OPI Launches the Nordic Collection, Featuring 12 New Shades for Fall/Winter 2014
Inspired by the great northern lights in Finland, deep blue fjords in Norway, and colorful houses in Copenhagen, Nordic Collection by OPI brings the diverse colors of its namesake region to nails and toes for fall/winter 2014. This new collection of 12 lacquers features a palette ranging from spicy browns in shades of bronze, cinnamon and caramel to rich purples in wine, black cherry and blue-violet hues, with accents of creamy coral, pink and sea green.
“When creating colors for a new seasonal collection, I always draw inspiration from the food, music, art, landscape and street style of a particular destination,” remarks Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP. “While conceptualizing the shades of the Nordic Collection, I ate cinnamon buns and drank glogg, snapped photographs of brightly painted houses, and gazed in wonder at the region’s topography – from the northern lights and midnight sun to lava flats and deep fjords. All of these diverse elements came together to inspire an equally varied array of colors that capture the aesthetic of the Nordic region.
“Contrasts were also seen on fall runways, where sheer fabrics were paired with fleece and woolen plaids were embellished with colorful beadwork and intricate lace,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “Nordic Collection by OPI complements the oxblood, coral and earthy tones seen this season and offers a variety of hues. With so many color choices, the Nordic Collection makes it easy to experiment with new nail looks and cultivate personal style. I believe strongly in experimenting with beauty and fashion until finding a unique look. We are sure of only one taste – our own.”
Nordic Collection by OPI includes the following shades in both nail lacquer and GelColor formulas:
Nordic Collection nail lacquer shades each feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application. Nordic Collection by OPI will be available in both nail lacquer and GelColor formulas beginning August 6, 2014. Nail lacquers will retail for $11.50 CAN each at Professional Salons and Spas. GelColor is an in-salon, professional service only. Prices depend on the salon and range from $28 – $38 for a manicure and $35 – $45 for a pedicure.
Which colour is calling your name? I am loving all of the neutrals – how warm and perfect are they for fall?? – but I also love the variety of brights and purples. Suzi has a Swede Tooth is a perfect summer-transition-to-fall shade. : )
