As most of us have already heard, the latest celebrity to partner with OPI for the annual mini collection coming out in January is Mariah Carey. First it was Katy Perry, then Nicki Minaj, and now Mariah! And I’m not counting the Nicole by OPI collections with Justin Bieber, the Kardashians and Selena Gomez!
It also seems like OPI uses these collections to release a “trendy” type of polish. With Katy Perry, OPI released for the first time their Shatter nail polish. Then with Nicki, they released a bar glitter polish as well as another shade of their Shatter polish. Now this time, they’ve come out with a new type of polish that they’re calling the “Liquid Sand” finish! Basically, its a matte glitter, but it still looks really cool!

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.
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
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
All of the Liquid Sand colors are meant to be worn without a top coat! I do wonder what they would look like with a top coat.

What do you guys think? Personally, I am excited to see what these look like in person! I love that there is finally a collection coming out with something new! Even if some of the colors may not be my style, I’m still excited to see a new concept in the polish world. I really am excited for “Stay the Night” and “Can’t Let Go” Liquid Sand polishes, and “Pink Yet Lavender” and “Anti-Bleak” in the regular line.
Which colors are you excited about? Have any of these been added to your wishlist?
This collection will be available in the beginning of January so be on the lookout!
