OPI Peanuts Collection Press Release

OPI Peanuts Collection Press ReleaseAutumn is just a wink away, and although the last thing you may want to think about is the weather getting cooler, I have some nail news that I hope you love as much as I do!

The OPI Peanuts Collection isn’t just a fall launch, but it’s a Hallowe’en collection! *Squeals*

It hits stores in September, which I can’t believe is next month! The summer has really flown by so quickly this year, hasn’t it? And there has been a lot of rain, which is odd.

(In case you didn’t know, Hallowe’en is my favourite holiday, so although I’m trying to contain my excitement, um, I just can’t!) 😉

There are 4 shades, so it’s a small collection, but that’s okay. The colours look fun, and I think it’s a very unique collaboration to pair Charlie Brown with nail polish. It’s also cool to see fun black glitter polishes. Plus there isn’t a typical orange that you see a billion times in other Hallowe’en collections.

There are 4 colours in the OPI Peanuts Collection:

OPI Launches Peanuts Limited Edition
Nail Lacquers for Halloween 2014

Peanuts by OPI brings to life Charles M. Schulz’s comic strip characters for Halloween 2014. Inspired by “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” the four new limited edition nail lacquer shades include seasonal yellow and black crèmes, as well as two black-based glitter hues.

“‘It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’ is a classic, beloved film,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Brand Ambassador. “Peanuts by OPI celebrates the fun, youthful nature of Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and Snoopy with four limited edition nail lacquer shades designed to capture the spirit of Halloween. With two crème and two glitter options, you can switch between a cheery yellow or chic black look, or try adding a layer of glitter for a unique finish.”

Peanuts by OPI includes the following shades:

Each of the four shades is also available in the Little Peanuts mini pack, which is sold with ten nail decals ranging from popular Peanuts phrases like “Good Grief!” and “Pow!” to sketches of Snoopy and the signature squiggle of Charlie Brown’s shirt.

“These stickers offer a playful, kitschy way to add instant art to nails,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “My favorite decal pays tribute to Snoopy’s many kisses – ‘Smak!’”

Peanuts nail lacquer shades each feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application. Peanuts by OPI and Little Peanuts mini pack will be available beginning September 2014 at Professional Salons and Spas. Peanuts nail lacquers will retail for $11.50 CAN each; Little Peanuts mini pack will retail for $17.50 CAN.

    Hoh… seems like an interesting collection. I am liking the idea of Peanuts collection but will have to wait for swatches to fully decide if I like it or don’t like it as much or if I feel its a let down. =/ Hmm, but if they are aiming for package sort of thing (if you get what I mean) I felt there is a need for some sort of white (off-white, grey tone-ish though) to be in there — to complete the whole comic-concept.

    Otherwise, if OPI were aiming for ‘just selling colours’, excuse me for ranting a bit here. But there are tons of yellow and black out there. I’m sure I can find a dupe with cheaper price-tags. I find it upsetting that they weren’t a little more creative with this collection. Sure yes, Charlie’s shirt is yellow but judging from the inspiration and the packaging on the box, a yellow with sparse small matte circle glitter (uniformed sized to mimic the dots) of orange/red colour might have been something a little more unique. And with the glitters bottles having black components in them already, a separate black creme feels… inappropriate. How about one inspired by their skin colour? Peachy-beige with sparse matte white small uniformed sized glitters. If not glittered, just a peachy-beige creme base makes more sense to me.

    Sigh. Anyway, the only ‘shade’ I am looking forward to see in this collection is To Be or Not To Beagle. If and only if the glitters are matte. If they were those shinny-reflective sorts.. I must say the collection would be a let down =/

      Hey Lacqueerisa!

      It would’ve been awesome if they came out with a white that was a one-coater! I’m still waiting for them to come out with that.

      I understand how you feel about the black polish included. Guess they were obligated to include one for a Hallowe’en collection. The good thing is that the formula on it is lovely.

      Aww, sorry to hear that the collection in general disappointed you! Usually Hallowe’en collections are exciting. At least the colourful glitters interest you a bit. You can mattify them with a top coat at least. 🙂

    I just scared my co-workers to death because I squealed like a 2 year old when I saw this post. OMG! I’m a DIE HARD Snoopy fan. I’m a fanatic for anything Snoopy so needless to say, I’ll be buying the entire collection ASAP!

      Hey Melissa!

      Hahahaha! I do that a lot, too. Maybe not at work, but it usually happens to me on the bus. I’ll be looking at something online, I’ll squeal, and people will look at me. 😛 Oops!

    I LOVE anything Charlie Brown and OPI is my favorite nail brand so this should be a major squealy moment for me, but… it isn’t. Those shades don’t appear new or exciting. And no orange? For a Fall release based on the Great Pumpkin? That’s just wrong, Snoopy. 😉

      Hey Mary!

      Aww, sorry to hear that the collection was a disappointment for you! The good news? At least you can save your money and put it toward another collection that you adore more! 🙂 There’s always a silver lining!

    I LOVE the inspiration behind this collection. Even though I’m not a huge yellow or black fan, I really like how OPI is turning to more unconventional themes for polish collections. I think I may pick up the mini pack of this when it comes out, just for nostalgic reasons 🙂

      Hey Ixchel!

      You’ll have a lot of fun wearing different combinations with them, too! Even though it’s a small collection, they are pretty easy to incorporate into a manicure to give it an interesting pop of colour (especially with the glitters)!
