OPI’s Wizard Of Oz Collection

As we hang on the edge of our seat and prepare for the release of Oz: The Great And Powerful, the much anticipated fantastical interpretation of 1939’s iconic film, The Wizard of Oz, OPI is teasing us with pics of their hottest new upcoming color launches. The 7-piece line is packed with glitter and pretty pastel shades, which are on track to be some of the hottest colors of the spring fashion season. The movie and the nail polishes will both come out in March 2013, but you can have a sneak peek at this glittery color collection here!

As always, we have the witty names along with the hot shades of OPI’s latest debut:From right to left: Monkeys Fly, Glints of Glinda, I Theodora You, Liquid Sand in What Wizardry Is This?

Liquid Sand is a cool new innovation from OPI — developed for the Mariah Carey collection — that gives your manicure a grainy, textured finish- as if you doused your nails in wet sand. Ever on the search for new manicure ideas, I love the concept, but I’m not sure how well it will transition into everyday life. Will I be picking at it? Will it get snagged on my tights? If you try it out before I do, let me know your results!

From right to left: Which is Witch?, Glints of Glinda, Lights Of Emerald City.

The combination of sparkles and nudes in this collection is a total hit for late winter nail art. As the weather warms up, these crisp hues will transition you into light and airy spring looks effortlessly. Still, some of the colors leave me a little confused? Excuse me for being so literal, but why no ruby red or emerald green? (Especially since Pantone recently named emerald the trend color of 2013!) What do you think of this new collection?

  1. […] upon us. It’s time to pick your witches. As if we needed another reason to go gaga over of Oz-inspired beauty and the March release of Oz: The Great and Powerful, Urban Decay is giving us a […]

    • When I heard about this set coming, I was expecting “Ruby Slippers Red” and “Emerald City Green” and “Yellow Brick Gold”…maybe even a witchy black. What happened? When I think of the Wizard of Oz, I don’t think of pastels. These are pretty but not what I was expecting. Thanks anyway.

      • Agreed- I was actually torn between first thinking it was great that OPI didn’t go with the most obvious and expected shades and being happy that the shades were so wearable. But then I missed the bold emerald!

  2. I work at Smart Styles and we just recieved the collection today even though we can’t put it out until March. I was blown away by how beautiful the colors were! I can see how it would be nice to have the red, green, and yellow, but I do have to say, it is nice to see a cool twist to such a popular movie. Plus the nail polish in person is SOOO gorgeous, it was totally worth it(at least I think) for them to do a true spring like collection. When you see it, I am sure you will defintally agree. 🙂 🙂

  3. […] absolutely love the new Liquid Sand trend in nail polish, but since I don’t own those polishes and don’t want to spend the […]

  4. […] you tell that we’re a little Oz-obsessed here at Collab? Can you really blame us? From OPI’s whirlwind of a nail polish line to Urban Decay’s witch-inspired makeup palettes (which you can also pick up on HSN), our […]

  5. […] The nail polish trio is sold at Sephora. The shades are adorably titled “Defying Gravity,” “Popular,” and “One Short Day,” — all awesome songs that are featured in the musical. Elphaba’s green skin color is captured perfectly by the sparkle-free green shade, but the glimmering emerald lacquer picks up the Wizard of Oz reference! […]
