PREVIEW: OPI San Francisco Fall/Winter 2013 Collection
OPI Launches the San Francisco Collection for Fall/Winter 2013
San Francisco by OPI brings street chic style with West Coast flair to nails and toes for Fall/Winter 2013. This new collection features a palette ranging from sky and sea-colored hues of blues and gray to reds, burgundies and browns inspired by some of the city’s most iconic elements – Chinatown, the Golden Gate bridge and the Embarcadero. This fall mélange is mixed with texture, seen in three new Liquid Sand™ nail lacquers in earthy hues of taupe, blue and gray: It’s All San Andreas’s Fault, Wharf! Wharf! Wharf! and Alcatraz…Rocks. Liquid Sand lacquers dry to a textured, matte finish, infused with reflective sparkle.
“To me, the women of San Francisco and the city itself really epitomize today’s multifaceted beauty consumer,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “San Francisco offers a European flair with distinct West Coast attributes. These elements inspired a collection of urban chic nail lacquer shades, thanks to the sophisticated combination of high fashion and eclectic street style.
“With twelve colors ranging from moody grays and blues to garnet and ruby jewel tones, these lacquers are designed to accessorize fall’s hottest looks, from military details to winter whites,” continues Weiss-Fischmann. “On fall runways, models were seen wearing luxurious textures from head to toe. The three new Liquid Sand nail lacquers incorporate the texture trend through nails, with rich matte finishes in colors to complement the season’s fashion.”
San Francisco by OPI includes the following shades:
San Francisco nail lacquer shades each feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application. Liquid Sand nail lacquers should always be worn without top coat.

NOTD: Revlon Heavenly over Black
OPI Black Onyx
Hello lovelies! I apologize for the inconsistency of my posts lately. School has been hectic and problem sets have been taking up the majority of my time, poo. :( But not to fear, I still have ten fingers that want to be painted so I will continue to post as often as I can!
Today I have a quick glitter combination to show you. This is Revlon’s Heavenly layered over a black creme. Heavenly is one of Revlon’s newer selections. This clear-base polish is jam-packed with iridescent square and hex glitter chunks. In the bottle, it appears to be milky - nothing too fantastic, but once layered over a dark creme, it’s eye-catching! Many thanks to my momma for picking it up for me. <3
I love how it turns blue, green, and orange at various angles.
What do you think?
Until next time, toodles!
ALL TAPED UP!
gold striping tape
Hi there! :) I have a quick NOTD post for you.
When I started painting these nails, my original intent was to use the gold striping tape as painter’s tape to paint another color over the white base, but after seeing how elegant the gold looked against white polish, I decided to leave them.
I started with my base Kate, which is a white polish with a pearl finish. I received Kate in my Julep Maven box last July along with other goodies. Then using the striping tape, I went ahead and dazzled up the manicure with some gold stripes.
Tip: Use a top coat to prevent the tape from peeling up.
That’s it! Have a great Friday, everyone! :)
