OPI Fall 2011 ~ Touring America

I'm a little late posting these, but hey--it's only March, so I'm not that late! While I'm not on board with Fall colors as yet, there are some shades in this collection I know I'll love. My favorite based on the promo pictures is the wonderfully drab Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window. Any shade of olive is always welcome in my collection.

These pictures were sent to me individually, so I wanted to put them altogether in sort of a "by shade" order to see the similarities a little easier. Even though I'm so looking forward to Spring and Summer, that bottom row has me thinking of cool crisp nights and soft cozy sweaters! I'm curious to see just how similar the two light grey shades are (5 & 6), because they look almost identical in the promo pictures. Overall, I'm looking forward to this collection. I love the "America" theme and the inspirations behind all of the shades.

1. Color to Diner For I’ll take the rosy-red with a side of “awesome.”

2. My Address is "Hollywood" We put this pretty rose-pink on the map.

3. I Eat Mainely Lobster We “clawed” through crowds to catch this coral for you.

4. Are We There Yet? Don’t make me reach back there and take that perfect melon shade!

5. French Quarter for Your Thoughts Want beads? Then show us your sexy gray nails!

6. Suzi Takes the Wheel Buckle up—she’s not stopping until she gets to gray!

7. Road House Blues In this case…R&B stands for “Really Blue.”

8. Honk if You Love OPI Don’t let this gorgeous dark grape pass you by.

9. Uh-oh Roll Down the Window You’re gonna wanna pull over for this “unexpected” olive green.

10. A-taupe the Space Needle You’ll climb to new heights with this creamy-rich taupe.

11. Get in the Expresso Lane An amped-up dark brown that’ll never letcha down!

12. I Brake for Manicures This gorgeous eggplant-plum has our full attention.

OPI Launches Touring America Collection for Fall/Winter 2011 OPI hits the open road with a new take on classic style in the Touring America Collection for Fall/Winter 2011. Inspired by Americana and cities with rich cultural heritage, the collection’s twelve shades offer comfortable glamour and wearable elegance for nails and toes. “My recent road trip across the country sparked the creation of the Touring America Collection,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “Autumn is a time for reinvention, and these shades revive classic, iconic colors for fall, from cool heather, khaki and chocolate to warm rose, peach and red.”

The season’s go-to shades of taupe and pearl grey appear in variations from dark to light – A-taupe the Space Needle, Get in the Expresso Lane, French Quarter for Your Thoughts, and Suzi Takes the Wheel. Lush urban neutrals in deep sapphire (Road House Blues), rich raisin (Honk If You Love OPI), chic olive (Uh-oh Roll Down the Window), and coffee brown (I Brake for Manicures) merge with iconic red (Color to Diner For), vivid rose (My Address is “Hollywood”), and luminous coral and orange (I Eat Mainely Lobster, Are We There Yet?) for an expansive color landscape. “This collection will take women around the world on the ultimate tour across the USA, with stops in Baltimore, Clarksdale, Hollywood, Jackson Hole, Memphis, Milwaukee, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, Seattle, St. Louis, and Tucson,” explains Suzi. “Together, the locales that inspired Touring America make up a rich palette of color complementing trends from the runway, where we saw a mix of feminine details and dramatic menswear touches.”

Touring America Nail Lacquer shades contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and each includes OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application.

Touring America by OPI will be available August 3, 2011, at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $8.50 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer.
