OPI celebrated a colorful transformation in historic Los Angeles, California neighborhood Little Tokyo. Japanese lanterns strung across light poles led up to the brand’s festive event, complete with manis, spring shades and lots of hashtagged selfies. The culturally-rich area buzzed with locals on their lunch hour enjoying matcha lattes, mochi and goodies from the nearby market.
