Flirtatious, eclectic, wild: three words that describe Betsey Johnson’s design sensibility (think sequins, tutus, and faux furs in all the colours of the rainbow). Yet her new lacquer collection for Sephora by OPI is surprisingly chic — dare we say tame? For us, that’s a good thing, as each of the hues is delectable, wearable and right on trend. We love Forever Wild (a deep plum), as it’s in line with the dark navy and burgundy manicures seen on recent Fall 2012 runways like Antonio Berardi, Milly, Naeem Khan and Karen Walker (to name a few!). Cartwheels On The Catwalk, on the other hand, is a lovely sea foam green: perfect for spring.
Still craving a little Betsey-esque quirk? It’s My Pink is scented with the newest Betsey Johnson fragrance, Too Too. Skull, lip and cheetah prints dance on the line’s selection of nail strips. Plus, tiny nail decals shaped like bows, cherries and lightening bolts round out the mix.
The limited edition collection is available at sephora.com. Full-sized polishes are $10.
