The lookbook contains an exclusive behind-the-scenes, full-length video from the collection’s photo shoot, never-before-seen interviews with Stefani, and tutorials featuring nail art created by The Illustrated Nail’s Sophie Harris-Greenslade.

The app also includes a contest component, where users can create and submit nail looks for the chance to win weekly prizes through February 7, 2014.
“OPI is excited to announce these two new digital components to enhance Gwen Stefani for OPI,” stated Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI founder and executive VP. “Collaborating with Gwen has been such a thrilling experience, and the lookbook provides consumers with a special glimpse into the partnership—from color development to product naming to shooting the campaign.”
“The Gwen for OPI app is unlike any other nail art app available, allowing users to virtually paint their nails, add crystals and studs, and place the final look on a manicured hand—with no templates to curb creative direction,” added Weiss-Fischmann. “Gwen and I will hand-select three contest winners each week, and we are really looking forward to seeing what users create.”
