Pink Wednesday, OPI Elephantastic Pink


Hi Guys,
Hump day already.  I have on OPI Elephantastic Pink from the OPI Spring 2008 India Collection

OPI Elephantastic Pink
 Elephantastic Pink is a  happy pink it's bright but not too bright.   I love the crelly texture (half jelly, half creme).  I wish I can turn all my chalky cremes into crellies they are so much easier to apply then the chalky ones.

    OPI’s new Euro Centrale Collection for Spring/Summer 2013! Press Release

    Hey guys, Can you believe an announcement about a new collection of polish in 2013 already?  And it looks like the price of OPI will be $9.00,  Oh well enjoy this press release.


    The New Voice of Fashion

     

    OPI Announces the Launch of Euro Centrale for Spring/Summer 2013
     
     
    Classic meets contemporary with Euro Centrale by OPI for Spring/Summer 2013. Celebrating a region where history meets modern design, the collection’s twelve new nail lacquers offer a mixture of glamorous metallic hues; playful bright shades in periwinkle, aqua and pink; and creamy blues in indigo, midnight and aubergine.

    “Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania make up an exciting new fashion hotspot,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “When visiting these countries, you’ll view Gothic churches alongside vibrant graffiti murals, blending two very different aesthetics. This fusion of old and new was also seen in runway looks during New York Fashion Week, where classic styles were reinvented with modern silhouettes and patterns.

    Euro Centrale boasts a wide variety of shades, ranging from pale nude to deep blue – and featuring everything from shimmering copper to aqua in between!,” continues Weiss-Fischmann. “Whether you’re looking to spice up a black and white print, or add neutrality to a vivid brocade, these lacquers are designed to accessorize spring’s hottest looks.”

    Euro Centrale by OPI includes the following shades:
     
    Polka.com
    Blue and violet are dancing partners in this glittery combo.
     
     
    OPI…Eurso Euro
