China Glaze Crackle Glaze Nail Polish

These colors are *especially* awesome over black.  I suggest a matte black base coat under Broken Hearted, Fault Line and Crushed Candy, and a plain white base coat under Black Mesh.  The contrast is incredible.  Though all of the colors in this collection are amazing, my personal favorites are the following:

In the image above, all the same polishes are coated with OPI Silver Shatter.  The top three hues on the right (Planks A Lot, Mermaid Tears and Stranger Tides) have the Silver Shatter applied in the normal direction, from top to bottom of the nail.  The next two shades (Skull & Glossbones, Stead As She Rose) have the Silver Shatter applied from side to side, for a different coating.  The last shade (Sparrow Me the Drama) has it applied in a wavy pattern.  We were excited to see the variation!

OPI Femme de Cirque Soft Shades Nail Polish Nail Lacquer

OPI’s introduces four new Soft Shades for Spring 2011: OPI Femme de Cirque.  This mini collection includes the follow colors:

(pictured from left to right) OPI I Juggle … Men, OPI So Many Clowns So Little Time, OPI In the Spot-Light Pink, and OPI Step Right Up!

OPI Step Right Up, OPI In the Spot-Light Pink, OPI So Many Clowns, So Little Time, OPI I Juggle... Men

As with many of the OPI Soft Shades, the Cirque colors are very translucent, providing a subtle wash of color.  OPI Step Right Up! is by far the most opaque, achieving a nearly opaque finish within a couple of coats.  OPI I Juggle… Men is definitely the most sheer, as its designed to be an iridescent top coat over other pastel polishes, to add depth of color and the just the slightest bit of sparkle.  Over other polish, its truly magical!

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!

Embrace Spring!

Congratulations, readers, you’ve made it!  March 20th marks the first day of Spring 2011.  Embrace the new season with Beauty of a Site!

1. Wear Green.

The most prominent sign of the new season is the hints of green popping up all over the country.  Whether for your favorite St. Patty’s day party or just for celebrating the season, green celebrates new growth and new chances.  It’s an essential part of your wardrobe!

OPI Don't Mess with Texas, China Glaze Starboard, Zoya Gemma

Try OPI’s Don’t Mess with OPI, from the Texas Collection, Zoya’s Gemma, or China Glaze’s Starboard from Anchor’s Away, for a chic green hue.

2. Welcome Florals.

More than any other season, Spring has its very own smell. Even before the flowers start blooming, get rid of winter’s musty smell with fresh florals of your own!

Fragrances of Spring

Choose Kai’s Room and Linen spray for hawaiian-inspired freshness, or this lily-scented candle from Aunt Sadie!

3. Bring on the sun!

Warmer weather, short sleeves and flip flops are not far off.  Prepare your skin for the challenge: scrub up, moisturize and bring on the bronze!
