If you’re the sort of person who wants your nails to match your geographical location, OPI can help. Last month, the company launched its new Chicago Collection of nail and lip colors, including red-brown “Mrs. O’Leary’s BBQ” and “Skinny Dip’n in Lake Michg’n” (shockingly not icy blue, but a shimmery nude). You should be able to find these at most nail salons, including Nail Bar, which held the world premiere of the collection.
