While I’m saving my Hallowe’en nail-art tutorials for October, that doesn’t mean that I can stay tight-lipped about Hallowe’en stuff in general. You know that it’s one of my favourite holidays! 🙂
Since the first press release I posted on Swatch And Learn got a warm reception, I’ve decided to share the latest OPI Hallowe’en 2011 press release with you just in case you haven’t seen it yet.
This year there are two sets available: OPI Pair’em Scare’em and OPI Spookettes!
What am I looking forward to the most? The green glow-in-the-dark Zom-Body to Love, of course! (And what an awesome name!)
But I also think the mini bottles are really cute and collectible. I have a bunch of mini sets from previous collections. They’re good value and an excellent way to test out colours that you either don’t want to commit to or you just don’t need a full-size bottle of. But keep in mind that the brushes are also tiny. (This may be a plus if you have small nails!)
Keep reading to see larger photos of both of these sets.Up first, we have OPI Spookettes:
(Check out my swatches and review of the OPI Spookettes set here!)
If you’re just getting into nail art, I think the mini set is great because you’ll get black and white polishes, which you’ll find yourself using a lot to create eyes.
And then there’s OPI Pair’em Scare’em, which has full-sized bottles:
In case you’re curious, check out my OPI Black Shatter swatches and review that I’ve previously posted on Swatch And Learn to see what a cool effect it creates!
Here’s the official OPI press release:
Look Frighteningly Fashionable with OPI!
No Tricks, Just Treats with New OPI Halloween Nail Lacquers
Celebrate the scariest day of the year with OPI’s Halloween-inspired nail lacquers, available in two promotional gifts sets. For a limited time only, OPI will offer the new Spook-ettes mini pack, which includes four mini lacquers: He’s My Boo (a scary orange), Mummy Knows Best (a spook-tacular white), I Only Date Werewolves (a bewitching black) and Zom-Body to Love (a glow-in-the-dark green).
The Spook-ettes mini pack also includes free nail decals, along with instructions on how to create different nail art designs using the lacquers and stickers. For example, create a two-toned look with “Jack-in-the-Moon,” featuring a grinning face in a white full moon on a black nail, or go bold with “Welcome to Spider’s Corner,” showcasing a creepy-crawler layered over a bright orange hue.
Additionally, the Pair’em Scare’em duo pack will bring Zom-Body to Love and OPI’s bestselling Black Shatter together in a hair-raising pair. Inspired by graffiti art, Shatter leaves behind a crackled, two-texture finish when painted over completely dry OPI nail lacquer. Paint Shatter over two coats of Zom-Body to Love and add a top coat for a one-of-a-kind, glow-in-the-dark manicure.
“Halloween motivates us to express wild, imaginative concepts through hair, makeup, nails and costumes,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “The Spook-ettes and Pair’em Scare’em lacquers allow consumers to get fun and creative with our Halloween colors by pairing them with themed nail decals or adding the captivating shatter effect.”
OPI products contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application.
Spook-ettes ($16.95 CAN) and the Pair’em Scare’em duo pack ($20.95 CAN) will be retailed at Professional Salons and Spas.
