Naughty rumor or nice surprise? Right around this time last year, we found out that Mariah Carey had been pegged to design TWO limited-edition celebrity nail color collections with polish giant, OPI. The first—which rolled out Liquid Sand, a new glitter-glinting textured finish—was released in January with promises of a second on the near-future horizon. Well, it looks like Christmas may come early this year, you guys. Word on the street is that since we’ve been SO well-behaved, the second Carey-branded collection MIGHT be a whole heap of Holiday-inspired polishes, just as we’d hoped for. (Cue the five-octave squeals!)
And y’all know, barring this really goes down, it’ll be good because Mimi loooooves Christmas–she is the MOST festive. Fun fact: Merry Christmas, which birthed the eternal classic, “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” is the best selling female-voiced holiday album of ALL TIME (and that is not even an exaggeration of Kanye proportions). According to several nail blogs and MC fan sites, the collection is rumored to feature a whopping 18 new shades (12 polishes and six Liquid Sand) that will make wrapping presents feel as glamorous as hittin’ high notes in a bedazzled arm sling.
I don’t know about y’all, but this definitely has me feeling emotions, deeper than I ever dreamed of. If the rumors are true, will you be adding Mariah’s Holiday collection to your wishlist this year?
