OPI Launches the Nordic Collection,
Featuring 12 New Shades for Fall/Winter 2014

Inspired by the great northern lights in Finland, deep blue fjords in Norway, and colorful houses in Copenhagen, Nordic Collection by OPI brings the diverse colors of its namesake region to nails and toes for fall/winter 2014. This new collection of 12 lacquers features a palette ranging from spicy browns in shades of bronze, cinnamon and caramel to rich purples in wine, black cherry and blue-violet hues, with accents of creamy coral, pink and sea green.

“When creating colors for a new seasonal collection, I always draw inspiration from the food,
music, art, landscape and street style of a particular destination,” remarks Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP. “While conceptualizing the shades of the Nordic Collection, I ate cinnamon buns and drank glogg, snapped photographs of brightly painted houses, and gazed in wonder at the region’s topography – from the northern lights and midnight sun to lava flats and deep fjords. All of these diverse elements came together to inspire an equally varied array of colors that capture the aesthetic of the Nordic region.

“Contrasts were also seen on fall runways, where sheer fabrics were paired with fleece and
woolen plaids were embellished with colorful beadwork and intricate lace,” adds Weiss-Fischmann.

Nordic Collection by OPI complements the oxblood, coral and earthy tones seen this season and offers a variety of hues. With so many color choices, the Nordic Collection makes it easy to experiment with new nail looks and cultivate personal style. I believe strongly in experimenting with beauty and fashion until finding a unique look. We are sure of only one taste – our own.”

Nordic Collection by OPI includes the following shades in both nail lacquer and GelColor

    Loving these colors. Can’t wait to see the reviews of each color. Thanks for sharing them with us!

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Melissa!

      I’m very much looking forward to reviewing some of these shades and sharing my opinions and photos with all of my awesome readers. It’s fun to share the excitement with others who understand nail love! Hehe!

  2. Mandy

    Hey Mary! I’m most excited about My Voice is a Little Norse and My Dogsled is a Hybrid. I’ve never had glogg before! Have you? As for a destination…I’d have to say the Caribbean Islands. There’s so much color to draw inspiration from!

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Mandy!

      How are you doing? Hope that your weekend’s going great! 🙂

      I’ve never had a glogg before, either! Just based on the ingredients, it sounds great for the colder months – really rich and comforting!

  3. Nailgal

    These are very cute nail design colors. I like the fact that when you are creating colors for a new seasonal collection, you always draw inspiration from the food, music, art, landscape and street style of a particular destination. This just says it all why your collection looks very nice.

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Nailgal!

      Yeah, Suzi and the OPI team are amazing at coming up with inspiring and exciting nail-polish collections! 🙂 A real professional through and through!

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Stephanie!

      While it’s not conventional, I’m all for it! I like wearing shades, even when they’re not ‘seasonally appropriate’. The way I see it is that they add a pop of colour to weather that can sometimes be dreary.

      I’ve been noticing that more and more nail-polish collections are including shades that aren’t ‘seasonally appropriate’. It’s interesting!

  4. michaela

    I’m excited about My Dogsled is A Hybrid, How Great is Your Dane, and let’s be honest probably the entire collection! I’m always excited for Fall collections!

  5. Renée

    I like the bright colors from this collection.. The green is awesome. 🙂 Not so sure about the brown shades, since those usually don’t suit my skin tone but overall this is a nice balanced collection. I’ve seen some swatches in the meantime and I must say: the collection is kinda growing on me.

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Renee!

      Hehe, I’m always excited to see a green, especially in an OPI collection because I feel like they don’t put out too many greens.

  6. Susana

    Looks like a great collection. I’m waiting to see swatches, but my favorites so far are Do You Have this Color in Stock-holm? and My Dogsled is a Hybrid.

  7. Lucy

    These colours look gorgeous! So many I can’t wait to see, but definitely interested in My Voice is a Little Norse and how it looks in reality!

  8. Stella (Ex Libris)

    I’m still ambivalent about this collection. Somewhat it seems to me it is a mish-mash of different styles: summer neons brown shimmeries and autumn darks. I really love the coral one, especially since it’s still warm and sunny where I am 😉

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Stella!

      I can see how this collection could be critiqued for having colours that aren’t as ‘cohesive’, but I like how it’s all over the place. It’s like there’s something for everyone!

