Yesssss, songbird Mariah Carey teamed up with OPI! Will it be a high note in her career? We’ll find out soon enough!
The Mariah Carey by OPI Collection contains 8 limited-edition shades with a unique texture they’re coining ‘Liquid Sands’. (Read all about it in the press release!)
There are 2 subgroups in this collection: the Studio Shades and the Stage Shades.
I’m a fan of Mariah Carey because, damn, that woman can blow!
Mainly, though, I’m a fan of her earlier work (i.e. her self-titled album, Emotions, Music Box, and Daydream), although I do like a lot of her newer songs. (Back in the day, I feel like her voice was clearer, and she did less ‘whisper-singing’.)
To date, I have all of her albums (except for Glitter or Greatest Hits), and as long as she keeps putting out new songs, I will keep buying her CDs. She’s so talented, and although there are other great voices in the industry, she has an undeniably unique gift.
Out of all the colours in this collection, I’m most drawn to the Stage Shades. 😉 Stay the Night and Get Your Number are making me drool from just the bottle images!
Once again, OPI’s PR has something en route to me, and it’ll be a surprise. I wonder which one(s) they sent! 🙂 Of course I’ll wear them and share my thoughts with you all!
P.S. This is unrelated, but…I wish that Lana Del Rey would team up with OPI and have a nail-polish collection. That would be incredible!
There are 8 colours in the Mariah Carey by OPI Collection.
Here’s the official press release sent to me by PR:
OPI Partners with Multi-Platinum International Superstar Mariah Carey to Launch Limited Edition Shades, Featuring the Revolutionary New Liquid Sand™ Nail Lacquers
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. 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 and Spas for $10.95 suggested retail for each nail lacquer.
