Mani Monday – OPI Liquid Sand Mariah Carey Nail Polish Reviews

I tried out a few of the new Mariah Carey Liquid Sand Opi Polishes ($8-$10) over winter break, here are a couple of the shades. I’ll update the post as I try out the other two.

First up was “Get Your Number,” which is a very blue-based lavender  The finish is weird and gritty, but I do like it and it lasted a lot longer than similar textured matte polishes from the late 90’s. It’s rough, but not like sandpaper, more of a plastic velvet(?) I really liked the different glitter sizes in the polish and kept rubbing my fingers over the rough texture which was oddly soothing. Even so, the whole thing is a little gimmicky, so it’s not something I’ll be using all the time – more of a novelty polish. Still worth playing with.

Next I tried the “pink” shade, “The Impossible,” which was more of a coral color. The glitter is really pretty here, which was a big selling point for me. I didn’t like this color as much as the purple one, though. I think the texture worked better with a shade that wasn’t quite as bright.

Here it is under the flash, which is the only time the pink really picks up. The pictures without flash are a better representation of what it normally looks like unless you’re under really bright fluorescent lights.

Just to see what would happen, I put a top coat over one finger. It took two coats to smooth it out, but the end result looked like a jelly sandwich nail.

I actually liked this color and the rainbow glitter a lot better with the jelly finish, so I ended up doing the whole hand this way. So Sparkly!
