There’s no hiding it; we are obsessed with celebrity culture. We can’t take our eyes off the industry’s top gossip magazines, and our TiVo is forever-packed with juicy E! News specials, from Lindsay Lohan’s most recent breakdown, to all the details on Beyonce and Jay-Z’s power baby of the year. Can you blame us? The most talented and mysterious stars keep us on the edge of our seats with non-stop romance, drama and unexpected scandal.
But for those of us who dare to take our celebrity obsession to a whole new level, the interest doesn’t stop at cheap entertainment thrills. Star swag enables us to look and feel like a bona fide celebrity. New retail trends range from celebrity fashion lines, to celebrity perfumes, celebrity make-up and now, celebrity nail polish. Look like an A-List star from finger to toe with a little help from OPI, one of the world’s leading nail lacquer brands with a large Hollywood pull.

Kardashian Kolor for Nicole by OPI Nail Polish Collection
It should come as no surprise that the Kardashian Klan now debuts a celebrity nail polish line. I mean, what don’t they have? The Kardashian Kolor for Nicole by OPI Nail Polish Collection features 14 kaptivating nail lacquers inspired by, and named for, the famous pop culture family. Well, all the femme fatale family members at least. From vibrant magenta, to subtle rose, stunning gold and mature maroon, you’re sure to find a color that suits your style within this hot collection. A few must-see shades include Kim-pletely in Love, a soft and feminine rose; Kourt is Red-y for a Pedi, a bright and timeless crimson red; Rainbow in the S-kylie, a colorful and youthful blend of sparkles; and Disco Dolls Listen to Your Momager, an energetic gold shimmer.

Nicki Minaj OPI Nail Polish Collection
Nicki Minaj quickly emerged as one of the industry’s hottest hip hop divas this year. And her influence doesn’t stop at the recording studio. While her consecutive hits top the charts, Nicki makes headlines for her daring costumes and hair color, both on and off the stage. And like any good fashion icon would do, Nicki jumped at the chance to launch her own nail polish line with OPI. The Nicki Minaj Collection is set to debut in January 2012, and will feature a variety of statement-making shades. Designed to reflect the star’s outrageous persona, the colors include Pink Friday, a creamy bubblegum hue; Metallic 4 Life, a mysterious charcoal sparkle; Super Bass Shatter, a purple, graffiti art-inspired topcoat effect; Save Me, a playful silver-rainbow glitter; Fly, an electric aqua; and Did It On 'Em, a bold fluorescent lime that will have everyone looking. The Nicki Minaj Collection will be available for a limited time at Ulta, JC Penny and select retailers starting January 2012. Learn more on opi.com (pictured below)
Katy Perry OPI Nail Polish Collection
We just can’t get enough of Katy Perry. When she first kissed a girl, and liked it, we never knew she would develop into one of the hottest pop music stars of our time. And we can’t help but obsess over her personal life, either. Katy Perry and Russel Brand make one of the most adorable celebrity power couples of the moment. It only makes sense that OPI would choose Katy Perry for a limited-edition celebrity nail polish collaboration, which first debuted for spring 2011. The Katy Perry Collection aims to capture her dazzling persona and vivacious spirit, not to mention her infamously vibrant multi-colored locks, with five unique and ultra-girly shades. Choose your favorite from the Teenage Dream, a feminine and sparkly pink hue; Not Like the Movies; a dramatic metallic silver look; Last Friday Night, bright blue with a hint of sparkle; The One That Got Away, a deep and intense dark berry; and Black Shatter, the signature black top coat that creates texture with cracked patterns when applied over other polishes.

Justin Bieber One Less Lonely Girl OPI Nail Polish Collection
Teen queens would do, and wear, anything just to be that much closer to their pop icon Justin Bieber. No longer are CDs, concert tickets and posters enough; fans now need their dose of Bieber Fever in a compact lacquerer bottle. Don’t get it twisted; Bieber didn’t create a nail polish line for guys, but rather a line inspired by and dedicated to his millions of female fans. And as can be expected, the Bieber polishes are oh-so-glittery, shining bright in a variety of vibrant shades that are just perfect for the big junior high dance. The Justin Bieber Collection features One Less Lonely Glitter, a dazzling lavender; Prized Possession Purple; Give Me the First Dance, a glimmering silver; Me + Blue, a dramatic and romantic dark blue; OMB!, a beloved bright red; and Step 2 the Beat of My Heart, the ultimate look with heart-shaped glitter. One Less Lonely Girl debuted winter 2010 at Walmart stores and the follow-up collection will introduce fan-designed shades in 2012. Learn more on justinbiebermusic.com
Serena Williams Grand Slam! OPI Nail Polish Collections
I would never want to mess with Serena Williams on the tennis court, or anywhere for that matter. But I wouldn’t exactly consider Serena my go-to girl for beauty tips and trends. Apparently, I should reconsider. This sassy tennis pro launched a series of fierce nail polish collections with OPI throughout the year, intended to coincide with her globe-trotting tournaments. And even more surprising, Serena is also being trained as an official nail technician at Palm Beach Nail School in Florida. Very interesting career back-up plan. The first Serena-backed OPI collection, Grand Slam! Australia, launched in January for the Australian Open and featured the bold shades Smashing, a glowing lime green, and Black Shatter, a dark hue with black crackle. In May, the Grand Slam! France collection embraced the light with Spark de Triomphe, a silver glitter shade, and White Shatter, a playful white crackle hue, inspired by the French Open. Learn more on serenawilliams.com
