It seems like just a short while ago that we moved into our home in Pembroke. It’s crazy to think we’ve been here for four months already and now into a new season! Halloween is just around the corner and the preparations have begun in our home. My daughter has her costume and the fall decor is coming out of the boxes. I need to buy some Halloween candy for the trick or treaters and am noticing Halloween programming and advertisements on the sites we frequent. Both my girls are like me and love the Halloween themed shows. For me, the scarier the better! With a 10 year old girl, however, I need to pick shows that are more age-appropriate.
One movie I remember watching every year as a child is “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”. We didn’t have cable or satellite when we were living in Nova Scotia so I haven’t watched it in long time. Now that we have satellite TV again I’m going to look for it in the TV listings! I think it would be fun for Bridget to watch a show that mommy watched as a young girl.
Bridget is already looking forward to it after painting her nails with the brand new Peanuts by OPI collection. This collection is based on Charles M. Schulz’s comic strip characters and was inspired by the movie, “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”. It features four fun shades including a cheery yellow, chic black crème and two black-based glitters.
What do you think of the colours? I can see why they picked them looking at the comic strip especially the yellow. It’s the same colour as Charlie Brown’s shirt.
With this collection, OPI wanted to celebrate the fun youthful nature of the Peanuts characters and capture the spirit of Halloween.
The Peanuts by OPI collection features the following limited edition shades:
- Good Grief!: The sunny yellow of Charlie Brown’s favourite t-shirt.
- Where’s My Blanket???: Linus awaits the Great Pumpkin in this orange and black glitter.
- WHO ARE YOU CALLING BOSSY?!?: This stormy black is no match for Lucy’s raven hair.
- To Be or Not to Beagle: Snoopy’s happy-dance of colours in a joyful glitter.
I wear a lot of black so that’s the first colour I was immediately drawn to. Then I thought why not try something different? I’ve been wearing the yellow shade- Good Grief!- lately. It’s happy and bright and also eye-catching! I’ve had a few people ask me what shade it was.
You can also find all four shades in the Little Peanuts mini pack. It comes with ten nail decals with fun sketches and popular phrases to add some playful nail art. The mini pack has an SRP of $17.50.
You can find both the Peanuts by OPI collection and the Little Peanuts mini pack in professional spas and salons across the country. The Peanuts lacquers retail for $11.50 each. Which one is your favourite?
