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!

The China Glaze Crinkled Chrome collection makes me think  of those 80′s Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup commercials. “You got your texture in my chrome! You got your chrome in my texture!”

Essentially, China Glaze has engaged their feather, texture and chrome finish nail polishes in a ménage à trois to create Crinkled Chrome. It’s a bit funky, a bit futuristic and unlike anything any other brand is doing in the texture game.

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.

OPI San Francisco for Fall 2013 Silver & Reds Nail Polish Swatches & Review

As I’ve come to tell you, multiple times, over the years, red nail polish and I just aren’t friends. I guess we’re more like frenemies in that I’ll wear it but it’s not like my BFF who I want to hang out with all the time. However, the boyfriend LOVES red and hey, it’s not all about me (just mainly about me). And there are some red shades that suck me in.

Case in point, the second half of the OPI San Francisco collection. While I was naturally drawn to the first half of the OPI San Francisco collection due to my love of blue, I found a few keepers  in the land of red.
