OPI will release its spring/summer 2010 Hong Kong Collection in February in the US. Inspired by the intriguing complexity and multi-cultural personalities of the Pearl of the Orient, Hong Kong, this collection features 12 vibrant, trendy shades with crème and shimmer finishes.

Here are the colors in this collection:
  • Bling Dynasty: A char-"ming" gold that shimmers and glimmers
  • Red My Fortune Cookie: And this rich red is in my future
  • Hot & Spicy: A sizzling coral that’s a kung pao wow!
  • Dim Sum Plum: A berry delectable delicacy
  • Jade is the New Black: The vibrant green is the new fashion vibe
  • Suzi Says Feng Shui: A serene cobalt blue to balance your yin yang
  • A Good Man-darin is Hard to Find: But you've found it- in this zesty red-orange!
  • Lucky Lucky Lavender: Be pretty and prosperous in this luscious light purple
  • Meet Me on the Star Ferry: A Kowloon-lit, moonlit violet
  • Panda-monium Pink: Lend a panda a hand-a in this uproarious light pink
  • Pearl of Wisdom: Smart girls choose this lustrous pearl shade
  • Chop-sticking to My Story: I mean it- "pick up" this warm caramel shade
The colors look wearable and classy. The shades of Pearl of Wisdom, Lucky Lucky Lavender, Dim Sum Plum and Chop-sticking To My Story really appeal to me.

I know many of my readers are from Hong Kong or have been there before. Do you think the colors in this collection capture the modern and traditional elements of Hong Kong?

Looks cute! I'm asian, but have never been to Hong Kong or China (only Taiwan). The names are killing me though, lol, especially Bling Dynasty. I will have to see the colors in person to really know which ones I want though. Thanks for sharing this!

I'm from HK but somehow the whole collection doesn't remind me of the HK nowadays. It looks very 70s or 80s to me (especially the poster).

Hi Neko,

Thank you very much for your comment!

I have never been to Hong Kong. (I have been thinking of travelling there for years.) What colors would remind you of Hong Kong nowadays?

Best,

Hi Alexa Hayden,

I am very excited about the release of this collection too! I usually don't wear berry-toned or purple-toned nail colors. But the berries in this collection caught my eye. I look forward to seeing the collection in person soon!

Best,

BA

no not all , terribly racist, typical of the west and the extreme apparent lack of knowledge of anything about the east

HKer that lives in Canada here. This collection does not even remotely remind me of HK, except for "Kowloon-lit," but that doesn't count because it's not even a name. It's more on the boat with mainland Chinese-Western stereotypes. HK is mostly metropolitan nowadays.. its so business-oriented and modernized due to British rule. "Feng shui".. really? Really cute names considering it is OPI though.

Hi there,

Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts on this collection.

I do look forward to the press release of OPI Hong Kong Collection. I am very curious to know what inspires this collection, how the brand perceives Hong Kong and translates this metropolis into colors.

Best,

BA

I grew up in Hong Kong during the '70's. This colour collection is right on target with the colours we were wearing then with regards to fashion, accessories and beauty. My experience was that Hong Kong is a very international city, vibrant and colourful. I see many different influences in the palette of this collection. I can't wait to see it!
