2016 may be winding down, but 2017 is already looking rather colorful. At the 2016 Wella International Trend Vision Awards, Coty Professional brands gathered to discuss the immediate future. OPI was represented by co-founder and brand ambassador Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, who spoke about a diverse range of topics including being a successful business woman, the importance of nails, and what professionals can expect to see in the coming year.

Weiss-Fischmann relates to working women everywhere, reminding us that OPI was made to be a product that lifts spirits. Weiss-Fischmann referenced her beginnings at OPI when she wore every hat possible (including bottling and labeling polish and even cleaning the floors). Looking forward, Weiss-Fischmann predicts bright blues will be big in 2017. Corals and other island-inspired colors will also be popular, which is why Fiji will be the locale of inspiration for OPI's Spring/Summer 2017 collection.

Weiss-Fischmann's message to nail techs was to remind them that they are at the forefront of bringing fashion and trends to client's hands. She reitirated that OPI stays true to crafting products that lift spirits.
