The Emancipation Of Higher Expectations: OPI &Mariah Carey Winter 2013

We were given press information not so long ago, that Mariah Carey and OPI were teaming up for a collection of lacquers. After releasing that information, OPI showed us on their Facebook Fan Page some new lacquers, called ‘Liquid Sand’, and they seem to be matte, with a very rough texture. I asked you guys about it on my Facebook Fan Page… little did we know, this was part of the Mariah Carey Collection…. hmmm

Check out the preliminary photos, names, and color descriptions.

Shades are broken down into two parts- Studio Shades (the first 4), and Stage Shades (the last 4):


A Butterfly Moment




Pink yet Lavender


Anti- Bleak


Stay The Night


Get Your Number


Cant Let Go


The Impossible

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. Studio Shades include: 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!), and Anti-bleak (This deep, creamy purple will lift your spirits).

Stage Shades include: 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), and The Impossible (This matte fuchsia with star confetti will never give up). OPI Liquid Sand lacquers should always be worn without top coat.

Mariah Carey by OPI nail lacquers contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application. This promotion will be available beginning January 2013 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $9.00 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each nail lacquer.
