First of all, tell us a little about yourself.
I started out as a beauty therapist, nail technician, make-up artist and hairdresser 11 years ago and went on to work in TV, film and fashion shoots, as a hair stylist, make-up artist and manicurist.
Since 2010, I have co-owned a hair, beauty and make-up salon in Liverpool, called So Coco Rouge, and I'm a lover of red nails! My favourite classic shades are Malaga Wine and I’m Not A Waitress!
What do you love about OPI and QVC?
I have loved OPI since the day I stole my mum's collection, many many years ago! It's the only brand I have used professionally, as I know I can trust the quality of the product for my customers.
I love the variety of shades available and the constant innovative products which they launch, like the matt top coat, 24 karat gold and liquid sand. I love QVC, as it is such a friendly yet informative place! You know you're getting quality products, at the best price, plus gaining the knowledge of the experts who represent them!
Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI co-founder and executive vice president, said, “These two iconic brands truly deliver happiness in a bottle – whether it’s a refreshing, invigorating sip of Coke, or a set of fingers and toes perfectly polished with OPI nail lacquer!"
OPI are famous for their celebrity, film and brand collaborations, and drinks giant Coca Cola is following in some pretty amazing footsteps. Gwen Stefani, Mariah Carey and Bond to name but a few! This limited edition collection features inspiration from The Coca Cola Companies best loved brands, including Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Cherry Coke, Vanilla Coke, Sprite, Fanta, and Coke Zero. So you can expect a wide shade range, with one to suit everyone!
Also each bottle of Coca Cola inspired lacquer features the OPI Pro Wide Brush, and their professional chip resistant formula, so these little bottles of loveliness will make it nice and easy to create a salon-worthy manicure from the comfort of your bedrooms!
What are the top colours, and your favourites?
I think all of the shades would look fabulous with a summer sun-kissed tan! Especially, Orange You Stylish, a bold tangerine, which would be the ultimate flash of colour peeking out from your summer sandals! For those of you who prefer deeper or metallic shades, don’t fret, there are lots on offer for you too!
My favourite is the classic Coca Cola Red, which is a creamy gloss shade – like the muted cream You’re So Vain-illa and Sorry I’m Fizzy Today, a bubblegum pink. For purple lovers, there's the gorgeous grape tones of Get Cherried Away and the deeper vampish A Grape Affair.
The OPI Coca Cola collection officially launches on QVC UK on Saturday 21st June at 5pm – hopefully you’ll see me and my classic Coca Cola Red manicure then!
