These days, traveling to Europe may be next to impossible because of the unstable job market and the weak dollar. It’s during these times when I rely on my memories of Europe, particularly England and Spain, to get me through my dry travel spells.
It doesn’t take much to remind me of these beautiful counties – it could be as something as a song, a pastry, or even nail polish. Nail polish? Now, that may seem an odd thing to remind me of my European travels, but wait until you see why.
Just a few days ago, I walked into Ulta – the beauty product chain – and saw that OPI nail polish just launched a brand new Fall/Winter line called Collección de España – or Collection of Spain. I know – can you believe it! I was so thrilled to see OPI had finally created a line of polish as a tribute to one of my favorite European countries.
This fabulous new collection contains 12 brand new nail polishes all themed around Spain. Most of the colors are representative of the rich, dark colors of the old world country….
As is OPI’s tradition, all of the colors have themed Spanish names, reflecting Spain’s wonders, traditions, and history. These names include Pink Flamenco, Manicurist of Seville, Bullish on OPI, and Pamplona Purple. But, my immediate favorite for the new line is…..
Barefoot in Barcelona!!
I never knew neutral could be such a wonderful shade for nail polish! This very light brown, almost nude color, with a hint of pink, is perfect for just about any skin tone, which makes it great for everyone’s toes.
And of course, I love the name, considering Barcelona is one of my very favorite European cities to visit. The warm but subtle color reminds me of the moderate Barcelona climate and the gorgeous sandy shores of Spain’s Costa Brava, right off the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Ahh, Qué Memorias!
So, if you’re pining for Spain or just want to add a little Spanish sizzle to your life, try the new OPI Collection of Spain, and say hola to your new pretty toes!
