OPI Liquid Sand Mariah Carey Collection review

Hey everyone! First of all I just wanted to thank all of you who entered my 900 facebook follower giveaway! I will have more giveaways soon! Today I finally have put together my review for the OPI Spring 2013 Mariah Carey collection Liquid Sand nail polishes. This liquid sand collection consists of four shades. They apply like regular nail polish but they dry to a matte, textured finish. I received a lot of compliments when I wore these at my job.
OPI Can't Let Go

First up is the shade Can't Let Go. This is a purple jelly base with purple glitter with small and large hex purple glitter. This is two coats.

OPI Get Your Number

Next is OPI Get Your Number. This is a blue jelly base with large and small blue glitter with some holo glitter mixed in. This is two coats. I was a little disappointed with this one. In the bottle, this looks so stunning and deep blue but on the nail it was lighter and I didn't get too much of the holo glitter on the nail. I might need more coats.

OPI Stay the Night

Next is OPI Stay the Night which is a black jelly base with small glitter mixed with larger red glitter. This is three coats. This was really pretty the first two days, then the red color from the glitter started rubbing off and just looked like silver glitter. I had to use three coats because two coats just looked grayish on my nails.

OPI The Impossible

Last but not least is OPI The Impossible. This was a pinkish jelly base with small, hex and star shaped pink glitter. As pretty as this looked on the nail, this one was a little annoying. This is two coats, it was very difficult to get the star glitter out the bottle and onto the nail. Then the star glitter dried but the ends were sticking up. The very next day one of the stars came off my thumb. Bummer. Next time I will try this with a gel topcoat to seal down the glitter.

All of these shades were surprisingly not that difficult to remove like other glitter polishes. Most of these lasted three to four whole days before they started chipping with is pretty good considering that you don't wear a topcoat with these. Some don't like the texture but I don't mind. Textured polishes look like a trend this year. I can't wait to check out the new Zoya textured polishes and compare them to these. Anyway, I think they are worth checking out if you haven't yet. I just thought they all looked prettier in the bottle than on the nail. What do you guys think of the textured polish trend? Thanks for reading!
