NEW YORK — This holiday season, OPI is paying homage to America’s Muppet friends as they hit the big screen in Disney’s “The Muppets” with a limited-edition collection of Muppet-inspired nail lacquers available beginning in November at nail salons, Ulta and JCPenney.

With an all-star cast, including Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Kermit, Miss Piggy and the entire Muppet crew, the comedy opens in theaters nationwide on Nov. 23. 

“OPI is so excited to work with Disney to celebrate this long-awaited movie release,” stated Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI EVP and artistic director.  “Not only do The Muppets characters inspire fun, bright and joyful colors, the fashionable Miss Piggy lends her name to three high-shine pink-based hues, ranging from bold red flecked with silver to a multi-dimensional strawberry shade.”

This line features six shimmery reds and neutrals, as well as six glitter-packed shades, including:

  • Animal-istic: This wild bright red cannot be tamed!



  • Meep-Meep-Meep: Missing out on this fuchsia would make you weep, weep, weep!



  • Wocka Wocka!: The popular deep berry makes everything fun and merry!



  • Pepe’s Purple Passion: This deep, decadent shade is the best purple ever, okay!

  • 
Designer, de Better!: And this light metallic bronze is ready for the runway.

  • 
Warm & Fozzie: A feel-good shade of metallic copper.



  • Rainbow Connection: The rainbow glitter of your dreams.



  • Excuse Moi!: Ahem! This pink glitter has something to say!



  • Gone Gonzo!: The aqua-blue glitter is taking over the world!

  • 

Fresh Frog of Bel Air: A glitter that prefers the greener things in life.

New CVS facility is largest building in N.Y. state to receive LEED Gold certification

BY Antoinette Alexander

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS/pharmacy and design-build firm Gray Construction have announced that the recently opened CVS/pharmacy distribution center in Chemung County, N.Y., has been awarded LEED Gold certification.

CVS/pharmacy’s Chemung building is the company’s first LEED-certified distribution center. The 751,000-sq.-ft. facility’s LEED certification also is notable for being the largest industrial building in the state of New York to achieve the Gold level. In addition, it is 1-of-the-10 largest industrial buildings in the United States to receive LEED Gold certification.

LEED, a trademark of the U.S. Green Building Council, is a national green building certification program. Projects seeking LEED certification are evaluated for their implementation of practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. Standing for "Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design," LEED promotes sustainable building and development practices through a suite of rating systems that recognize projects that implement strategies for better environmental and health performance. Gold is the second-highest level of LEED certification given by the USGBC.

Examples of sustainable design elements incorporated into CVS/pharmacy’s new distribution center include:

  • Energy-efficient, white PVC insulated roof;

  • Interior and exterior lighting with daylight sensors and timers;

  • High-efficiency, low-flow plumbing fixtures;

  • Rainwater harvest system for irrigation;

  • Fluorescent fixtures and skylights; and

  • Construction process using local materials, recycled materials and waste recycling.

The Chemung distribution center, which opened in June, will support the inventory and fulfillment needs of approximately 350 CVS/pharmacy stores in the Northeast. Representing an investment of approximately $90 million, the facility will employ about 300 people by the end of this year and a total of 600 people when it reaches full capacity.
