Spring? Spring.

Posted on

Having a dearth of other news to post, and no new polish I want to dig out and swatch today, here’s some Spring 2016 news and pictures.  Yes, we just got our first snow of the late fall/early winter, but the fashion world lives and operates in the future.

The big twelve-polish set for next spring from OPI is called New Orleans, keeping with their country/city/region theme for such sets.  Cut the chatter and let’s see:

Color names:

  • Let Me Bayou a Drink
  • Humidi-Tea
  • Suzi Nails New Orleans
  • I Manicure for Beads
  • Spare Me a French Quarter?
  • She’s a Bad Muffuletta!
  • Got Myself into a Jam-balaya
  • Crawfishin’ for a Compliment
  • Take a Right on Bourbon
  • I’m Sooo Swamped!
  • Rich Girls & Po-Boys
  • Show Us Your Tips!

Typical groan-worthy and sometimes fun puns.  I’m only disappointed there’s no reference to beignets!

I think this looks like a great set, very spring-like.  Loving the blues, which, now that I think about it, also sounds very New Orleans.  There will be a mini set of four which I’m liking except for the grasshopper green, a dreadful shade for my skin tone.

I know, I know, I’m rushing the season.  Enjoy fall and winter first!  Colors, names, etc. are subject to change.  Release date unknown.

  1. thanks for the photos. You are right, some of the puns are cringe worthy. I love the gorgeous model pictured in this very New Orleans backdrop. IMO, the city themed OPI collections are a great chance for them to show more multicultural faces and skintones- and to show off the polish shades that are universally flattering. My only wish would be for some more pigmented, color saturated shades- New Orleans is known for rich foods, Mardi Gras, nightlife, culture, hot jazz- the pastels are not really evoking any of that for me.

    • Excellent point, Lorraine. I think New Orleans would’ve been better suited for a Summer launch where rich, bright colors could be showcased.

  2. I wish they would’ve done a Mardi Gras inspired glitter, like some Indie sellers have done. Not that I’m a huge fan of glitter but I feel like they wasted a perfect opportunity to do a fun glitter. Thanks for the pictures!

  3. Too soon, OPI. Too soon. Haha!
    I think OPI missed a big opportunity by using New Orleans as a Spring Collection. Wouldn’t it have been fab as a vibrant and vampy fall collection? Or a mini summer or holiday collection? Boo.
