Oz The Great and Powerful by OPI

OPI Oz the Great and PowerfulInspired by Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful, OPI has launched six limited edition nail lacquers and one new Liquid Sand Shade.

“OPI is very excited to take this fantastical journey with Disney,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “Inspired by the magic of Oz The Great and Powerful, this SoftShades collection captures the whimsy seen in the film, from glittery shades packed with white, gold and silvery iridescent confetti – Lights of Emerald City, When Monkeys Fly! and Which is Witch? – to soft neutrals in white, beige and pink – Don’t Burst My Bubble, Glints of Glinda and I Theodora You.

“The new Liquid Sand nail lacquer – What Wizardry is This? – features OPI’s groundbreaking technology for a textured, matte finish infused with reflective sparkle,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “This rich taupe hue was designed for James Franco’s character, the great Wizard of Oz, and is sure to make a bold statement this spring.”

In the past, I wasn’t a big fan of glittery shades but playing with these lacquers and trying different combinations of a base color with some glittery on top has made me a fan.

I’m also a big fan of neutral shades for those times when I just want some subtle shine on my nails.  It’s only in the past six months or so that I’ve worn polish on my fingernails full time so I’m definitely learning what I do and don’t like.  OPI has been an excellent brand to partner with for my nail lacquer education and experimentation!

OPI Oz the Great and Powerful

Lights of Emerald City – White confetti adds city girl flair and style to nails.
Don’t Burst My Bubble – Don’t wake me…I’m dreaming about puffy clouds of white.
Glints of Glinda – Only a good witch could turn beige from meek to chic.
I Theodora You – This adorable, sheer pink is bewitching on you.
What Wizardry Is This – Liquid Sand nail lacquer in a rich taupe hue.
Which is Witch? – Is this silver glitter with iridescent sparkle or the other way around?
When Monkeys Fly! – I’m simply bananas for this gold confetti.
Lights of Emerald City – White confetti adds city girl flair and style to nails.

While I wear nail lacquer more in the past year than I have in the ten years before that, I still have times when I can’t decide on a color or am feeling rather blah about what’s going on at the time.  The lighter hues in like Don’t Burst My Bubble, Glints of Glinda and I Theodora You are perfect for weeks when you want something light and pretty on your nails.  Of course, when you feel like being a little more glam, the remaining lacquer colors are perfect!  Lights of Emerald City is gorgeous layered with I Theodora You.

As with all OPI nail lacquers, the shades inspired by Oz The Great and Powerful 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 March 2013 at Professional Salons and Spas for $10.95 CAN suggested retail for each nail lacquer.  OZ The Great and Powerful will be in theaters March 8th!
