Mariah Carey creates nail polish inspired by her hit holiday album
They may not want a lot for Christmas, but hardcore Mariah Carey fans will probably put the songbird’s new nail polish collection at the top of their wish list this holiday season.
Carey has teamed up with OPI to create a the “Mariah Carey Holiday,” which includes 18 limited-edition polishes inspired by the singer’s best-selling album “Merry Christmas.”
Priced at $9 each, the polishes are named after Carey’s holiday song lyrics — “All I Want for Christmas (is OPI),” “Underneath the Mistletoe,” “Visions of Love,” and “Baby Please Come Home” — and come in shades like red, chocolate brown, glittery gold, and pearl. The collection also includes six new Liquid Sand polishes in colors like icy blue, frosted pink, and sparking graphite.
“Mariah Carey is truly synonymous with the holiday season. People around the world listen to her festive, iconic songs — ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ is a personal favorite – and these 18 lacquers evoke the warmth, beauty, energy and positive spirit that’s present in Mariah’s music,” OPI Executive VP and Artistic Director Suzie Weiss-Fishmann said via a press release from the beauty brand.
This isn’t the first time Carey has partnered with OPI. After signing a deal with the beauty brand, the diva released her début collection in August 2012. The company has also forged celebrity nail polish partnerships with Carrie Underwood, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, and Selena Gomez.
The Mariah Carey Holiday collection will arrive at Dillard’s, jcp Salons, Regis, ultra.com and other retailers in October.
