Nail polish brand O.P.I. has exceeded the seasonal release of new shades to add to their line of polish colors, and has instead revamped old classics.
O.P.I. Ink, Russian Navy, Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees, You Don’t Know Jacques!, We’ll Always Have Paris, and Lincoln Park After Dark have all been transformed into “suede” finishes.

Guest judge Natalie Portman was as ladylike as ever, always saying something good about the design before giving her criticisms, and in the end, Suede’s innovative criss-crossing of fabrics won her over. Heidi Klum even said she’s wear the dress if she were 10 years younger. Heidi, you don’t need to shave off 10 years to wear this dress.
