New York Events: OPI Color Palette by Clark+Kensington Launch Party
OPI Nail Laquer just hosted an event to launch their collaboration with Ace Hardware and Clark+Kensington interior paint. They created beautiful color palettes for your nails and home based on the themes of romance, the artist and those who are Wild Heart themes.
Full sized interior designed roomscapes were presented at the party with the designers on hand to give out decorating tips and discuss their use of colors. The Artist’s room held an eclectic mix of patterns and bold colors like Mainely Lobster, Green Grape and Miami Beet. The furniture styles took from various world cultures. The romantic bedroom had sultry red or buff nude shades and softly textured fabrics.
Guests sipped on Prosecco and nibbled on what a fellow blogger deemed the best crab cake she had ever tasted. Nail stylists from OPI were on hand to give you a lacquer change to test drive the new colors.
I gravitated towards the Wild Heart theme. The bathroom vignette held cool, bolder hues. Nathan, a designer from the Wild Heart theme gave the best tip for using dark or bold colors on the walls. He said to complement the color by using artwork with a lot of white space, or a lot of bright white in your furniture. He paired the dark teal walls with white porcelain and slate grey curtains. The manicure I received from the OPI team contained Do You Lilac It and the pastel blue Can’t Find My Czechbook.
Paint is still the cheapest, easiest way to update your home when you want a change of style or try a trend. The same goes for trying out a new nail lacquer to freshen up your personal look. I never imagined I could make Ace Hardware the destination where I would shop for both!
