LOS ANGELES (Reuters) Teen idol Justin Bieber is launching a line of nail polish inspired by his biggest music hits, nail care company OPI said on Monday.
With shades like One Less Lonely Glitter (lavender), Prized Possession Purple (grape), Give Me the First Dance (silver) and Me + Blue (dark blue), the first six colors in the line for Nicole by OPI will be sold exclusively through Wal-Mart retail stores in December 2010.
The remainder of the "One Less Lonely Girl" collection from the 16 year-old singer will be released in Wal-Mart stores in January 2011 before being distributed more widely in February.
"We are thrilled to team up with such a widely beloved singer who has made major waves in pop culture," Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI's vice president and artistic director, said in a statement.
"The colors in the collection are modeled after the upbeat and emotive nature of Justin's songs, as well as his own unrivaled energy," she added.
"One Less Lonely Girl", from Bieber's 2009 debut album, is one of the most successful singles in the young musician's career after he was discovered on YouTube. His second album "My World 2.0" debuted at No.1 on the U.S. charts in March and he has already sold over five million albums worldwide.
The nail polish line is the latest product tie-in for Bieber, who earlier this year was named the most-searched celebrity on the Internet.
The baby-faced singer recently became the spokesman for anti-acne skin line Proactiv, and a range of Justin Bieber dolls and toys will be in stores this Christmas.

As if I needed another reason to hate him.
Well that closet door just blew wide open, didn't it?
Why is a male teen heartthrob developing a line of nail polish?
What the hell is going on in this world that it’s all of a sudden cool or acceptable for boys to wear nail polish?
God help us.
Why not. The further feminization of men/boys.
My Bieber is stuned.
I’m stuned by this story.
OK, I’m sure Justin understands by now the name of the game he’s in, but I think this qualifies for child abuse/exploitation.
And guess who’s daughter has been hanging his posters on her wall???? *UGH*
It’s to go along with his collection of Playboys
Still don't really have any clue who this guy is despite seeing his name a lot. But I don't care enough to take five seconds to Google it.
I'm guessing he is 2010's version of Hanson?
The male emos and goths wear that dark-purple-magenta, dried-blood color of nail polish, or black polish, and I don’t find it particularly feminine, I find it creepy.
The new prototype male, I guess..
I just can’t picture Bobby Sherman doing this.
lol - I’ll have to remember that.
