OPI Mariah Carey 2013 Collection: Stay the Night

OPI Stay the Night (3 coats)

I'm so excited about the new Kevin Bacon show on tonight! The only other thing I did today was go shopping with my husband where he ended up getting so many great clothes at JC Penny! I was looking into getting some jeans, but I could find anything. We stopped by the men's section and he found a suit jacket, 2 nice button-up shirts, a fall jacket, a tie, corduroy jeans, and a hat for $90! He basically got a whole new wardrobe. 

Confession time: I was a huge Mariah Carey fan when I was a kid. HUGE. My love has simmered over the years, but the new OPI collection made me reminisce my fandom. Part of this collection includes the new Liquid Sand polishes that are textured and matte. I only have one to show and it's Stay the Night which is a semi-matte black with bright pink glitter. I wouldn't call it fully matte because you can see the light reflecting on the nail, but it's pretty close. The texture didn't bother me at all, but if you are sensitive to a bit of roughness on your nail, these may not be for you. The formula and application was great, despite it being a bit sheerer than I expected (it needed a full 3 coats). I was also worried about removal, but I found it didn't need the foil method. Overall, I think this one looks really unique and cool if you don't mind the texture on your nail. If you didn't like the OPI polishes, other companies are jumping on the bandwagon with Zoya releasing their Pixie Dust polishes this week.

Brave! I don't think I am going to venture into the textures unless they are smoother finishes. I have one of the felt feeling ones in the Layla Soft Touch collection and that one does not bother me - but I have a huge aversion to sandpaper...cannot even use an emery's for me like nails on a chalkboard to many. I do like 2 of the shades in the Zoya Pixie Dust collection and in the softer shades the texture 'almost' looks like something I could deal with!

I think I may change my mind on how I feel about this 'liquid sand' look after seeing your post! At first I thought it looked like what you get when your manicure is still a smidge tacky and you go to bed waking up with sheet pattern on it :/ Maybe it's the color or something, but now I think it looks kinda cool!
