The Wizard of Oz is my favourite movie of all time, so when OPI’s PR sent me a press release about the upcoming limited-edition OPI Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful Collection, my heart was racing!
Sure, I’m excited about the movie, but I’m equally curious about the nail polishes. (Of course. The day when I’m no longer excited about lacquer, please check my wrist for a pulse.)
The collection includes OPI Soft Shades plus a brand new Liquid Sand addition! (You know that I went nuts over the Liquid Sands, so seeing another colour is really cool!)
Edit: I’ve posted some actual bottle shots on Instagram. The glitters are really interesting!
There are 6 shades in the OPI Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful Collection plus a new Liquid Sand polish:
- Lights of Emerald City
- Don’t Burst My Bubble
- When Monkeys Fly
- Glints of Glinda
- Which is Witch?
- I Theodora You
- What Wizardry is This?
OPI announces the launch of six limited edition nail lacquers and a new Liquid Sand™ shade, inspired by Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful. With an all-star cast that includes James Franco and Michelle Williams, this highly-anticipated film opens in theaters on March 8, 2013.
“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.”
With a mix of soft crème and warm glitter shades, the line is ideal for layering to create rich, complex looks. In addition to the Liquid Sand nail lacquer in What Wizardry is This?, the promotion includes:
Lights of Emerald City
White confetti adds city girl flair and style to nails.

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.
I thought some of them looked especially cool, so I blew up the images to show you the details.
