This 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.
OPI I Just Can’t Cope-acabana is from the Brazil Collection, and it’s the most pigmented yellow nail polish I’ve ever worn!
I was very surprised because, going into the painting process, I was expecting to need to use 4 coats. (A lot of yellows I’ve tried in the past need multiple coats to get decent coverage.)
OPI I Just Can’t Cope-acabana only needed 2 medium coats to get the coverage you see in this photo and the other ones in this post! Zero streakiness at this point. Colour me impressed!
P.S. Today is the LAST DAY to enter my OPI Brazil Collection giveaway for Canadians! Be sure to get your entry in by 11:59 pm EST!
A couple of days ago, I shared with you my review on OPI I Love Applause, which is a pale pink from the OPI Muppets Most Wanted Collection.
Although I enjoyed wearing the soft shade solo, I was way too tempted by OPI Let’s Do Anything We Want!, which is from the same collection.
So, what did I decide to do? Anything I wanted! (Haha, I couldn’t resist.)
I layered just a single coat of glitter over the pink base, and I think they played well together. Rather than a contrasting look like what I showed you yesterday using Rainbow Honey XOXO over Zoya Song, these two OPI nail polishes are more similar and complement each other in a softer way.
What do you like more? Contrasting or complementing glitter combinations? (I like both, and it usually depends on my mood when it comes to which one I choose to wear.)
P.S. Remember, Canadians, you still have until February 28 at 11:59 pm EST to enter my OPI Brazil Collection giveaway!
P.P.S. By the way, thank you so much for voting for me in the Nicole by OPI nail-art challenge that I blogged about before. Your support meant so much to me, and I’m already planning a way to give back to my loyal readers again. Stay tuned! You won’t want to miss it! (Although I didn’t win the contest, my readers made me feel like a winner, which is the real prize – THANK YOU!)
Guess what? Today’s post is on OPI I Love Applause, which is from the OPI Muppets Most Wanted Collection!
I’m really excited to bring you this review because, if you’ve been following me on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, you saw over the last few days, I’ve been posting a few sneak-peek photos!
This type of soft shade is very uncharacteristic for me to sport. (You know that I tend to go for the loud ones the most.) However, I’m beginning to appreciate the subtle elegance of these kind of colours on myself as time goes on.
The colour shown in my flash photos actually show the pink best, however, the natural photos help you see the finish a little better.
P.S. You still have until the end of today to vote for me in the nail-art competition I entered. You can tweet and/or retweet the fishtail-braid photo with hashtags #NicoleChallenge and #Mary4Nicole. Please see the full details in the post I published a little while ago about this. As I’m coming to the homestretch, I’d really appreciate your support! Nicole by OPI Canada will announce the winner tomorrow at 5 pm EST.
P.P.S. This is also a friendly reminder that my OPI Brazil Collection Canadian giveaway is still going on (get your entries in!) until February 28 at 11:59 pm EST.
Okay, so you know that I’m all about the bold nail colours, but I can appreciate softer hues, too. In fact, sometimes wearing classy shades is a much-needed and refreshing change.
Recently, I wore OPI Taupe-less Beach, which is from the OPI Brazil Collection that I’m crazy about! (Seriously, if you haven’t tried any of the shades from this collection, you’re missing out on one of the most exciting releases in a long time!)
And if you’re a fellow Canadian, remember to enter for your chance to win the entire OPI Brazil Collection in my giveaway that ends February 28.

I wanted to share this amazing collection with a fellow Canadian, so I reached out to PR and asked if we could team up. (They were more than happy to do so, and I extend my gratitude on behalf of all my Canadian readers for making this possible!)
