OPI Press Release - Magnetics, Pure Lacquer Nail Apps, Holiday Mini Sets, and


OPI celebrates the 50th anniversary of James Bond with the release of three, new magnetic lacquers inspired by the upcoming film Skyfall – the first magnetized colors from OPI. The three hues, gunmetal gray, gold shimmer and rich burgundy, each come with its own unique, specially-designed magnetizer to create striped, diamond or wavy patterns, respectively.  

 “For the first time OPI is launching magnetized lacquers in honor of our exciting partnership with EON Productions,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “Nail design is here to stay, and these limited-edition shades offer a fun, easy way to experiment with lacquer. There are no limits when it comes to having unique, eye-catching nails.”
The three Skyfall Magnetic Lacquer Packs include:
Is That Silva?
Don’t mistake this gunmetal gray for anything else.
A diagonally striped pattern appears with this lacquer.
Bond…James Bond
Be spied in this elegant gold shimmer.
A diamond pattern forms over this shade.
Morning, Moneypenny
You secretly desire this heart-throbbing burgundy.
This lacquer has a dreamy, wave-like pattern.
To use, prep nails like normal, followed by Base Coat and one layer of the magnetic lacquer. Then, apply a second coat of lacquer to the first nail; while still wet, position the finger onto the base of magnetizer placing it down. Press the top down so the magnet rests on the finger above the nail without touching the lacquer. Magnetize for about five seconds for the design to fully develop. Continue this process until all nails are painted and magnetized. Apply Top Coat once nails are dry. 
As with all OPI nail lacquers, these magnetic shades inspired by Skyfall contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application.
This limited edition promotion will be available beginning October 2012 at Professional Salons and spas, for  $21.95 suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer pack, including the magnet.


OPI also adds four new, limited-edition designs to the Pure Lacquer Nail App collection, which offers instant, easy-to-apply nail designs. The precut nail strips are made of 100% real nail lacquer and provide a high-shine finish, long-lasting wear, and zero drying time. The new designs inspired by Skyfall include Nice Tux (silver and black glitter zig zag stripe), Positively Shocking (glittery gold), Floating Dragon (bright red crème with black dragon print) and Shaken Not Stirred (silver with martini glass print).
 “We are pleased to expand our Pure Lacquer Nail App offerings with designs inspired by OPI’s thrilling partnership with EON Productions and Skyfall,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “The popularity of nail design is booming with both the everyday woman and nail professionals. Pure Lacquer Nail Apps provide women with quick, easy and unique nail looks, offering long-lasting designs that could not be created by hand.”
To apply, peel off plastic cover and place Nail Apps on nails, while smoothing down all edges. Each pack contains 16 strips to ensure perfect sizing for all finger and toe nails. File the nail edge to remove any strip excess. Pure Lacquer Nail Apps already contain a base coat and top coat; do not use regular base or top coat with the strips. Simply remove with an acetone polish remover. For longer wear (about two weeks), have a manicurist cure the nail strips with OPI’s GelColor Top Coat.
As with all OPI nail lacquers, Pure Lacquer Nail Apps inspired by Skyfall contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde. This limited edition promotion will be available beginning October 2012 at Professional Salons and spas for the suggested retail price of $14.95  suggested retail for each set.

China Glaze Nail Polish Appliques

Saturday, September 1, 2012 2

Hi Everyone,

Today I have a review on the new China Glaze nail polish appliques.  I have tried appliques before and have had issue with them not fitting my nails...well China Glaze has solved my problem..they use real nail polish to make their appliques!  I can stretch the applique to fit my nail shape. 

The appliques come in a package that looks like this:

This is the Jane Loves Tarzan design

When you open the package you get the appliques, a nail file/buffer, orange cuticle stick, and instructions.

I just followed the instructions by making sure my nails were clean and buffed. Then I applied the appliques like they were stickers and stretched them slightly to fit my nail shape.  Then I filed off the access pieces.

I kept these appliques for 5 days and they didn't tear or peel off. I am really pleased with them...also I had a lot of people grab my fingers and take a look at them :)

These appliques were sent to me for review from nailpolishcananda.com and you can see the entire selection of appliques by China glaze here:  http://www.nailpolishcanada.com/categories/nail-art/nail-polish-strips.html

*The products in this post were sent to me for the purpose of a 100% honest unbiased review.*
