Calling all nail addicts!


Hi everyone, I hope you’re well.

Finally we are getting some weather to be cheerful about! Certainly makes an impact on how I feel. The sky is blue, the flowers are out and everything is so lush and green outside. Roll on BBQ season!

I just thought I’d give you a sneak peek of OPI‘s latest collection, which celebrates Disney’s latest release ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’, appearing in cinemas later this month. The story takes Alice back to the whimsical world of Wonderland where she time travels to save the Mad Hatter, who is not entirely himself.

The collection, which has been made just for QVC, features treatment and colour in abundance.

My nails have survived ripping up floors, knocking down walls, building a kitchen and installing a floor (just a few tasks I’ve undertaken over the past year and a half, working on my own home) thanks to Nail Envy. There’s a bottle of the original Nail Envy in this collection, but also included is the wonderful Nude Envy which I couldn’t be without. These are great treatments for strong, resilient nails.

The one I’ve fallen in love with most is Mad for Madness Sake (pictured!). It’s a true hot pink. A lovely solid opaque like the blue and, again, super for summer.

What’s the Hatter With You? is a stunning, rich burgundy cream tone. Finally is A Mirror Escape. This is a magical, glittering gold. Utterly beautiful!

Next Wednesday I will be with the OPI team at 2pm and we will be revealing this luscious, limited edition collection. Remember though, it’s only for QVC and won’t be around forever.

Hope you can join us!

Love Catherine xx

    Dear Catherine

    I do hope this mail finds you well. I hope your house is coming along well and given some time you will find the point where you are more than content and can see the end in site! Fingers crossed!!
    I do hope you can forgive me for changing the topic slightly however just wanted to mention one of your previous thoughts as it is touching my life at the moment. You mentioned in a previous blog regarding your Mother that you ‘Never want her to leave’!! Catherine, this to me is everything and as time passes is always on my mind.

    Like you I am at the stage now where I realise things are at a point where I know i must spend as much time with my wonderful Mummy as I can. My best friend and I discuss it as ‘when that call comes’ it will be too late.
    I am heading away on holiday with Mother next month and would encourage everybody who has a wonderful relationship with their mother to do the same when they can.

    Do hope your house is coming together nicely, don’t worry about the little flaws etc, and that whatever wall should be a certain colour, happiness within the four walls is everything!!

    All good wishes

    Dearest Lorn,

    What a lovely message. Please accept my apologies for taking so long to see it! I really do appreciate every word and especially like the sentiment regarding the happiness within the four walls is what counts most. You’re so right!

    I hope you and your mum are enjoying some great quality time together this May. You’ve reminded me I need some more with mine, too, so thank you again.

    Much love,

    Catherine xx

    Hi Linda!

    I’m so glad you love the collection. The colours are gorgeous and I adore the packaging, too. It’s a great way to keep all the collection together.

    Thanks for writing in!

    Love Catherine xx

    Hi Andrea,

    I’m afraid I don’t know the answer to that question but if you get in touch with QVC or OPI directly they may be able to help. If you tweet @SiobhainOPI I’m sure she’d be the best person to ask as she puts together the collections for QVC.

    I hope this helps you. I look forward to seeing these on air, too!

    Love Catherine x
