Hello Lovely Ladies,
You have all been patiently waiting for close up shots of this gorgeous OPI San Francisco Fall/Winter 2013 collection… and HERE is the post 😀
I have the distinct pleasure to share the Press Release as well as bottle shots of this collection with you. Please keep in mind that these shades will be available in August 2013, so these will be the deep, rich fall tones that we can look forward to after pastels and brights of spring and summer 😀

OPI Launches the San Francisco Collection
For Fall/Winter 2013
San Francisco by OPI brings street chic style with West Coast flair to nails and toes for Fall/Winter 2013. This new collection features a palette ranging from sky and sea-colored hues of blues and gray to reds, burgundies and browns inspired by some of the city’s most iconic elements – Chinatown, the Golden Gate bridge and the Embarcadero. This fall mélange is mixed with texture, seen in three new Liquid Sand™ nail lacquers in earthy hues of taupe, blue and gray: It’s All San Andreas’s Fault, Wharf! Wharf! Wharf! and Alcatraz…Rocks. Liquid Sand lacquers dry to a textured, matte finish, infused with reflective sparkle.
“To me, the women of San Francisco and the city itself really epitomize today’s multifaceted beauty consumer,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “San Francisco offers a European flair with distinct West Coat attributes. These elements inspired a collection of urban chic nail lacquer shades, thanks to the sophisticated combination of high fashion and eclectic street style.”
“With twelve colors ranging from moody grays and blues to garnet and ruby jewel tones, these lacquers are designed to accessorize fall’s hottest looks, from miltary details to winter whites,” continues Weiss-Fischmann. “On fall runways, models were seen wearing luxurious textures from head to toe. The three new Liquid Sand nail lacquers incorporate the texture trend through nails, with rich matte finishes in colors to complement the season’s fashion.”

Most of these shades are reds/blues/browns, but that is also what I associate with Fall colours. I DO love how the San Francisco shades all vibe together, creating endless accent nail possibilities 😉
I keep looking at these shades and cooing in my head 😉
I have a few 😉 to work though, so if there are any you would like to see first, please let me know in the comment section.

Suzi Weiss-Fischmann spoke a bit about what inspired this San Francisco collection during the official unveiling on Monday. She was going for an urban chic look; she wanted this collection to be representative of the ‘unstoppable woman’. This collection was inspired by the cafe-girl and the melange of colors you would see throughout San Francisco. As with other collections, this one is in part inspired by food, with the warm chocolate browns and caramels. Blues continue to be hot for the Fall/Winter season in different tonalities.
What do YOU think about this collection (for Fall/Winter 2013)?
Any shades you would like to see first?
