Seriously? I love these guys. Vu and Robert Nguyen are both super talented and I’ve been following their careers from the very beginning.

Last night I got to attend a cool Artistic Design Preview with OPI’s global artists as they workshopped new nail art designs for the spring/summer 2015 season.

After spending two full days brainstorming new nail art ideas and inspiring each other, the global team from OPI — which included brothers Vu and Robert Nguyen, The Illustrated Nail’s Sophie Harris-Greenslade, Canada’s Danny Phung and Chelsea Baart, Christy Graham, Kesha Scales, Adela Munoz, and Japan's Tomoka Dei — presented some of their creations to select members of the media.

The looks were photographed and videotaped (stay tuned for more in 2015) and will be coming to live at OPI educational events in 2015. Inspired by the polish giant’s next collection, Hawaii, the looks were created with OPI Nail Lacquer and OPI GelColor, as well as a variety of embellishments.

If what we saw last night was just a teaser, we think you’ll all be excited for what’s to come in the spring!

Here are some more pics from the fun event.

It was great meeting Kesha Scales from Memphis. Behind us you can see some of the photo inspiration the artists were given during the workshop.
