OPI Color Paints Blendable Nail Lacquer

OPI Color Paints Blendable Nail Lacquer photographs started flying around the interwebs a few days ago and the nail community was thrown into a tizzy looking for information. Bits and pieces are squeaking out and it makes us giddy for more! By the way, according to Danny, it's Color Paints - two words.

I don’t have much for you yet but I’m betting I’ll have more soon. There’s this image (from opi_professional_italia IG) that started circulating a few days ago.

Head Beautygeek re-grammed it, and last night she got a response from OPI global nail artist Danny Phung, who is based in Vancouver.

If you can't read what it says there because you're on a mobile, Danny Phung says OPI Color Paints "are chromatic, using a special silver base to change the color from light to dark, hence 'blendable.' The same color will change [the] effect depending on brush stroke and pressure, as well as using other colors in the collection. It's meant to be fun and easy so the average consumer can achieve their own style of art at home."

Oooh – very interesting. I still have no idea what that could possibly mean. Is it "instant nail art?" Like the nail images on the poster and the box? Is this for people who can't art? Does the polish just do that when you layer at will? I don't get it. I have no visual. I need a tutorial. I need bottles. I need to get my nails in this SO badly!

In the meantime, please enjoy some photos of what OPI Colorpaints are gonna look like in all their boxed and displayed glory. Whispers I've been hearing on the street are of an end of April release date. Man, that's far away...
