Posted on 15 November 2012 by DELCommInc

SWDO holidays 2012

Oh the weather outside is frightful… luckily, your hair, nails, and skin don’t have to be as well.  We compiled the coolest beauty products that would make anyone a little more cheerful this holiday season.

1. Make Up For Ever Holodiam Powder #302 & #303

What says “holidays” more than a little glitter?  Make Up For Ever packs on the punch with these limited edition Holodiam Powders in shades 302 (plum with pink, purple, and turquoise highlights) and 303 (white with blue, green, and gold highlights).  Sprinkle some of this “fairy dust” on your lids for a glamorous smoky look (302) or use it as a highlight to brighten up your day or evening (303).

Available at Sephora. 

2. The Man with the Golden Gun 18 Karat Topcoat by OPI

Show me your “goldfingers”!  As part of their limited edition Skyfall collection, OPI has released a special topcoat with real 18 karat gold flakes to layer over any mani.  Rock it on its own or layered over another colour.  Remember though, make sure it’s shaken, not stirred.

$37.50 at Chatters Beauty Supply and Salon.

3. Bangstyle Flexible Hold Spray                 

No, this grunge bottle isn’t a can of spray paint; instead, lock in style with a flexible hold with Bangstyle.    Create soft, touchable hold without the sticky residue.   Every hairstyle is a work of art with Bangstyle.

$20, available at select salons.

4. Joico K-PAK Revitalize Bio-Advanced Restorative Treatment

Get freshly dried hair in a flash!

OPI Launches Holland Collection for Spring/Summer 2012: OPI celebrates colour with the Holland Collection for Spring/Summer 2012.

Posted on 15 January 2012 by DELCommInc

Holland Display.highres

Inspired by the country’s range of stunning shades – as seen in vivid tulips, windmill-dotted hillsides and bustling canals – the collection’s twelve shades offer a mixture of sophisticated neutrals and highly-pigmented brights.

“Holland has a very unique, vibrant beauty to match its open-minded nature,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI executive VP & artistic director. “Spring is the season of colour, and the Holland Collection provides an array of pink, coral and orange hues that capture this energy. The bright lacquers are married with neutrals in new variations like red clay and sea green.”

A sequence of electric brights, including a sun-lit orange (A Roll in The Hague), a hot coral-red (Red Lights Ahead…Where?) and two perfectly pretty pinks (Kiss Me on My Tulips and a light-catching Pedal Faster Suzi!) complement their cooler counterparts in hues of glistening purple (Dutch ’Ya Just Love OPI? and Vampsterdam), while elegant neutrals (Gouda Gouda Two Shoes, Did You ’ear About Van Gogh? and Wooden Shoe Like to Know?) meet two shimmer-laced blues (I Have a Herring Problem and I Don’t Give a Rotterdam!) and a creamy sea green (Thanks a WindMillion).

“Wearing these colors on fingers and toes will accessorize the season’s hottest trends,” remarks Suzi. “The varied palette of colors accentuates the looks that walked the runway, from colored pants and ladylike frocks to long, blousysleeved tops and dramatic patterns.”

Holland by OPI includes the following shades:
A Roll in The Hague: Take advantage of this frisky little orange.
Red Lights Ahead…Where?: This coral-packed red is the hottest in the district.
Kiss Me on My Tulips: A smooch-worthy shade of hot pink.
Pedal Faster Suzi!: This pink lavender shimmer will have you “wheeling.”
Dutch ’Ya Just Love OPI?: All of Holland hollers for this crowd-pleasing plum.
Vampsterdam: A deep purple for a divine diva.
Did You ’ear About Van Gogh?: Rumor has it…this sandy bisque is a work of art.
Thanks a WindMillion: You totally deserve this breezy sea green.
Wooden Shoe Like to Know?: It’s no secret…everybody loves this shimmery chocolate-brown.
I Have Herring Problem: What’s that you say? I need to “sea” this shimmery green-blue?
I Don’t Give a Rotterdam!: This sassy steal-blue shimmer means business!
Gouda Gouda Two Shoes: Take a walk on the wild side with this robust rose.

Holland Collection nail lacquer shades contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and each includes OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application.

Holland Collection by OPI will be available February 8, 2012, at Professional Salons and Spas for $10.95 CAN suggested retail for each nail
lacquer.
