Another day, another celebrity nail polish collaboration.
OPI has teamed with Gwen Stefani on a line of lacquers inspired by the No Doubt frontwoman’s signature punk rock-meets-Harajuku-girl style.
The Gwen Stefani by OPI collection will feature seven limited-edition shades, including Over & Over A-Gwen – a bold red “that pays homage to Gwen’s signature lipstick” – Hey Baby, In True Stefani Fashion, 4 in the Morning, and Love.Angel.Music.Baby. Other colors include semi-matte satin gold, mirrored chrome, and glitter.
“With her expertise as a singer, songwriter and designer, who better to collaborate with than Gwen Stefani?” OPI executive vice president and artistic director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann said in a press release. “Known for her trademark red lips, bold eye makeup and nail art, Gwen uses beauty to accessorize her style.”
Weiss-Fischmann says she and Stefani – who launched her L.A.M.B. fashion label in 2003 – drew inspiration from the “Punk: Chaos to Couture” theme of this year’s Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute gala to create a collection of nail polishes “as dramatic, diverse, and glamorous as its namesake,” with “elements of haute couture and street fashion.”
Stefani’s signature red shade will only be sold as part of a set that will also include nail art decorations – crystals, metallic studs, etc. – from Swarovski Elements. Individual polish colors will retail for $9 and are expected to arrive at Dillard’s, JCPenney, ULTA and other retailers in early January 2014.
