OPI: Mariah Carey Collection

So I have finally had time to sit and swatch so I reached for the Mariah Carey Collection by OPI that came out for Spring 2013. It's an 8 polish collection that consists of 4 Studio Shades and 4 Stage Shades. The Studio Shade are you typical OPI polishes while the Stage Shades are the liquid sand polishes that had everyone going crazy to get. The first ones I am going to show are the Studio Shades. They all had the typical OPI formula. All of them were pretty opaque except for Sprung which took 3 coats to reach opacity.

A Butterfly Moment-
a peachy nude with a chunky golden shimmer
2 coats, no topcoat


An plum creme
2 coats, no topcoat

a copper shimmer
3 coats, no topcoat

Pink Yet Lavender-
metallic baby pink glitter topcoat with holo micro glitter
2 coats over A Butterfly Moment, no topcoat

The next set are the Stage Shades or the liquid sand texture polishes. I found it best to apply a thin first coat then a thicker second coat. All of the swatches shown have had hours worth of dry time.
Stay The Night-
a black textured base with hot pink glitter
2 coats, no topcoat

Can't Let Go-
a purple textured base with purple hex glitter
2 coats, no top coat

The Impossible-
a pink toned red textured base with red hex glitter and star glitter
2 coats, no topcoat

Get Your Number-
a blue textured base with scattered holo goodness
2 coats, no topcoat

Get Your Number was my personal favorite of the collection with Sprung a close second. I want to mention that I did not have any issues with getting stars on my nails with The Impossible. They were however almost impossible to see and did not lay flat. I ended up picking off the stars because they annoyed me that much. Removal of these liquid sand polishes was pretty easy as well, no where near as hard as regular glitter polish.
**I purchased this collection myself
