Zoya Nail Polish Exchange 2014

Zoya Nail Polish Exchange 2014Earth Day is coming up next week, and while you may be doing lots of environmentally friendly things all year long, you might want to participate in the Zoya Nail Polish Exchange, which starts April 21st and ends April 28 at 11:59 EDT.

I’m posting this a bit earlier, so that over the weekend, you can put together your nail-polish list! ;)

This special promotion is available for residents of the United States only. Although I’m Canadian, I still wanted to share this with my American readers because it’s a pretty cool offer.

Check out the rest of this post to find out how you can get 50% off Zoya nail polishes, while getting rid of your old, unwanted, non-Zoya nail polishes!

Neons by OPI & Put a Coat On! Press Release & Promo Pictures

Neons by OPI & OPI Put a Coat On 2014The spring weather seems to be slowly but surely creeping up on us, and I’m all for it! (Warm weather, I welcome you with a cup of iced tea!)

So maybe a little colour therapy will let the remnants of Old Man Winter’s chilly weather leave in peace.

The Neons by OPI Collection contains 6 vivid shades that’ll be available in full-size bottles and in a cute mini set starting this May!

Additionally, they’ll be releasing the OPI Put a Coat On!, which is a white base coat designed to up the Wow Factor of a neon nail polish.

I whipped together a photo showing all the new shades so you can better determine which ones will be ‘jumping into your shopping cart’. ;)

I could never get tired of neons, so I’m very much looking forward to trying the shades and the OPI Put a Coat On! base coat. And, as usual, I’ll share my in-depth review and swatches of the ones I wear as full manicures!

P.S. I’m a little embarrassed to admit that the reason why I missed writing and scheduling a blog post for Tuesday was because I got all worked up watching the exciting head-to-head NCAA National Championship game on Monday night. I was so tired afterwards, I literally went to bed to “take a short nap”, but I ended up falling asleep and waking up with barely enough time to get ready for work! (Did any of you watch the game?)

OPI Ford Mustang Collection Press Release & Promo Picture

OPI Ford Mustang CollectionThis is the very latest coming down the OPI pipeline!

Ford Mustang will be celebrating their 50th anniversary in April, and they’ve teamed up with OPI to come out with a nail-polish collection.

Although I’m not a car buff (not by any stretch of the imagination, even), I’m still excited about this upcoming collaboration because it breaks down some gender stereotypes.

In this day and age, women are more independent than ever before, and I always find it refreshing to see women in dominant and adventurous roles. There’s nothing wrong with traditional feminine roles, but, like people in general, women are all different. It’s great to see the diversity and the woman power!

In this blog post, you’ll more information regarding the upcoming OPI Ford Mustang Collection that will be released in July 2014.

This is all the information I have, but if there’s anything new, I’ll either update this post or I’ll create a new post depending on how much new information there is to add.

Nicole by OPI Roughles Collection Press Release & Promo Pictures

Nicole by OPI Roughles CollectionThere has been a lot of nail news coming down the pipe, hasn’t there?

Well, just when you thought it stopped, I’m here to say (like Ron Popeil), “But wait! There’s more!”

No, I’m not going to promise you a free set of knives or tell you about a rotisserie that lets you ‘set it and forget it’. ;)

Instead, I have something way cooler – the Nicole by OPI Roughles Collection press release!

It includes 4 textured nail polish that have a speckled appearance, which reminds me of dinosaur eggs. Very interesting! And since they’re light shades, they remind me of Easter eggs.

Haha, the name of this collection, Roughles, is pronounced as “Ruffles”! I was hungry while preparing this blog post, so when I thought of Ruffles, images of flavoured potato chips sprung instantly to mind. (I hope I didn’t get any drool on the keyboard!) ;)

What’s your favourite flavour of Ruffles chips? (I really like All Dressed.)

P.S. Remember, you can still vote for me daily until February 25 in the Nicole by OPI challenge I entered. Click the link to learn more about how you can vote for me on Twitter and see the nail art I painted.

P.P.S. Also, don’t forget to enter my nail-polish giveaway, Canadians! Until February 28, enter for your chance to win the entire OPI Brazil Collection! (Multiple entries are possible. See the post for details.)

OPI Muppets Most Wanted Collection Press Release & Promo Pictures

OPI Muppets Most Wanted CollectionHappy Valentine’s Day, everyone!

Will you be my nail Valentine today? ;) (Psst, just a little heads up. I’ll be having a huge nail-polish giveaway for Canadians really soon, and you won’t want to miss it. Stay tuned for details!)

Now onto the star of today’s blog post – the OPI Muppets Most Wanted Collection, which officially hits stores this March!

I’m really excited to wear all of these colours, but especially Kermit Me to Speak because it looks like a duochrome from the promo picture. Also, I can’t wait to wear Miss Piggy’s Big Number. And since I’m curious about wearing more nudes, Chillin’ Like a Villain piques my interest.

Which ones are you most excited about?

Little Swatch And Learn Tidbit: The OPI Muppets Most Wanted Collection really tugs on my heartstrings because it reminded me that the very first press release I ever posted on the blog was for the OPI The Muppets Holiday Collection back in August 2011! It was the first time that I got the chance to collaborate with OPI’s amazing PR team. Whoa, I can hardly believe it’s been so long already! (And I still remember wearing and reviewing OPI Rainbow Connection very clearly!)
