OPI Holiday 2013 - Mariah Carey Collection swatches (Photo heavy)

Sunday, October 13, 2013

Think of Mariah Carey and Christmas and you are more than likely going to start belting out the holiday tunes. OPI released its 2013 Holiday Collection and it was inspired by Mariah. These polishes will have you prancing around and cavorting under the mistletoe for sure.

There are 18 polishes in the collection. Six are Liquid Sands and I don't have swatches of those but Cosmetic Sanctuary has them on her page. So take a look!

Let's move on to the holiday goodies and swatches. There a lot of photos so I didn't make them as large as usual. Click on the photos for larger versions.

My Favorite Ornament -is a gorgeous champagne glitter. Amazing sparkle and great coverage. I used two coats for this photo and also used a top coat.

All I Want for Christmas (is OPI ) - is a deep red shade. The photos make it look a little brighter than it is in real life.  It's the perfect holiday shade. This is two coats.

Ski Slope Sweetie - is a pearl polish with golden accents. I love the shimmer in this one. Gold seems to be radiating from each and every nail. It's almost a halo. This is two coats. This may be holiday but I see this one being used in lots of weddings!

I Snow You Love Me - is a fun glitter topcoat with holographic circular glitter. The glitter wasn't really hard to get on the brush but it took a couple of swipes to get it on the nail. But that never surprises me with large glitter.
