Another day, another dollar!

Kendall and Kylie Jenner launched their nail polish line with Nicole by OPI called “Kardashian Kolors” in 2011, and it was a very profitable venture. The 17 and 16 year olds named their polishes “All Kendall’ed Up,” “Kendall on the Katwalk,” “Rainbow in the S-ylie” and “Wear Something Spar-kylie,” as part of their collection with Kim, Kourtney and Khloe.

Kendall and Kylie were just 13 and 15 when the polish line launched, and it was extremely profitable for the girls.

RadarOnline.com obtained a copy of documents filed in Los Angeles court last year, revealing that the five sisters were offered $600,000 total and decided to split it evenly. Kendall and Kylie each made $100,000 for lending their names to the line through 2012.

What did they have to do to earn that six-figure paycheck? Not much. The girls had to attend a one-day photo shoot and a one-day media tour, as well as tweet and blog about the polishes on their own time. They also agreed to “use reasonable efforts” not to promote any other nail lacquer.

Since then, Kendall and Kylie’s fame has skyrocketed and both have gone on to secure more business deals. Together, they have a PacSun clothing collection and have endorsed Venus Gillette razors. Kendall has developed a lucrative modeling career and is currently one of the faces of Agua Bendita Swimwear.

OK! Magazine reported they make $5,000 per episode of E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” Kendall allegedly commands up to $5,000 per promotional tweet, while Kylie can bring in $3,000.

Damn these Jenner girls!

 

OPI Fall/Winter 2013 The San Francisco Collection

OPI Launches the San Francisco Collection For Fall/Winter 2013
San Francisco by OPI brings street chic style with West Coast flair to nails and toes for Fall/Winter 2013. This new collection features a palette ranging from sky and sea-colored hues of blues and gray to reds, burgundies and browns inspired by some of the city’s most iconic elements – Chinatown, the Golden Gate bridge and the Embarcadero. This fall mélange is mixed with texture, seen in three new Liquid Sand nail lacquers in earthy hues of taupe, blue and gray: It’s All San Andreas’s Fault, Wharf! Wharf! Wharf! and Alcatraz…Rocks. Liquid Sand lacquers dry to a textured, matte finish, infused with reflective sparkle.

“To me, the women of San Francisco and the city itself really epitomize today’s multifaceted beauty consumer,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “San Francisco offers a European flair with distinct West Coast attributes. These elements inspired a collection of urban chic nail lacquer shades, thanks to the sophisticated combination of high fashion and eclectic street style.

“With twelve colors ranging from moody grays and blues to garnet and ruby jewel tones, these lacquers are designed to accessorize fall’s hottest looks, from military details to winter whites,” continues Weiss-Fischmann. “On fall runways, models were seen wearing luxurious textures from head to toe. The three new Liquid Sand nail lacquers incorporate the texture trend through nails, with rich matte finishes in colors to complement the season’s fashion.”

  • A-Piers to Be Tan – I shore do like this chocolaty tan.

Limited-Edition Nail Polish Shows Support For Newtown School Shooting Victims

Sandy Hook Promise, the non-profit organization founded following the school shooting massacre in Newton, has created a limited-edition nail polish with proceeds going to the victims.

The polish has been released by OPI, and they’re calling it “Sandy Hook Green.” OPI donated 10,000 bottles to the organization.

The polish is not for sale, but will be given out this weekend to people who donate $10 to Sandy Hook Promise during a Salon-a-Thon event at Ricci’s Salon and Spa in Newtown on Sunday.

Two mothers whose children survived the attack came up with the idea after each had their nails painted green at a local salon as a way to cope with their grief.

On Dec. 14, gunman Adam Lanza, who had killed his mother at their Newtown home, went to Sandy Hook Elementary School and opened fire with an assault rifle, killing 20 children and six educators. He killed himself as police arrived at the school.

After the shootings, many wore ribbons made up of the school’s colors, green and white, to show support for the victims. Green has now also become a symbol for the gun control movement.

How great of OPI!
