OPI’s Terribly Nice Collection for Holiday 2023 includes 14 shades embracing everyone’s inner duality with seven playful, sweet, and cheerful “nice” shades and seven bold, sexy, and provocative “naughty” hues.

In the “nice” assortment, highly saturated colors have a rainbow effect that’s joyful and uplifting, including metallic shades of golden cream, rose gold, and lavender. Shimmering hues of white with lilac undertones and a jewel-toned fuchsia give nails dimension, while sparkly lilac glitter and deep lavender crème offer one of the season’s trendiest hues in different finishes.

The “naughty” selection incorporates darker jewel tones and strong metals, including metallic shades of gray gold and warm gold, as well as a black multicolored glitter. Teal, brown, and forest green hues feature elegant shimmer finishes. The collection is rounded out with a classic red crème with burgundy undertones.

"The holiday season is a special time for people, and nails play a big role in creating that celebratory feel. Nails are bolder during the holidays, and even have a touch of camp this season, with nail art and embellishments ranging from elegant to over-the-top playful, accentuating and completing holiday looks. OPI’s Terribly Nice collection includes lots of shades packed with glitter, shimmer, and metallic tones – I’m already thinking of what festive clothes I’ll pair with these holiday hues! It’s never too early for the holiday season.”

“With this collection, we’re embracing the idea that each of us is both a little naughty and a little nice,” added OPI Global Director of Color Equity Jill Bartoshevich. “That’s why we’ve selected two hero shades: Rebel with a Clause, a classic go-to holiday red with a provocative edge, and Shaking My Sugarplums, a trending metallic lavender that’s perfect for holiday parties with its cheerful shimmer and shine.”
