In 1915, The Glass Root Company designed the now classic contoured glass Coca–Cola bottle in Terre Haute, Indiana. One hundred years later, this unique bottle has become one of the most globally revered packages ever created. To celebrate this milestone, OPI created an exclusive Icons of Happiness nail color collection, featuring two new shades and six classic colors that pay homage to the bottle’s bold color and signature style. OPI – the world’s number one nail salon brand – is also no stranger to iconic bottles. Along with the Coca–Cola bottle, the OPI bottle’s matte black handle and distinctive silhouette make it one of the world’s most recognizable nail lacquer bottles.
Now, enjoy the essence of one legendary image alongside another, with the new OPI and Coca–Cola Summer Collection.
Seeing the colors of this new collection reminds me a lot of growing up with Coca Cola. The brand is synonymous with summer fun, picnics, and hot lazy days. Its fizz was cool, tasty, and very refreshing. Today, we continue to have Coca Cola pops available at family functions and get togethers.
I don’t drink a lot of pop myself, but I love the idea of wearing colors inspired by various Coca Cola beverages on our fingernails. One of my favorite sodas was Fanta Grape pop and the Grape Affair is sending a flash back of memories. This purple gets deeper with more coats. Of course the Classic Red color is sassy as ever and becoming to all nails. Cherry Coke is represented with Get Cherried Away. It’s a pretty magenta with a glassy finish. Sprite is so popular with family members. The Visions of Georgia Green reminds me a lot of the pop. It’s a glossy light green with flecks of darker green sparkles. There are two silver shades, My Signature is DC which has a bedazzling tinsel like profile, and Centennial Celebration which has a slight pewter tone. Both are nice, but I prefer the softer and tamer Centennial Celebrations. I’m So Fizzy Today is a gorgeous peachy pink, but I have a hard time figuring out which pop it represents. You’re So Vanilla is a creamy beige that was created just for Vanilla Coke lovers.
The Coca–Cola Summer Collection offers a splash of effervescent colors that look great all year around. Swing by your local retailer and pick your favorite thirst quenching color!
