OPI Burlesque

It will take your eyes on a mind-blowing…

“It will take your eyes on a mind-blowing road trip” is how I would describe the new musical film starring the always fabulous Cher and the queen of pin-up fashion, Christina Aguilera, opening in theatres this month. In the film Christina plays Ali, a girl with big dreams of making it in L.A who finds herself fascinated by the glitz and glamour of the burlesque stage. Will she rise to the top in this colourful, tantalizing faux reality or will she become just another floater who loses herself in her ambitions? No matter what the ending turns out to be, by the looks of the trailer, I already know I’m going to enjoy the heart-stopping dance numbers, the naughty costumes and that electrifying signature voice of Christina Aguilera.

Of course, a film this high on the glamour meter just can’t be without its own line of nail lacquers from our favourite nail polish brand, OPI. The Burlesque inspired collection marks the third film collaboration for OPI this year and considering the wild successes of its predecessors “Alice In Wonderland” and “Shrek”, I’d say this collection is sure to hijack all the spotlight.

The collection consists of 12 shades divided into 2 lines: 6 shades packed with light-reflecting shimmers and 6 shades that will take your nails into a whole new dimension of glitterama. Be sure to check out the entire collection on OPI’s website where you can give your nails a virtual makeover by clicking on the different shades!

The Salon is excited to offer the Shimmer line to all you fashionistas and as an added bonus, you will receive a 10% discount on pedicure/manicure with every purchase. You can purchase individual shades or pick up the “Little Teaser” pack or the “Shimmer & Glimmer” pack.  These can make for great Stocking Stuffers! Just what are the shades in the shimmer line? Well let me tell you a little bit about each of these eye-popping colours.

Ali’s Big Break. A jelly based lacquer with flecks of gold micro-glitter captured within a hot, fiery red.

Let Me Entertain You is a bright fuchsia with the slightest hint of purple in the finish. Impregnated with hot-pink micro-glitter, this shade dazzles with all the right notes.

Rising Star is a rich copper foil metallic that brings on the sizzle. You’ll be feeling its warmth all winter long.

Take The Stage is another warm-toned foil metallic. A sensual reddish bronze, this shade is all about Ali’s burning passion for the stage—and it rocks!

Tease-y Does It! is by far the most intriguing shade in this collection with a delicate balance of dark plum hue mixed with gold and red micro-glitter. You can take this shade from being elegant to being delightfully sinful, the choice is up to you.

The Show Must Go On. Hot pink rules! This daring duo-chrome shade boasts a shimmer that flashes a subtle and yet seductive golden orange. It’s what true sexiness is all about.

So girls, what are you waiting for? Come to the salon and pick up your Burlesque inspired OPI shades before you hit the theatres and don’t forget, you get a 10% discount on your manicure or pedicure with every purchase!
