Okay, so it’s just September, but I already have a holiday collection preview for you!
It’s the OPI Mariah Carey Holiday Collection, which is scheduled to be released in October.
Holiday collections are some of my favourites because they always have a lot of great colour choices, and the names are so festive!
I’m a fan of classic Mariah. She has the voice to sing like a bird, and her love ballads bring out the mushball in me. 😉
I also like how she’s evolved over the years. Although her current songs are very different than the ones from her Emotions or Daydream albums, I still find myself enjoying a lot of her tunes.
I put together a fun little collage of the polishes. Do any of these catch your eye?

Here is the official press release sent to me by PR:
All I Want for Christmas (is OPI)!
OPI Joins Mariah Carey to Launch 18 New
Limited Edition Holiday Nail Lacquers
OPI announces the launch of 18 new limited edition holiday nail lacquers inspired by recording artist and international superstar Mariah Carey. This seasonal promotion includes an assortment of red, burgundy, maroon and chocolate brown hues, along with glitter-packed gold, bronze and pearl shades. Mariah Carey Holiday also features six new Liquid Sand™ lacquers, ranging from icy blue to frosted pink to sparkling graphite. Each of the Liquid Sand shades showcases OPI’s groundbreaking technology for a textured, matte finish infused with reflective sparkle.
“Mariah Carey is truly synonomous with the holiday season,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “People around the world listen to her festive, iconic songs – ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ is a personal favorite – and these 18 lacquers evoke the warmth, beauty, energy and positive spirit that’s present in Mariah’s music.
“This holiday season is all about red, glitter and texture for nails,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “With 18 shades, there’s a perfect hue for every occasion. The 12 crème and glitter lacquers include classic reds, champagne gold, and warm burgundies, while the six Liquid Sand shades should be worn without top coat for a matte finish in icy, frosted colors.”

Mariah Carey Holiday nail lacquer shades each feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application. Liquid Sand nail lacquers should always be worn without a top coat.
Mariah Carey Holiday will be available October 2013, at professional salons and spas across Canada for $10.95 suggested retail for each nail lacquer.
In My Santa Suit and All I Want for Christmas (Is OPI) look very similar, don’t they? Almost like an exact match!
My favourites based on just the promo pictures are Kiss Me at Midnight (Yay! A blue Liquid Sand!) and Cute Little Vixen are definitely on my radar.
Although it’s far from Christmas, I can’t help but thinking about the snow and that giddy feeling you get when December 25 approaches. 🙂
