OPI San Francisco Fall/Winter 2013 Collection Preview

I also received an early peek this week into the upcoming OPI fall collection inspired by a geographic location. San Francisco is the lucky place, and the collection of 15 colors includes 3 new liquid sands. The colors look true to the fall season, with lots of dark moody shades in the red/purple/blue color family. I know it's a bit early to think about fall when winter's not even over for many of us, but do take a look and let me know what you think. :-)

It's still a little ways away, but I'll link to swatches and reviews once I have those up. (All info and images are courtesy of OPI.)

OPI Launches the San Francisco Collection For Fall/Winter 2013

San Francisco by OPI brings street chic style with West Coast flair to nails and toes for Fall/Winter 2013. This new collection features a palette ranging from sky and sea-colored hues of blues and gray to reds, burgundies and browns inspired by some of the city’s most iconic elements – Chinatown, the Golden Gate bridge and the Embarcadero. This fall mélange is mixed with texture, seen in three new Liquid Sand™ nail lacquers in earthy hues of taupe, blue and gray: It’s All San Andreas’s Fault, Wharf! Wharf! Wharf! and Alcatraz…Rocks. Liquid Sand lacquers dry to a textured, matte finish, infused with reflective sparkle. 

“To me, the women of San Francisco and the city itself really epitomize today’s multifaceted beauty consumer,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  “San Francisco offers a European flair with distinct West Coast attributes. These elements inspired a collection of urban chic nail lacquer shades, thanks to the sophisticated combination of high fashion and eclectic street style.

“With twelve colors ranging from moody grays and blues to garnet and ruby jewel tones, these lacquers are designed to accessorize fall’s hottest looks, from military details to winter whites,” continues Weiss-Fischmann. “On fall runways, models were seen wearing luxurious textures from head to toe. The three new Liquid Sand nail lacquers incorporate the texture trend through nails, with rich matte finishes in colors to complement the season’s fashion.”

San Francisco by OPI includes the following shades:

  1. i hope these colors are more exciting in real life than the press release. i am from the sf area so i really want to love these but the press images aren't that exciting.

    1. Yea, some of the colors do look all the same lol. Hopefully the polishes will be more exciting in person. :-)

  2. Geez Fall collections already?! Lol. I dont know what type it is here in Philly. It feels like everything but Spring. Anyway can't wait to see some swatches, I know I may want go pick a few of them.

    1. Hehe I'm not ready to think about fall yet either. I'm still solidly in summer/spring mode. :-)

  3. They look like something we have several times before - but I look forward to seeing actual swatches...

    1. Yes some of the colors do look quite similar to each other lol. I'm also looking forward to seeing the collection in person! :-)

  4. Isn't Muir supposed to be a dupe of La Boheme? Either way, OPI swatches are always better than the promos and based on that knowledge, a lot of these look really cool :)

    1. Oooh really?! That would be so awesome because I don't have La Boheme! Yes, the promo isn't too exciting lol. I'm looking forward to seeing the colors in person. :-)

  5. I am SO excited about this collection, fall is my favorite!

  6. They look ok. Nothing to special for me personally :)

    1. Hehe some of the colors do look quite similar to past OPI colors. Hopefully seeing the colors in person will make them a bit more exciting. :-)
