OPI Presents a Paradise of Color: The India Collection for Spring/Summer 2008
Color has the energy to excite, to charm, and to soothe â€“ and the shades of the new India Collection by OPI for Spring/Summer 2008 offer a sunny, high-energy palette for nails and lips.
â€œThere has never been a better, brighter moment for color than now,â€ explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. â€œSpringâ€™s fashion palette is filled with rosy pink, magenta, turquoise, yellow (the new â€˜itâ€™ 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.â€
According to Weiss-Fischmann, lighter shades for nails are so right with the seasonâ€™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 springâ€™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.
â€œNeutrals, darks, and metallics add sophisticated color to nails and lips,â€ says Weiss-Fischmann. â€œTry these shades with fashionâ€™s long, fluid tunics and loosely cut trousers in mineral tones, as well with high-waisted pants and slouchy jackets â€“ including an updated spin on the safari jacket.â€
Wide-brimmed hats, brightly colored bangles and clutches, open-toed wedge heels, and India-inspired beading and metallic embroidery are important touches.
