Sation's Miss Antoinette Collection Press Release

Hi loves! 

 Please enjoy the following press release from the lovely people at Sation. 

Miss Antoinette Looks for Love in a Bottle

 Miss Professional Nail (Miss) has announced the launch of its Spring 2013 Campaign, Miss Antoinette. The collection is a shining salute to eloquent French beauty and Marie Antoinette’s glorious run as Queen of France. After a recent visit to Versailles, Miss’ Creative Director Staci Dao was inspired to develop a theme that spun a modern twist on lacquer and love. She created a color collection that reflects an exquisite Parisian color palette that would have been icing on the cake for the legendary empress.
 The collection offers a royally fun twist on Marie Antoinette’s flair for beauty and beaus. Her loyal subjects were forever fixated on her extravagant wardrobe, indulgent rituals and notorious love life. Oh, how times have changed. Women still get dolled up for potential matches, yet we’ve traded private love letters for public “likes,” and traditional courtship has been eclipsed by cell phones, e-mails and turbo-texting (a triple trauma to the nails!). Dao says, “Nothing beats old-fashioned face-to-face time; beauty and sparks of attraction are still what make us click with someone.”

Miss Antoinette serves up an amorous array of polished petits fours:
Love is in the Heir: Your hands will be on cloud nine with this glistening powder blue
Of Corset I’ll Call You: This romantic lavender-rose shade is off-the-hooks
Love at First Byte: A peachy, flesh-tone nude that leaves a lasting mega-memory
Dating the Duke: A dreamy, creamy cyan to channel your inner duchess
Delete Your Junk Male: Select this e-lectric cerise red to refine your style and suitors
Guillotine Grape: A warm, wicked aubergine that will turn heads – permanently
Let your joie de vivre shine through with a grand, gorgeous mani! The line is available to like, love and lacquer you up in salons and beauty supply stores now.
All Miss products are free of DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde.
Miss is an MBE (Minority Business Enterprise) certified company.

Make sure to be on the lookout for some Antoinette Inspired looks on very soon!!

ABOUT Oz The Great and Powerful
Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great wizard but into a better man as well.
“Oz The Great and Powerful” is produced by Joe Roth, with screen story by Mitchell Kapner and screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire. Grant Curtis, Palak Patel, Philip Steuer and Josh Donen are serving as executive producers. “Oz The Great and Powerful” opens in U.S. theaters on March 8, 2013.
