The OPI Nordic Collection for Fall/Winter 2014 is inspired by the Nordic region and takes pulls a diverse range of colours from the great northern lights in Finland, deep blue fjords in Norway, and colorful houses in Copenhagen. The collection includes 12 lacquers ranging from spicy browns in shades of bronze, cinnamon and caramel to rich purples in wine, black cherry and blue-violet hues, with accents of creamy coral, pink and sea green.
“When creating colors for a new seasonal collection, I always draw inspiration from the food, music, art, landscape and street style of a particular destination,” remarks Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP. “While conceptualizing the shades of the Nordic Collection, I ate cinnamon buns and drank glogg, snapped photographs of brightly painted houses, and gazed in wonder at the region’s topography – from the northern lights and midnight sun to lava flats and deep fjords. All of these diverse elements came together to inspire an equally varied array of colors that capture the aesthetic of the Nordic region.
“Contrasts were also seen on fall runways, where sheer fabrics were paired with fleece and woolen plaids were embellished with colorful beadwork and intricate lace,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “Nordic Collection by OPI complements the oxblood, coral and earthy tones seen this season and offers a variety of hues. With so many color choices, the Nordic Collection makes it easy to experiment with new nail looks and cultivate personal style. I believe strongly in experimenting with beauty and fashion until finding a unique look. We are sure of only one taste – our own.”

I love the range of colours in this collection. Such great shades of brown which is something I don’t always think to look for. I love how they included a sea green in a fall/winter collection. It is such a great shade that will work year round. I love the wide OPI brush as it makes application quick and easy. The formula on these was great. Coverage was always even and opaque in max 2 coats.
The collection became available August 6th, 2014 at professional salons and the polishes retail for $11.50 each.
