OPI has recently released a new celebrity collaboration with none other than Gwen Stefani, rocker chic and fashion icon. Gwen Stefani, lead singer of No Doubt, is one of the edgiest girls in the music business and with her successful L.A.M.B. clothing and fragrance lines it is no surprise she’s working with OPI on some of the coolest polishes for the season.
This collection is the first to feature Satin finish polishes, which dry to a really cool satin-matte texture. There are a few in the collection that have this finish, while others have a Creme Gloss or other texture. The seven limited edition shades in the collaboration is as follows:
Hey Baby, I Sing in Color, Love.Angel.Music.Baby., 4 in the Morning, In True Stefani Fashion, Push and Shove, and Over & Over A-Gwen.
The three colours I was most interested in were Hey Baby, Love.Angel.Music.Baby., and 4 in the Morning.
Hey Baby is a super bright pink that is a great middle ground between bubblegum girly pink and bold hot pink. It’s a Creme Gloss finish so it is super shiny and looks perfectly opaque in two coats. I don’t use a top coat with it since it is so glossy on it’s own.
Love.Angel.Music.Baby. is one of the Satin finish polishes in the collection. It is a pale gold with shimmer that looks super luxurious. It almost looks like one of the Liquid Sand polishes from OPI. but it doesn’t feel bumpy like those do. The best way to describe the texture of this polish is a cross between the Liquid Sand polishes and a matte polish.
4 in the Morning is a black Satin polish with some shimmer to it as well. It dries super quick and is very opaque. It’s a great go-to for something slightly different than a plain black polish.
All three of these are really great shades and the entire Gwen Stefani collaboration looks just as good. Way to go OPI!
