OPI Launches the San Francisco Collection
For Fall/Winter 2013

San Francisco by OPI brings street chic style with West Coast flair to nails and toes for Fall/Winter 2013. This new collection features a palette ranging from sky and sea-colored hues of blues and gray to reds, burgundies and browns inspired by some of the city’s most iconic elements – Chinatown, the Golden Gate bridge and the Embarcadero. This fall mélange is mixed with texture, seen in three new Liquid Sand™ nail lacquers in earthy hues of taupe, blue and gray: It’s All San Andreas’s Fault, Wharf! Wharf! Wharf! and Alcatraz…Rocks. Liquid Sand lacquers dry to a textured, matte finish, infused with reflective sparkle. 
“To me, the women of San Francisco and the city itself really epitomize today’s multifaceted beauty consumer,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  “San Francisco offers a European flair with distinct West Coast attributes. These elements inspired a collection of urban chic nail lacquer shades, thanks to the sophisticated combination of high fashion and eclectic street style.
“With twelve colors ranging from moody grays and blues to garnet and ruby jewel tones, these lacquers are designed to accessorize fall’s hottest looks, from military details to winter whites,” continues Weiss-Fischmann. “On fall runways, models were seen wearing luxurious textures from head to toe. The three new Liquid Sand nail lacquers incorporate the texture trend through nails, with rich matte finishes in colors to complement the season’s fashion.”
San Francisco by OPI includes the following shades:
A-Piers to Be Tan
I shore do like this chocolaty tan.

Dining al Frisco
Just feast your eyes on this fresh-air blue!

Haven’t the Foggiest
Can’t tell you why I love this misty gray...I just do!

Peace & Love & OPI
This holographic sage and eggplant is far out!

Keeping Suzi at Bay
There’s no holding back this assertive navy blue.

Incognito in Sausalito
You better keep this almost-black blue under wraps.

Lost on Lombard
Oh garn-et! I’m all turned around!

I Knead Sour-Dough
Are you bready to wear this toasty warm brown?

Muir Muir on the Wall
This trailblazing plum is the fairest of all.

In the Cable Car-Pool Lane
Good golly, Miss Trolley, this rich burgundy takes me away!

Embarca-Dare Ya!
Betcha can’t pass up this marvelous magenta.

First Date at the Golden Gate
You and me and this shimmery ruby make three.

It’s All San Andreas’s Fault
I’d move mountains to get this textured earthy taupe!

Wharf! Wharf! Wharf!
Dog-gone it...fetch me that textured matte blue!

Alcatraz...Rocks
There’s no escaping this arresting textured gray.

Clinique unveils a colourful nail innovation.
Introducing NEW A Different Nail Enamel
for Sensitive Skins

THE FACTS
Did you know a person touches their eyes on average 200 times a day? With all that contact with hands and fingers throughout the day, there are many culprits that can irritate the eyes. Did you know that nail enamel can cause irritation and even contact dermatitis on the susceptibly thin skin around the eye? Amongst the dermotological community, nail enamel is also considered a significant allergen source for periorbital dermatitis—a facial rash that develops around the upper and lower eyelids. People who suffer from these conditions often do not realise the connection between touching and rubbing the eye area and fresh manicures.

THE SOLUTION
As an allergy tested and 100% fragrance free cosmetic brand, Clinique scientists challenged themselves to develop a nail enamel formulated to minimise unwanted reactions to the nails and skin and eyes.
Six years in the making, Clinique introduces a pioneering innovation to the nail enamel industry: NEW A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins is formulated to minimise skin sensitivity. It is dermatologist tested, ophthalmologist tested and appropriate for sensitive skins and sensitive eyes. 

Clinique conducted extensive research to ensure that A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins meets Clinique’s standards of utmost quality. In fact, three years of research and three years of product development stand behind A Different Nail Enamel for Senstive Skins. The final revolutionary formula was tested for one month on women with sensitive skin and sensitive eyes. 

The formula is beautifully balanced to maintain a high shine and streak free application. It is quick drying and available in a wide colour variety, including a few of Clinique’s iconic hues and seasonal, trend setting shades. The high gloss finish is chip resistant for seven days of wear when used in tandem with A Different Nail Enamel Base and Top Coat for Sensitive Skins. 

Clinique’s new nail enamel also makes at-home application easy. An exceptionally designed thin, flat brush allows for a controlled spread of saturated colour to glide easily and evenly across the nail bed. 

