MANICyours: Mariah Carey Holiday Collection by OPI

Mariah’s on a roll! She’s just launched 18 more nail lacquers with OPI for a Limited Edition Holiday Collection!

While her initial Studio and Stage collections were more ‘girly’ shades of purple, pink and blues, Mariah’s latest Holiday collection features deeper, rich colours to express the warmth of Christmas and New Years.

This seasonal promotion includes an assortment of red, burgundy, maroon and chocolate brown hues, along with glitter-packed gold, bronze and pearl shades and still features the Liquid Sand textures ranging from icy blue to frosted pink and sparkling graphite. Each of the Liquid Sand shades showcases OPI’s groundbreaking technology for a textured, matte finish infused with reflective sparkle.

With 18 shades, there’s a perfect hue for every occasion: The 12 crème and glitter lacquers include classic reds, champagne gold, and warm burgundies, while the six Liquid Sand shades should be worn without top coat for a matte finish in icy, frosted colors. To get you in the mood, here’s Mariah in her Christmas element (we certainly listened to it to get us in the mood for this post)!

OK, so back to the Mariah Carey Holiday collection! The nail lacquers include the following :

My Favorite Ornament Make this champagne glitter your new personal favorite.

All I Want for Christmas (is OPI) This marvelous maroon is present-ly my top choice.

Cute Little Vixen This deep red violet has foxy written all over it.

Underneath the Mistletoe Is my kiss as spicy-sweet as this candy-apple red?

In My Santa Suit This generously pigmented red is worth staying on the “nice” list.

Visions of Love I see this rich burgundy in my immediate future.

Warm Me Up This spiced coffee hits all the cold spots.

Wonderous Star This gold-flecked shimmer has heavenly shine.

All Sparkly and Gold What more can we say…the name says it all.

Sleigh Ride for Two There’s only room left for this dark hot chocolate.

Ski Slope Sweetie This golden pearl is everybunny’s favorite.

I Snow You Love Me Just like I snow you love this disco light confetti.

LIQUID SAND SHADES

Silent Stars Go By This blush of textured pink has parades of sparkle.

Baby Please Come Home Can’t wait to see you…in this textured and sparkling lilac.

Make Him Mine But make this textured glistening rose mine first!

It’s Frosty Outside This frosted silver is so icy it’s hot.

Emotions This dramatic sparkling coal has got me feeling fine.

Kiss Me at Midnight It’s time to fall in love with this frosted ice blue.

We reviewed the Four Mini Holiday Hits which includes mini sizes of Visions of Love, Warm Me Up, Wonderous Star, and All Sparkly and Gold.

 

This collection is great because you can mix and match the glitters with the crèmes for two different looks. The first is pairing Visions of Love which is an opaque rich burgundy with two coats of All Sparkly and Gold (think M.A.C.’s Antique Gold pigment in fine-glitter form) on your feature nails.

 

For the second look, Warm Me Up which is a play on a nice cup of coffee on a cold Winter’s day is slightly less opaque than Visions of Love but two coats will suffice. Add another two coats of Wonderous Star (fine silver glitter with a smattering of small black circular glitter) on your feature nails. This was so bling (in typical Mariah fashion) that we even had difficulty photographing it!

We love both combos and if you’re all about the bling, opt for painting all your nails with two coats of both glitter nail lacquers, we just think the contrast works better (and also makes for easier cleaning of nails)!

All products in the Mariah Carey Collection by OPI contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application.This collection is now available at Colour Culture (OPI Nail Bar), OPI Kiosk and leading nail, beauty, hair salons & spa centers throughout Malaysia.
