Gleeks (you know, fans of the hit TV series Glee) have been showing their devotion with Glee-inspired manicures.
Now nail color brand OPI, which has always kept customers chuckling with polish names such as "My Chihuahua Bites" and "Manicurist of Seville," is getting into the game. Its Sephora by OPI collection is taking a note from Glee with a nail polish collection that pays tribute to the award-winning series.
The new line will bear the hallmarks of OPI's usual cleverness, with inside-joke names like Miss Bossy Pants, a rich raspberry, Slushied, an opaque blue, and Sue vs. Shue, a navy blue. The colors will be available individually as well as in 6-color minisets this spring in Sephora stores.Continue reading...

And he's so well-established beyond fashion, a fake Twitter account of supposed Kaiser Karl musings boasts more than 300,000 followers.
Now the designer is going truly "masstige" with his latest venture: designing a capsule collection for Macy’s.Continue reading...
