Essie & OPI Spring '08 Nail Polish

With spring is approaching, two of my favorite nail polish brands are making their debuts of spring collections in February. With all the soft pastels, light sheers, and bright colors to choose from, I can't wait for a transition to a warmer season.


Essie
Essie Spring 2008 collection is bringing us six nail colors in a range of luscious and pastel shades. The collection will be available from Feb 1, 2008. Line up includes:
  • Body Language: soft white
  • Great Expectations: light silver
  • Hard to Get: pastel pink
  • Hi Maintenance: sheer pale pink
  • Looking for Love: soft lavender
  • Secret Affair: pinky white

OPI
OPI Spring/Summer 2008 India Collections is going bold, bright, and high-energy shades.

“There has never been a better, brighter moment for color than now,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “Spring’s fashion palette is filled with rosy pink, magenta, turquoise, yellow (the new ‘it’ shade), tangerine, and geranium red, used as splashes against natural tones and in bold graphic prints. Shades of hot pink, orange, vivid red, and coral on nails are the perfect complement.”

The 12 nail shades will be available from Feb 6, 2008:

  • Get Me to the Taj on Time (pale opal)
  • ElePhantastic Pink (carnation pink)
  • I’m Indi-a Mood for Love (hot pink)
  • Lunch at the Delhi (coral): available in coordinating Lip Colour and Lip Liner
  • MonSooner or Later (orange-red)
  • Keys to My Karma (vivid red)
  • Moon Over Mumbai (soft grey)
  • Yoga-ta Get this Blue! (dark blue)
  • Royal Rajah Ruby (Jeweled burgundy): available in coordinating Lip Colour and Lip Liner
  • Curry Up Don’t Be Late! (metallic gold)
  • Black Cherry Chutney (dark black-red)
  • Charmed by a Snake (bronze): available in coordinating Lip Colour and Lip Liner
I am inclined to OPI India collection as it consists of a variety of colors from pales, pinks, corals to reds. Essie Spring 2008 has a lovely array of pastels, and it is still instilled with the brand's girly sophistication and understated style that I love. But I expect the new collection would come up with something a little more playful and inventive. OPI India collection offers soft shades and deep shades in a warm tone. Most of all, I think the India collection, full of pinks, corals, reds, and pales, has the elements to complement the bright and bold colors of Spring 2008 fashion.
