OPI Downtown LA Collection

13 September 2021

New in… explore what inspired the OPI Downtown LA collection and see the colours before booking your next mani or pedi at the Aztec Spa, Torquay.

Downtown LA is an expansive playground for inspiration. With historic architecture, sprawling street art, and open sky, it changes from day to night inspiring artists with its spectrum of rich, vibrant hues.

Introducing the Downtown LA collection–dark autumnal tones like forest green and midnight blues and purples, and nostalgic pastels and metallics that transcend seasons are inspired by paint covered palettes, art in all its forms, and the artists who bring these vivid colours and creations to life. Let’s dig in.

OPI Downtown LA Collection

Dark autumnal icons

Shorter days and longer nights bring out deep, moody tones. Paint museum nights with an almost midnight navy blue (Isn’t It Grand Avenue), spark your creativity with a deep shimmery purple (Abstract After Dark, which is a glow-up of our iconic Lincoln Park After Dark), or wear our rich violet crème that will have hue juxta-posing.

Bloodstone hues

This season is being dominated by bloodstone–a mix of dark greens, pops of red, and rich, chocolaty browns. Channel this trend in our lush green (My Studio’s on Spring), a crimson crème red made for walking into galleries (Art Walk in Suzi’s Shoes), and a deep espresso brown that will bring out your inner artist (Espresso Your Inner Self).

Trans-seasonal pastels and metallics

Pastels and metallics are no longer one-season hues. Fall brings us a shimmery rose gold that’s a sketch of your imagination (Metallic Composition), a perfectly sweet lilac crème that makes a statement (Graffiti Sweetie), and a shimmery wash of dusky blue that will take flight on your nails (Angels Flight to Starry Nights).

You can explore the full collection here–all 12 shades are available in Nail Lacquer, Infinite Shine, and GelColor, with a select few you’ll want to dip into in Powder Perfection.

Share your shades
