OPI Presents a Paradise of Color: The India Collection for Spring/Summer 2008

Color has the energy to excite, to charm, and to soothe – and the shades of the new India Collection by OPI for Spring/Summer 2008 offer a sunny, high-energy palette for nails and lips.

“There has never been a better, brighter moment for color than now,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “Spring’s fashion palette is filled with rosy pink, magenta, turquoise, yellow (the new ‘it’ shade), tangerine, and geranium red, used as splashes against natural tones and in bold graphic prints. Shades of hot pink, orange, vivid red, and coral on nails are the perfect complement.”

According to Weiss-Fischmann, lighter shades for nails are so right with the season’s alluring, feminine fabrics. She suggests pale opal nails with delicate dresses of flowing chiffon, organza, tulle, and liquid jersey (very romantic on toes during a midnight walk on the beach); and dove grey nails to accessorize spring’s must-have dress, the body-skimming sheath, shown in soft, watercolor tones. Carnation-pink nails enhance fashion details like sheer overlays, tiered skirts, ruffles, and pleats.

“Neutrals, darks, and metallics add sophisticated color to nails and lips,” says Weiss-Fischmann. “Try these shades with fashion’s long, fluid tunics and loosely cut trousers in mineral tones, as well with high-waisted pants and slouchy jackets – including an updated spin on the safari jacket.”

Wide-brimmed hats, brightly colored bangles and clutches, open-toed wedge heels, and India-inspired beading and metallic embroidery are important touches.

The 12 shades for nails from the India Collection by OPI allow you to immerse yourself in the season’s color nirvana:

Get Me to the Taj on Time – I don’t want to miss this pale opal shade!

ElePhantastic Pink – This carnation pink may start a stampede!

I’m Indi-a Mood for Love – And this hot pink is what I lust for!

Lunch at the Delhi – Now serving a luscious shade of coral.

MonSooner or Later – Drench your nails in this deluge of orange-red.

Keys to My Karma – Start your good fortune with this rich red.

Moon Over Mumbai – A romantic shade of soft, moonlit grey.

Yoga-ta Get this Blue! – Make this deep, dark blue your fashion mantra.

Royal Rajah Ruby – Jeweled burgundy befitting a prince’s princess.

Curry Up Don’t Be Late! – This spicy golden metallic simmers with style!

Black Cherry Chutney – Deliciously dark black-red.

Charmed by a Snake – A charming, disarming shade of bronze.

The India Collection Nail Lacquers contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and each features the exclusive OPI ProWideâ„¢ Brush for the ultimate in application.

Three of the India Collection shades – Lunch at the Delhi, Royal Rajah Ruby, and Charmed by a Snake – are designated as Suzi’s Picks and are also available in coordinating Lip Colour and Lip Liner. OPI Lip Colour has a richer, silkier new formula, developed to wear and last beautifully.
