OPI x The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

Watching Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker ballet is a Holiday tradition that’s full of magic and wonder. In honor of that beloved tradition, OPI has collaborated with Disney in celebration of their new blockbuster, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms to bring shades of royalty to your nails.

OPI created 12 new limited edition nail colors and three perfectly coordinating glitter shades inspired by the Disney movie. Journey through the magic of the Four Realms this holiday season and choose from classic Nail Lacquer, Infinite Shine and GelColor.

Shades top left to top right: Dancing Keeps Me on my Toes – Tinker, Thinker, Winker? – Dreams Need Clara-fication – March in Uniform – Dazzling Dew Drop – Envy the Adventure
Shades bottom left to bottom right: Lavendare to Find Courage – Berry Fairy Fun – Toying with Trouble – Candied Kingdom – Ginger’s Revenge – Black to Reality

Great news! Glitter shades are available for the first time as Infinite Shine:
Gold Key to the Kingdom – Dreams on a  Silver Platter – I Pull the Strings

It doesn’t matter if you’re cold as ice, never sacrifice your sparkle. I love the combination of these three shades: Dreams Need Clara-Fication, Tinker Thinker Winker?, and Dreams on a Silver Platter.

The collection will hit the shelves in Switzerland today and will be available for at least 3 months. Nail Polish CHF 19.90 (15ml) and Infinite Shine CHF 24.90 (15ml).

Mary Katrantzou x Disney x Colette

Inspired by the iconic Walt Disney full length feature film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, London-based designer Mary Katrantzouicon has designed an exclusive collection for iconic Parisian store colette, that will close its door on December 20, 2017 unfortunately.

Marking the 80th anniversary of the groundbreaking animated feature, the collection centers on the scene stealing dwarfs re-imagined in technicolor sequin motifs, boldly embroidered on t-shirts and fully sequined sweatshirts, bombers and dresses. Combining Katrantzou’s signature witty and colourful style with easy-to-wear silhouettes, the collection aligns with colette’s innovative Parisian mix of modernity and originality.

My work is rooted in visual culture and the collaging of disparate elements in unexpected combinations” says Mary Katrantzouicon. “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a definitive moment within pop culture and each individual dwarf expresses a different facet of feelings universal to the human experience. This collection is a re-interpretation of the iconic Snow White characters for our times”.

To celebrate the capsule collection, Mary Katrantzou iconand director Pierre Dixsaut have captured an immersive shimmering wonderland with model Louise Follain. The video will be premiered in the colette windows from now till this Saturday November 25th.

Those beautiful limited edition pieces will be available in store from now until November 25th and online at www.colette.fr from now until December 20th.

Which dwarf are you? #happy #bashful #sleepy#sneezy #dopey #doc #grumpy
I am so in love with this collection! Bravo, Mary!
