Mariah and OPI have announced they will be joining forces to release a limited edition holiday nail lacquer collection coming this October. The collection will feature 18 tones that will go hand in hand with the festive nature of the holiday season perfect for every mood and occasion and has also been inspired by Carey herself. The polishes include reds and burgundies, maroons and chocolate shades as well as glitter gold, bronzes, and pearls (which are featured in the crème and glitter collection), while also including matte polishes in the assortment as well in the Liquid Sand collection for an icy frost finish. The Liquid Sand collection will be six of the 18 shades and is the leader of OPI’s new revolutionary polish technology bringing reflective sparkle to matte polish where you may choose from colors like icy blue, frosted pink, and more. With the matte collection, there’s no need for a top coat. Executive VP and Artistic director of OPI Susan Weiss-Fischmann describes why the OPI brand felt Carey was the perfect collaborator for this collection by saying: “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.” The Mariah Carey Holiday Collection will be found at professional salons, Ulta, Dillard’s, Trade Secrets, JCP Salons, and many more locations. Look out for the official debut October 2013!
