I’m really excited to be able to bring you an early look at the upcoming Nicole by OPI Selena Gomez Collection!
It’s due out in stores January 2013, but, after I met and had dinner with Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, the Executive VP and Artistic Director of OPI and Nicole by OPI, the awesome PR ladies included the entire collection in my ‘swag bag’!
Haha, it’s good that Selena Gomez got her own line of polishes. After all, Justin Bieber has his own Nicole by OPI nail polishes!
So, instead of showing you the usual promo pictures, I actually can show you photos I took of the actual bottles. (I’ll also include the official press release.)
You may or may not know, but I don’t actually ‘swatch’ polishes. I wear the colours as full manicures for at least a day and often longer. I only use the term ‘swatch’ because it’s the familiar lingo.
And I prefer to showcase each shade in its own blog post so that I can go into a lot of detail. If you’re looking for a single blog post with all the shades at a glance, other bloggers do an incredible job of that! It’s just not my style.
However, because PR was thoughtful enough to include some nail ‘wheels’ that were painted with the polish already, I took photos of them (with my camera’s flash) to give you a better idea of what it looks like on a nail. (Stay tuned for my future review posts where I’ll be wearing each colour and showing you photos of my manicures in various lighting.)
The colours in the Nicole by OPI Selena Gomez Collection are:

Starring Selena Gomez!
Nicole by OPI Announces Partnership with
Singing Sensation Selena Gomez for 2013
Nicole by OPI announces the launch of 14 new nail lacquers inspired by actress and singer Selena Gomez. The line features shades designed to capture Selena’s sweet yet spunky personality, from soft pink and peach hues to bright glitter and confetti lacquers.
“Selena is an ideal partner for Nicole by OPI. Millions of fans love her for the same reasons we do; she’s smart, talented, funny – and has an incredible sense of style,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “She has that classic ‘girl-next-door’ appeal, but she’s also edgy and fun – just like the Nicole consumer.
“Selena is not only a chart-topping singer and actress, she’s also a clothing designer and an active philantropist,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “Like women around the globe, Selena has many interests and passions; this collection, with its diverse range of hues, offers a perfect match for every occasion!”
