If you’re loving textured nail polish, you will not be left wanting. New colors from OPI are on the horizon and they’ve re-teamed with EON Productions to make them Bond Girl themed.
OPI Joins Bond 007 to Release Six New Revolutionary Liquid Sand™ Nail Lacquers Inspired by 50 Years of James Bond
OPI announces the launch of Bond Girls, a collection of six new Liquid Sand™ nail lacquers featuring a textured, matte finish infused with reflective sparkle fitting the allure surrounding the Bond Girls. In hues of white, pink, blue, purple, gold and coral, Bond Girls offers a range of shimmering shades with the distinctive Liquid Sand finish.
“OPI is extremely excited to partner again with EON Productions,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI co-founder & Artistic Director. “Following the success of the holiday promotion with the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, it’s been a thrill to create colors for the women who’ve captured Bond’s attention over the last five decades.
The colors were announced this morning at a press event in NYC and OPI added a twist by incorporating Shatter with the Liquid Sand colors. Check it out!

Have you been following the drama that transpired after I originally announced the China Glaze & Hunger Games nail polish collaboration? After word of a lawsuit emerged I thought for sure the collection was dead and then I read on Crushable that Lionsgate finally CONFIRMED that the collection is indeed happening but that the theme, and possibly the colors, would change.
Well, thanks to The Hob we now know that while the theme has changed, the colors have not. Phew! I loved the original color palette so I’m happy that is staying the same.
The official name is now the China Glaze “Colours From The Capitol” Collection.
In keeping with the powerful themes and messages of the story, the collection of nail polish will be inspired exclusively by one of the book’s distinct settings—the Capitol of the nation of Panem. Awash in lavish fashion, food, and entertainment, Capitol citizens enjoy extreme cosmetics and body modifications, bold wigs, and outlandish costumes.
Though as a reader of The Hob pointed out, the polish names coincide with the specialties of each district.
Luxe and Lush – District 1 (Luxury)
Stone Cold – District 2 (Masonry)
Riveting – District 3 (Technology)
Hook and Line – District 4 (Fishing)
Electrify – District 5 (Power)
Fast Track – District 6 (Transportation)
Mahogany Magic – District 7 (Lumber)
Dress Me Up – District 8 (Textiles)
Harvest Moon – District 9 (Grain)
Foie Gras – District 10 (Livestock)
Agro – District 11 (Agriculture)
Smoke and Ashes – District 12 (Mining)
Are you as relieved as I am that the collection is NOT dead? What do you think of the new theme and names?
The China Glaze Colours From The Capitol collection releases on March 1st and The Hunger Games premieres on March 23rd. Let the countdown begin!
May the odd be ever in your favor.

On September 8th, CHANEL will debut its preview of Les Jeans De CHANEL, the highly-anticipated nail collection created exclusively by Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, at Fashion’s Night Out events across the country and on chanel.com.
Fashion’s Night Out is less than three weeks away and as news of the various FNO events start to trickle out, I’ve been waiting with anticipation to see how Chanel would top their last two FNO collections: Chanel Jade Nail & Les Khakis de Chanel. Les Jeans de Chanel certainly has me excited and I’ll definitely be stopping by one of the NYC boutiques on September 8th.
I’ve mentioned a few times recently how I’m all about blues for fall and clearly Peter Philips is on the same wavelength. When I spoke with Chanel Celebrity MAN-icurist Tom Bachik a few weeks ago he alluded to some cool nail colors coming our way and he was right. I can’t WAIT to get my paws on these.
Always creating trends that others follow, Peter has developed a trio of blue lacquers, inspired by quintessence of casual chic: denim. A gradation of three shades, the colours range from deep to medium to very pale blue, evocative of the different styles and shades of one of the world’s largest wardrobe staples.
LE VERNIS: Blue Rebel, Blue Boy and Coco Blue.
LES JEANS DE CHANEL will be sold exclusively in CHANEL boutiques and on chanel.com September 8th, 2011 through the end of the month.
So are you into Chanel’s take on denim blues? Are you planning to attend any FNO events?
Stopping by the AII Beauty booth at Cosmoprof North America, the premiere business to business beauty trade show, is like a visual assault. They own so many brands, including China Glaze, that it’s hard to know where to look first.
Thankfully, two of my fave people from the company, Amy & Anne, were there to walk me through. You may remember that eons ago, not really but it seems that long, I had the chance to meet the China Glaze team during a trip to LA. It’s where I got my first glimpse of the best green glitter to ever exist on the planet, China Glaze Emerald Sparkle.
Get ready for your own visual assault courtesy of ALU as I bring you a look at the 34 new China Glaze polishes that will be released between now and January 2012. That’s right, I said 34.
