The month of October is officially Breast Cancer Awareness month. And since statistics tell us that 1 out of every 8 people in America will be affected in some way by this heinous disease, it’s only right that we do our part to help raise funds to fight against breast cancer. Luckily, many Planet Beauty Brands have special products that donate money to Breast Cancer research just by you buying your favorite product that you need anyway!
Every year, OPI nail polish releases their “Pink of Hearts” nail polish for Breast Cancer Awareness. Fitting for the title, the polishes (thus far) have been all lovely shades of bubble gum pink, and 2012 is no exception. This year, a duo set of “I Think in Pink” and “You Glitter Be Good to Me” make up the Pink of Hearts, which can be worn together or alone, sheer or opaque (with several layers, obvi). “I Think in Pink” is a very sheer pink, that can be layered on nicely for a full color look after about 3 coats. “You Glitter Be Good to Me” is a mixture of small pink sparkles with hexagonally shaped fuschia sparkles. Do your part, get a manicure and help fund research for Breast Cancer with OPI!
