OPI's First Ever Short Film

Hey loves! Please take the time to watch this very unique and interesting short film by OPI
On Friday 26th October, the world’s leading professional nail care brand, OPI releases their first ever international short film/video by award winning film director Han Emanuel, featuring a dancing horse, professional dancers and a lot of colour.
OPI pays hommage to its Culture of Color branding through a surrealistic dance-off competition between a horse and 4 female dancers; each possessing their own style of dance and their own individual shade of OPI lacquer; illustrating that OPI nail lacquer can be used as a means of self-expression and individualism.
In the video, the 4 professional dancers communicate their chosen colour through dance whilst competing against a very talented dancing horse. The well known and talented horse, best know for his staring role in the movie The War Horse, is named Lady in Black, otherwise known as OPI’s Black Onyx.  The horse mimicks the dance steps of the women, performing different dance styles such as ballet, tap, hip hop and freelance.
Each of the women are wearing a difference shade of OPI - Pink-ing of You, Red My Fortune Cookie, Need Sunglasses? and No Room for the Blues.  Whilst the horse, Lady In Black, mirrors the dancers by wearing the same shade of nail lacquer on his hooves. 
The OPI video clip is set to the song Down the Road by French DJ band C2C.
P.s the horse in the video was the horse that stared in the movie War Horse! Pretty cool :-) 


  1. That's a pretty cool video. I like the horse :D

  2. Me too. I thought it was computer generated but the horse can actually dance! lol it's been trained. Super cool

  3. I can't believe I didn't see this before! It's brought 2 of my loves together - horses and nail polish! Some of the moves that the horse is doing are classical dressage moves (which is pretty much like horse ballet), but there are a couple computer generated bits. Love it!