THE COLOURS
12 shades in a rainbow array of go-to colours make up the permanent Clinique nail enamel collection including:






9 limited edition shades will also be offered for Summer 2013 including:





THE INSPIRATION
Let these cute and clever shade names transport you to a different time and frame of mind….
Black Honey: Clinique’s iconic, fan favourite Almost Lipstick shade is now for nails and richer than ever.

Concrete Jungle, Indie Rock & Made of Steel: an array of metallic greys reflect modern, edgy and contemporary style.

Limited edition shades Splish Splash, Summer in the City, Pinkini, 70° and Sunny: popsicles, warm weather and beach time…all in a nail colour.

NEW A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins is dermatologist tested, ophthalmologist tested and formulated for sensitive skins.
NEW A DIFFERENT NAIL ENAMEL FOR SENSITIVE SKINS, 9ml

RRP £12.00 / €16.00 

Available exclusively online at www.clinique.co.uk from the 25th April 2013

GETTING DOWN TO THE NITTY GRITTY

China Glaze® Introduces Texture: the Newest Technology in Nail Lacquer


Los Angeles (April 2013): China Glaze® introduces Texture, a unique new lacquer that applies as a crème but dries with a 3D texture effect. Unlike traditional nail art techniques that require multiple steps, Texture only requires one step—painting the nail.  Texture dries matte, but can be combined with China Glaze® Fast Forward Top Coat for a glossy effect. With a finish similar to that of a sugared rim, Texture is the perfect accessory for a beach day, night-on-the-town, or special rendezvous.

In The Rough— light lime-green with textured grit
Itty, Bitty & Gritty— melon with textured grit
Of Coarse!— bright, cobalt-blue with textured grit
Unrefined— bright pink with textured grit
Bump & Grind— hot pinkish-red with textured grit
Toe-tally Textured— tangerine-orange with textured grit


The China Glaze® Texture collection will be available in May 2013 at fine salons and beauty supply stores nationwide.

“A matte finish can be worn over any OPI nail lacquer shade and should be applied after the base coat and primary coats of color to give nails a unique look,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Artistic Director. “Using Matte Top Coat to transform any shade in your collection makes it a more versatile and budget-friendly way to embrace the matte trend. Give your favorite lacquers an update with a new finish without altering the color.”
Matte Top Coat contains no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde. This product includes OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application.
OPI Matte Top Coat will be available April 2013, at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, jcp Salons, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $9.00 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail.

Little BU®; nail polish: for sweetly sophisticated little girls

The girls are getting their own nail polish – Little BU®; a safe, and sassy range for little fingers that like to accessorise with a touch of colour!


Native New Yorker, Patricia Dente-Haimes, who has over 15 years experience working for the world’s most exciting beauty brands, has taken the coolest bits from the Big Apple’s trend for mini manis and pedis for girls, and put them into a smart debut range of eight classic to cool polishes. All sweetly named after their own preciously chic characters, like Cecilia a pretty sheer pink, Sofia a deep, shimmering purple and Chloe the pearly, twinkling mauve – add to that a Top Coat to keep them that way for longer.

Select from three modern effects - the new crystallised, pretty and pearlized and a high shine super gloss! Little BU®; is all style and no harsh solvents. The non-toxic, waterbased formula is chemical-, odour- and cruelty-free. Free from the big three – DBP, Formaldehyde and Toluene – Little BU®; nail polishes are even safe if your little girl (and expectant mothers!) can’t kick the nail biting habit. Designed for smaller hands, the 9ml bottle makes it easy to apply pops of super safe and super cool colour. With the smart ‘splash and spill’ formula the polishes will also easily wash out of clothes. Drying in just two minutes, Little BU®; can either be washed off, or, if two coats are applied plus the sealing top coat, it can be easily taken off with a dab of remover.

Founder, Patricia Dente-Haimes says, “Girls love to play with their Mummy’s polishes, so Little BU™ provides a safe, non-toxic, washoff alternative for little ladies who just want to have fun and express themselves with colour.”

With new on-trend colour introductions each season, Little BU™ nail polish is the new luxe way for little ladies to tiptoe into the beauty world and easily accessorise with a touch of colour!

Illamasqua is introducing two new shades and is bringing back Raindrops!

