Calling all Hello Kitty fans! OPI is celebrating the launch of their NEW Hello Kitty by OPI collection with a truck giving away FREE polishes, pink and dark hot chocolate along with treats from the @HelloKittyCafe and a special appearance by Hello Kitty herself!
I was recently asked what my biggest beauty blunder was and without hesitation it is peeling gel manicures off. Truth be told, I LOVE the finish and long lasting power of a gel manicure, but have little patience to go back to the salon and endure the soak–off process. So when my friends at Refinery29 asked me to partner with them and test out the new OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effects Lacquer System, I was all over it!
Now I know I already posted about Miley Cyrus’ art — which if you have no idea what I’m talking about click HERE. But basically, Miley debuted her art backstage at the Jeremy Scott Spring/Summer Fashion Show and her jewelry collection on the models that went down the runway. And somehow this totally overshadowed what I should have been posting about… the awesome beauty!
Last week, I hit up the OPI x Coca Cola launch party to celebrate the two powerhouses coming together for a nail polish collaboration. Launching with 9 nail lacquers inspired by Coca-Cola’s most popular beverages, the collection comes in a rainbow of nine shades inspired by Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Cherry Coke, Vanilla Coke, Sprite, Fanta Orange and Fanta Grape.
Rebecca Taylor was true to her reputation for S/S 2012 offering feminine, wearable dresses and separates that move with the body. Unfortunately, iPhone’s video capabilities and Fashion Week lighting are not a winning combination, but here’s a quick peak at the finale of the show:
“Inspiration is so ephemeral,” said Taylor, stating that she picked up her inspiration from a hodgepodge of places. Aiming to set a contemporary, fresh, and ethereal tone to the designs, the collection emphasizes cut and color with unexpected cut-outs in sibhouettes. This was reflected in her collection which mixed flowy materials and sparkly embellished tops, with some structured dark colored dresses. Also white, neon yellow, floral prints as well as a few dark black and blue pieces were thrown in, creating this disjointed palette. Although the collection lacks the drama and excitement of many runway shows, it is very wearable and I am sure the retails buyers were marking their favorites to display this Spring.
My two favorite looks from the collection included
Dell Computers is partnering with OPI nail lacquer to launch a collection of Dell Mini, Inspiron, and Studio laptops based on 20 classic OPI colors such as “Big Apple Red,” “Kyoto Pearl,” and “Rosy Future,” along with six holiday shades including “Merry Midnight” and “Smitten with Mittens”.
I’m loving this trend of technology meeting beauty/fashion; first the digital clutch from HP and designer, Vivienne Tam, and now, Dell collaborating with OPI.
Unlike the HP/Vivienne Tam laptop scheduled to launch Spring 2010, the Dell/OPI models will be available next month. Just in time for the holidays — it makes a perfect gift especially for a beauty blogger (ahem).
And considering I’m kicking around the idea of moving to Hawaii for a few months, I could definitely use the “I’m Not Really a Waitress” laptop!
