OPI X Gwen Stefani — Pretty Punk Nail Polishes With Plenty Of Attitude

Gwen Stefani is a mix of white peroxide hair, dark eyebrows and red lips. This look hasn’t changed for her in decades. Let me prove my point:

See!

Because she has such a trademark look she can’t just team up with any beauty brand, they have to be pretty credible for her tick of approval. For this reason I’m not overly shocked that her collaboration with OPI is as knockout as it is!

I was lucky enough to be sent shades from this newly released, limited edition range, in three different and revolutionary finishes. OPI is known for having long-wear, salon worthy polishes so I won’t be spending too much time talking about application or longevity – today it’s all about how amazing these polishes look.

I had my stunning friend Elyce, a.k.a Lycie, model the range (she has what I call Disney Princess hands) because I thought she’d be best able to show how gorgeous these really look.

Push & Shove Mirrored Chrome Finish Nail Polish

This stunning polish is by far my favourite from the range. Leave your mirrored compact at home girlies, you’ll almost be able to catch your reflection from this metallic chrome finish.$19.95

Over & Over A-Gwen Nail Polish With Swarovski Elements

opi-red

This is the hero polish from the collaboration which comes in a special boxed kit. Gwen’s signature, ultra timeless, red lipstick inspired this flattering cherry red shade. Eye catching, real Swarovski elements are also included, so you can get crafty and bling out your nails. Start with a slick of OPI’s Lay Down That Base polish then follow up with two coats of this deep cherry red. Once dry, you can arrange the diamantes in any fashion you like. The kit also comes with a few illustrated designs for you incase you’re needing some inspiration. $24.95

Hey Baby Creme Matte Finish Nail Polish

pink-opi

Now this is my kind of pink! This finish is uber glossy making it a very feminine choice. Keep it chic and minimal with two coats (no top coat required for this high-sheen gloss), or layer on a third coat of OPI’s In True Stefani Fashion Glitter Top Coat for extra pizzazz. $19.95

See the whole collection below. All can be picked up at selected Myer and David Jones stores, or take a closer look at OPI’s selected stockists.
