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.”

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!
REVIEW: OPI Bond Girls Collection (as previewed here)
The more textured polishes I try, the more I am liking this new trend! Today I have the Bond Girls collection to show you, which features six brand new Liquid Sand polishes from OPI. These polishes will be available in stores at the beginning of May this year.
Oh my, this was the first polish I swatched in this set and I fell in love instantly! Solitaire is a white textured polish with silver sparkles. I highly recommend this polish for a bride! It’s just so elegant and clean and would match perfectly with a shining diamond ring. ;) This is just two thin coats and NO top coat.
Pussy Galore is a cotton candy pink textured polish with a beautiful fuchsia shimmer. Unfortunately I could not capture it with my camera, but believe me when I tell you that this polish looks much, much better in person. This is two coats.
Tiffany Case is a frosty blue with silver sparkles. The formula is fantastic and I only needed to use one coat for full coverage.
Vesper was a surprise for me! It appears a bit muddy in the bottle (almost brownish), and I was not expecting a deep aubergine color to come out. With one coat, you can see a jelly purple with black glitter, but after applying the second coat, you can no longer see them. I’m on the fence about this color because the outcome looks a bit like bumpy leather…
Honey Ryder is gold in a bottle! The textured finish brought back memories of when I was in the fourth grade learning about the California gold rush. We went on a field trip and got to pan for gold in the river. I found several pieces of pyrite which looked and felt exactly like Honey Ryder. Whoops, I’m getting off topic, but I’m just trying to tell you that I love this polish! ;)
Jinx is a stunning coral jelly with a mesmerizing golden shimmer. Oh, it is absolutely amazing in the sun - you’ve got to try it! This is two coats. I am going to go ahead and say that this will be the most popular shade from this collection!
OPI Liquid Sand lacquers should always be worn without top coat (but that shouldn’t stop you from experimenting, hehe).
Bond Girls by OPI nail lacquers feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application. These six new shades will be available beginning May 2013 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Chatters, JCP Salons, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $9.00 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each nail lacquer.
