Nail polish powerhouse OPI has teamed up with beauty superstore Sephora to create an exclusive line of nail colors, nail treatments and hand care products. Dubbed Sephora by OPI the brand will launch with a whopping 54 nail lacquers that will run the gamut from sheer to vampy with a smattering of funky thrown in for girls like me.
They certainly covered the bases in regards to nail treatments. In addition to the standard Base & Top Coat ($9) and Remover ($9), Sephora by OPI includes a Nail Strengthener ($9), Nail Hydrator ($9), Nail Brightener ($9) and Nail Colour Drying Drops ($14).
The hand and nail care products come in sleek black packaging and include an Exfoliating Scrub ($10), Daily Hand Moisturizer ($9), Restorative Hand Moisturizer ($10), Brush-On Cuticle Oil ($9) and Nail Pads ($6) for polish removal on the go.
And now for the most important piece of the collection, the polish. The Nail Colour ($9) collection was designed for Sephora by OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann. As we would expect, Suzi put that fun OPI spin on all the names and created a really diverse color palette.
In addition to a slew of new shades, the Sephora by OPI collection introduces a new bottle shape to the market. Taller, weightier and more rounded than traditional OPI bottles, they have a sleeker, more sophisticated feel. Though they can be a pain to open the first time. The smooth caps + super tight seal = calling the boyfriend for help.
Even though I haven’t tested all 54 shades I can already call out some early favorites based on the bottle colors/palettes I’ve seen. Run With It! (shimmery sandy gray), Never Enough Shoes (edgy glittering black), Cab Fare (sparkly lemon yellow), Queen of Everything (metallic silver-gold mix) and Note To Self (gold flecked orange). Here’s a sneak peak of the colors I’ll be testing.
The Sephora by OPI collection will be avaialable in stores and on the Sephora.com website beginning in August.
