Tonight I have the entire 18 piece OPI Mariah Carey 2013 Holiday Collection to show you!  These look so amazing in person, you have no idea!  All of the Liquid Sand shades are unique to my collection!

This is a picture heavy post, but lets get started!

The Liquid Sands first!



Emotions is a basic black matte texture polish.

Kiss Me At Midnight


Kiss Me At Midnight is a vibrant icy blue texture with medium silver hex glitters.

It’s Frosty Outside


It’s Frosty Outside is a metallic silver texture with medium silver hex glitters.

Silent Stars Go By


Silent Stars Go By is a blush pink texture.

Make Him Mine


Make Him Mine is a stunning rose gold texture.

Baby Please Come Home


Baby Please Come Home is a metallic lilac texture.

All Sparkly And Gold


All Sparkly And Gold is a densely packed gold glitter.

My Favorite Ornament


My Favorite Ornament is a densely packed champagne glitter.

I Snow You Love Me


I Snow You Love Me is a clear base with large holographic silver circles within.  The base is a little on the thick side, but I was able to get about 3 glitters per dip.  The glitter is heavy and tends to sink, so I gave it a decent shake before applying.  I used 1 coat of I Snow You Love Me over All I Want For Christmas (Is OPI).

All I Want For Christmas (Is OPI)


All I Want For Christmas (Is OPI) is a classic red creme.

Cute Little Vixen


Cute Little Vixen is a deep red violet with shimmer.

Underneath The Mistletoe


Underneath The Mistletoe is a candy apple red with gold micro glitter scattered within.

In My Santa Suit


In My Santa Suit is the perfect holiday red with shimmer.

Visions Of Love


Visions of Love is a deep burgundy.

Sleigh Ride For Two


Sleigh Ride For Two is a rich chocolaty brown with red shimmer.

Warm Me Up


Warm Me Up is a deep brown with gold shimmer.

Ski Slope Sweetie


Ski Slope Sweetie is a gorgeous pearly white packed with gold micro shimmer.  I used 3 coats for this photo.

Wonderous Star


Wonderous Star contains densely packed gold glitter with small black hex glitters.

I ended up REALLY liking this holiday collection!  I used 2 coats for all the photos (except for I Snow You Love Me and Ski Slope Sweetie).  I had no application issues at all and these are great holiday shades!

    • The Liquid Sands in this collection are definitely some of my favorites that OPI has come out with so far!

  1. I am loving this collection. And your swatches are completely gorgeous!

  2. Beautiful swatches, Lisa! I have been fighting this collection since I saw the press releases, because I am not a big red fan, but your swatches make me excited to see it in person (hopefully soon!) and try these shades!

  3. These are all gorgeous and perfect for the holidays! I love Underneath the Mistletoe and In My Santa Suit best but I also love the glittery ones…and well, all of them. haha I’ve been curious about how these would look and I’m impressed. :)

  4. If you are using the liquid sand do you need to do a color underneath or are your pics just the liquid sand? They are so pretty!
