OPI’s Nail Polish for Horses…? Dancing Horses!

OPI’s First Short Film: Instinct of Colors!

The new short film created by OPI, Instinct of Color has us all talking. The video is definitely one of a kind in the nail polish world. It has beautiful women performing different types of dance as a dance off with Lady in Black, a thoroughbred two stepping horse who is named after OPI’s dark polish color Lady in Black.

What We Loved About Instinct of Colors


There is so much in this short film to love. Here is a quick list of what we loved most about this short film.

1. First off there is the amazing dancing routines that took place by the women and more impressively by the horse. Although most of the moves done by Lady in Black were real a few of them seemed to have been animated, still very impressive.

No Room for the Blues

2. We loved the horses hooves being painted in nail polish. Did they actually paint the horses hooves with the OPI nail polish colors? If yes, we would love to see that footage! What other animals can we polish up in nail polish…cats, dogs, ducks, birds, elephants, giraffes…

3. The music fit so well with the dancing and really set the tone for the video. The song used for this video was “Down the Road” by French DJ C2C. We loved it!

4. Last but not least are the four OPI colors chosen for this video. We have Need Sunglasses?, No Room for the Blues, Red My Fortune Cookie, and Pinking of You.

        Polish on horse hooves is nothing new (see Absorbine black shiny hoof polish), I used to show horses and we used this on them and made them one uniform color and shiny like black patent shoes. I wish I had thought of using other colors-it would have been outrageous in the 80’s and definitely would have caught the judges attention. LOL! I love, love this video!!
