OPI Joins Bond 007 to Release Six New Revolutionary Liquid Sand™ Nail Lacquers Inspired by 50 Years of James Bond

 OPI announces the launch of Bond Girls, a collection of six new Liquid Sand™ nail lacquers featuring a textured, matte finish infused with reflective sparkle fitting the allure surrounding the Bond Girls.  In hues of white, pink, blue, purple, gold and coral, Bond Girls offers a range of shimmering shades with the distinctive Liquid Sand finish.
 “OPI is extremely excited to partner again with EON Productions,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI co-founder & Artistic Director. “Following the success of the holiday promotion with the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, it’s been a thrill to create colors for the women who’ve captured Bond’s attention over the last five decades.
“The six shades are named after some of the most iconic – and my favorite – Bond girls, including: Solitaire, Pussy Galore, Tiffany Case, Vesper, Honey Ryder and Jinx,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “Worn without top coat, these Liquid Sand lacquers give nails a pebbled, matte finish worthy of the captivating ‘Bond Girls’ name.”

Hard Candy - Pink Taffy Swatch (Candy Sprinkles)

Hi all!

Today I have a swatch of Pink Taffy from the Hard Candy - Candy Sprinkles Collection. 
This color was a little more difficult to apply because it was a little on the thicker side but it wasn't too bad. 
Pink Taffy has a bright pink base with white, black (or dark gray) and pink glitter. I love this collection and pink is my favorite color so I'm happy with this one even though it was a little bit thicker than Pixie Pink which I had no issues with. I used a base coat and two coats of the Pink Taffy. 

Check out the new Hard Candy collection at Walmart.com or at a Walmart store near you. 

Will any of you be picking up any of the colors from this collection?

See you all tomorrow with a new swatch!! Hope everyone has a lovely night. <3


OPI Celebrates Disney's Oz The Great and Powerful

OPI Celebrates Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful with Limited Edition Nail Lacquers, Including NEW Liquid SandÔ Hue



                OPI announces the launch of six limited edition nail lacquers and a new Liquid Sand shade, inspired by Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful.  With an all-star cast that includes James Franco and Michelle Williams, this highly-anticipated film opens in theaters on March 8, 2013. 
 “OPI is very excited to take this fantastical journey with Disney,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  “Inspired by the magic of Oz The Great and Powerful, this SoftShades collection captures the whimsy seen in the film, from glittery shades packed with white, gold and silvery iridescent confetti – Lights of Emerald City, When Monkeys Fly! and Which is Witch? – to soft neutrals in white, beige and pink – Don’t Burst My Bubble, Glints of Glinda and I Theodora You.
“The new Liquid Sand nail lacquer – What Wizardry is This? – features OPI’s groundbreaking technology for a textured, matte finish infused with reflective sparkle,” adds Weiss-Fischmann.  “This rich taupe hue was designed for James Franco’s character, the great Wizard of Oz, and is sure to make a bold statement this spring.”
With a mix of soft crème and warm glitter shades, the line is ideal for layering to create rich, complex looks. In addition to the Liquid Sand nail lacquer in What Wizardry is This?, the promotion includes:
Lights of Emerald City
White confetti adds city girl flair and style to nails.



Don’t Burst My Bubble
Don’t wake me...I’m dreaming about puffy clouds of white.



When Monkeys Fly! 
I’m simply bananas for this gold confetti. 



Glints of Glinda
Only a good witch could turn beige from meek to chic.



Which is Witch?
Is this silver glitter with iridescent sparkle or the other way around?



I Theodora You
 This adorable, sheer pink is bewitching on you.



What Wizardry is This? (Liquid Sand)



As with all OPI nail lacquers, the shades inspired by Oz The Great and Powerful contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application.

ABOUT Oz The Great and Powerful
Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great wizard but into a better man as well.

“Oz The Great and Powerful” is produced by Joe Roth, with screen story by Mitchell Kapner and screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire. Grant Curtis, Palak Patel, Philip Steuer and Josh Donen are serving as executive producers. “Oz The Great and Powerful” opens in U.S. theaters on March 8, 2013.




Hard Candy - Pixie Pink Swatch + Update

Hey everyone,

I'm in the process of revamping my blog and I am going to work on it more often...a lot of stuff has been going on in my personal life and sometimes it's just hard to keep up. I am battling Bronchitis at the moment but I really wanted to get at least one swatch up today. 

I was able to get my hands on the new Hard Candy nail polish line and I must say I love all of the colors. I've always been a fan of Hard Candy and I love the new packaging and the entire collection.

Here's a photo of the polishes I have...and below that will be a swatch of one of the polishes from the Candy Sprinkles line.

Here is Pixie Pink from the Candy Sprinkles line:

Pixie Pink to me is a pale lavender color with silver, blue and purple glitters. The application was super easy, I didn't experience any clumping or bubbling and the polish wasn't sticky or thick to me at all. I used Essie's 3 - Way Glaze for my base coat, then two coats of the Pixie Pink and Seche Vite for my top coat.

You can find the entire Hard Candy nail polish line at Walmart stores and this week on walmart.com for $3.97.
