If you’ve ever had that perfect nail polish color—that shade that just makes you perk up or feel glamorous every time you catch a glimpse of it—then maybe you’ve wished you could have more of that color in your life. Now, thanks to OPI, Clark+Kensington and Ace Hardware, you can. Hugely successful nail lacquer brand OPI is partnering with Clark+Kensington to bring the polish brand’s color palette to your walls. The shades of wall paint+primer in one will share the memorable names that their nail color counterparts are known for, like “I Eat Mainely Lobster,” “Vant to Bite My Neck?” and “Suzi Says Feng Shui.”
The partnering brands hope to emphasize the “fashion-forward” nature of the collaboration, and at a preview celebrating the line’s launch, three life-size vignettes of a sitting room, bedroom and bathroom were assembled to bring the concept to life. The model rooms showed off separate but surprisingly complementary color schemes.
The sitting room was decorated in the palette they described as “The Romantic,” which had a dark, sultry, plush feel to it. The walls were painted the charcoal “Nein! Nein! Okay Fine!” against which a dresser in the classic “OPI Red” shade provided a little pop. Accessory accents aside from the black and white photographs were in the muted pink “My Very First Knockworst,” the bright “Chick Flick Cherry” and their rendition of beige, “My Vampire is Buff.”
The bedroom was styled in “The Artist” palette, which had a light, airy ambiance, despite some of the darker accents. The matte walls were painted OPI’s famous white shade “Don’t Touch My Tutu!” and the dresser was painted red, but the slightly pinker hue, “Miami Beet.” Accent decorations included the coral “I Eat Mainely Lobster” and the refreshing “Gargantuan Green Grape.”
The bathroom’s color arrangement, called “Wild Heart,” was a fun and unexpected mix of shades. The walls were painted the bright and yet surprisingly calming blue “Can’t Find My Czechbook,” and the most notable complement to this was the purple “Vant to Bite My Neck?” drapes.
Today, all Ace Hardware stores nationwide that have adopted the new Paint Studio will be carrying the OPI and Clark+Kensington paint palette, so pull out your nail polish collection and start plotting your summer renovation!
