Tag Archives: I Sing in Color

Happy weekend! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday, and were able to spend it with your loved ones. Have you gone Boxing Day shopping (and dared to brave the shops)?

Today I have for you two more Gwen Stefani for OPI shades, a collection that I am totally obsessed with (and it does not disappoint)!

The first shade, I Sing in Color, is a deep burgundy vampy creme that is right up my vamp-loving alley. I have lost count of how many dark to blackened polishes I own, but no matter, I Sing in Color is perfection and a must-have. The creme formula was so saturated that it was almost a one-coater, and not only did it apply easily, it dried to a stunning high gloss finish. Below are two coats over base, without top coat:

In True Stefani Fashion is the only glitter of this 7-piece collection, and, like the rest of this collaboration, it perfectly captures Gwen Stefani’s punk-rock-yet-sophisticated-goddess spirit. A clear base, it is filled with holographic micro-glitter pieces, along with small round and square (!!) glitter. It is the perfect glitter top coat for all of Gwen’s shades and provides just the right amount of glitter. Here it is over I Sing in Color:

I especially love In True Stefani Fashion as a gradient – the different sized glitters easily blend into the base shade to gradually build up… and the holo reflection? Like a disco ball on your nails!

See the gorgeous hot pink/fuchsia crème lacquer Hey Baby and the molten semi-matte gold Love.Angel.Music.Baby here! I hope to get the other shades along with the special base coat Lay Down that Base for the chrome finish Push and Shove soon and will share them as soon as I do!

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 and spas.

Since the news of the Gwen Stefani/OPI partnership broke a couple of months ago, we have been eagerly awaiting full details of the launch… and today I have the press release along with the official colours for you!

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 crème 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 crème 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**.

I absolutely adore Gwen Stefani’s fearless, cool style and well… she’s just one of the coolest chicks ever! That signature red lip with the platinum blonde mane for over a decade? She never goes out of style. And to partner with OPI is ingenious! I’ve been waiting for the official release of the colours and am not disappointed… 🙂

Ok…. tell me which ones you must absolutely have???
