Nicki Minaj, OPI to release line of loud, colorful lacquers

October 27, 2011 |  7:00 am


It seems like a match made in heaven, so it comes as no huge surprise that Nicki Minaj is doing rainbow hued, candy land-esque nail polish colors with OPI.

There are six limited-edition colors all inspired by Minaj’s wacky, kaleidoscope, anything-goes sense of style. Pink Friday (named for her debut album) is a sugar-loaded bubblegum pink, Did it on ‘Em is a super bright shade of lime green and Save Me is a bottle of pink, blue and yellow confetti strips encased in a sheer silvery polish.

If you love Minaj’s bold look, but aren’t quite willing to don cotton candy pink hair (or green, or blue for that matter) or wear a leopard print leotard, then perhaps nail polish done in colors inspired by her ever-changing hair color and costumes is the next best thing.

The collection isn’t out until January, so it’s a no-go for Halloween (when I’m sure plenty of people will be dressed in the pop star’s likeness) and will sell for $8.50 a bottle at Ulta and most professional nail salons.
