Like a lot of kids of the 80s, I grew up watching It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown every year. I’ve always had an affinity for Peanuts, especially Lucy, Shroeder and Snoopy. And if you’re also an Arrested Development fan, you fangirled out when George Michael took his sullen, “Charlie Brown” head-down walks.
Though, truth be told, Halloween is actually my least favorite holiday. For some reason, it has always creeped me out. Which is why I don’t normally post about Halloween collections but I’m making a huge exception because, PEANUTS!! The Peanuts by OPI collection is actually making me excited for Halloween. This set of four nail polish shades pays homage to the classic comic and its most iconic characters.
Peanuts by OPI brings to life Charles M. Schulz’s comic strip characters for Halloween 2014. Inspired by “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” the four new limited edition nail lacquer shades include seasonal yellow and black crèmes, as well as two black-based glitter hues.
“‘It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’ is a classic, beloved film,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Brand Ambassador. “Peanuts by OPI celebrates the fun, youthful nature of Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and Snoopy with four limited edition nail lacquer shades designed to capture the spirit of Halloween. With two crème and two glitter options, you can switch between a cheery yellow or chic black look, or try adding a layer of glitter for a unique finish.”
OPI Good Grief! – The sunny yellow of Charlie Brown’s favorite t-shirt.
OPI To Be or Not To Beagle – Snoopy’s happy-dance of colors in a joyful glitter.
OPI Where’s My Blanket??? – Linus awaits the Great Pumpkin in this orange and black glitter.
OPI WHO ARE YOU CALLING BOSSY?!? – This stormy black is no match for Lucy’s raven hair.
Each of the four shades is also available in the Little Peanuts mini pack, which is sold with ten nail decals ranging from popular Peanuts phrases like “Good Grief!” and “Pow!” to sketches of Snoopy and the signature squiggle of Charlie Brown’s shirt.
“These stickers offer a playful, kitschy way to add instant art to nails,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “My favorite decal pays tribute to Snoopy’s many kisses – ‘Smak!’”
I don’t know about you guys, but when I first looked at To Be or Not To Beagle, I thought the glitters were actually printed with the faces of the Peanuts gang. My mind is clearly playing tricks on me but it really looked like Lucy’s face at the bottom.
The cremes may not be the most unique but they fit with the theme and the glitters represent the colors of Peanuts and The Great Pumpkin beautifully. And I will definitely pick up the minis just to get the nail stickers. Commence ULTA stalking!
