OPI Mariah Carey Collection Swatch & Review

Hi everyone!!  I'm so excited to show you the new Mariah Carey collection from OPI!!



A Butterfly Moment


A Butterfly Moment is a soft peachy pink with a pale gold shimmer.  I didn't think I would be crazy about this one when I saw it in the bottle, but it is actually very pretty and sweet.  The formula was rich and easy to apply.
Shown is two coats of A Butterfly Moment.



Pink Yet Lavender


Pink Yet Lavender is a clear coat loaded with light pink hexes and silver holographic micro hexes.  The formula was smooth and the glitters applied very easily.  I really like the delicate glitzy appearance with this one.
Shown is one coat of Pink Yet Lavender over A Butterfly Moment.



Anti-Bleak


Anti-Bleak is a medium purple creme that leans more toward red violet.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.
Shown is two coats of Anti-Bleak.



Sprung


Sprung is a coppery shimmer.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply, but even with a top coat, the finish was a little on the dull side.
Shown is two coats of Sprung.



Stay the Night


Stay the Night is a black jelly with hot pink micro glitter and liquid sand, which is what provides this gritty finish.  I was on the fence about the idea of the liquid sand look prior to trying it, but it's actually kind of cool.  However, be cautious when touching your eyes!!
Shown is three coats of Stay the Night.


I also wanted to make sure to show you how this looks with a top coat.  It took two coats of top coat to achieve a smooth finish.  As far as Stay the Night goes, I honestly prefer it without a top coat.



Can't Let Go


Can't Let Go is a deep purple jelly with purple hexes and silver holographic micro hexes, as well as liquid sand.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.
Shown is three coats of Can't Let Go.


Here is Can't Let Go with two coats of top coat.  I'm not sure I have a strong preference here.  I really like them either way.



The Impossible


The Impossible is a bright red jelly with a pink undertone packed with silver stars, pink hexes and silver holographic micro glitter, as well as liquid sand.  As you can see, the gritty finish is not nearly as strong with this one.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.
Shown is three coats of The Impossible.


Here is The Impossible with two coats of top coat.  I really like the way this one shines with top coat.  It has that great squishy jelly look!



Get Your Number


Get Your Number is a blue jelly packed with mini and micro holographic glitters.  The formula was smooth and easy to work with.
Shown is three coats of Get Your Number.


Here is Get Your Number with two coats of top coat.  I think it's safe to say that I absolutely love the way this one looks with a top coat.  The glitters look amazing suspended in the blue jelly!  It's fun and sparkly!!!


Overall, I'm pretty stoked about this collection.  I had my concerns about the liquid sand, but it's so much fun to wear!  I hope you enjoyed!

Happy Painting!

  7. The Liquid Sands are matte polishes. Why did you cover them with a top coat?

    1. Because I wanted to make sure to display how they would look with a top coat, since it gives it a whole new look. :)
