Dear Santa: below, please find a list (with images) of all the happy OPI holiday gift set things for 2014 I think would look great under my tree. Love always, very-well-behaved Manigeek.
opi holiday 2014 = easy giftin’ to the nail nerd
This year there are a whack of wonderful OPI holiday offerings that are easily giftable to that nail-polish junkie on your list. They won’t cost you arms and legs, and they’ll be mightily appreciated. I know this because I’m a nail-polish junkie and I would want all of these pretties.
opi treatments & tools
above: opi envy & lace. There are two of these sets. This one features the Nail Envy nail strengthener for sensitive and peeling nails. It also comes with a fun holiday cuff that’ll make your party get-ups just a little more lacy.
above: opi envy & lace. The second set contains that festive cuff accompanied by a bottle of the original Nail Envy we all know and love.
above: opi wipe-off! Yes! Travel nail-polish remover wipes! You don’t even know how many of these I’ve used. I’d rather have bare nails than chipped polish, so if I’m out and about and get a chip, I dive into my purse and come out with one of these and a really big smile. They’re handy. Insanely handy.
opi polish packs for amateurs 'n pros
above: opi holiday 2014 trend on ten. Minis!! What girl doesn’t love minis? Only this one. I call them "amateur bottles" and I never buy them for myself. But I do buy them for other people. I also really, really love to receive minis! They give me a chance to try so many shades, and then if I fall in love with something, I pop out and get me the pro-sized (aka full-sized) bottle.
above: opi holiday 2014 trend on ten. By the way, Trend on Ten splits into two packs. Yep, two. You can gift the neutral palette to one person and the reds to another if you so choose, ‘cause we all know there are some people out there who only wear reds and some who only wear neutrals. Smart move, OPI.
above: opi trend on ten 2014 top set. The neutral range is pretty and sweet. From left to right, it includes core shades Haven’t the Foggiest, Alpine Snow, Bubble Bath, Tickle My Franc-y, and Princesses Rule!
above: opi trend on ten 2014 bottom set. I’m diggin' the vibrant shades of this bottom row. Again, from left to right, it includes the classic OPI shades Toucan Do It If You Try, Cajun Shrimp, Big Apple Red, Malaga Wine, and Lincoln Park After Dark.
above: opi gwen stefani mini holiday stars. In keeping with the minis, OPI Holiday is also giving us a little Gwen set with four of my fave shades from the collection. I like the Gwen set. I’m wearing one of ’em right now!
above: opi gwen stefani mini holiday stars. From left to right, shades include Red Fingers & Mistletoes, What’s Your Point-settia?, I Carol About You, and the shade I’m currently sporting, Kiss Me – or Elf!
above: opi wrapped wild for the holidays. There are three of these particular duos, each with different shades. There’s one with Rollin’ in Cashmere and Love is Hot and Coal (both from the Gwen Stefani OPI holiday collection), and then there’s one with the classic Lincoln Park After Dark and Samoan Sand. There’s this pair of classics too: Big Apple Red and Muir Muir on the Wall.
above: opi wrapped wild for the holidays. Did I mention these three sets come with a bonus scarf? Yep, it’s a Cheetah-print infinity scarf and it’s fun. There it is with my new bottles on it, and I’m holding another new thing for holiday: the Elegantly Smooth Crystal Mini File by OPI. I love a crystal file. This one is 240-grit, so it’s ultra fine and helps prevent chipping and peeling. Also, it’s mini. That means it fits real nicely in your purse.
above: opi holiday gwen stefani unfrost my heart trio. Oooh! Three full-sized bottles from the Gwen Stefani Holiday collection 2014!
above: opi gwen stefani unfrost my heart trio. Shades from left to right: Unfrost My Heart (sparkling silver), I’ll Tinsel You In (black ‘n white confetti coat), and the So Elegant black ’n chrome glitter top coat.
above: opi holiday gwen stefani rollin’ in cashmere trio. Oooh! Three more full-sized bottles from Gwen Holiday all in a handy gift pack!
above: opi gwen stefani rollin’ in cashmere trio. Shades from left to right: Rollin’ in Cashmere, Snow Globetrotter confetti coat (brilliant over a holiday green), and Comet in the Sky (brilliant over black). And what am I wearing? Why that’s OPI Kiss Me – Or Elf!
All this stuff should be rolling out all over the place as of right now. I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to find it at Ulta.com and I know you’ll also be able to find it at your local OPI retailer. Envy & Lace sets retail for $22.50CAD each. OPI Wipe Offs $7.95CAD. OPI Trend on Ten 2014 is $34.50CAD. Wrapped Wild for the Holidays retails for $21.50CAD.
Happy shoppin’ everybody! Oh! Wait! If you’re looking for swatches of OPI Gwen Stefani Holiday 2014, we gottem. If you’re looking into the new year to see what’s coming next year, I invite you to visit out post on OPI Hawaii for Spring/Summer 2015. There’s lots of info in that Hawaii post including news on OPI Fifty Shades of Grey and the possible OPI Soft Shades 2015 too. For more info on everything OPI, visit OPI.com.
AND, if you read all the way down to here, please enjoy this photo of my empty minis on upside-down parade. That buncha bottles went to good use...
I can't nail art but I sho nuff can make stuffs. All you need is a bunch of empty minis, a string of LED lights, some time, and a bunch of other things. Ta da! Manigeek is crafty!
Edit for OPI Mini Light Assistance: Okay, originally I added all the stuff on how to make OPI Mini lights here. But it makes more sense to make a dedicated post about the project. So, here's the linky thing to How to Make OPI Mini Lights!
