OPI’s first celebrity collaboration of the year is HOT…like chart topping hot! Kick off 2012 like a superstar! Nicki Minaj has teamed up with OPI and the new year is looking bright and fun. The hip-hop princess sunk her fabulous talons into the world of nail polish to bring colors that mirror her unique, bold style.
The winter blues will be a thing of the past when you saturate those fingertips in these diva-licious shades by the show stopping rapper. We have six Nicki inspired, limited edition colors to choose from. The names of the polishes are so lively, they make us want to pump Super Bass and dance.
Did it on ‘Em: Bright green! Think spotlight lime green. It’s reminiscent of the ever-popular OPI Shrek Collection’s Who the Shrek are You? However unlike the Shrek version, this crème polish has slightly yellow undertones, making it almost chartreuse. It’s bright, funky, and a lot of fun. Hmm. Isn’t St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner?
Fly: Sky blue, but 10 times brighter! It’s time for some fun in the sun ladies. This bombastic aqua crème polish will infuse this long winter with some summer energy. It makes for an absolutely gorgeous midwinter manicure.
Save Me: I’ve been saved! Who says the New Year’s party is over? It’s just started and it happens to be bedazzled in blue, pink, and orange confetti. But it’s not floating in the air. It’s in the bottle! This polish features small silver glitter mixed with colorful and holographic bar glitter all in a clear base. The best part? It goes on smooth and evenly. Bottoms up!
Metallic 4 Life: I have to say, this is my favorite color of the entire collection. Rock this shade all year round. It’s fierce. It’s black. It’s grey. It’s shiny. It’s HOT! It’s so Nicki! The shade is seriously glitter-ific. Silver hex glitter, that appears grey, complements the black base. It adds some star quality to your standard black polish.
Pink Friday: This perfect shade of pink has Barbie’s seal of approval written all over it. The crème polish is bubblegum pink and matches Nicki’s pastel-hued Pink Friday lipstick that she created with MAC. It’s girly and glam! Friday’s just got that much better. TGIF!
Super Bass: You know the collection wouldn’t be complete without something utterly edgy and cool. This polish is a glittery magenta. And did we mention? It shatters. Apply it over any color in the collection and you’ll have rock star-worthy nails. When applied over a lighter color, like Pink Friday, it stays true to its dark magenta roots. Apply it over something darker, like Fly, and it becomes a dark purple. The subtle glitter adds a unique twist that is worthy of Nicki Minaj’s name
