More than a Glimmer. This sparkly lacquer is packed with both micro and macro matte glitters in a rainbow of colors and should be worn without a top coat, either alone or layered on top of Pink-ing of You. Each bottle also features a special pink ribbon cap wrap in support of breast cancer awareness, and every set offers 10 each decorative pink ribbon and crystal decals.

OPI More than a Glimmer looks so neat. I just had to show you a close-up of the promo picture. It reminds me of a milky version of OPI Rainbow Connection.
Will you be buying the OPI Pink of Hearts 2013 set? Do you know someone who’s fighting breast cancer or who has beat breast cancer?
