OPI x Gwen Stefani Collection


OPI Partners with Music and Fashion Icon Gwen Stefani to Launch Limited Edition Nail Lacquers, Featuring Breakthrough Finishes

OPI joins celebrity partner Gwen Stefani in announcing seven new limited edition nail lacquers for 2014, featuring standout color in breakthrough finishes. Highlights from the collection include a bold red lacquer that pays homage to Gwen’s signature lipstick, a new semi-matte satin finish in shades of gold and black, and a mirrored chrome paired with a special base coat.

Inspired by the 2013 Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala that featured the theme "Punk: Chaos to Couture," OPI Executive VP and Artistic Director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann decided to create a collection of lacquer celebrating the role of music as a major influence in fashion. "With her expertise as a singer, songwriter and designer, who better to collaborate with than Gwen Stefani?" asks Weiss-Fischmann. "Known for her trademark red lips, bold eye makeup and nail art, Gwen uses beauty to accessorize her style."

Gwen’s signature red OPI hue – Over & Over A-Gwen – is available in a boxed set, which includes Swarovski black crystals and silver, gold and pewter studs in bar, square, diamond and circle shapes for creating unique nail designs, as well as nail glue for easy application. Love.Angel.Music.Baby. and 4 in the Morning feature a new, semi-matte satin finish designed to be worn without top coat. Push and Shove, a bold chrome hue, is also worn without top coat but requires a special complimentary base coat – Lay Down that Base. One thin coat of Lay Down that Base topped with two thin coats of Push and Shove yields an intense, mirrored finish. The collection is rounded out with two glossy creme lacquers and one sparkly glitter shade: Hey Baby, I Sing in Color, and In True Stefani Fashion.

"OPI wanted to create a collection as dramatic, diverse and glamorous as its namesake," adds Weiss-Fischmann. "With creme and glitter hues, new satin matte texture, a mirrored chrome and SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, Gwen Stefani by OPI presents the latest in pigments and finishes, while combining elements of haute couture and street fashion."

Gwen Stefani by OPI includes the following seven limited edition nail lacquers: Hey Baby, I Sing in Color, Love.Angel.Music.Baby., 4 in the Morning, In True Stefani Fashion, Push and Shove* and Over & Over A-Gwen**.

Gwen Stefani by OPI nail lacquers contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application. This promotion will be available beginning January 2014 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $9.00 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each nail lacquer.

A Ring and Nail Polish Collaboration

Inspired by the resurgence of rose gold in the fashion world, award-winning jewelry designer, Jeannie Vianney, and popular indie nail brand, Cirque, have teamed up to create a special edition ring and nail polish duo. This eye-catching set exudes luxury and royalty by combining common monarchy symbols through shape and color.

True to Jeannie Vianney’s signature style, the rose gold-plated ring is modeled from a piece of lace cast into metal to form a crown shape. The delicate texture lends an air of elegance while the adjustable design accommodates most sizes. To complement the blush hue, Cirque designed a royal purple nail lacquer complete with multidimensional shimmer. The formula features a translucent finish that allows the copper sparkle to peek through while being buildable in 2-3 coats.

“We are excited about the collaboration since nail polish and jewelry go hand in hand. This partnership will be a great way to introduce our customers to each of our product offerings,” says Vianney. The two-piece set comes complete in a pouch and black gift box, making it the perfect package for gifting.

Price: $48.00
Available at: http://www.jeannievianney.com or http://www.cirquecolors.com
Launch date: October 8, 2013
