OPI to Collaborate with Gwen Stefani

OPI recently announced they would be partnering with Gwen Stefani to create a limited-edition line of nail polishes.

The collection will include seven polishes that are not only based on Gwen’s signature style, but also draw inspiration from this year’s punk-themed Met Gala.

Gwen’s signature red shade, “Over & Over A-Gwen”, is available in a boxed nail art set that comes with Swarovski black crystals and studs. The line also includes a unique chrome polish, called “Push and Shove” that’s meant to be worn with a complimentary base coat (dubbed “Lay Down that Base“, natch.) to create a cool mirrored finish.

Other shades “Love.Angel.Music.Baby.” and “4 in the Morning” have a semi-matte finish, while two creme polishes and one glittery shade (“Hey Baby”, “I Sing in Color”, and “In True Stefani Fashion”) round out the collection.
