Mariah Carey by OPI Collection Preview

Even though it's not yet the holidays, I'm already starting to receive info on collections coming out early next year. :-) Please find below the press release for OPI's upcoming collaboration with Mariah Carey.

I'll link to swatches and reviews once I have those. (All info and images are courtesy of OPI.)

Chart-Smashing Colors!

OPI Partners with Multi-Platinum International Superstar Mariah Carey to Launch Limited Edition Shades, Featuring the Revolutionary New Liquid Sand™ Nail Lacquers

OPI announces the launch of eight new limited edition shades inspired and hand-selected by multiple Grammy Award winning recording artist Mariah Carey. These shades include four new OPI Liquid Sand™ lacquers featuring groundbreaking technology for a textured, matte finish infused with reflective sparkle.
OPI is extremely excited to work with Mariah,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “She’s very passionate about beauty and her nails in particular. Her music, which includes 18 Billboard No. 1 singles, served as a wonderful inspiration for glamorous, sultry, vibrant colors. 

“To pay homage to her iconic status, we wanted to launch her collection with something completely new and exciting. OPI Liquid Sand nail lacquer offers a never-before-seen look with a pebbled finish that lightly shimmers with fine glitter particles. Worn without top coat, Liquid Sand lacquer gives nails a unique textured matte finish worthy of a superstar.”

Mariah Carey by OPI includes four Studio Shades – ranging from pink glitter to rich plum crème – and four Stage Shades – each featuring the new textured finish. 

Studio Shades include:

A Butterfly Moment This sophisticated and frosty tan nude has us all a-flutter
Sprung Fall hopelessly in love with this shimmery copper
Pink Yet Lavender This pink glitter with lavender shimmer has superstar shine!
Anti-bleak This deep, creamy purple will lift your spirits

Stage Shades include: 

Stay the Night Make it last in this matte black with red glints
Get Your Number Wearing this matte blue with sparkles is a great call
Can’t Let Go Hold onto this matte purple with dazzling sparkle
The Impossible This matte fuchsia with star confetti will never give up

OPI Liquid Sand lacquers should always be worn without top coat.

This promotion will be available beginning January 2013 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for  $9.00 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each nail lacquer.


  1. Hmmm, I'm wondering what the liquid sand effect will be like. Seems a little odd! Still, I'm a Mariah tragic so from the outset I'm intrigued by these shades :p

    1. I'm a huge Mariah fan, so I am also excited for this collection. Not sure about the liquid sand effect, but we will see. :-)

  2. I have to try the liquid sand. And possibly more than one of them :)

  3. Is liquid sand like the suede ones coming from Julep? Seems interesting but none of these colours flash out at me as ones I'd want.

    1. My understanding is that the suedes are like matte smooth polishes, whereas the liquid sand is like matte glitter, so it will probably be gritty.

  4. Can't let go really looks very interesting, it will be nice to see actual swatches - thanks for sharing!
