I’m calling the second half of the OPI Nordic collection for Fall 2014, 50 Shades of Tan. Okay, I’m exaggerating but there are a lot of neutrals here. So much so, that they seem better suited for the Wild, Wild, West than the Nordic countries. Granted, I’ve never visited Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway or Sweden so they could be totally on the nose for that part of the world. Let’s take a look!

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.

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.

Hearkening back to a time when women were called “dames,” when Victory Rolls and Veronica Lake waves were all the rage in hair, the Deborah Lippmann Fall 2014 “New York Marquee” collection takes inspiration from the luxe fabrics of the 1940s. Think of the chrometastic Chrysler Building, the glitz of Broadway and silk charmeuse gowns.
