OPI, the #1 Professional nail salon brand worldwide, is proud to announce the launch of the Me, Myself, and OPI NFT Collection of digital artworks. Inviting the community to experience the vibrant colours of their new Spring 2023 colour collection, these artworks will be released through [ Ledger ] Market with smart contracts provided by Culture Vault. 

The Me, Myself, and OPI NFT Collection is a collaboration between OPI and independent artists and creators, bringing new voices and perspectives to beauty and digital collectibles. Created by artists Serwah Attafuah, Jessica Ticchio, Paulina Almira, and Mikaela Stafford x Banoffee Music, each artwork captures the essence of the unfiltered brights and pastels in our spring collection, like NFTease Me, Clear Your Cash, and Pink in Bio. The artworks range from illustrations encompassing abstract shapes and lines, to intricate designs and patterns that articulate the artists’ visions of the brand’s aesthetic.

Artist Serwah Attafuah said, "I'm really excited to be working with OPI, as a secret passion of mine is beautiful and getting glam. To be able to see one of my favourite beauty brands enter the web3 space by uplifting female artists is super incredible." 

OPI is proud to provide independent artists and creators with a platform to showcase their work while also offering OPI fans a new way to experience the brand.

“We are so excited to launch the Me, Myself, and OPI NFT Collection to inspire our OPI community and provide them with new ways to discover self-expression,” said Rekishia Jessup, SVP of Global OPI Marketing. “The NFT Collection is an incredible collaboration between creators who live on the cutting edge of visual art and the colour creators of OPI. We can’t wait for you to see how each digital artwork brings the vibrant shades of the spring collection to life virtually, and how it will inspire your creativity in the salon and at home.” 

For Artist Jessica Ticchio, the collection is a new challenge to push the boundaries of her work and medium.

"We're in a time where art can be created through processes and mediums completely beyond the imagination of our past. Taking inspiration from the colour of the new OPI collection, I've handcrafted a sculpture in Virtual Reality in a bid to capture the fluidity, freedom, and unlimited possibility of this new, wild digital world.” 

"Wella Company's entry into web3 marks a new chapter in our journey as a company and we are thrilled to embark on this exciting adventure with our OPI brand. Our entry into the web3 space is a key component of a multifaceted 360° integrated marketing campaign. This first collection of NFTs will allow us to learn about the practical potential of web3. We are happy to partner with these amazing artists, Culture Vault, and [ Ledger ] Market on this journey,” said Chris Chesebro, Wella Company’s Global Chief Digital Officer.

OPI's collaboration with [ Ledger ] Market shows its commitment to offering its customers and fans a secure path to owning digital collectibles. In an effort to continue funding and championing self-expression in new ways, proceeds will go to the digital artists who brought the NFT collection to life.

Ariel Wengroff, VP of Communications at Ledger said,  “Women are still underrepresented within Web3 as creators and collectors. Ledger celebrates OPI’s commitment to supporting female-identified creators, bringing more people into the digital asset space, and letting artists take the front stage of the program. The vibrancy of individualism, and bridges the relationship between IRL and digital by highlighting their unique colourway is at the heart of what Ledger provides, along with our uncompromising security.”

Beginning February 2023, Me, Myself, and OPI Collection Nail Lacquers will retail for MSRP USD$11.49 each and Infinite Shine Long-wear Lacquers will retail for MSRP USD $13.99 each at Professional Salons, as well as OPI.com, ULTA, ulta.com and Amazon Beauty via Amazon.com.
