Nails by Nicki Minaj: The Launch of a New OPI Collection
Nicki Minaj may be a chart-topping pop-rapper, but it is more than her music that is getting people’s attention! Nicki’s outlandish and eccentric style is turning heads. Elaborate candy-colored wigs, bold, bubble gum pink lipstick and leopard print unitards have all become synonymous with Nicki!
Some describe Minaj’s style as “really weird” or “strange,” but celebrity style has taken a drastic turn in the past few years and pop notoriety is as much about the talent as the look. Performance art is the new chart topper!
Lady GaGa pioneered the trend during the rise of her fame in April 2008 after releasing the ultimate dance anthem “Just Dance.” She shocked us all in wacky architectural attire, sky-high heels and edgy blonde wigs. Just three months later when Katy Perry hit the scene with her controversial single “I Kissed A Girl,” everyone was talking about Katy’s eye catching pin-up girl style. And Ke$ha made her mark with her glittery grunge style and bold eye makeup.
Fast forward to the year 2011 and behold Nicki Minaj. Her signature look is a amalgamation of Gaga, Perry and Ke$ha all wrapped into one super star! Minaj’s style is extraordinary and mixes perfectly with her music. Her sound is unique, her lyrics are spot on and her place in the male dominated rap world is secure….Nicki Minaj, like those pioneers before her, is a bright light for those coming up the pop charts.
With all the buzz surrounding Nicki and her unique style, it is fitting that OPI is launching a collection of Nicki nail polishes. Launching in January 2012, this exciting collection will feature glitzy colors like exotic aqua, electrifying lime green, girly pink and even a deep purple shatter! And, at $8.50 a bottle, everyone can put a little bit of Nicki glam on their nails! Nicki is no stranger to beauty collaborations. Last year Nicki partnered with MAC for a lipstick collection inspired by her album, "Pink Friday."
Choose one (or all!) of these six fun and funky colors.
