While Mariah Carey is preparing for her fourteenth (yes, fourteenth) studio album and taking her place at the American Idol judging table, the 42-year-old singer has also inked a new deal with nail lacquer OPI.
The brand will launch two nail polish collections by Carey early next year. The first collection of eight shades will debut in OPI salons, spas and retailers worldwide in January, while another collection will hit shelves later in the year.
“Nails are part of her personality,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, executive vice president and artistic director of OPI. “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.”
OPI is no stranger to celebrity collaborations; in the past, the manufacturer has worked with Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, the Kardashian women and others.
