I'm honestly surprised at how much this collection and its colours has been inspiring me since I got it a few months back. I have a story and scene for each and every one of these and I'm so excited for fall and to wear them on suitable occasions. Will I be picking up Thank Glogg it's Friday for an evening where I know I'll be having Glögg? You bet. Will I be nerdy enough to wear Do You Have This Color In Stock-holm on a shopping day? Most likely. My Voice Is A Little Norse will definitely be seen sparkling on my fingertips on a starry winters night, Going My Way Or Norway while warming up with a cup of hot chocolate in one of the cozy cafes in the Old Town part of Stockholm on a winters afternoon and How Great Is Your Dane? to match the trees on an autumn day in the woods. Magical.
When presenting the collection at Grand Hotel Stockholm spring 2014, Suzi explained how the colours are inspired by popular northern phenomenons and locations; The brown ones are inspired by cinnamon buns, the pink and orange by the colourful houses in Copenhagen and the green and holo glitter both inspired by the northern lights.
My favourites from this collection includes the dark purple Viking In A Vinter Vonderland which brings my mind to Ragnar Lothbrok of the TV series Vikings and the general style of the show, braided hair, cool winds and that purple colour you get under your nail if you accidentally clamp it badly. It's got everything I want for fall: it's dark, it's cold and absolutely gorgeous.
All of my swatches shown above have two coats of nailpolish and no top coat. The Nordic collection is out in stores now.
SNEAK PEEK: OPI NORDIC COLLECTION
Summer is still in the air, the evenings doesn't require much more fabric than they did last month and most of us are probably still filling our work-free days with aquatic activity and outdoor adventures.. but in the cities every store is filling up quickly with the new autumn range and what's left of the crop tops, summer dresses and flower hairbands are already squished together on sale racks... So I guess it's time to give those of you who haven't already seen it, a sneak peek of this year's main fall collection from OPI; the Nordic collection.
