Team USA For OPI; Roberto Cavalli Wants To Do Makeup; And More…

After the Summer Olympics basically became free advertising for a number of nail polish brands whose lacquer colors were worn by athletes across the globe in the name of competitive finger flair, OPI has found a way to capitalize on the buzz. The brand has just named gymnast Gabby Douglas and volleyball superstar Misty May-Treanor as spokeswomen for its GelColor line. [WWD]

Twilight star Ashley Greene has gone Rihanna red for fall—and presumably for the film saga’s final press junket, which begins next month. [E!]

Never mind what you’ve heard; nail polish should not be refrigerated to prolong its life. Apparently, the cold can cause it to thicken. Better to store your favorite varnishes at room temperature, away from direct sunlight. [Fox News]

“When are we going to start with the cosmetics?” Roberto Cavalli has reportedly asked Coty, which holds the designer’s beauty license. “They said we had to do the perfume first. But my world, my fashion, is colors,” Cavalli continued. We’re ready. [WWD]

Here’s the only thing I’m going to say about the Gabby Douglas hair brouhaha currently making the rounds on the blogosphere: Her slicked-back ponytail was the last thing I noticed while watching the lithe 16-year-old best not one but two Russian gymasts in the women’s all-around Olympics competition. Also, the image of Douglas’ biological mother and her home-stay Iowa mother crying and hugging in the stands still makes me tear up, 24 hours later. [NPR]

In other Olympic beauty news, swimmer Ryan Lochte has revealed his favorite fragrance brand—to a lovestruck fan via Twitter, no less. And that fragrance brand is…Creed. [Twitter]

A first cut of Blake Lively’s Gucci Premiere video shot by Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn is making the Internet rounds this week. In it, Lively wears a series of body-hugging gowns, spritzes herself with the fragrance, and walks in slow motion a lot. If that doesn’t spell retail success, I don’t know what does. [E!]

They’ve done it! The L.A.-based jewelry brand Azature has created the world’s most expensive nail polish. Ringing in at a whopping $250,000, the single bottle of lacquer contains 267 carats of crushed black diamonds, in a sheer black base. Take that, OPI. [Daily Mail]
