One would expect an Oz collection to have a more vibrant selection of colors (ahem) not be relegated to the generally boring ‘soft shades’ line, but, well. Let’s hope that if Star Wars ever gets in on the action, it’ll be something more in the vein of the James Bond or Muppet collections.
You can get up close and personal with the Bond swatches at The PolishAholic and Polish Addict: I’m partial to Live And Let Die and The World Is Not Enough, while The Spy Who Loved Me may make for a good Phantom Menace Amidala look.
The Skyfall line is OPI’s holiday collection, and should be available at salons and (some) beauty retailers now.
So why not Star Wars? The prequels especially have very lush color palettes (you could do something decent off Padme’s wardrobe alone) and the original trilogy is no slouch either. (Neutrals! Very popular.) They’ll certainly sell – nail polish addicts may not always know or like the source material, but they snap them up anyway. And there are 5 more 3D re-releases to promote! Now is the time.
I went a little nuts on the topic this morning on Twitter. Have an idea, or know of an existing polish that screams Star Wars? Tweet to @clubjade! (Or retweet this if you’re in favor of the idea.) I’ve made a Storify, under the cut, for the subject: Check it out for some suggestions you can go out and buy today.
Amanda Collier makes nerd-inspired custom-blended nail polish that she sells on Etsy in her Nerd Lacquer shop. They’re pretty heavy on the glitz and glitter – be sure to take a closer look at the Star Wars line (above,) A Glitter Far, Far Away.
