I think most of you regular readers are aware of my nail polish mini-obsession. I say mini only because nothing compares to my fairy tale and folklore and reading obsessions. OPI Nail Lacquers usually offer at least one collection each year inspired by a country. They have just announced that the 2012 Fall Collection is inspired by Germany.
Germany? Yes, I, too, wondered if any of the colors would have fairy tale inspired names and fortunately OPI didn't fail me. One of the nail polishes is Suzi & the 7 Düsseldorfs (The most beautiful bright purple of all.) according to the press release. How fitting with this year being so Snow White heavy as well as the 200 year Grimms Anniversary. Suzi, by the way, is OPI's founder and her name often appears in an OPI collection.
Here's the Press Release:
OPI Germany Collection
for Fall/Winter 2012
OPI embraces runway trends with the Germany Collection for Fall/Winter 2012.
Drawing inspiration from Berlin, an exciting new fashion hub that blends classic looks with the avant-garde, the collection’s twelve shades offer a mixture of vibrant color, urban-chic neutrals, and reds in variations from light to dark.
“Designers showcased rich colors and striking textures for fall,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “The Germany Collection beautifully complements these looks, with standout shades in various hues of red and burgundy – the season’s ‘new black.’ Sapphire, black olive and lime yellow are married with creamy neutrals in honey, taupe and nude rose.”
“The overall feel of the Germany Collection is elegance with an edge,” adds Suzi. “The varied palette of colors adds another accent to the list of special touches – think beadwork, paneling, fur and embroidery – that walked the runways during New York Fashion Week. Wearing these shades on fingers and toes is a great way to accessorize a range of looks for the season.”
Germany by OPI includes the following shades:
Don’t Pretzel My Buttons A haute honey-beige that can always make you smile.
My Very First Knockwurst …and what a magical rosy-nude rendezvous it was!
