Starting in January, you can "Lay Down That Base" with Gwen Stefani — not in the recording studio, but at the nail salon. OPI announced that their newest collaboration will be with the expectant mother, in a collection inspired by the Met Ball's theme of “Punk: Chaos to Couture.” The standout shade will be a red inspired by Stefani's signature red lip, named "Over & Over A-Gwen," which will be available in a boxed set with other nail-art elements like Swarovski black crystals, studs, and other appliqués ("Why no spiderwebs?" asks the Cut's Diana Tsui). The aforementioned Lay Down That Base, when applied as a base coat to the collection's other polishes, transforms to impart an extra-shiny, chromelike finish. 

But we know that half the fun of OPI colors are the pun-tastic names. Other shade names in the collection are Hey Baby, I Sing in Color, and In True Stefani Fashion. In response to the news, the Cut had a Gwen Stefani–themed nail-polish-naming competition of our own (hey OPI, call us!). Judge for yourself which Cut staffer missed their second calling (and gets first pick of anything in the beauty closet!) from the entries below:

- Hey, Baby Blue (Diana Tsui)

- If I Were a Rich Pearl (Kurt Soller)

- Ain't No Holla-graph Girl (Kurt Soller)

- No Doubt It's Red (Kurt Soller)

- Spiderwebs White (Benina Sax)

- Ska-nky Red (Stella Bugbee)

- Bindi, Done That (Stella Bugbee)

- Orange You Glad You're From Orange County (Stella Bugbee)
