OPI The Impossible

7:00 AM

Today I have one of the new OPI Mariah Carey polishes for you.  This is one of the liquid sand polishes, which is a new textured polish.  I know I'm a little late on swatching these, you can find them all over the internet.  I had promised myself I'd get these OR the Zoya Pixies and since the Pixie's were a little cheaper for me I went with those.  Then my husband found these for a steal and since I've always loved Mariah....well...here they are anyway!  This one is a red jelly with larger glitter pieces and then some stars.  A word of advice, the stars sink to the bottom of the bottle so if you want them on your nails, you'll want to sit the bottle upside down for a few minutes before polishing.  Shaking seemed to be less effective for  me but I went ahead and swatched without the stars.  These actually go on very easily and dry pretty quickly.  They say to use base coat but no top coat but I skipped both.  You can tell when it's dry because it has a really matte textured appearance, even though it's still sparkly.  I waited a little longer between coats than I'd normally do with polish because I wanted to make sure it would dry all the way fairly quickly but it still dried much faster than I expected.  It wasn't difficult to remove either, like some glitters can be.  I had no staining with these, no damage to my nail from removal, and they're not exceptionally rough.  It's sort of the same way a fine grit file feels.  Here's a close-up of this one for you:

What do you think? Love it or hate it?

    1. Lol glad to help! I didn't dislike them as much as I feared although this wasn't my favorite of the bunch!

  2. Oh I love it! It may not be the most beautiful of the bunch, but it's certainly unique and very pretty!

  3. I love the liquid sand polishes! And to be honest, I like this way better without the star glitter! lol.

  4. I didn't like the colors, only this one. This is also the only one I got. They don't last very long on me though, and the texture is weird. :)

  5. I really like these. I have "Stay the Night" and "Can't Let Go" They aren't my favorite polishes, but I think they're fun for a change of pace.

  6. LOVE IT!!! Need it, really!
    Great swatch ;)

  7. glad you got it to work without the stars - they ruin an awesome polish !!!
