OPI Joins Mariah Carey to Launch 18 New
Limited Edition Holiday Nail Lacquers

OPI announces the launch of 18 new limited edition holiday nail lacquers inspired by recording artist and international superstar Mariah Carey. This seasonal promotion includes an assortment of red, burgundy, maroon and chocolate brown hues, along with glitter-packed gold, bronze and pearl shades. Mariah Carey Holiday also features six new Liquid Sand™ lacquers, ranging from icy blue to frosted pink to sparkling graphite. Each of the Liquid Sand shades showcases OPI’s groundbreaking technology for a textured, matte finish infused with reflective sparkle.

“Mariah Carey is truly synonomous with the holiday season,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “People around the world listen to her festive, iconic songs – ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ is a personal favorite – and these 18 lacquers evoke the warmth, beauty, energy and positive spirit that’s present in Mariah’s music.

“This holiday season is all about red, glitter and texture for nails,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “With 18 shades, there’s a perfect hue for every occasion. The 12 crème and glitter lacquers include classic reds, champagne gold, and warm burgundies, while the six Liquid Sand shades should be worn without top coat for a matte finish in icy, frosted colors.”

What do you think? This is one of those rare occasions that I feel as though I want EVERY – SINGLE – POLISH in this collection!!! They are GORGEOUS!!


Back in November, OPI announced a huge collaboration with superstar and superdiva Mariah Carey. The time has come to reveal the beautiful shades, and today I have the first for you, a beautiful OPI Liquid Sand™ shade! OPI debuted Liquid Sand polishes with Mariah Carey’s collection, sparkly yet matte sand-like polishes with a textured, matte finish infused with reflective sparkle, and it is a really different finish! I like that OPI launched this new product with Mariah’s polish collection, essentially coming to market with TWO cool new things! The collection is divided into two parts, the Studio Shades (ranging from pink glitter to rich plum crème), and the Stage Shades (which include the four Liquid Sand polishes).

Liquid Sand polishes are a little different to both wear and apply. The directions ask that you apply a base coat, followed by 2 coats of polish, allowing each coat to dry a little. Liquid Sand polishes take some time to dry… they are quite thick due to the texture, and since you can’t finish off with a fast-drying top coat, you end up waiting for the polish to dry. (Waiting was weird for me too lol!) It wasn’t too long – it took a good 20 min for mine to dry to the touch.

Here is Can’t Let Go, a rich matte purple from the Stage Shades:


It is a GORGEOUS and vibrant purple!

You can see the texture in this angled shot with flash:


I have to admit, the Liquid Sand finish is very cool, and very now.  However, it felt a little as though I had a rough edge to my nail, the way it caught on everything lol… having textured polish on your nails really requires getting some used to! I kept wanting to pick at it, not to mention, it was pulling on my knitting haha. So definitely give yourself some time to adjust… but it is very, very pretty. And the sparkle is a nice surprise on such a matte background!


Well you know I wasn’t going to finish this post without showing you an alternate look:


That is Can’t Let Go with two really thick layers of top coat! This polish was a top coat-eater… I could have easily applied a third coat!Isn’t it gorgeous though?? I adored the way it looked with top coat!! It was as though I was wearing two different polishes. And the shiny version is crazy sparkly, and brings the vibrant purple to life in a different way. Just stunning!!

And you will be curious, I’m sure, so I will tell you that removal was surprisingly easy! It was nowhere near as difficult as glitter removal – no foil wraps! I held the cotton ball soaked in remover over a nail for a few seconds, and the Liquid Sand wiped off! Not bad for so much glitter!

So what do you think about this new texture, and do you like Can’t Let Go?
