Mini nail polishes are so adorable, and they’re very economical. You can try out a bunch of colours without having to spend a lot. And if you wind up really liking a particular shade, you can go and get the full-sized version.
(I’ve done that with the OPI La Collection de France! Got the Cafe Cuties mini set, and then rushed out to get a big bottle of both Parlez-Vous OPI? and Louvre Me Louvre Me Not.)
I just love looking at mini bottles all lined up. So cute. And I can’t help but see them as little polish children. Awww! Don’t ever grow up. You’re just so darn adorable!
Here’s some news on the OPI front. In October, they’ll be coming out with 2 limited-edition mini nail-polish sets.
One has a James Bond theme (OPI Bond-ettes), and the other showcases their top 10 best-selling shades (OPI Top Ten). This is just in time for the upcoming gift-giving season.
Come see large promo pictures of each set, and check out the press release sent to me by OPI’s PR.
This will be the first post of two for today…Keep your eyes peeled later this morning for the next one.
Here’s a closer look at the mini nail-polish sets:
Are you a James bond fan? I really like the sultry makeup that the model’s wearing. Classic! I want to sport a red lip like that, and I’m already a huge fan of dark eye liner.

OPI Releases Two New Limited Edition Mini Lacquer Sets for Holiday 2012
OPI celebrates this holiday season with two new mini lacquer sets, the perfect stocking stuffers. Bond-ettes features four shimmery shades from the new limited edition Skyfall lacquers, inspired by the latest installment in the James Bond series. The Top Ten mini kit showcases ten miniature bottles of OPI’s most popular reds, sheers, neutrals and more.
“This holiday season, it’s all about variety! OPI offers a wide array of colors in glamorous, elegant hues to wear for every festive occasion,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “Bond-ettes offers four of the hottest colors from the new Skyfall collection, while The Top Ten mini kit features many of OPI’s greatest hits from over the years. These sets offer new and classic favorites in a variety of shades, making perfect stocking stuffers for all the special women in your lives: mothers, daughters, sisters, friends—and don’t forget about yourself.”
The Bond-ettes mini set features a spectrum of light to dark shimmers: GoldenEye, The Spy Who Loved Me, Live and Let Die, and The World is Not Enough. The Top Ten Mini Kit includes some of OPI’s most well-known colors: Alpine Snow, Bubble Bath, Tickle Me France-y, Kiss Me On My Tulips, Red Lights Ahead…Where?, Big Apple Red, I’m Not Really a Waitress, You Don’t Know Jacques!, Vampsterdam, and Lincoln Park After Dark.
As with all OPI nail lacquers, both The Top Ten and Bond-ettes mini lacquer sets contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde.
These limited edition sets will be available beginning October 2012 at professional salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA. Bond-ettes will be sold for $12.50 ($14.95 CAN) suggested retail, and The Top Ten mini kit will be sold for $24.95 ($29.95 CAN) suggested retail.
I really like using mini nail polishes on my toenails because they have smaller brushes that perfectly fit my Cinderella feet. (Seriously, size 5 feet here!)
