November 7, 2012 — HUNT VALLEY, MD — COVERGIRL announced today the signing of talented DJ duo and sisters NERVO, in a bold move that brings some of the most inspired girl power behind electronic dance music (EDM) today, to the brand’s lineup of talent. Joining an elite fleet of beauties who authentically rock the brand’s “doing you” crusade (most recently P!nk and Janelle Monae), the Australian-born siblings add the title of COVERGIRLs to an already long list of impressive personas, which includes visionary DJs, hit songwriters and trend-setting producers.
NERVO will make their public debut as COVERGIRLs doing what they do best – spinning in style at a special COVERGIRL-sponsored event in NYC on November 7. Ensuring all eyes are on the turntables, NERVO will be showcasing extraordinary nail art designs created using the brand’s much-anticipated launch of Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss collection. The event will also celebrate Rolling Stone’s “Top 25 DJs” issue hitting newsstands on November 9.
“We’re both so excited to join COVERGIRL and be part of an iconic brand that shares our beliefs,” said Liv Nervo. “It’s been really important for us to stay true to ourselves, our style, and our musical choices throughout the years. We believe individuality is a trend that will always be in style and that every woman should rock what makes them unique inside and out.”
“The NERVO sisters are paving the way for women in a male-dominated industry; their determination is inspiring to all young women working to break barriers and create their own path. With their immense talent and never-give-up mentality, they are the perfect spokesmodels to encourage fans worldwide to dance to their own beat,” said Esi Eggleston Bracey, VP and General Manager, COVERGIRL Cosmetics. “We are always looking for fun and fierce young women who can empower the next generation of COVERGIRLs, and NERVO does just that while bringing the heart and energy of EDM music to COVERGIRL.”
On the front lines of street style trends, NERVO will also serve as Brand correspondents in addition to appearing in promotional and digital COVERGIRL campaigns – sharing with the COVERGIRL community content inspired by their personal styles as well as the different looks they see at shows and on the road. Shared content will also include a range of DIY tips detailing how NERVO incorporates COVERGIRL products into their looks, from Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss to Clump Crusher by LashBlast Mascara and Outlast All-Day Lip Color.
“COVERGIRL is the right fit for us,” said Mim Nervo. “We believe beauty is a form of expression, just like music, and when done right, it makes us feel bold, beautiful and free.”
NERVO, signed to Wilhelmina Artist Management, has quickly become the hottest duo in EDM today, bridging the gap between the underground and mainstream. NERVO has built up a big profile around the world having opened for Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj on the Femme Fatale tour, plus DJ dates at big festivals such as Electric Daisy, Tomorrowland, Electric Zoo, Ultra, Lollapalooza and Winter Music Conference. Recently, NERVO made a historic debut as the only females voted onto the coveted DJ Mag 2012 Top 100 DJ’s Poll. As songwriters, NERVO co-wrote David Guetta's Grammy-award-winning hit "When Love Takes Over" featuring Kelly Rowland and penned songs for artists such as Ke$ha, Kylie Minogue, Miley Cyrus and The Pussycat Dolls. As artists, NERVO has released the top 10 Billboard Club Chart single “We’re All No One” and top 5 hit “You’re Gonna Love Again” plus a slew of collaborations with some of the genre’s biggest names including Afrojack, Steve Aoki and Armin Van Buuren, including this winter’s releases “Army” and “Like Home.” Having just returned to the U.S. after a summer- long residency at Ibiza’s superclub Ushuaia, they continue their residency in the new Mecca for dance music, Las Vegas, at the Wynn Hotel Group and have a monthly DJ mix show "NERVO Nation" on Sirius XM's BPM Channel 51.
