Big news! Gwen Stefani and Suzi Weiss-Fischmann of OPI have teamed up to make a dynamic collaboration collection to be released this coming January! This collection features 5 polishes inspired by Gwen Stefani in what OPI is calling “Breakthrough Finishes” Two of the polishes will be a “satin” finish (which I believe will be something like half-matte with some sheen left to it), two will be “creme glosses” (maybe similar to their “sorbet-like finish” of the Texas Collection coral color Guy Meets Galveston?) and the last will be a sparkly glitter topper. There will also be a 6th color, which has been named (it’s called Push and Shove) but the color has yet to be released. Executive VP of OPI Suzi Weiss-Fischmann describes the collection as follows:
“OPI wanted to create a collection as dramatic, diverse and glamorous as its namesake. With crème and glitter hues, new satin matte texture, a mirrored chrome and SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, Gwen Stefani by OPI presents the latest in pigments and finishes, while combining elements of haute couture and street fashion.”

In addition to these amazing shades, OPI will also be releasing a signature Gwen Stefani LE red, called Over & Over A-Gwen, which will be packaged and sold similarly to the gold leaf topcoats that have been released for the James Bond Winter 2012 and the Mariah Carey Winter 2013 holiday collection. The box will include the limited edition polish, and nail studs and gems to punk-ify your manicure just like Gwen Stefani herself!
There will also be a special base coat released with the special colors Over & Over A-Gwen and Push and Shove, called Lay Down That Base. While OPI has not specifically stated what the purpose of this is, I’m interested in seeing how this base coat varies from their standard fare.
So what do you think of this upcoming collection? Are you excited to try out these new colors? I’m super intrigued about the glitter In True Stefani Fashion, but then again, I’m a HUGE glitter fan! This collection is currently scheduled to be released to the public in January of 2014, so stay tuned for more details!
