When I heard about OPI Holiday Collection 2013, Mariah Carey, I was extremely excited! You can check out my post to see the collection. There are 12 nail polishes and 6 Liquid Sands.

I picked out 4 Liquid Sands. The two I did not buy are It's Frosty Outside and Emotions.
For this post, I will focus on OPI in Kiss Me At Midnight.
Here's a closer look at the nail polish. It's very true to color and it's described as frosted ice blue. I don't know if I agree with ice blue, but it's definitely frosty.
Here's a look at the brush. I consider this as medium-width, my normal size brush.
Before I talk more about Kiss Me At Midnight (the one in the middle), I want to compare it to the other blue Liquid Sands I own. The one on the left is Get Your Number from the original Liquid Sand Collection (Mariah Carey's Liquid Sand Collection), and the far right is Tiffany Case from the Bond Girls Collection.
Here's the comparison on my nails. The left is Get Your Number, middle is Kiss Me At Midnight, and the far right is Tiffany Case. Personally, my favorite is Kiss Me At Midnight. This is my favorite color in blue, my #1.
Now back to Kiss Me At Midnight. This is 2 coats of polish.

Now for my overall opinion... Since I did a thorough review of Liquid Sand from the Mariah Carey's Collection, I will base my review from that. This is like all Liquid Sand, it dries to a sandy textured. With each day, the texture becomes less. The only difference I found with this polish compared to the others, this actually chips quicker than the rest. It started chipping on the 4th day. Most chips on the 5th. With that said, I found this interesting. It's the hardest to remove with nail polish. It's probably because of the chunks of silver glitters.

Would repurchase: Yes, I love the color and feel.

This one is really the prettiest when compared with the other two! Thanks for the swatches (so that I know which blue sand to put on my wishlist now). :D

OMG this is so pretty and refreshing!
it's always tricky with glitter or sand polishes. i don't think i'd go for full mani with them until i get some special base coat (or non-toxic liquid glue). lol.
wait, do you mean OPI finally ditched the pro-wide blush??! then i wouldn't mind having one of these soon. ;)

Its so pretty! I just can't get into textured polishes, I tried, but I just love my nails smooth. I will just admire on others =)

Yeah, this is my favorite as well. I hope you get a chance to try these Liquid Sands.

Awww~ You're so missing out, but I understand. :)

Ahleessa said...

Wow, I did not expect you to not wear glitter polishes! If you find a special base or non-toxic liquid glue, you should blog about it. :)


My bad! The brush is the same. I just always considered OPI as medium-width. I found a lot of polishes with thicker brush. For that reason, I never considered OPI as thick.
