My goodness, I feel like this has been a non-stop exciting week of announcements! As some of you know I recently became a spokesperson and partner in Knock Out nail polish. They launched over 5 years ago and were the first brand to do matte nail polish and having I was obsessed with them from the start. About 3 years ago I met one of the founders, and we have since became good friends. So getting to be apart of the brand this year was a big honor for me. As is the big announcement that Knock Out is the exclusive nail polish brand for Hedwig on Broadway starring Neil Patrick Harris and created a custom KOxHedwig collection for the show.
The collection consists of four shades, Bombshell (matte yellow), Hedwig (red glitter), Sugar (white glitter sparkle), and Midnight (navy glitter). Since up until now Knock Out has only done matte, creating our first glitter collection is very exciting. Mike Potter, the founder and creator of Knock Out, is the infamous makeup artist behind the makeup and wigs in both Hedwig the movie and on Broadway so it’s been exciting watching him work with Neil Patrick Harris and all of his support with the collection. He wore our Midnight shade at the Tony awards — and if you heard his acceptance speech, Mike got an amazing shout out. (You can see the feature on his manicure on allure.com).
Mike is also Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs makeup artist and she debuted our Sugar shade at the Oscars this year where she was both nominated and performed during the awards. Karen O has been the face of the line since it launched in 2009.
The KOxHedwig collection is $20 and available at hedwigbroadwaygoods.com
