OPI Summer 2008 Preview – Retro Fun in the Sun
Like a frothy beach party flick (think Gidget, Beach Blanket Bingo), the OPI Retro Fun In The Sun collection will be surfing onto shelves this summer. Filled with kitschy, fun shades the lacquers are perfect for those long sunny days of lazing in the sand. To add to the fun, each bottle comes with a retro ponytail holder. Takes me right back to elementary school when I had a ballerina jewelry box filled with hair ties in every color imaginable.
â€œIn summer, glamour really moves from the city out to the sand, and these shades combine a retro pin-up-girl look with a beach party attitude â€“ think ponytails, Frankie and Annette, and romance under the stars,â€ says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. â€œThe colors are rich, playful, and sexy â€“ a great way to accessorize one of fashionâ€™s most colorful summers ever!â€
Sit Under the Apple Tree – A tempting, light apple green.
Lemonade Stand by Your Man – Youâ€™ll stay loyal to this refreshing yellow.
Give Me a Coral Sometime – Iâ€™ll answer in this inviting pink-orange.
Sea Ya Later, Sailor! – A fun, flirtatious turquoise shimmer.
Calendar Girl – A pin-up, perfect pink-red.
Like previous beach themed OPI collections (It’s Summer for Shore, Surf Party) I’m expecting the Retro nail polishes to have a unique shimmer that will make the nail girlies go gaga. I can’t wait to see them in person and find out! Will this line become just as collectible? We’ll just have to wait and see.
The Retro Fun in The Sun collection drops (I’m so street) in June and will be available at salons including Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, Ulta, Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Dillardâ€™s, and JCPenney. MSRP $8.50 ($9.95 CAN)
