Peanuts by OPI brings to life Charles M. Schulz’s comic strip characters for Halloween 2014. Inspired by “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” the four new limited edition nail lacquer shades include seasonal yellow and black crèmes, as well as two black-based glitter hues.

“‘It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’ is a classic, beloved film,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Brand Ambassador.  Peanuts by OPI celebrates the fun, youthful nature of Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and Snoopy with four limited edition nail lacquer shades designed to capture the spirit of Halloween. With two crème and two glitter options, you can switch between a cheery yellow or chic black look, or try adding a layer of glitter for a unique finish.”

Peanuts by OPI includes the following shades:

  • Good Grief! - The sunny yellow of Charlie Brown’s favorite t-shirt.
  • Where’s My Blanket??? - Linus awaits the Great Pumpkin in this orange and black glitter.
  • WHO ARE YOU CALLING BOSSY?!? - This stormy black is no match for Lucy’s raven hair.
  • To Be or Not To Beagle - Snoopy’s happy-dance of colors in a joyful glitter.

Each of the four shades is also available in the Little Peanuts mini pack, which is sold with ten nail decals ranging from popular Peanuts phrases like “Good Grief!” and “Pow!” to sketches of Snoopy and the signature squiggle of Charlie Brown’s shirt.

“These stickers offer a playful, kitschy way to add instant art to nails,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “My favorite decal pays tribute to Snoopy’s many kisses – ‘Smak!’”

Peanuts by OPI and Little Peanuts mini pack will be available beginning September 2014 at Professional Salons, including Chatters, Planet Beauty and ULTA. Peanuts nail lacquers will retail for $9.50 ($11.50 CAN) each; Little Peanuts mini pack will retail for $13.95 ($17.50 CAN).


The color scheme of this collection is perfect, and the matte glitters are must-haves!

Get back in matte! Zoya is happy to announce the reissue of four of our most popular matte nail polish colors in Limited Edition (LE) for Holiday 2013. Perfectly packaged for the Holidays in our deluxe Zoya MATTEVELVET* LE gift boxes.

Get all of the color, none of shine with MATTEVELVET*, Zoya’s exclusive blend of matte base and subtle shimmer results in the most utterly wearable and truly stylish matte nail polish on the market today.

Reissued colors - Zoya MATTEVELVET* in Veruschuka, Savita, Posh and Dovima:

  • Veruschuka - emerald green matte shimmer
  • Savita - amethyst purple matte shimmer
  • Posh - ruby red matte shimmer
  • Dovima - onyx black matte shimmer

*MATTEVELVET nail color by Zoya is not intended to be worn with a base coat, top coat or speed dryer of any kind. Due to the unique matte formulation, color is not as long-wearing as traditional nail color. A completely clean, dry nail surface yields the best results for matte nail color wear. For best results make sure to always prepare nail with Zoya Remove + (3-in-1 nail polish remover, nail plate cleaner and new color prep.) prior to applying color. If a base coat is desired, we suggest Zoya Get Even.

Available at SPECIAL PRE-ORDER PRICING - Now through 11.20.2013 only.


This is so exciting! I know what you’re thinking—the matte trend has passed, so why reissue a matte collection? Because Zoya was the first to totally nail the matte formula! I reviewed Veruschuka (Zoya) a couple years ago, and you’ll note I even say in that review that the formula is a dream to work with.

Can’t wait until I get my hands on these mattes. I must get Dovima and Posh!

There’s nail art and then there’s China Glaze nail couture.  Reverse French manicure, half moons, ombre, basket weave, dots or racing stripes: nail designs are intricate and multi-colored.  China Glaze introduces a new way to get multi-color, unique nail art with fewer bottles of polish with the new color-changing Tranzitions collection!

China Glaze Tranzitions’ revolutionary new nail lacquer reacts when a clear top coat is applied, changing the color from one shade to another for a stunning effect.  Wear any of the six beautiful, color-shifting shades alone, or allow your creativity to run wild and create intricate nail designs by applying a top coat in specific places.  Try different looks using nail art brushes, free-hand designs or nail guides.  Because each shade changes color, you get two lacquers in one, creating an entirely new look with just one swipe.

The China Glaze Tranzitions collection features six shades, though with the color transition, you get 12 unique shades including:

  • Split Perso-NAIL-ity – Dusty pink shifts to fuchsia
  • Duplicity – Mint green shifts to vibrant teal
  • Modify Me – Periwinkle blue shifts to indigo blue
  • Altered Reality – Teal blue shifts to turquoise
  • Metallic Metamorphosis – Silvery grey shifts to bluish-charcoal grey
  • Shape Shifter – Smokey violet shifts to dark purple

How It Works:

Step 1: Apply a base coat.

Step 2: Apply two coats of China Glaze Tranzitions shade of choice.  Allow to completely dry.

Step 3: Lastly, apply one coat of clear top coat such as China Glaze® Fast Forward and watch the color change right before your eyes.

The China Glaze Tranzitions collection will be available in January 2013 at fine salons and beauty supply stores nationwide.

China Glaze is free of DBP, toluene, and added formaldehyde. China Glaze nail lacquers are available through salons and professional beauty supply stores nationwide. For more information, visit chinaglaze.com.


This collection looks really cool, and shows so many possibilities. You can keep things chic with monochrome French or half moon manicures, or bring some subtle nail art into a work safe manicure. Can’t wait until I can play around with these shades!
