The Kardashian girls ink HUGE deal with OPI nail polish!

The six Kardashian ladies have inked a deal with OPI to launch their own line of nail polish. And they’re each being paid a HEFTY chunk of change in their deal!

All Kardashian women may not be created equal … but one of the biggest nail polish companies on the planet is sure paying them like they are … and get this — even the half-sisters are raking in BIG MONEY.

TMZ has learned … all 6 K-ladies (Kris, Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kylie and Kendall) inked a deal with OPI back in March to become spokeswomen for a Kardashian line of nail polish … featuring colors like:

Sealed with a Kris — an intense dark red tone
Kim-pletely In Love – a soft, delicate pale pink hue
Khloe Had a Little Lam-Lam – an eye-catching dark emerald hue
Listen to Your Momager! – a striking deep blue tone

According to the contract, obtained by TMZ, the family was guaranteed $600,000 up front — plus a cut of the nail polish profits.

Here’s the thing … the documents show the money is being divided EQUALLY between all of the women — that’s $100k-per-gal for all you math wizards out there.

Shocking considering Kim is in her own stratosphere when it comes to star-power … then again, they say charity starts in the home.

Fun Fact — each lady has requested to be paid through their very own corporations … which have names like Kimsaprincess Inc., 2Die4Kourt Inc. and KhloMoney Inc.

Nail polish is probably the ONE celebrity product I’d actually use. How about you?

I’m in love with OPI’s ‘Chick Flick Cherry’!

I just had to share. I recently bought OPI’s ‘Chick Flick Cherry’ polish, and I absolutely love it! It’s the perfect – fall color. Deep red.

Gorg!

I paid $7 – you can find it anywhere OPI polish is sold!

NARS & Marc Jacobs team up for an awesome collaboration!!

Fashion designer Marc Jacobs - and makeup genius François Nars have teamed up in a beautiful way! In a friendship that has lasted several years, the two are collaborating in an amazing way!

First Marc called upon François to helm the makeup backstage at his fall 2009 show (and he has been doing so ever since); then François persuaded Marc to sit in front of his lens, and pose (fully made-up) for his book, 15X15. Now the twosome is getting together once again for a new collaboration: cool—and clever—boxed sets of fingerless cashmere Marc Jacobs gloves and NARS nail lacquers.

Available in black cashmere with black-gold polish or purple cashmere with smoky lavender polish, the sets marry a major accessories trend—fingerless gloves not only make texting easier but they carry the same cool factor as a pair of open-toed boots—with one of the season’s best beauty looks. Of the polishes, which Nars mixed exclusively for this project, he says, “they don’t match the gloves, but complement them.” Everyone can appreciate that.

Marc Jacobs Fingerless Glove and NARS nail polish sets, $52; available exclusively at Nars 413 Bleecker Street, New York, 646.459.2323.

I love it!

NEW nail polish line – just for men!

To this day – our post on men’s nail polish back in 2007 – is our most talked about, most controversial post we’ve done so far. (If you have a minute you should check out the post and just read any of the 300 comments in the thread. Some really interesting stuff!)

Here at MHU, we’ve known for quite some time that there is a HUGE need for men’s beauty products – and we even talked about starting a men’s beauty site (but c’mon, who has the time!).

Here we’re getting our first look at a line of men’s nail polish that will release this month! More from Glamour:

Men’s skincare and grooming brand EvolutionMan will introduce a line of nail polishes to its assortment this month. I’m pretty sure Jared Leto is going to be excited about it. And we know we’ve got Johnny Depp on board. Will your guy be down for a MAN-icure?

The line consists of two sheer nail varnishes and three opaque nail ‘paints’ that retail for $14 each. Matte finishes and colors that veer from “the traditional black, blue and white that can be found on many a man’s nail” define the new range, according to the brand.

A shiny purple shade called Alter Ego (above) probably qualifies as the most daring. Although Dave Navarro has been wearing purple nail polish for years so what do I know.

What do you think? Would your guy ever wear polish?
