Neo-Pearl Collection by OPI

Something for all nail aficionados to look forward to! Illuminate fingers and toes with the new Neo-Pearl Collection by OPI which will hit the shelves end of April 2020 when hopefully all stores will be open again.

and luminosity for a soft and modern update to the metallic nail trend.

From accessories to textiles, pearls are making a reappearance on runways and red carpets in
unexpected, non-traditional ways. The pearl’s influence is seen in each shade. Its whimsical and
feminine qualities combine with bold chrome undertones for elegantly radiant hues. Soothing elements from land and sea lend hints of icy blues and greens to iridescent shades. Classic nudes are infused with notes of blush, rose and lilac for a sophisticated twist on these wearable favorites.

including:
Shellabrate Good Times!
Celebrate your inner luminosity with a classic ivory shade that’ll make you glisten.
Pretty in Pearl
Feeling pearly pretty? Elevate the classic nude with hints of copper and orange.
Shellmates Forever!

Deep, shadowy purple and pearlescent shine add drama to your next mani/pedi.
Two Baroque Pearls
Try some affordable luxury – a pearlescent blue shade that will make you feel rich.
Olive for Pearls!

•Always apply some nail polish at the edge of your nails to prevent chipping on tip of your nails

1. Apply OPI Base Coat
Apply OPI Natural Nail Base Coat to the nail surface, increase lacquer adhesion and prevent discoloration.

2. Apply OPI Color
Apply two coats of Nail Lacquer color of choice (I love «Suzi’s Slinging Mezcal» from the Mexico City Collection!), first stroking down the middle of nail and then on each side for complete coverage.

3. Apply OPI Top Coat
Shake OPI Top Coat thoroughly, then apply one coat to each nail to provide a beautiful shiny finish & extended life to your manicure.

OPI Tokyo Spring 2019 Collection

Tokyo is one of the top trendsetting cities in the world, so it should come as no surprise that OPI has selected the vibrant metropolis as its inspiration for the OPI Tokyo Spring 2019 Collection.

Inspired by the city’s balance of rich tradition and nature with fashion-forward style and ultra-modern cityscapes, this palette features a variety of colors that evoke the energy and creativity of Tokyo. The collection features 12 new shades in classic Nail Lacquer, Long-Wear Infinite Shine and GelColor formulas. With a nod to Tokyo’s status as a trendsetter, the collection includes a new take on millennial pink with dusty rose shades featuring tones of lavender and lilac (Rice Rice Baby, Another Ramen-tic Evening, Arigato from Tokyo, Hurry-juku Get this Color!).

Rich hues inspired by nature from matcha green tea to blooming gardens (How Does Your Zen Garden Grow?, I’m On a Sushi Roll, Suzi-san Climbs Fuji-san, Tempura-ture is Rising!) and vibrant purple and blue hues with metallic shimmer that capture the city’s electric energy and nightlife (All Your Dreams in Vending Machines, Samurai Breaks a Nail, Kanpai OPI!, Chopstix and Stones) round out the collection.

«Tokyo is known for being on the forefront of nail trends – a perfect fit for OPI, where we don’t follow the trends but set them,» declares OPI co-founder and brand ambassador, Suzi Weiss-Fischmann. «In this collection, we are revisiting the 80s and 90s, with pop colors that we’ve given a modern twist, taking inspiration from the famous Harajuku neighborhood. Tokyo brings so much life to this collection, from its eclectic fashion, vibrant nightlife and world-renowned cuisine to the rich traditions including matcha tea ceremonies and zen gardens

I believe in manicures.”

The words famously uttered by film and fashion icon Audrey Hepburn could not ring truer at OPI. That’s why the number one salon brand worldwide is unveiling Breakfast at Tiffany’s – a holiday collection that captures the elegance and effervescence of Audrey as Holly Golightly in the American cinema classic.

opi_breakfastattiffanys_swatchhrh01_ibelieveinmanicuresThe collection’s It-shade: I Believe in Manicures

The new limited edition Breakfast at Tiffany’s shades take their inspiration from Audrey’s classic beauty and sense of playfulness. Timeless reds and burgundies share the marquee with sophisticated, chic glitter shades. The collection also evokes the film’s most memorable fashions, including Holly’s sexy pink party frock, statement-­making little black dress, and elegant five-­strand pearl necklace. And the collection wouldn’t be complete without a signature shade aptly named I Believe in Manicures.

All Breakfast at Tiffany’s nail lacquer shades are also available in GelColor, for a salon-­perfect finish with two-­week wear. I Believe in Manicures – along with five additional shades in timeless hues of pearl, wine, burgundy, coral and dark purple -­ will also be available in OPI’s Infinite Shine No Light Gel Lacquer formula, part of a three-­step gel lacquer system that offers long wear, shine and ease of removal.