  9. Jammie T

    I tend to like deep, dark colors and this collection hits all of my buttons. I can’t wait to start hoarding these 😉

  10. lawren

    I’m so excited for this collection!
    There’s so many nice colors and it’s one of those collections where I’d have to buy more than one or two colors. hehe

  11. Mary

    I’m pretty sure I say this with every OPI collection but, this one is my favorite! I am super pale (think Wednesday Addams) and this collection has some gorgeous shades that would work well with my skin tone.

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Mary!

      Hehe, I know what you mean about thinking, “This is my favourite!” and then seeing the next collection and thinking the same thing! It’s amazing how OPI can keep coming out with colours to entertain and amaze us season after season!

  12. Norma

    My favorite colors are Do You Have this Color in Stock-holm, My Dogsled is a Hybrid, and
    Suzi Has a Swede Tooth? But mainly excited for Stock-holm

  13. Ernicia

    I will defnitely be hunting for these colours here in South Africa…great collection from OPI as always. Cant wait for the swatches.

  14. Joyce

    From the entire collection, I’ll say I love ‘My Voice is a Little Norse’ the most. ‘Skating on Thin Ice-Land’ is another good one for Canadian winter.

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Lizzy!

      Hehe! 😉 I still love my Liquid Sands, but I guess OPI is moving forward from that trend. Aww…I’m still waiting for them to put out a green Liquid Sand, though! 😉

  15. Angelique

    I love every color that is in this collection. I use to be a manager at a beauty supply store some twenty plus years ago and that’s when I got my first and only bottles of OPI. I haven’t been able to afford OPI in years so I am entering this contest with all the hope in the world to get a few more added to the 13 I have. Wonderful colors!

  16. Emily

    The one that immediately draws my eye is the bronze shimmer, and I would definitely like to see it reviewed here. It looks like it could be incredibly streaky… Plus, “Do You Have This Color in Stockholm?” looks amazingly intense and I would love to see how the color looks on a real person.

  17. Suzanne G

    I love the Suzi Has A Swede Tooth and I am always looking for new pink colours as I just find it always flattering on me.

  18. Natalie Brown

    OPI always has the best colors!! I’m loving the pinks and purples in this collection. It helps that I’m of Scandanavian descent too. lol

  19. floria

    Quite intriguing collection: so many purples and a green (unusual for fall). I’m a bit on the fence about all those brownies, and the pink seems already seen, but, all considered, I’m excited enough about this collection.

  20. Carlota

    Love this collection! I love, love love that they didn’t make it all full of “fall-appropriate” colors, but decided to sneak in some funnier ones! “My Dogsled is a Hybrid”, “Do You Have this Color in Stock-holm?” and “OPI with a Nice Finn-ish” are already on my wishlist. 😀

  21. mara

    i really want to see if Do You Have this Color in Stock-holm? is really a blurple , love those kinds of colours .

  22. Mere Verzi

    I never used OPI before, i see they have beautifull shades and i guess i will buy now because i really love it!

  23. JoElla

    The more information I read about this collection, the more I really like all of the colors. I am leaning more towards the vampy darker colors, but the tans and brighter colors are really growing on me

  24. sherry butcher

    I love Skating on Thin Ice-Land! I would be able to mix colors over & over with this collection. TFS.

  25. Kayla

    Those two pinks, that sea-green and that really pretty blue could use a home in my nail polish collection XD!

  26. Dimana Dyakova

    To be honest I’m tired of OPIs fall collections already. The release the same old navy blue/dark plum and neutral shades … This collection rings between San Francisco and Euro Central.
    The only polish I love is My Dogsled is a Hybrid and I will be buying it.

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Dimana!

      Aww, sorry to hear that you feel underwhelmed by this collection. On the positive side, at least your wallet won’t be crying! Hehe! 😉

  27. Cassandra

    Can’t aFjörd Not To looks like a great coral, that’d probably be my favorite out of the collection.

  28. Melinda L.

    Never had glogg. OPI always comes out with the most gorgeous colours. I love the Do You Have this Color in Stock-holm?, so amazing and bold

  29. Candice

    Do You Have this Color in Stock-holm? looks like a colour I already own, but of course I also want this one… 🙂 I do love the OPI brush! Viking in a Vinter Vonderland looks lovely, I have been debating on which vampy purple to get… maybe it’ll be this one? (or A Grape Affair or Vant to Bite my Neck… so hard to choose!!!). I’m looking forward to your swatches and reviews on those especially.

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Candice!

