This year, Gwen Stefani joins the ranks of her fellow musicians Katy Perry, Selena Gomez and Mariah Carey by collaborating with OPI. The No Doubt frontwoman and solo artist has designed seven new shades for the nail lacquer brand, and the highly anticipated line has just hit the shelves of Ulta stores and OPI retailers across the United States.
This glam-punk icon has put her signature spin on the new shades, cheekily naming the electric pink “Hey Baby,” the chrome silver “Push and Shove” and the satin black “4 In The Morning” after her own songs as well as No Doubt songs. The satin gold shade is named after her fifth studio album, "Love. Angel. Music. Baby.," and "In True Stefani Fashion" is a fun silver glitter. The trademark color of the line is a bright red called "Over & Over A-Gwen," an ode to the classic red lip color that Gwen always wears. Throughout the seven-piece collection, Gwen plays with various textures and finishes like chrome, glitter, satin and creme gloss to create nail looks for any occasion. With OPI's excellent reputation for long-wearing, highly pigmented colors and Gwen's knack for nail art, this new polish line is sure to be a major success.
When the line was first announced last October, OPI co-founder and Executive Vice President Suzi Weiss Fischmann said that the partnership was inspired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibit “Punk: Chaos to Couture.” Gwen, who has had a successful career as both a designer and music artist, was the perfect partner to bring OPI's vision for punk-inspired nail lacquer to life. Gwen's expansive clothing line called L.A.M.B. has established her as a major voice in fashion, and, with her eye for design, Gwen brings glam-punk style into the world of nail art. Gwen is known for accessorizing her wardrobe with the perfect nail looks and for taking risks with gorgeous, edgy manicures.
