A couple of days ago I was in Stockholm for a press release of some OPI news. The event was held at the super fancy Grand Hotel and it was so much fun to see all the news and to meet other bloggers and instagrammers. The event had a true American theme and three big news were presented.
The presentation of the news was held by Ulrica from GoodPR. The first news to be presented were two new top coats. The first one is OPI Plumping Top Coat which gives your nails a plumped gel-like look with a long-lasting, high-shine finish. The second top coat is the OPI Brilliant Top Coat which gives your nails a long-lasting, super shiny finish. These top coats will be in Swedish stores in late July and they will cost 205 SEK each.
The next news to be presented was the OPI fall/winter 2016 collection called Washington DC. The actress Kerry Washington is OPIs new creative ambassador and she has been involved in designing this collection. The colors are right up my alley and I can’t wait to try all of these! Even though the summer has barely started, this collection makes me long for fall. There are 15 polishes altogether, whereof three are limited edition – Inside the ISABELLEtway, Kerry Blossom and ”Liv” in the Gray. The OPI Washington DC collection will be in stores in late August and the polishes will cost 155 SEK each. There will be two different sets of mini polishes, one containing the three limited edition polishes and one containing We the Female, Pale to the Cheif, CIA = Color is Awesome and Never a Dulles Moment.
The last news was the OPI Infinite Shine collection which finally will be launched in Sweden. This collection is a gel-hybrid system, meaning that the polishes gives a gel-like finish but you don’t need a lamp to cure it and you can remove the polish with ordinary nail polish remover. The polish should be applied in a three step way – start with applying the Infinite Shine primer, then apply the color in thin coats and lastly the Infinite Shine Gloss. Let each coat dry before applying the next and wait a little bit longer (approximately 2 minutes) before applying the top coat. By following these steps you will get a high-shine manicure that lasts for 7-10 days. The Infinite Shine polishes will be in Swedish stores and at salons sometime during the summer and they will cost 179 SEK each.
After all three news were presented it was time for some mingle and nail art. The lovely girls at Newly Polished and Mllr Design painted nails using the OPI Washington DC collection. You should definitely check out there blogs and Instagrams if you haven’t already!
When it was time to leave the event I received an amazing goodiebag containing the whole Washington DC collection, the two new top coats and six polishes from the Infinite Shine collection (the ones shown above) plus the Infinite Shine primer and gloss. Thank you so much OPI Sweden for a lovely event and for the very generous goodiebag!
