The Russian collection
Blue manicure is the new black, this Fall. Along with some classic colors such as red, purple and brown the new season will be sophisticated.The colors of the new Russian Collection by OPI bring aristocratic Russia back to life and capture the trends of the season perfectly. “Fall’s fashion runways were filled with sophisticated, grown-up style, influenced by the looks of the 1920′s-1940′s, with a polished, aristocratic overtone,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic director. “Simple lines and luxurious fabrics – think cashmere, satin, velvet – stole the shows, with ‘architectural beauty’ an important buzzword.”
The twelve OPI Nail Polish colors in this collection include shades of opulent raisin, rich crimson, deep sea indigo, wintry shade of onyx, decadent dark chocolate, terra cotta pink, shimmering red, shimmery copper, deep shade of wine, rich shade of claret, charcoal with a hint of maroon glimmer and a pale gold touch of starshine. The collection is anything but ordinary. And the color names are a proof: Vodka & Caviar, Suzy Says Da, Krème de la Kremlin, St. Petersburgundy, Cosmo-Not Tonight Honey, Catherine the Grape, Siberian Nights, Ruble for Your Thoughts, Russian Navy and Midnight in Moscow.
The reason why I love the Russian collection so much is because it also sells matching lipstick, with coordinating lip color and lip liner (available in three of the shades: St Petersburgundy, Suzi Says Da and Kreme De La Kremlin-retail price ranging from $10.95 to $12.95). The nail polish itself retails for $7.50 and is available at OPI Nail Polish.
