Press release: OPI Mariah Carey collection

Hi ladies :) Yes, you read correctly! OPI has worked with Mariah Carey to put together a collection and not just any old collection - it features Liquid Sand! Check out the press release for more information :)

Chart-Smashing Colours!

OPI pays homage to multi award winning artist and American Idol judge Mariah Carey as she puts her name to a range of nail lacquers, including OPI’s new Liquid Sand formula.

The 'Butterfly' singer collaborated with OPI on our new Liquid Sand formula, taking a hands-on approach in the creative process, selecting the colour shades and devising the names.

Mariah Carey’s music served as the inspiration for the glamorous, sultry and vibrant colour range. OPI’s new Liquid Sand lacquers dry to a textured, 'pebbled' effect leaving a sparkling textured finish with fine glitter particles. Textured finishes in the nails category have been a trendy topic for the spring and summer season, OPI predicts that this trend will continue through to Autumn 2013.

The Mariah Carey range features four new OPI Liquid Sand lacquers featuring ground breaking technology that offers a textured, matte finish infused with reflective sparkle. If worn without top coat, Liquid Sand lacquer gives nails a unique textured matte finish worthy of a superstar.

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

The sophisticated Studio Shades are as follows:

This sophisticated frosty tan nude will have everyone in a flutter, A Butterfly Moment. You will fall hopelessly in love with this shimmery copper, Sprung.

 This pink glitter with a lavender shimmer, shines like a superstar and is something to be admired Pink Yet Lavender. Your spirits will be lifted when you wear this deep, creamy purple Anti-bleak.

 The Liquid Sand Stage Shades include:

Make it last the whole night long in this dramatic matte black with a red glints of glitter particles, Stay the Night. Don’t forget to Get Your Number in this matte blue with dynamic sparkles.

The Impossible is always possible in this matte fuchsia shade with confetti star power that never gives up. You will be holding onto this matte purple with a dazzling sparkle in Can’t Let Go.

Mariah Carey by OPI nail lacquers contain no DBP, Toluene and are Formaldehyde FREE and features OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush designed to hold more Nail Lacquer, spread it more quickly and evenly, and deliver a smooth, streak-free application.

Mariah Carey by OPI will be available in January 2013 (if not before), at selected beauty salons, spas and David Jones nationally, $19.95 RRP. For your nearest OPI stockists contact 1800 358 999 or visit
Can I say WOW? :D I'm not the hugest glitter fan but I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how the Liquid Sand polishes fare and the difference between them and normal glitter polishes. I'm loving the look of Sprung and Get your number at the moment and I sure hope the real deal won't disappoint!

Which ones are you most interested in?

Thanks for reading!


  1. This collection looks amazing! I love Mariah, she was actually the first concert I ever went to!

  2. I couldn't say definitively that I don't like it, but, they look gritty on the pics, and I don't like gritty polishes :(

  3. Pretty colors, but does "liquid sand" just mean "gritty glitters"? I like my glitter smooth and shiny!

  4. I need every single sand color! LOVE texture polish!!!

  5. Ohhhh, I hope you enjoy the lacquers from the collection then :D

  6. Don't worry, you can layer on the top coat to even the finish out :) prepared to layer on several coats haha.

  7. Yay! I'd say you're one of the few, but yay :D Hope this won't hurt your wallet too much though... ;)

  8. It appears to be so, unfortunately! :( Get your number is so beautiful though, I'm prepared to pile on a few more top coats for that one! :D
