Celebrity Inspired Polishes

OPI has been busy creating Celebrity Polish Lines lately. I liken their desire to have all these celebrities with lines to the three little bears. Justin Beiber nail polish? NOPE - OPI you are WAAYYY to cold with that one. He is a 16 year old boy, what does he have to do with nail polish? All I see here is a desire for more profits. Yuck! Then Serena Williams comes along and now she is going from being one of the best tennis pro's to nail tech. Um OK, I can't knock her for that, I always wanted to be a nail tech too. Plus she's a girl who loves polish. But the obvious choice factor for this one? I would say OPI is getting warm here. The latest announcement from OPI is Katy Perry. Katy is fresh, young, female, always has something going on with her nails and an enormous fan base (that just doesn't include me.) So I say OPI is hot with this one! This one makes sense. But now it just seems like over saturation of celebrity inspired polish lines. If it were me, I would have gone after some different celebs. Here are my top choices.

Rihanna - She seems to change her manicures as much as I do. She is not afraid of experimenting with different colors or having fun with her nails. They are sometimes long, sometimes short, but always painted. Her makeup and nails are always flawless.

Gwen Stefani - From rocker chic to Fashion designer, her nails are always flawless. She rocks vampy colors, bright colors and even white polish. With her sense of style, she could rock a great polish collection.


Lady Gaga - Who can deny the power of Gaga? I wasn't a fan, then I was, then I wasn't. I mean I am just unsure with her, but like Rihanna, her nails are always done and she certainly isn't afraid to try something new or different. Besides with the way people want what celebrities have, she is probably one of the hottest ones to go after right now!  OK so Lippman already came out with a Gaga collection, smart on them, poor on OPI for not thinking of it first!

What do you think? Are you excited about the upcoming OPI collections? Which celebrity do you think should have their own polish line?
