OPI San Francisco for Fall/Winter 2013 Swatches and Review


I am super excited about the OPI San Francisco collection for fall/winter 2013. Why? Because the Bay Area has been my home for 41 straight years that’s why!

This collection features twelve new shades as well as three new Liquid Sand shades. Here is what Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, the OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director says about the inspiration for this collection.

“To me, the women of San Francisco and the city itself really epitomize today’s multifaceted beauty consumer. 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. 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.”

Zoya PixieDust for Fall 2013

Zoya PixieDust Fall 2013

Zoya PixieDust for Fall 2013 is brand new, available for purchase and features six new delicious shades with their textured, sparkly PixieDust finish.

Are you tired of the textured trend yet? I know I’m not! This is one trend that I haven’t gotten even remotely tired of. I think part of it is because usually they only require two coats and dry so quickly. But I love me some weird and fun textures anyway.

This collection contains some gorgeous shades, let’s dig in.
