OPI Pink-ing Of You

Today's polish is actually part of a boxed set from OPI. Every October, OPI releases polish to benefit breast cancer research. I posted this on Instagram right after the Holidays, so my apologies for the deja vu...

Pink of Hearts 2013 came with a bottle of More than a Glimmer, (which I've yet to try) and Pink-ing of You. The set also came with 10 pink ribbon nail decals and 10 rhinestones. (Haven't tried those yet, either!) Alas, on to the swatches!

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
4 Coats OPI Pink-ing Of You
1 Coat Borghese Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Pink-ing Of You is a bubblegum pink creme polish... the very same hue as those pink breast cancer research ribbons. It's a pretty color, but I feel like the formula on mine was off. 4 coats, and I can still see some streaks. Blech.

I know, I know... I'm probably expecting too much considering this is a pastel polish, and they just love streaking. But... OPI has done plenty of similar toned pinks without a streak in sight. They've also done a ton of other pastels without issue. I'm not sure what gives on this one... Maybe I got a faulty bottle? Pink-ing Of You could definitely use some jellification or shimmerizing. It couldn't hurt, right?

But I definitely do really LOVE this color. It's soooooo 1985 and my inner Barbie just loves it. :)
