This fall and winter season is filled with rich metallics, shimmer, and lacquered glitter. Have you guessed that we’re not actually talking wardrobe garb right now? We’re talking nail polish department!! According to OPI VP & Artistic Director, Suzi Weiss-Fischmann,
Once again, the hottest accessory of the season is nail colour…
and we couldn’t be happier with that fact because it’s so easy and completely affordable to accomplish a pretty mani each week. OPI has kicked their holiday color swatch up this season by designing a limited edition nail polish collection, based entirely around the new James Bond movie called Skyfall that’s out this November. The 007 nail polish collection includes both “seductive” and “dangerous” shades of glitters, lacquers, and metallics that are sure to get you the Bond Girl look for the holidays, like newest Bond Girl, Berenice Marlohe.
Another nail polish collection to be seen in by OPI is their “Germany Collection”, an elegant, yet edgy nail color accessory for fall. With metallic hues such as “Suzi & the 7 Düsseldorfs” – a bright metallic purple – “German-icure by OPI” – a shimmery burgundy – and “Deutsch You Want Me Baby?” – a shimming red and orange combo – these classic nail shades will take your fall wardrobe to a whole new level of fashion!
