Nicki Minaj by OPI & Link to Swatches

Here's a look at the official press release for OPI's Nicki Minaj Collection coming out in January 2012. If you'd like to view some nail wheel swatches of this collection, along with their upcoming Spring 2012 Holland Collection, Beautygeeks has a preview here.

Pink Everyday!

OPI Partners with Platinum Recording Artist Nicki Minaj to Launch Limited Edition Lacquers

OPI announces the launch of six new limited edition shades inspired by hip hop sensation Nicki Minaj, including a purple Shatter! Inspired by Minaj’s unique style, love of bright colors, and her debut album Pink Friday, the Nicki Minaj by OPI promotion will feature an array of bold hues, from neon lime green to pink.

“OPI is so excited to work with Nicki in releasing these six new nail lacquers,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “Nicki has taken the hip hop world by storm, but her music is only part of the equation. She’s also become a fashion inspiration, noted for her daring costumes and hair color both on and off the stage.”

Nicki’s eclectic look made including a new hue in OPI’s bestselling Shatter coat a must for this collaboration. The purple Super Bass Shatter (a record-setting purple that “shatters” before your eyes) is inspired by graffiti art and works when painted over any dry OPI hue. Adding top coat takes Super Bass Shatter from matte to glossy in seconds.

The line features five nail lacquers in addition to Super Bass Shatter, ranging from fantastic pink, rainbow confetti glitter and charcoal sparkle hues to two green shades in lime and teal:

Pink Friday Kick off the weekend with this pop! of bubblegum pink.

Metallic 4 Life This charcoal sparkle flies with the stars in the skies.

Save Me I drove for miles just to find this silver-rainbow glitter.

Fly I came to win, to fight…and to wear this aqua.

Did It On ‘Em A lusty little lacquer that loves the “lime”-light.

Nicki Minaj by OPI nail lacquers contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application. This limited edition promotion will be available beginning January 2012 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $8.50 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each nail lacquer.

  1. I am looking forward to the glitter and the blue one!


  2. I'm also looking forward to the blue glitter.

  3. I'm not really digging the Nicki Minaj collection, but the Holland collection looks awesome! Especially "I Don't Give a Rotterdamn!" and "I Have a Herring Problem." I think I like that collection because I'm of Dutch descent.

  4. Thanks for the link to the swatches - I never can tell a thing from the icky graphics OPI puts out - I think they do it on purpose so no one can really tell what's coming and rush to dup it.

  5. I want the top two, and the bottom two!
