Here's what Deborah had to say about the Resort colors:
"I found inspiration for my Spring 2012 lacquers from the beach this season! I wanted to create something that felt like a vacation no matter where you are; whether you're away or just dreaming of it.
The vibrant blue and shimmering green shades evoke a peaceful, relaxing feel that reminds me of being seaside. To me, these colors express that easy, breezy and carefree feeling you would have on vacation, which I'm hoping you'll channel every time you look at your nails.
I wanted to evolve from my signature glitters and develop something that was more universal and glamorous with a satin-like finish. The combination of shimmer and pearl used in Mermaid's Dream is the perfect evolution, and the result is wearable and unique.
On the Beach is the French Riviera in a bottle. Even if you can't get there physically, you will be reminded of beautiful bodies of water when you look down at your nails or toes."
I definitely think she nailed it. These colors absolutely remind me of the beach, and are just gorgeous. I pre-ordered these colors a few days ago and they should be available soon. I ordered mine from www.beauty.com, which says that they should be available February 10th. I've also seen them on www.nordstrom.com (says they have an approximate ship date of February 10th) and www.neimanmarcus.com (says they will ship no later than February 22nd). I usually stick with her glitters because they are generally very original and don't usually buy her crème polishes because they are a bit pricey, but On the Beach was too pretty to pass up! I do already have Nicole by OPI in "Baby" Blue which I think might be similar, but judging by the photos, On the Beach looks a tad more green and much more vibrant. I know that I don't own anything like Mermaid's Dream. I'm really looking forward to receiving these! Has anyone else pre-ordered or tried these colors yet? Until next time beauties...
