OPI Euro Centrale - Spring/Summer 2013

OPI Announces the Launch of Euro Centrale for Spring/Summer 2013

Classic meets contemporary with Euro Centrale by OPI for Spring/Summer 2013. Celebrating a region where history meets modern design, the collection’s twelve new nail lacquers offer a mixture of glamorous metallic hues; playful bright shades in periwinkle, aqua and pink; and creamy blues in indigo, midnight and aubergine.

“Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania make up an exciting new fashion hotspot,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “When visiting these countries, you’ll view Gothic churches alongside vibrant graffiti murals, blending two very different aesthetics. This fusion of old and new was also seen in runway looks during New York Fashion Week, where classic styles were reinvented with modern silhouettes and patterns.

“Euro Centrale boasts a wide variety of shades, ranging from pale nude to deep blue – and featuring everything from shimmering copper to aqua in between!,” continues Weiss-Fischmann. “Whether you’re looking to spice up a black and white print, or add neutrality to a vivid brocade, these lacquers are designed to accessorize spring’s hottest looks.”

Euro Centrale by OPI includes the following shades:

  • - Blue and violet are dancing partners in this glittery combo.
  • OPI…Eurso Euro -  This deep blue cream is very continental.
  • Suzi’s Hungary AGAIN! - Thank goodness there are zero calories in this warm and yummy pink!
  • You’re Such a BudaPest - If I let you borrow this periwinkle-purple, will you go away?
  • Can’t Find My Czechbook - I hope you take credit, because I must have this aqua!
  • My Paprika is Hotter than Yours! - Get the extinguisher...this fiery red is sizzling!
  • Hands Off My Kielbasa! - Get your own...this bronzy tan is all mine!
  • OY–Another Polish Joke! - So this shimmery-gold walks into a bar...
  • A Woman’s Prague-ative - I’m changing this shimmery copper for...never mind!
  • Vant to Bite My Neck? - You know you want to...wear this deep eggplant.
  • I Saw…U Saw…We Saw…Warsaw - Be seen in this deep midnight blue.
  • My Vampire is Buff - Creamy, pale and nude...just how I like my vampires.

Euro Centrale Collection nail lacquer shades contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and each includes OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application.

Zoya Gilty Pleasures - Back in Stock - Limited Quantities

The tale of the Golden Zoya Fairy...
We really wanted to surprise you next week, but we just couldn't wait! The Zoya French Fairy reported that she found a secret treasure chest of gold while scouting the French Riviera. It wasn't easy but she quickly scooped up all the gold she could possibly carry and immediately flew across the ocean to bring it here... she knew how many people have been asking for the Zoya Gilty Pleasures Gift Sets.

We were soooo happy when she arrived with the gold, that we threw her a fabulous party and showered her with M&M's (sadly we were out of eclairs and croissants). After all, Gold is heavy, and flying it here was really hard (and expensive) work for a Fairy, so we can't thank her enough for delivering it with such speed and grace! Viva La Zoya French Fairy :)

So hurry to to secure your Limited Edition Zoya Gilty Pleasures Gift Set! This time it really will go away forever!

Back by Popular Demand - Zoya is dedicated to keeping our fans happy and always beautifully polished!

$35.00 (US)

OPI Instinct of Color

OPI Announces Brand’s First International Short Film

OPI pays hommage to its Culture of Color with the international launch of its first branded film. Set to the French DJ band C2C’s “Down the Road,” the video features a surrealistic dance-off between four female dancers and a gorgeous Thoroughbred, as trained by equestrian stuntmaster Mario Luraschi.

Named after OPI’s classic black nail lacquer, Lady in Black (known as Black Onyx in North America) brought to the film a repetoire of moves including tap steps and dancing en pointe, while showcasing bestselling OPI colors on her hooves.

The film’s four featured lacquers – Pink-ing of You, Red My Fortune Cookie, Need Sunglasses? and No Room for the Blues – each represent one style of dance and one overarching theme, illustrating OPI nail lacquer as a means of self-expression.

“I always say that nail lacquer can change your look – and your outlook,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP and Artistic Director. “Today, nail color can convey feelings and emotions, expressing on the outside what the wearer is feeling on the inside. In this short film, four women communicate through dance and color. With a trained Thoroughbred who could replicate the dancers’ moves with very little digital enhancement, we were able to capture the unique, energetic and creative culture that epitomizes the OPI brand.”
