Washington: Mariah Carey is working the nail polish brand OPI to introduce two new collections that will go on sale next year.

The singer says she can`t wait to get to work as she`s always loved doing manicures.

“I actually went to beauty school in 11th grade so I could have something to fall back on, so believe me, I`ve done my share of manicures as well as getting them. OPI knows that the polish you use makes a big difference not only in the look, but in the care of your nails and that``s why I believe in the brand,” a website has quoted her as saying.

The Grammy-winning singer is perfect for the job, as “nails are part of her personality,” according to Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, executive vice president and artistic director of OPI.

“I really have always looked for celebrities for whom nails are very important, and it is not something you just Photoshop on a picture. She was very much part of the colour selection,” she added.
