City Pulse

By Yasmin Jorge

Let’s rock our American Flags this Labor Day and wave them gloriously with patriotic manicured nails! We’re celebrating all that is the U.S.A., and that includes supporting beauty products and retailers here.

Made in America’ is an important term – it means the brand knows the significance of manufacturing on American soil and providing jobs for our citizens. This Labor Day, the federal holiday that pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers, we’re highlighting nail care industry leader OPI and cosmetics and skin care pioneer Merle Norman. (She was a successful businesswoman by 1931.)

OPI for Merle Norman is custom-formulated by OPI to help honor Norman’s all-American heritage. The Americana set features red, white and blue mini OPI Nail Lacquers. The main star is the exclusive Merle Norman OPI Nail Lacquer shade, Hussy – a ravishing red. Also included are OPI Nail Lacquers in Alpine Snow, Yoga-ta Get this Blue!, and RapiDry Top Coat.

Patriotism is so stylish and fun. Available at Merle Norman Studios. (SRP: $12.50)
