OPI Pirates of the Caribbean & Silver Shatter- Preview!

That’s right ladies – OPI Pirates of the Caribbean collection is right around the corner.  Due to start shipping mid to late April, this new collection features revamped spring pastels with edgier undertones, sophisticated opaque formulas and irresistibly unique shades.

From previews of the collection, these are my favorites:

OPI Silver Shatter Pre Order Picture OPI Silver Shatter:

Most highly anticipated from the collection is OPI’s Silver Shatter, a crackle top coat in a glittering, shimmering silver. Beautiful over spring-y pastels or dark vampy colors for contrast, Silver Shatter is even more wearable than Black Shatter, with the added bonus of sparkle and the same cool broken effect!

Pre-order now.

OPI Mermaid Tears Pirates of the Caribbean Nail Polish OPI Mermaid Tears:

Truly, a “magical” green.  More subdued than the usual mint-y pastel green, OPI Mermaid Tears features a grey undertone and a soft sophistication.  Combined with a classic cream formula, this color is truly wearable – and unique!

Pre-order now.

OPI Stranger Tides Nail Polish Pirates Pictures OPI Stranger Tides:

My personal favorite, OPI Stranger Tides is a blissfully neutral sage, adding the slightest tinge of green to a creamy, cool beige.  A fresh twist on a faithful neutral that is utterly distinct.

Pre-order now.

All of these colors ARE available for pre-order NOW. Order today to reserve your polish when they arrive in April – be the first to have them! Click here to pre-order!

Swatches, Part 3- More Zoya for Fall!

Day three of our Swatch week features Zoya’s Wonderful collection, their newest fall collection released alongside Wicked, and available at Beauty of a Site for purchase- even right now!

Both of the collections play with dark and light, offering one sparkly (Wicked) and one creme (Wonderful) collection for your enjoyment. Play with these bold shades!

Zoya Wonderful Collection Swatches Shawn is a bright myrtyle green, even brighter than our picture gives it credit. The color is even a little murky; more than just a simple green.
Cola is a very warm brown creme, more red than purple. It truly is the color of creamy Colas.  A beautiful color against any skin tone!
Kristi is a bright, classic, pure red, truly crimson.  Warm with orange undertones, this is the perfect pair-with-anything attention-getting red.
Burke, unfortunately, isn’t showing up in our picture as well as we’d hope.  It’s an almost red-berry shade, described by Zoya as a “sienna red” creme.
Stacy, (again, no justice given) is an almost purple / burgundy.  I sort of love the color.  Not bright enough to be berry, but definitely in the purple family, without being dark.  Pretty!
Kelly is so so so beautiful.  When applied, it’s almost a purple-y grey color.  With several coats, it’s steel blue nature shows through.  Absolutely beautiful.

I’ve included one of Zoya’s promotional pictures of the collection below to help offset some of our lighting issues, so that the true colors show through a little more. The collection is beautiful, and I highly suggest putting it on your have-to-have list. Better yet, order it today and get it even before your local beauty store. It’s gorgeous!

More Summer Lacquer from OPI & Essie

Though we’ve barely had time to enjoy our brand new OPI Spain & Shrek Collections, not to mention the brand new Resort Collection from Essie, both popular nail polish creators have something special planned for us for the summer! OPI will be releasing the Flutter Collection alongside Essie’s Summer 2010 Collection within the week – you can start pre-ordering today!!

OPI Summer 2010 Flutter Nail Polish & Nail LacquerBe the first among nail polish gurus everywhere to get these polishes by placing a pre-order. When we receive the polishes in stock either late this week or early next week, yours will ship automatically, without any worries about us running out of stock! Click here to pre-order OPI Flutter and here to pre-order Essie Summer 2010.

OPI Flutter features four new shades, each creative, complex and brilliant in the sunlight. Catch Me In Your Net, the blue of the collection, is my personal favorite color that OPI has released this year, featuring extremely small glitter for a subtle sheen over a comfortably warm turquoise infused blue that is airy but bold. Seriously ladies; it’s gorgeous. Also in the collection are Flit a Bit (orange/coral), Flower-to-Flower (warm pink) and Wing It (deep pink with sheen).

Essie’s Summer 2010 Collection draws its colors from the season’s fashion design, featuring classic, feminine, edgy and bold colors, all in the same collection.  This truly is an odd mix of color, but the interesting palette helps to identify the edgy styles of the summer, ranging from a soft and sexy feminine pink to a powerfully seductive deep green.  Both Pretty Edgy (deep green) and Demure Vixen (orchid / lavender with sheen) are getting all sorts of attention, both for their individuality and the interesting way in which they fit into the color palette.  The other colors in the collection, including Haute As Hello (pink / coral), Knockout Pout (bright pink), Miss Matched (muted neutral lavender) and Vermillionaire (bright red), are more classically Essie, though deliciously classic with a modern twist of color variation.

Essie Summer 2010 Collection

Make sure and pre-order your polish today!  As the products arrive in stock, we’ll definitely try them on and share our swatches!  Check back later this week and early next week for more details!
