Gwen Stefani by OPI Collection Press Release & Promo Pictures

OPI Gwen Stefani by OPI CollectionGwen Stefani gets my attention because she expresses her individuality freely, whether it’s through her statement-making red lips, bright pink hair (back in the day), or quirky fashion sense.

Naturally, when I caught wind of a collaboration between Gwen Stefani and OPI, I anxiously anticipated what colours and finishes would be included in the collection.

Yesterday, I received the Gwen Stefani by OPI Collection press release and some promo pictures, so I had to share them with you!

You’ll notice that there are 6 nail-polish images, yet there are 7 shades in the collection. This is because (as PR informed me), Push and Shove isn’t yet available. When it is, if I can get an image, I will update this post.

There are 7 shades in the Gwen Stefani by OPI Collection:

Below is the official press release sent to me by PR:

OPI Partners with Music and Fashion Icon Gwen Stefani to Launch Limited Edition Nail Lacquers, Featuring Breakthrough Finishes

OPI joins celebrity partner Gwen Stefani in announcing seven new limited edition nail lacquers for 2014, featuring standout color in breakthrough finishes. Highlights from the collection include a bold red lacquer that pays homage to Gwen’s signature lipstick, a new semi-matte satin finish in shades of gold and black, and a mirrored chrome paired with a special base coat.

Inspired by the 2013 Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala that featured the theme “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” OPI Executive VP and Artistic Director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann decided to create a collection of lacquer celebrating the role of music as a major influence in fashion. “With her expertise as a singer, songwriter and designer, who better to collaborate with than Gwen Stefani?” asks Weiss-Fischmann. “Known for her trademark red lips, bold eye makeup and nail art, Gwen uses beauty to accessorize her style.”

Gwen’s signature red OPI hue – Over & Over A-Gwen – is available in a boxed set, which includes Swarovski black crystals and silver, gold and pewter studs in bar, square, diamond and circle shapes for creating unique nail designs, as well as nail glue for easy application. Love.Angel.Music.Baby. and 4 in the Morning feature a new, semi-matte satin finish designed to be worn without top coat. Push and Shove, a bold chrome hue, is also worn without top coat but requires a special complimentary base coat – Lay Down that Base. One thin coat of Lay Down that Base topped with two thin coats of Push and Shove yields an
intense, mirrored finish. The collection is rounded out with two glossy crème lacquers and one sparkly glitter shade: Hey Baby, I Sing in Color, and In True Stefani Fashion.

OPI wanted to create a collection as dramatic, diverse and glamorous as its namesake,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “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.”

Gwen Stefani by OPI includes the following seven limited edition nail lacquers: Hey Baby, I Sing in Color, Love.Angel.Music.Baby., 4 in the Morning, In True Stefani FashionPush and Shove* and Over & Over A-Gwen**.

Gwen Stefani by OPI nail lacquers contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application. This promotion will be available beginning January 2014 at professional salons and spas across Canada, for $10.95 suggested retail for each nail lacquer. The boxed set including Over & Over A-Gwen and SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS will retail for $18.95 CAN.

Which Gwen Stefani by OPI shade are you the most curious about seeing in person? Did you listen to No Doubt, or were you more a fan of when Gwen Stefani went solo?

    Over and Over A-Gwen is my favourite. I’ve never been able to get into No Doubt or Gwen when she went solo but I’ve always been a fan of her style.

      Hey Rosie!

      I think it’s cool how she used to make her own clothes, and now she’s a legit fashion designer. It’s inspiring to see dreams coming true.

    I am a No Doubt fan, for me that was her best time. I miss the band.

    After she went solo and went to pop I lost interest, her voice is great but I prefer rock as a rocker of course.

    I’m curious about the red , and I’m not sure if that one is brown

      Hey Icequeen81!

      I liked some of her songs when she went solo, but I miss those No Doubt days! They had a lot of charisma.

      With flash, the dark shades are hard to see, aren’t they? one is a very dark charcoal (satin) and the other is a very vampy burgundy (creme gloss). Hope that helps!

    No Doubt, hands down. That being said, I’ve always thought Gwen was one of the most beautiful women, with a great and daring sense of fashion. I am very curious/anxious to see Push and Shove….the need for special basecoat reminds me of holo polishes. It sounds very cool.

      Hey Elisa!

      Yeah, I also think she’s very beautiful – she has great skin, and I love how she wears bold red lips. It pops against her skin tone.
