Nokia Company is introducing a new polish line in honor of their hot pink Lumia 900 phone. The “Nokia Lumia Pink” polish, designed by Duality Cosmetics, will only be available for three one-day events in Dallas, Denver and Los Angeles. But customers will be able to receive cellphone themed mani and pedis in participating salons from Nicki Minaj’s nail stylist Kandi Banks.
The Lumia 900 phone also comes in white, black and cyan but the hot pink model was the latest release, maybe to introduce some summer color to their line of phones.
Nokia says their phone colors are specialized because the paint lays not only on top of the plastic, but within the polycarbonate as well,
so scratches won’t show. We’re not sure if their nail polish can promise the same scratch-resistent wear, but it is the same vibrant shade.
Valerie Buckingham, director of marketing for Nokia North America, tells Women’s Wear Daily the collaboration marks “the next generation of mobility” because “phones are in your back pocket all day [and should represent] the most personal parts of your style.”
Nokia recently dropped price of the Windows phone down to $49.99. Though sales of the phone were initially strong, its success may have begun to wane after Microsoft announced that the Lumia 900 wouldn’t receive the Windows 8 upgrade.
But maybe being able to match your fingers to your tech might be enough of a perk for you to invest in the phone or polish.
Should more tech companies should start cosmetics orclothing lines? Tell us what you think in the comments.
