Carnival time with Brazil by OPI for Spring/Summer 2014!

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Today is Carnival Monday in Trinidad & Tobago!!   It’s also Carnaval in Brazil!

In honour, check out this recently released nail polish collection by OPI, Brazil by OPI!

From PR:

Brazil by OPI brings the colors of tropical rainforests and warm sandy beaches to nails and toes for Spring/Summer 2014. This new collection features a palette ranging from bright hues of red, pink, coral, orange and yellow to earthy tones of taupe, sienna, mocha and jungle green. In addition to 12 nail lacquers, the Brazil launch includes a set of four limited edition Beach Sandies Liquid Sand™ mini neon nail lacquers in bold purple, pink, turquoise and yellow shades with a textured, matte finish.

“With sun-soaked shores, tropical fruits, and lush flora/fauna, Brazil is such an inspiring locale,” exclaims Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP.  “I wanted women around the world to embrace the energy and playfulness for which Brazilian women are known. Through the Brazil collection, with shades drenched in color and charged with shine, women can express themselves, showing off their sexy, mysterious, fun and exciting natures.

“On spring runways, models were seen wearing lots of black and white, with bold accents of orange and yellow and muted elements of taupe and clay,” continues Weiss-Fischmann. “Brazil by OPI provides vivid hues to add a pop of color to a neutral-toned wardrobe, as well as earthy tones that easily transition from day to night.”

Brazil by OPI is available now for USD$9 each and available at opi.com and at professional salons, Ulta and other retail outlets.

NOTD: OPI's Hot & Spicy!

So Memorial Day has come and gone, so that means that summer is here, unofficially!!!!

Y’all know that summer is my absolutely favourite time of year.  Hot, humid, bright….that’s all me!!!!  I love wearing bright colours, soft fabrics like linen, the beach weather, I’m a true Caribbean girl!!!

Enough about me!

So this Memorial weekend had the best weather that I could remember in a while!!! NYC was just sunny and warm.  I hung out with a great friend of mine, Jackie.  She is the founder and author of CooklikeJackie.com.  She’s a foodie and enjoys the art of cooking, dining and everything involved with making food amazing!!!! You like cooking gadgets? Find some great reviews here.

So Jackie asked me to help her pick some colours to wear to break out of her no-colour phase.  I suggested OPI‘s Hot & Spicy from Hong Kong Collection.  She’s about NC 35 or so (I’m purely guessing!) and I think that that colour would look great on anyone with bronzey skin!!! Especially paired with summer whites!

NOTD: OPI Parlez-Vous OPI?

OPI's Parlez-Vous OPI?

I’ve been wearing this recently.  I think this is one of OPI’s best colours!  It came out with their France collection maybe a year or so ago.  A greyed out lavender, that has enough colour that it works for spring time or warm climates.  Great for those who want to wear colour at work, without going bright or doing the classic pale pink/creme/ white colour.  This has no shimmer.  Looks amazing on Black, East Indian, Latina or Arabic skin!!!!!!

Close up, no shimmer

Laters!
