In honor of the 40th anniversary of Grease, nail polish company OPI has created a bunch of retro-cool lacquers based on the beloved movie musical.
The limited-edition collection includes 12 new shades, all available in their regular, Infinite Shine and GelColor formulas, plus three more “special effect” polishes that have a leather-like textured finish.
OPI even released a fun little video that pays homage to Grease and, of course, shows off their new collection of colors. Check it out here:
Now that you’ve gotten a peek at the polishes, it’s time to get to the fashion. Below are four looks inspired by the nail polishes and, obviously, the film itself. Each look has a bit of a ’50s-inspired flair, but can still totally be worn today. (Promise!)
“Teal Me More, Teal Me More”
This sweet yet casual look is perfect for a summer day spent drifting away. Just tuck a sleeveless collared blouse into these lemon-colored gingham shorts. (We love the girly ruffle details!) Add a few trendy touches, like bow slide sandals and a straw crossbody bag, as well as a ring that reminds of us of the sun. It’s the perfect complement to a striking teal mani.
“Pink Ladies Rule the School”
Show everyone you reign supreme on campus in this Pink Ladies-inspired look. Keep things polished but low-key in an off-the-shoulder tee, cropped jeans, and a pair of comfy mules.
Naturally, the ensemble wouldn’t be complete without the bubblegum pink bomber jacket and cat-eye sunnies. Add a few coats of OPI’s coordinating nail polish and you’re ready to go get ’em.
“Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milkshakes”
The days of drive-in theaters and jukeboxes may have passed, but you can still channel the era with this warm weather-ready outfit. Start with an adorable, vintage-inspired dress and quirky-cute embellished sandals.
Accessorize with these ear crawlers—an updated take on the classic pearl stud—and a square bandana, which can be worn around your neck, tied in your hair, or even secured to your fave handbag. Finish up with the pure, vanilla-colored “Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milkshakes.”
“Tell Me About It Stud”
Shape up on your next night out in a sultry black jumpsuit and platform sandals. This combo is so sleek, the only jewelry you need is a pair of Bad Girl Sandy™ hoop earrings. Don’t forget to add a few pops of color with OPI’s eye-catching crimson lacquer and a matching lip. I’m just going to go ahead and say it: this look is electrifying!