You may have heard about two gorgeous new Illamasqua blues, Cameo and Noble - both fresh, bright blues to add to their cult nail collection. If you can choose a favourite between the two of them I'll be very impressed, as I just can't make my mind up! Both launched over the weekend on www.illamasqua.com

Illamasqua were thrilled when Christine over at Temptalia.com rated them A and A+ varnishes "The glossiness is really impressive; it’s just so shiny and glossy; it just looks really elegant and polished.  I typically get anywhere from a week to a week and a half of wear out of Illamasqua’s formula.  It wears exceptionally well in my experience and is a go-to formula when I travel, because it never chips on me."



They are also REALLY excited to announce that we are bringing Raindrops back! You may remember Raindrops from it's origins as one of three Illamasqua Nail Varnish Competition winning varnishes back in 2010. It was a Limited Edition varnish and has since escalated to cult status online, fetching upwards of £60 on Ebay! Well, Illamasqua listened to your feedback [and some of you have been very vocal!] and is bringing it back early 2013...

"I love the idea behind this polish and the picture that was its inspiration. Raindrops on a window on a grey rainy day. I actually like these days but when I am at home with a cup of tea and a delicious cake :) Whenever I look at Illamasqua Raindrops it reminds me of such days. The colour is a light grey with flecks of silver."- Pixiwoo

COLOR + TOP COAT = ENDLESS CREATIVITY

China Glaze® Introduces Tranzitions Color Changing Collection

Los Angeles, CA – (November 2012): There’s nail art and then there’s China Glaze® nail couture.  Reverse French manicure, half moons, ombre, basket weave, dots or racing stripes: nail designs are intricate and multi-colored.  China Glaze® introduces a new way to get multi-color, unique nail art with fewer bottles of polish with the new color-changing Tranzitions collection!

 China Glaze® Tranzitions’ revolutionary new nail lacquer reacts when a clear top coat is applied, changing the color from one shade to another for a stunning effect.  Wear any of the six beautiful, color-shifting shades alone, or allow your creativity to run wild and create intricate nail designs by applying a top coat all over or strategically.  Try different looks using nail art brushes, free-hand designs or nail guides.  Because each shade changes color, you get two lacquers in one, creating an entirely new look with just one swipe.

The China Glaze® Tranzitions collection features six shades, though with the color transition, you get 12 unique shades including:

·         Split Perso-NAIL-ity – Dusty pink shifts to fuchsia
·         Duplicityy – Mint green shifts to vibrant teal
·         Modify Me – Periwinkle blue shifts to indigo blue
·         Altered Reality – Teal blue shifts to turquoise
·         Metallic Metamorphosis – Silvery grey shifts to bluish-charcoal grey
·         Shape Shifter – Smokey violet shifts to dark purple






 
How It Works:
Step 1: Apply a base coat.
Step 2: Apply two coats of China Glaze® Tranzitions shade of choice.  Allow to completely dry.
Step 3: Lastly, apply one coat of clear top coat such as China Glaze® Fast Forward and watch the color change right before your eyes.

For more nail design ideas, click here to view the China Glaze® Tranzitions video.

The China Glaze® Tranzitions collection will be available in January 2013 at fine salons and beauty supply stores.

China Glaze is free of DBP, toluene, and added formaldehyde, and is never tested on animals.

China Glaze nail lacquers are available through salons and professional beauty supply stores nationwide. For more information, please visit www.chinaglaze.com or follow China Glaze on Facebook (@ChinaGlaze), Twitter (@ChinaGlazeOfficial) and Pinterest (pinterest.com/chinaglaze).

