Calling all Barbies, Midges and Skippers! Your mani and pedi need a “Barbiecore” update, and OPI is here to help. In honor of the upcoming “Barbie” movie from Greta Gerwig, OPI is launching a nail polish collection based on the iconic doll from Mattel.

These nine new shades are only going to be available for a limited time. So if you’re loving the fact that Barbie is having a moment in 2023, you better scoop up your favorites and stockpile those Barbie-inspired colors.


The new OPI polishes have fun names like “Hi Ken” and “Hi Barbie,” plus “Bon Voyage to Reality,” “Best Day Ever,” “Yay Space” and our personal favorite, “My Job Is Beach.” With hues like sunshine yellow, disco ball glitter, mermaid shine and Barbie pink, this collection has something for everyone.

You can pre-order the new OPI X Barbie collection on Amazon for $11.49 each, with delivery expected around the second week of July. Or you can check out your local Ulta starting on July 1, which is the official day that the OPI X Barbie polishes will drop.
