OPI Hawaii Spring 2015 Swatches and Review

OPI Spring 2015 - Hawaii swatches & review via @alllacqueredup

OPI Spring 2015 – Hawaii

Growing up, all I knew of Hawaii was what I saw in the surfing movie North Shore (not the FOX TV show, though I watched that too) and that my mother wanted to go but felt it was one of those places that you visit and never want to leave. If I had a dollar for every time she said, “If I go to Hawaii, I’m not coming home,” well, I wouldn’t have to work.

This spring, OPI is celebrating the island state with a nail polish collection as colorful as the tropical paradise it represents. The twelve nail polish colors of OPI Hawaii include a variety of finishes and a rainbow of hues.

Morgan Taylor Cinderella Swatches & Review

Morgan Taylor Cinderella review via @alllacqueredup

Morgan Taylor Cinderella

Of all the fairy tale princesses, Cinderella was my favorite as a child. I mean, what little girl wouldn’t love to have a fairy godmother to whip up a ball gown out of scraps with a simple, “Bibbidi bobbidi boo!”  I remember teetering around in a pair of embellished lucite mules I found in my mom’s closet, pretending they were glass slippers. And I still have my Cinderella VHS and Madame Alexander Cinderella dolls, both the ball gown and “poor” versions.

Now Disney is releasing a live action version of Cinderella with Cate Blanchett as the as the evil stepmother and Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother and Morgan Taylor has partnered with film on a nail polish collection. Morgan Taylor Cinderella is their Spring 2015 collection and it’s filled with sweet shades, worthy of a princess.

As we move into Fall, prepare to be whisked away to an icy wonderland thanks to the OPI Fall 2014 Nordic collection.

When creating colors for a new seasonal collection, I always draw inspiration from the food,
music, art, landscape and street style of a particular destination,” remarks Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP. “While conceptualizing the shades of the Nordic Collection, I ate cinnamon buns and drank glogg, snapped photographs of brightly painted houses, and gazed in wonder at the region’s topography – from the northern lights and midnight sun to lava flats and deep fjords. All of these diverse elements came together to inspire an equally varied array of colors that capture the aesthetic of the Nordic region.

I grew up spending many a night in car lots with my parents on our way home from eating out. My dad loved wandering through the rows of cars, with no pressure from salesmen, to check out the latest releases. And even though he has to own a van for work, the man loves American muscle cars. He used to fix up and drag race them before I was born.

I guess it’s no surprise that my first serious boyfriend was also into muscle cars, specifically the Ford Mustang (he owned a ’87 Fastback). Thanks to him and my dad, I know way more about the car than I should. For that reason, I was excited to see what the OPI Mustang collaboration, celebrating the Mustang’s 50th Anniversary, would bring us.

I’m a very ticklish person and I hate, sorry HATE, being tickled. Like, I may involuntarily kick you if you try. Something the boyfriend found out early in our relationship. Sorry, babe!

Though when Tickled means six creamy new nail polishes from Zoya, I’m all on board! As one of half of the Zoya Summer 2014 offerings, Tickled offers a great range of shades for everyone, from the more traditional to the avant garde.