OPI Announces Collaboration with Multi-Platinum Selling International Superstar Mariah Carey
LOS ANGELES – August 10, 2012 – OPI Products Inc. announced a collaboration today with multiple Grammy Award winning and multi-platinum selling recording artist Mariah Carey. A five-time Grammy Award winning global superstar with over 200 million records sold worldwide and 18 Billboard No. 1 singles (more than any solo artist in history), Carey will be the inspiration for a line of OPI limited edition nail lacquers that will launch January 2013.
OPI is thrilled to work with Mariah, an industry icon who loves nails and considers lacquer one of her favorite accessories,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “With her magnetic personality both on and off the stage, Mariah serves as a great inspiration for beautiful, bold colors.”
About Mariah Carey:
With a distinct five-octave vocal range, prolific songwriting and producing talent, Carey has defined the modern pop performance. As a singer/songwriter/producer, she has been recognized with five Grammy Awards, nine American Music Awards, Billboard’s “Artist of the Decade” Award, the World Music Award for “World’s Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium,” and BMI’s “Icon Award” to name a few. Mariah has written seventeen out of her eighteen Billboard No. 1 singles and has two consecutive and unparalleled Billboard “Song of the Decade” titles “One Sweet Day” (with Boyz II Men) and “We Belong Together,” further marking her massive presence on the charts since her 1990 song debut “Vision of Love.” Mariah became the second artist in history and the first female performer to have a song debut at No. 1 with “Fantasy” (1995), the groundbreaking collaboration with O.D.B. of the innovative rap group Wu-Tang Clan. Carey’s original holiday classic “All I Want For Christmas is You” redefined its place in pop culture as one of the greatest holiday hits of all time when it reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts in 2011, seventeen years after its debut. Mariah’s influential and stellar contribution to the music industry spans multiple genres and is showcased through a multifaceted hit catalogue as well as a long list of diverse collaborations.
Carey's ongoing impact transcends the music industry and has left an indelible imprint upon the world at large. She recently made a substantial mark in film with her critically acclaimed role as a social worker in “Precious,” the 2009 film based on the novel “Push,” by Sapphire. A Congressional Award recipient, Carey has generously donated her time and energy to a range of domestic and international philanthropic causes near to her heart including The Fresh Air Fund/Camp Mariah (a retreat where inner-city children explore career development), Save the Music Foundation and Make-a-Wish Foundation among several others.
Mariah is currently in the studio, writing, recording and executive-producing her next album for Island Def Jam Music Group; the lead single "Triumphant (Get ‘Em)," is now available on iTunes. Recently Carey made worldwide headlines with the exciting news that she will join the judges’ panel of FOX’s American Idol when the series returns in 2013.

Edgy Elegance
OPI Launches the Germany Collection for Fall/Winter 2012

OPI embraces runway trends with the Germany Collection for Fall/Winter 2012. Drawing inspiration from Berlin, an exciting new fashion hub that blends classic looks with the avant-garde, the collection’s twelve shades offer a mixture of vibrant color, urban-chic neutrals, and reds in variations from light to dark.

“Designers showcased rich colors and striking textures for fall,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  “The Germany Collection beautifully complements these looks, with standout shades in various hues of red and burgundy – the season’s ‘new black.’ Sapphire, black olive and lime yellow are married with creamy neutrals in honey, taupe and beige rose.”

“The overall feel of the Germany Collection is elegance with an edge,” adds Suzi. “The varied palette of colors adds another accent to the list of special touches – think beadwork, paneling, fur and embroidery – that walked the runways during New York Fashion Week. Wearing these shades on fingers and toes is a great way to accessorize a range of looks for the season.”

Sizzling, Fluorescent Hues!

 OPI Announces New Limited Edition Outrageous Neons, the Brand’s First Neon Lacquer




OPI launches its first neon nail lacquer with the Outrageous Neons mini pack, including four limited edition neon shades, a neon white base coat, and OPI Top Coat. The four fluorescent hues include vivid shades of yellow, orange, pink and purple. The essential step for achieving the best results is to prep nails with one coat of neon white base, followed by two coats of neon lacquer. Colors dry matte, but adding one layer of OPI Top Coat results in bright, bold color with a shiny finish.
Outrageous Neons marks OPI’s foray into the world of neon color,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  “In the US, the FDA requires that all cosmetic colorants be approved, and each batch must be certified for purity. The lacquers in this set are formulated with new, FDA-approved neon pigments for a look that’s dazzlingly vibrant.”
 Along with neon white base and OPI Top Coat, the four shades in the Outrageous Neons mini pack include:
Ridiculously Yellow
So yellow, it’s beyond understanding.

Formidably Orange
Brace yourself for this powerful orange.

Riotously Pink
This pink has been known to create a scene.

I really mean it…it’s really purple!

SpaRitual promotes the use of renewable resources and sustainable processes in all facets of our business. One of SpaRitual’s primary focuses is reforestation. 90% of wood pulp is derived from reforestation areas, where trees are harvested according to guidelines that ensure quality forestry practices. The Reforestation process replants crops in existing forests which have been depleted. This process improves the quality of human life by diminishing the pollution and dust from the air, rebuilding natural habitats and ecosystems. Reforestation also helps to reduce the effects of global warming facilitating bios equestrian of atmospheric carbon dioxide.
Wood is a renewable resource, but only by supporting the renewal of our environment as opposed to promoting its decay. Wood pulp doesn’t require the high use of water or energy and the refinement process is also cleaner, emitting fewer emissions. Because of the reduced water content in the wood pulp, bulk is reduced by 3 to 7% further reducing the fossil fuel consumption during transport.
