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 alsoÂ 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 inÂ OPI salons, spas and retailersÂ 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.”
OPIÂ is no stranger to celebrity collaborations; in the past, the manufacturer has worked with Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, theÂ Kardashian women and others.
