Ace Hardware and OPI collaborate to bring OPI’s most popular colors to life. Exclusive to Clark+Kensington interior paint collection, the partnership is the first ever of its kind. Which is surprising as color customization has been around for so long, it’s shocking that this is the first launch of this sorts. Then again, if any brand were to take shades from mani-pedi exclusivity to ambient wall hues, it would be none other than OPI.
“The OPI Color Palette by Clark+Kensington was curated to encourage consumers to bring fashion-forward colors into their homes through the hues they’ve grown to love in the nail salon,” said Mary Rice, President and General Manager of Ace Paint.
The OPI Color Palette by Clark+Kensington encompasses three collections comprised of six famous OPI shades totaling 18 new paint colors. Plus, each of the OPI Color Palette by Clark+Kensington collections offers five coordinating Clark+Kensington colors for homeowners who desire more inspiration for their color story.
