OPI co-founder and brand ambassador, Suzi Weiss-Fischmann was quoted saying, "Tokyo is known for being on the forefront of nail trends—a perfect fit for OPI, where we don’t follow the trends but set them. In this collection, we are revisiting the 80s and 90s, with pop colors that we’ve given a modern twist, taking inspiration from the famous Harajuku neighborhood. Tokyo brings so much life to this collection, from its eclectic fashion, vibrant nightlife and world-renowned cuisine to the rich traditions including matcha tea ceremonies and zen gardens... Tokyo is home to some of the most amazing nail art in the world, which is why we wanted to offer six additional shades that are perfect for creating a variety of unique looks."
