Today I’ve got some of the Mariah Carey Holiday OPI collection to show you – I Snow You Love Me, All Sparkly and Gold, and Emotions, a black liquid sand. It’s a very glittery, shiny collection, as you’d expect!
I Snow You Love Me is a unique glitter polish. It’s hard for big brands to compete with indies for unique glitters, but impressively the patterned holo circles are something I’ve never seen before. The glitter is a bit sparse in the base, and I didn’t like the look of random dots on my nail, so I scraped the glitters off with a toothpick and carefully placed them on the nail over a base of OPI Die Another Day from last year’s Christmas collection. I love the look – very festive, like a crystal-studded bauble!
All Sparkly and Gold doesn’t mess around with its name – it’s sparkly, and gold, and doesn’t disappoint in either department. It’s a fine glitter in a clear base, and I used 3 thin coats for full coverage.
Emotions is a pure black liquid sand with shiny black hex glitter in it. I’m usually not a fan of creme texture polishes, but the hexes add sparkle and I quite like it. Shimmers are still my favourite type of texture polish, but this is a nice, subtle variation. It doesn’t quite look as bitumen-y in person as it does in these close-up, larger-than-life photos – it resembles charcoal more. I needed 3 coats for this, and had to let it dry completely (overnight) for this to look nice.
