Stop the presses! Hold the polish!
Hehe, yesterday, I came home from work to these 6 shades from the Gwen Stefani by OPI Collection, so I was fast on the draw to put together this Quick Look post.
Many nailphiles are also fans of Gwen Stefani, so there’s lots of anticipation surrounding this collection that will hit stores in January 2014.
Since this is only a Quick Look post, that means I’ll show you bottle shots and swatches.
Later on, when I wear each one as a full manicure, I’ll publish separate in-depth reviews with more swatches in more lighting conditions, so you’ll get a better idea of their personalities.

For now, here’s a little something to whet your appetite! 😉 Enjoy!
Note: The polishes that will be in stores will have special shrinkbands around the handles. Mine don’t have them because they were provided to me by PR.
There are 7 shades in the Gwen Stefani by OPI Collection. In this post, you’ll see 6 of them. (Push and Shove is the only colour that’s missing.)
All photos were taken with flash, and all swatches have 2 coats.

Please stay tuned for my upcoming in-depth reviews and additional swatches of each shade!
Which of the finishes are you drawn to the most? When you heard that Gwen Stefani was teaming up with OPI, what colour immediately sprung to your mind? (Red and gold popped into my head first.)
Fun! Looking forward to this 7th color they are hiding.. 😀
It must be a real crowd-pleaser! Love the anticipation!
I am kinda liking the black satin “4 in the Morning”…It’s different:)
The finish is really edgy and cool! Also, I liked Gwen’s song, “4 in the Morning” back in the day, so I’m a bit biased. 😉
I am really thinking that that pink needs to be in my life 😉 Can’t wait to see swatches of these pretties!

I’m actually wearing that pink today! It’s very saturated. Will review it in-depth as soon as I can. 🙂 I’ve already taken photos, but I just need to crop them and then work on a write-up.
Mmm…. such yummy shades, sophisticated, fun, fashion forward, like Gwen herself. I am hoping the last one will be edgy. I had in mind this collection would push the envelope a bit, since Gwen is a trend setter, not afraid of risk. Clearly, OPI wants to play it safe, but this one is more out there than, say, Mariah or Carrie Underwood collections. I’d say the satin finish are the most attractive and the edgiest ones. When I think of Gwen, I think of red, of course, black and white, platinum and orange because she sings about her Orange county roots. Hopefully OPI will do some more collabs like this- best one since the Nicki Minaj collection!
I thought that the OPI Mariah Liquid Sands were really edgy and amazing. I like her holiday collection, but her Liquid Sands (especially Get Your Number) were real winners in my book!
Nice. I like the glitter especially. 🙂

It sparkles like crazy! 🙂
I’m really liking these colors. I think some of these just might find their way into my collection. LOL
They might just stumble into your collection, right? 😉 Hehe, are you setting up your polish traps as we speak? Hehehe!
Shhh…. Be wery qwuite. i’m hunting polishes.
Hahaha! Love that! 😉
I sing in color is so pretty
Can’t wait to wear that and the others. I’ll try to review them all as soon as I can!
It’s my pleasure!
I LOVE the two satin finish ones. When I first heard about this collection the first colors that popped in my head were red, black and gold or other metallics.
So OPI was right on the money for these colours! 🙂
I am beyond excited for this collection! I grew up listening to No Doubt and Gwen Stefani and even saw her in concert! 4 In The Morning looks really interesting (also one of my favorite song of hers.) The only bummer is that the red is only available with the box set, maybe they will do a mini set with it in it? I’m also dying to know what Push and Shove looks like, from the description it sounds like it maybe similar to Moonraker from the Bond Collection!
It’s so cool that you saw Gwen in concert! I’ve never seen her live. How was it? High energy, I imagine!
4 in the morning definitely…. and I sing in color while I’m at it 🙂
Good choices! 🙂
