‘Beauty is a brand new space’: OPI teams up with Xbox for global nail polish collab

On Tuesday, global nail brand OPI launched a product collaboration with Xbox, strengthening the notion that 2022 will be a banner year for all things gaming in the beauty world.

The collaboration consists of a 12-shade range of polishes with game-inspired names like “Pixel Dust” (shimmery dusty pink) and “Sage Simulation” (sage green). Through January, the complete collection will be exclusively available at Ulta Beauty in the U.S. It will roll out globally to other major retailers like Target.com and Amazon in February. This is the first gaming collab for OPI, though the brand has a long history of unique collaborations, including with Hollywood films. As 2021 closed out with gaming, the metaverse, and NFTs taking the central stage in beauty marketing, the collaboration suggests that the momentum will continue this year.

“Several OPI staffers are avid gamers, and we’ve been watching the world of gaming expand its audience

Emma Watson’s Net Worth Reveals if She Made More For ‘Harry Potter’ or ‘Beauty & the Beast’

If you loved her as both Hermione and Belle, you may want to know about Emma Watson’s net worth and whether she made more from the Harry Potter movies or Beauty and the Beast.

Watson—whose full name is Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson—was born on April 15, 1990, in Paris, France. Her parents, Chris Watson and Jacqueline Luesby, were both lawyers.

A new curiosity shop in Colorado Springs shows the beauty of dead butterflies | Arts & Entertainment

The sight of dead things usually doesn’t bring a love song to mind.

Walking into this new downtown Colorado Springs shop, there’s a black Christmas tree covered with skeleton ornaments in the corner. Framed and unmoving insects hang on the walls alongside paintings inspired by horror movies.

It’s the owners, two bearded guys sometimes dapperly dressed up in flowery button down shirts, vests and ties, who make you want to play a Kacey Musgraves tune called “Butterflies.”

Maybe it’s because of all the butterfly artwork around the shop, but it’s also these lyrics: “And out of the blue, I fell for you.”

That’s how their love story unfolded.

Andrew Cronk and Chris Dantzler met on Sept. 14, 2020, for a lunch date. A month later on a Halloween trip to Salem, Mass., Cronk asked Dantzler to be his partner. By April, they had bought a house together in Monument. With
