Obsession of the Day: Gwen Stefani for OPI Nail Lacquer Collection


The nail polish masters at OPI recently released a collection with my favorite person ever, Gwen Stefani. I have adored her since about the 4th grade when I first discovered No Doubt. (Tragic Kingdom was literally the first album I ever purchased – and to this day it’s one of my favorites. I still belt a mean “Just a Girl” in the shower.)

She exudes beauty and awesomeness in addition to being a major player in both the music industry and the fashion world, so she’s an obvious choice for this sort of collaboration.

The collection features seven new limited edition nail lacquers for 2014, featuring standout color in breakthrough finishes. Highlights from the collection include a bold red lacquer that pays homage to Gwen’s signature lipstick, a new semi-matte satin finish in shades of gold and black, and a mirrored chrome paired with a special base coat. The collection also features an assortment of minis to try before you buy the full size lacquers.

Inspired by the 2013 Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala that featured the theme “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” OPI Executive VP and Artistic Director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann decided to create a collection of lacquer celebrating the role of music as a major influence in fashion. I LOVE it. See below for the shades!

Get the Look: Emmy Rossum’s Starry Night Inspired Mani by Butter London

0212f3b8852511e3a1e80a50b3739fdc_8 I am all about fun, easy nail art. If we are on the same page, I think you will love this simple yet stylish nail design by butter LONDON Global Colour Ambassador, Katie Jane Hughes. She took inspiration from Van Gogh to lacquer up Emmy Rossum’s fingertips with this funky mani.

Here’s how to get the look:

  • Katie began by applying butter LONDON’s Patent Gel Top & Tails for a chip-free and long lasting wear.
  • Katie then applied two coats of butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Royal Navy, followed by a layer of Nail Lacquer in Leccy.
  • To add more dimension to the nail, Katie then used saran wrap to speckle butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Diamond Geezer over the nail.
  • The look was finished with the Patent Gel Top & Tails and a dab of butter LONDON Handbag Holiday Cuticle Oil.
  • Tada!
