OPI joins musician Gwen Stefani in announcing seven new limited-edition nail lacquers for 2014, including two that have a “semi-matte satin finish” that don’t require a top coat, a glitter polish and a special chrome hue. 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 launch 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 make-up and nail art, Gwen uses beauty to accessorize her style.” The standout shade will be a red inspired by Stefani’s signature red lip, named “Over & Over A-Gwen,” which will be available in a boxed set with other nail-art elements like Swarovski black crystals, studs and other appliqués. This promotion will be available beginning January 2014. For more information, visit opi.com.
THE HUES: Other shades include: Hey Baby (the hot pink pictured on Stefani’s nails); 4 in the Morning (the black pictured on Stefani’s nails); Love.Angel.Music.Baby (a semi-matte satin gold); Push and Shove (a bold chrome hue, which can be worn without a top coat but requires a special complimentary base coat—Lay Down that Base); I Sing in Color (a glossy crème blackberry); and In True Stefani Fashion (a holographic silver glitter).
