OPI confirmed that they have collaborated with the multi-platinum selling recording artist, Mariah Carey to produce two limited edition nail polish collections to be launched in 2013. After their amazing success with previous celebrity collaborations, (Nicki Minaj, Serena Williams, Katy Perry to name a few!) I believe that this latest addition will not fail to impress! The first collection will make its debut as early as January and will feature eight different colour shades. The second collection will be released later in the year.
Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director said,
OPI is thrilled to work with Mariah, an industry icon who loves nails and considers lacquer one of her favourite accessories. With her magnetic personality both on and off the stage, Mariah serves as a great inspiration for beautiful, bold colours.
Nails are part of her personality. I really have always looked for celebrities for whom nails are very important, and it is not something you just Photoshop on a picture. She was very much part of the color selection….She’s classic, but she can be edgy at certain times. She’s very elegant….It appeals to me also that she’s a mom. She’s a working woman and then she has this very glitzy, glamour side to her.
OPI is known for their kitsch polish names, so I can only imagine what they will have created with Mariah. “Honey” a sheer brown jelly, “Butterfly” a cream polish with a lots of multi-coloured butterfly shapes and perhaps even “Rainbow” an intense mix of coloured glitters! What ever she chooses, I will definitely be looking out for it!