      I will try my best to get up a review on some of these soon. Things have been very busy after work, but I’ll try to get it done! I know that I’m not the only one interested in these shades! 🙂

  30. Anna

    When I saw this collection on your IG I knew I had to have it, esp OPI With A Nice Finn Ish! Can’t wait for your reviews!

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Anna!

      I’ve worn some already, but just need to get around to cropping the photos and blogging about them. Reviews are coming! 🙂

  31. Joyce

    Sure… leave it to OPI to make yet another collection that I want… all of them!!
    Sure, some of them aren’t the most original colors, but I can’t just buy a few and leave their sisters in the store, right? 😉

  32. Gisela Matta

    This collection is amazing!!! ALL the colors are beautiful… But my 2 favorite are -Can’t aFjörd Not To and My Dogsled is a Hybrid- .

  33. Susan T.

    I’m not so sure about all the tan colours but I love My Dogsled is a Hybrid. The pink is quite pretty too!

  34. Megan S.

    With a Nice Finn-ish and Do You have this Color in Stock-holm are must haves for me, I feel like I can’t wear With a Nice Finn-ish without Do You have this Color in Stock-holm.

  35. Chaitali

    I love the Do You Have this Color in Stock-holm?,Skating on Thin Ice-Land, My Voice is a Little Norse and Viking in a Vinter Vonderland from this collection

  36. Dawn

    Wow they are all fantastic, I think my favorite could wind up being either OPI with a Nice Finn-ish or My Dogsled is a Hybrid.

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Jessica!

      They contacted me, but I was pretty overloaded with many things at work and after work, plus things for my blog, so sadly, I didn’t participate this time.

  37. Alyssa S.

    I love that there are some lighter shades in this collection and not all dark colours! Just because it’s a Fall/Winter collection, doesn’t mean our nails have to be dark like the season!

  38. Marissa

    I need Viking in a Vintner Vonderland in my life! I have been pin in after it since I first saw a bottle shot

  39. Gretchen

    I think this collection is great! A nice mix of neutrals and pops of color! I am especially interested in the glitter, I Can’t aFjord Not To, and My Dogsled is a Hybrid.

  40. Jeannelle

    I find some OPI collections barely have any colours that reach out to me, but I love so many colours in this one! I want to wear them all! I think my favourite is Can’t aFjörd Not To, but I’d have to try them to find out 🙂

  41. Rachel Beltz

    This collection must have been made for me! These are my ideal colors of nail polish! I love Thank Glogg It’s Friday!, My Voice Is a Little Norse, and My Dogsled is a Hybrid the most!

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey PW!

      Funny thing is that I’ve worn that polish, but just haven’t cropped the photos yet. Fingers crossed that it’ll make it onto the blog. We’ll see! 🙂

  42. Julia Brenchley

    Wow, this collection looks great! In love with ‘Do You have this Color in Stockholm’ and ‘My Dogsled is a Hybrid’ especially 🙂

  43. Sandra

    Woooow, want them all. 😛
    A nice mix of neutrals and pops of color. 🙂
    My favourites are: My Dogsled is a Hybrid, Suzi Has a Swede Tooth, Thank Glogg It’s Friday!, Going My Way or Norway? and My Voice is a Little Norse. <3 PURE LOVE! :))

  44. Amanda Lawson

    Oh my, have my eye on Can’t aFjörd Not To, My Dogsled is a Hybrid, Suzi Has a Swede Tooth, Do You Have this Color in Stock-holm?, Thank Glogg It’s Friday!, Viking in a Vinter Vonderland, Skating on Thin Ice-Land….not in that order but all oh so pretty!

  45. Melissa C.

    I have been waiting to see My Voice Is A Little Norse in person for months. I am so excited about this collection.

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Melissa!

      I wore My Voice Is A Little Norse, but haven’t shown it on here or social media yet. 🙂 We’ll see if it makes an appearance sometime!

  46. Madeleine

    These look amazing!!! I’m really looking forward to Going my way or Norway and My voice is a little Norse. I think I need a good caramel color in my collection and you could never go wrong with a good glitter. Also, great swatches of Can’t Afjord Not To.

  47. Tanyatopia

    Going My Way or Norway, Thank Glogg It’s Friday, My Voice Is a Little Norse and My Dogsled Is a Hybrid have my name all over them!

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Tanyatopia!

      Hope you love them as much when you wear them! 🙂 Feel free to share photos of your manicure with me on social media. I’d love to see!
