Microsoft has revealed a collaboration between Xbox and nail polish brand OPI and, as expected, each color is themed after something to do with Xbox.
While the nail polishes and the colors they come in look quite nice, there’s another interesting aspect to this collaboration. Purchasing the Xbox-inspired Spring 2022 OPI Collection gets you exclusive in-game Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 content. Ride or shoot in style with the best-looking nails your controller has ever seen.
As for the in-game content, the Xbox Wire blog post revealing this collaboration doesn’t exactly spell out what it is, but some pictures reveal that the collection gets you a Halo Infinite armor coating and what appears to be a skin for a car in Forza Horizon 5 (although it could be straight up an entire car). Here’s a look at both:
“The full collection will be available at retail in the U.S. at ULTA when the partnership is announced and then globally starting in February where OPI products are sold,” the announcement reads. “With every qualifying purchase, U.S. fans can unlock hue-matched, in-game content for Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite starting February 1.”
The blog also reveals a competition where players can possibly earn an Xbox Wireless Controller that matches an Xbox x OPI nail polish. More details can be found on the Xbox Wire post here. OPI’s nail lacquers will retail for $10.50 each and Infinite Shine colors will cost $13. There are two other OPI options as well – GelColor and Powder Perfection – but they’re only available via in-salon professional services only.
Here are each of the polishes and the descriptions for them:
