With spring and summer comes a whole new appreciation for nail polish. American nail polish manufacturer OPI has come out with its latest OPI Retro Summer 2016 nail polish collection, and the result is totally retro. The shades the collection offers are making me more excited than anything about the coming warm months, as each is a solid shade of a luxurious color; the collection serves as a reminder that summer is just around the corner. It’s about time, too!
The possibilities for nail polish takes on a whole new meaning once the days grow warmer; sandals and other peep toes are plentiful, marking the time painting your toenails was made for. Experiment with the six new colors in this line, and you’ll be looking fabulous from head to toe – literally. The colors in this small collection were inspired by the 1970s, and the shades found in the fashion trends of that time, which is where the retro name comes into play.
The collection will be released around the world in May, so that will be coming up in no time at all. So take a look at the shades, as listed in this article, and get ready to place your order. All six colors are irresistible, and will have you feeling fantastic in the sun in a way nothing else could do for you. The “retro” color of the nail polish is a great, subtle way that will complement the retro trends that have been spotted with such frequency on the runways for the past few seasons; the style translates particularly well for summer, so just put on the polish and enjoy your day out on the town, while always carrying with you a relaxed, beachy tone to remind you of your most relaxing times!
