Joslyn James On Her New Nail Polish Line: 'There's A Lot About Me That People Don't Know'

Joslyn was shot into the spotlight when her affair with Tiger Woods became public, but now she’s getting press for quite a different reason.

With names like “More Than A Mistress” and “36DD,” Joslyn James’ “Shameless” nail polish collection has been getting some interesting reviews. Joslyn tells exclusively where the polish names came from and how their proceeds will help victims of domestic violence and cancer research and awareness.

Where did the inspiration for the line come from?
“I’d been approached by a couple different companies, even before i went into the adult business about starting a skincare or cosmetics line. People have said I have really great skin — I don’t really see it, but I’ve been told. Even girls that don’t wear makeup, wear nail polish. I thought I might as well do something that I believe that everybody can wear. I just want people to care about their nails and toes, hands and feet. That’s the first thing I look at, hands and feet. ”

How did you come up with the names for the polishes?
“I brainstormed actually for quite some time. I enlisted some girls and guys to help me out. People think I said “More than a Mistress,” but it was actually my friend’s idea. I just came up with [the name] “Blackberry Blue.'”

Who are your celebrity style and beauty inspirations?
“I love Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez, Victoria Beckham and Madonna. They’re not scared to do the wrong things, they set trends…they take it to a different level. I really admire them.”

Is there anything you would like people to know about the polish line?
“Part of the proceeds are going to domestic violence programs and cancer research and awareness. My mom has stage four lung cancer. There’s a lot about me that people don’t know. They want to put me in a box.”

Does this make you think differently about Joslyn’s upcoming polish collection?
