OPI Brazil Collection Spring/Summer 2014


I teased you with the new Beach Sandies from the Brazil Collection and now I have the rest of Collection.  As always I am presenting them as nail art not swatches.  I want you to see the possibility of these lacquers and hope you get some inspiration to try some of these designs!  Before I get started here is some information about the collection.

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 editionBeach 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 includes the following shades in both nail lacquer and GelColor formulas:
Next Stop…The Bikini Zone
This amethyst-toned pewter suits me just fine.

Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around
Nobody can stop me from wearing this creamy nude!

Taupe-less Beach
There’s nothing optional about wearing this enticing taupe.

I São Paulo Over There
He was sipping coffee with this mocha-toned beauty.

OPI Scores a Goal!
Make your point in this winning shade of rich chocolate.

AmazON…AmazOFF
I’m making the switch to this deep jungle green.

I Just Can’t Cope-acabana
Nothing lifts your spirits like this sunshine yellow.

Where Did Suzi’s Man-go?
He went to fetch her this delicious mango smoothie.

Toucan Do It If You Try
You have talent to achieve anything in this confident orange.

Kiss Me I’m Brazilian
Plant this warm luscious pink on me!

Live.Love.Carnaval
This vibrant and festive coral is the life of the party.

Red Hot Rio
A ruby red as hot as the most exciting city in Brazil.


For my first design, I created a floral dotticure using Don't Bossa Nova Me Around, Kiss Me I'm Brazilian, I Just Can't Cope-Acabana, Where Did Suzi's Man-Go? and AmazON...AmazOFF.


I absolutely LOVE this nude! It is just so beautiful!  And check out this two lacquers! So yummy!


The base of my flowers are the fabulously, yummy Kiss Me I'm Brazilian and I Just Can't Cope-Acabana.


I used Where Did Suzi's Man-Go? for the center of each flower.


Lastly, I added AmazON...AmazOFF.  





My next design uses OPI Scores A Goal! and Next Stop...The Bikini Zone.  I used a nail art brush to add some curved lines of Bikini Zone.  It adds a nice accent to the manicure.




I created a dramatic french tip (or gradient) using I Sao Paulo Over There and Red Hot Rio. I used a square nail art brush to add these fabulous brush-y tips.




I think this last manicure is my favorite.  It is so bright and vibrant, perfect for getting over these winter blues!
I applied two coats of I Just Can't Cope-Acabana and then added some dots using Taupe-Less Beach, Live.Love.Carnaval and Toucan Do It If You Try.





The lacquers in this collection are brilliant!  I love the mix of neutrals and brights.  They blend well together to create some fun manicures for the Spring and Summer!
