As you probably know by now Mariah Carey by OPI is a new limited edition eight-piece collection out for spring. This collection features eight shades, four of them being a new finish called Liquid Sand. What the what??
Liquid Sand is basically a glittery polish that gives you a textured sand-like finish. You don’t wear a top coat with it, so it’s pebbly and matte when it dries. Now normally I am not a fan of textured nails…but only when they aren’t meant to be textured. I honestly didn’t think I would like these, but I really do! I wore one of them right away after swatching it and really like it. It’s not as “snaggy” as I assumed either. In other words, I didn’t wind up with cat hairs attached to my nails at every turn.
And just to toss this out into the world, I REALLY wish a big brand like OPI would partner with a non-pop artist one of these days for a collection. How about a Nine Inch Nails or Marilyn Manson collection? Maybe A Perfect Circle could do one and it could be called “A Perfect Collection”? I dunno, but it would be cool I think to have some variety!
