OPI Coca-Cola 2015 – Icons of Happiness

Even though I cut out pop (yes, I say pop because, Ohio) from my diet over 20 years ago, I’m a die-hard Coca-Cola fan. I used to annoy servers during high school and college by ordering Cherry Cokes, made with grenadine and a cherry, natch. And I still I treat myself to a one when we go to the movies. Our fave movie theater, an AMC with recliners and assigned seats, has a Coca-Cola Freestyle machine that I love playing with to discover new flavor combinations. I’m currently into Vanilla Barq’s.

This year, the Coca-Cola bottle is celebrating its 100th Anniversary. The iconic bottle, given its distinctive curves by The Root Glass Company in Terra Haute, Indiana, is recognizable worldwide. To honor the green-tinted beauty, OPI has paired up once again to release two signature colors. The OPI Coca-Cola 2015 Icons of Happiness collection includes a re-release of some of last year’s shades along with the Two to Celebrate duo.

OPI Soft Shades 2015 Review

Sheers and bridal shades aren’t really my thing. Mainly because I hate the look of my natural nails and need full coverage. However, a couple of the OPI Soft Shades 2015 colors look intriguing in the bottle. And after reader Magda commented earlier this week that she is a fan of the pink glitter, I figured it was time to dive in and give the collection a try.

L’Oreal Dark Sides of Grey

JINsoon X Tess Giberson

As New York Fashion Week begins, I can’t help but lament not being there. Mainly because of all the genius beauty gurus and writer friends I get to see when covering backstage. Jin Soon Choi is one of those people because she is an arbiter of nail fashion and one of the warmest, friendliest people you will ever meet.

So, while I sit here in Cleveland, watching the action from afar, I take some joy in wearing Jin’s latest collection, a fashion collaboration, JINsoon Tess Giberson for Fall 2014. Jin has a knack for delivering finishes that are unique and interesting yet understated and this collection is no exception.

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.
