For some, it’s a scenic spot, where they can gaze at the panorama of nature’s beauty or maybe the lights of the city at night. Others allow themselves to be carried away by the rise and fall or pulsating rhythms of a favourite piece of
music. I find inspiration in the people who surround me – more specifically by the intelligent, creative, and highly capable women in my life -- women who manage to strike a balance between their extremely busy personal lives
and their demanding careers.
Women are amazing creatures. Just like jewels, they are multifaceted, their passions reflected in so many different ways – nurturing their families, serving their communities, excelling in their chosen fields, and expressing their
individuality in thoughts, words, and actions. Their lives are a canvas on which they paint every day, completely covered in shapes and colors, but always evolving and never finished.
These are the thoughts that filled my mind when choosing the destination for this collection, and I realized there is one city that epitomizes the multifaceted spirit of today’s woman – San Francisco. I love to sit in an open café, enjoying
an amazing bowl of cioppino and watching people as they hurry past – probably on their way to a museum exhibit, a theatrical performance, shopping, or to meet friends for lunch -- dressed in a sophisticated combination of high
fashion and eclectic street style that is urban chic and very west coast.
Sky and sea shades (Dining al Frisco, Haven’t the Foggiest, Peace & Love & OPI, Keeping Suzi at Bay, and Incognito in Sausalito); chocolaty hues of brown (A-Piers to Be Tan and I Knead Sour-Dough); east meets west coast reds of Chinatown (Lost on Lombard, In the Cable Car-Pool Lane and First Date at the Golden Gate); and the flower gardens of Golden Gate Park (Muir Muir on the Wall and Embarca-Dare Ya!).
San Francisco’s multidimensional spirit is captured in the collection’s release of three new OPI Liquid Sand™ Nail Lacquer shades: It’s All San Andreas’s Fault, Wharf! Wharf! Wharf!, and Alcatraz...Rocks. Fluid as sand in an
hourglass, Liquid Sand dries to a textured matte finish infused with reflective glints of light.
I dedicate this collection to all the women who inspire me and to the City by the Bay, where I can always find my muse in her diversity, her strangely chic ambiance, her undeniably unique style, and always – the perfect meal!
