The Gwen Stefani for OPI collection is finally here and all I can say is, IT’S ABOUT TIME. Seriously, how it’s taken this long for the music and fashion icon to come out with a line of nail polish, baffles me. She’s as known for her red lips and tips as she is her unique vocals. Not that she doesn’t stray into the world of nail art, mind you, but when I think of Gwen, I think of bold, fierce red.

So it should come as no surprise that this collection is highlighted by a signature red shade, Over & Over A-Gwen, that comes in its own Gwen-ified packaging. In addition to that, we have six new shades in a range of finishes including OPI’s attempt at a true chrome. Check it out!

As part of their bigger-than-ever holiday collection, OPI Mariah Carey Holiday includes six new Liquid Sand colors. Unlike the Liquid Sand’s that were part of the first Mariah Carey collection, these shades are more refined. No star glitter or giant chunky sequins to be found. I like the direction OPI has taken with Liquid Sand and the way they have evolved it over the past year. These shades are more in line with my PixieDust-loving self.

As I shared with you after my Fall & Holiday Nail Trend presentation at Nordstrom’s Pretty Party, one of the big trends for holiday is metallics along with classic creamy reds. MAC has certainly embraced this trend with their Holiday 2013 nail polish offerings.

The MAC Divine Night collection includes two metallics (one being matte) and the RiRi Hearts MAC Holiday collection has one rich red in Rhianna’s signature color, RiRi Woo. I included one of the MAC Indulge shades as well since it’s still available and works so well for holiday.

When Fashion’s Night Out was canceled in the US, I wondered what that meant in regards to the covet-able Chanel Fashion’s Night Out collections (Les Khakis, Les Jeans, etc). Then I saw that, in spite of the US bailing on the concept, they released the Chanel Nuit Magique Collection overseas with two gorgeous Le Vernis shades, Chanel Cosmic & Magic. I was one sad panda!

So, to say that I was beyond thrilled to discover that Chanel is releasing both nail polishes in the States, would be an understatement. Coming exclusively to Chanel.com on December 2nd, Cosmic & Magic are sure to put a crimp in your Cyber Monday budget.
