Reasons to be excited for the New Year? Here’s your first: launching in January 2014, music and fashion icon Gwen Stefani will launch seven limited edition lacquers with OPI. The avant-garde style icon’s collection is one of the driving forces behind our desire to save a little money for a shopping spree of our own once the holidays are over. Yeah, we want all seven Gwen Stefani for OPI nail polishes, and you probably will to. Nevertheless, we put together a “”What Your Fave Gwen Stefani OPI Nail Polish Says About You” guide to help you narrow down your top picks.
Over & Over A-Gwen
Colour/Finish: signature Gwen Stefani red.
What It Says About You: You’re a walking conundrum – a timeless beauty who also has the most avant-garde sense of style in the room. You’re one part Old Hollywood glamourous and one part new wave punk princess. It doesn’t hurt that Over & Over A-Gwen is available in a boxed set, which includes Swarovski black crystals and silver, gold and pewter studs in bar, square, diamond and circle shapes for putting your own spin on nail designs like a true artist.
4 in the Morning
Colour/Finish: semi-matte black
What It Says About You: You’re a rebel who’s not afraid to go against the grain and avoid the pack. You do your own thing in life and while the spotlight might not be your goal, you always tend to get it anyway.
In True Stefani Fashion
Colour/Finish: hollagraphic silver glitter
What It Says About You: You are a “seize the day” type of gal with a “glass is half full” attitude mixed with an energy worthy of the Studio 54 dancefloor. You don’t see why every single day shouldn’t be an opportunity to have fun. Drawing a little extra attention to yourself has never bothered you, and your friends rely on you more than they’d like to admit for being the life of the party.
Colour/Finish: hot pink glossy crème lacquer
What I Says About You: In some ways, you’re just a girl… a girl who embraces her feminity but still uses her strong-minded approach to life to get everything she wants and more. So what if pink is your favourite colour? You love kittens too, but that doesn’t make you any less badass.
I Sing in Color
Colour/Finish: deep blackberry in glossy crème lacquer
What It Says About You: You’re mature, worldly and sophisticated. You’re comfortable in your skin and with your style more than ever before.
Colour/Finish: gray-gold semi-matte satin
What It Says About You: You’re adventurous and low maintenance. You’re always ready to jump at whatever opportunity for excitement comes your way, whether it by a night out at the opera or a last-minute road trip to Big Sur. This nail polish is a versatile as you and can be worn with or without a top coat.
Push and Shove
Colour/Finish: a bold chrome hue
What It Says About You: You might seem slightly on the high maintenance side to someone who doesn’t have your refined sense of style. You’re always creating your own looks and finding new ways to invent yourself and update your ideas of beauty. You’re inspired by everything from international travels to icons of the past. Just like you, Push and Shove requires attention to detail. This nail polish needs a special complimentary base coat, Lay Down that Base, before you apply two thin coats of Push and Shove for an amazing mirrored finish.
